Bourke Street Imperial


Rightfully sits atop this list as the ultimate venue to watch the Olympics, and really any kind of sporting event. The imperial is like Betty Cuthbert in 1956, just too good. Here you'll find three levels of premium sports pubs, with more screens than a JB HI-FI and a spectacular beer garden.

Madison Hotel

Surry Hills

The Madison could be a mirage, it could be a dream. How is a 24-hour pub allowed in Sydney in this day and age. Actually, let's not question it. Let's just head down and enjoy the Olympics at any time of the day or night.



Kicks could be one of the greatest sporting pubs in the whole world. This place is straight-up sport obsessed, they show everything. Seriously, if it's being broadcast anywhere around the globe, Kicks will probably have it on. The atmosphere at this place when a big fixture on is unrivalled, head down and see for yourself.

The Beaconsfield Hotel


The undisputed heavyweight world champion when it comes to best pubs to watch the Olmpics in the west. If you're in Perth, it's worth the quick trip down the highway to watch the games on the huge big screen and the Beaky.

Molly Malone's Irish Tavern

Surry Hills

Guaranteed to be packed to the rafters anytime Ireland is competing in anything, anywhere, Molly Malone's is Sydney's hidden gem for live sports. These guys operate late, and are passionate about sport, so Molly's ticks all the boxes for the Olympics.

London Tavern Hotel


The Tav is the Grant Hackett of the pub world. A champion performer that is bound to excite, but still humble and down to earth. The London is located in the heart of Australia's greatest sporting precinct and specialises in showing all of the biggest moments live and loud.

Burleigh Town Hotel

Gold Coast

Simply one of the best sporting venues in the sunny state, the Burleigh is just 10 minutes from Surfers Paradise. Boasting a newly renovated sports bar featuring 16 high def screens, you won't miss a minute of the games in here.

Ferry Road Tavern


Another QLD marvel, the Ferry Road is a sports fans dream. With a recent reno ensuring you get to watch the games in style.
