Places with a lively atmosphere on match day
Watching the game? From the FIFIA World Cup to Wimbledon to the Super Bowl, whether it's football or rugby, horse racing, cycling or darts, these Edinburgh bars with big screens and big match atmosphere are brilliant for seeing sporting events.
Beer & Skittles
Beer and sport are equally celebrated in this basement bar, with a decent outside space and lots of strategically placed wide screens so you don't miss a moment of the action.
Spacious, friendly and on the way to Murrayfield, the Ghilli Dhu's big screens are particularly well-used during the Six Nations and other rugby events.
McSorleys Irish Bar
Sure, you'll find football and rugby on at McSorleys, but why not drop by for one of their Gaelic football matches for something a bit different?
In the heart of the West End and well-loved for its beer, whisky and food, this is also one of Edinburgh's definitive rugby pubs.
The Three Sisters
This pack-em-in Saturday night bar on the Grassmarket also happens to have one of the best big screen set-ups in Edinburgh.
As the name suggests this Tollcross bar (and its Leith sister the Tourmalet) are obsessive about the Tour De France and other big-name cycling races.
