Russian sports fans are well taken care of when it comes to watching sporting events in the heart of Moscow. The capital of Russia is full of sports bars and pubs. Now that the World Cup is coming to Russia, more and more places are getting ready for worldwide visitors. Even if you’re not in favour of football or hockey matches, (as most Russians are), you can certainly enjoy the unique celebratory vibe. Here are the best sports bars and pubs in Moscow that are favourites among locals.
Beer Happens

Beer Happens is in the heart of Moscow and is famous for being not only a sports pub, but a gastropub as well. Take a look at the menu and you’ll be amazed. These guys seriously have one of the best menus for hungry sports fans, and it’s considered one of the best places to watch sporting events with its big-screen TV. If it’s a little crowded for your taste, there’s a shop inside the gastropub where you can buy any kind of beer with a special discount and take it with you.

John Donne

John Donne pub is probably the most centrally located and most popular sports pub in the city of Moscow, making it a very trendy spot indeed. Here they show any sport you desire. Be sure to book a table in advance because local guys and football fans have had their own tables here for years, and it’s almost impossible to find seats during big game nights. The pub sees lots of British and American visitors and the atmosphere is very friendly. The downstairs has multiple screens, including the biggest HD screen in the area and a dozen more screens around the bar. Don’t forget to try typical British beer snacks while you’re here!
