Where To Watch Rugby World Cup 2019

Places to watch RWC 2019.

Posted by
OMG, did you hear that? The hymn of Noqu Mas, the chant of Swing Low Sweet Chariot, the awe-inspiring Haka - all this, is the sound of Rugby World Cup (RWC) 2019 kicking off for the ninth time. It takes place in Japan this year and starts today (20th of September) with a grand ceremony and ends on the 2nd of November. 
So, for every rugby fan out there in Colombo, we're compiling this list of places to catch the game/s live on the big screen.

Blackout Restaurant & Cafe

The only rugby-themed cafe in the country, Blackout Restaurant & Cafe is super stoked about the big day. With speciality menu items, offers on your favourite beers (yep, now they've got a bar too!), a photo booth, giveaways, promotions, and card offers, they've got a whole bunch of interesting stuff to make it a series of happening nights. 

Playtrix Sports Bar and Cafe

Watch your favourite teams live in action, at the Playtrix with some of the best pub food in the city. Plus, it's BYOB so you can bring your favourite drink as you catch the game on the live screen. 

Next Innings

Next Innings is ready to kick off the season with 14-ft video walls, 75-inch screens and some excellent food and drinks - from Small Island Iced Tea to Neapolitan pizza cooked from the world's only leather ball mosaic-tiled pizza oven.

Hawker Park (Trillium Hotels Colombo)

Catch the game/s on the big, fat screen at Trillium Boutique Hotel's very own taproom - The Hawker Park. They've got the most affordable range of cocktails and some fantastic Crackling Pork Belly. 

The Irish

Get your gang together hand head on over to The Irish for the live streaming of RWC 2019. They've got a couple of super interesting boozy offers for pitchers, towers and bills above Rs. 7000. 

The Lion Pub

If you live around Mount Lavinia, The Lion Pub is your safest bet to check out the score. Make sure you have a taste of their HBC while you're at it. Nothing beats the HBC - Lion beer combo at The Lion Pub. 

The Ocean by O!

If your idea of the game day involves good food, fine booze, magnificent views of the Colombo shoreline, and a breath of sea breeze, The Ocean by O! is the spot. Their take on HBC is quite brilliant too, which would go very nicely with their Ocean Special Sour concocted with Arrack, Passion and Lime Juice. 

& Co. (The Steuart)

& Co Pub at The Steuart offers a special one-for-one deal for selected beverages throughout the match time. If it's valid for cocktails, trust me, you're in for a treat - especially with their Strawberry Mojito. 

The Manchester

Get your rowdy on at The Manchester while enjoying the RWC 2019 series on the big screen. You can also participate in their special rugby-themed pub quiz next Wednesday and leave with a bunch of gifts, including 3 signed rugby balls, and 24 VIP passes to Asia Rugby Sevens. 

Classic Sports Pub

Classic Sports Bar is live streaming the RWC 2019 series this year, at their recently furnished premises in Wellawatte. If you happen to find yourself here, try the Bull Frog and get the game mode on! 

Arthur's Pizza

Raise a slice as your favourite team wins the match at Arthur's Pizzeria. It's yet another good option to watch the game if you live around Mount Lavinia. 

Breeze Barracuda

A sister resto to Barracuda, Breeze Barracuda is broadcasting the series live with exciting promotions on liquor, food, and quite a bit of sea breeze, of course. 

Cheers Pub (Cinnamon Grand)

Cheers in Cinnamon Grand does a good plate of nachos to pair with your drinks as you watch your favourite teams go head to head at RWC 2019. 

Loft Lounge (Colombo Courtyard)

RWC 2019 arrives a bit late to The Loft in Colombo Courtyard. Unlike the other places in this list, they're planning to live stream the series starting from 28th of September (next Saturday) with the quarter-finals. 

Patio 25

Patio 25 down Milagiriya avenue has arrangements to stream the game live on the big screen, along with beer bucket, bottle deals and food promotions. 

Floatz Pub (Marino Beach Hotel)

Marino Beach Hotel plans to telecast the game live, at their very own pub, Floatz.
