Early Bird Deals Are Over, So Head Here For A Cheaper World Cup Experience
We’re just four days from the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
For the full World Cup experience, avoid staying home and watching the most beautiful game alone.
Instead, call a couple of buddies to these bars, grab a pint and prepare to Ole, Ole, Ole in unison.
1. CÉ LA VI
View the 21st edition of the most watched sporting tournament in the world in the luxurious comfort of Marina Bay Sands’ CÉ LA VI.
Every one of the 64 matches can be viewed in full high-definition glory on a 65-inch television at the outdoor members’ area. All you have to do is fork out an entry fee of $20. This price rises to $28 on Wednesdays (guys only), Fridays and Saturdays. To sweeten the deal, the prices are inclusive of one premium pour.

If you’re so inclined, there’s a standing invitation to CÉ LA VI’s World Cup Party. Rep your favourite team’s jersey to receive free entry and enjoy dishes from the late-night casual dining menu, which has extended hours throughout the World Cup.
2. KPO Café Bar
Located right where your office probably is, KPO Café Bar is perfect for anyone looking for a post-workday chill sesh.
Cool down with a pint of Carlsberg Smooth Draft ($60/6 bottles) while chowing down on hokkien mee or other nibbles.
If beer isn’t your fancy, there’s always a twin deal for The Macallan 12yrs Double Cask at $400, or for 3 bottles of Chivas 18yrs at $550.
All matches before midnight will be screened at KPO, which will be specially open on Sunday, 15 July for the Finals.
As is tradition, England will probably lose a match to this tournament’s version of Iceland. Catch the action at Propeller, a rooftop bar located at Bay Hotel Singapore.
Starting 14 June, the operating hours for the bar will be extended to 4am on Fridays and Saturdays.
Paired with longer opening hours are bigger and better drink promos.

While live broadcasts, ice cold beers and hearty grub are standard fare for every bar trying to draw in patrons during World Cup season, Harry’s goes the extra mile and introduces flat screen televisions and projector screens at every one of their outlets islandwide.

What better way to cheer on Die Mannschaft or the Seleção by watching a game (or 64) at Brotzeit?
At the Raffles City and Westgate outlets, enjoy watching the action unfold before eyes while sharing giant platters of finger food with your buddies.

4 days to go…

Of course, the door is always open for England to clinch a long-awaited second Jules Rimet Trophy.
We can’t wait for the action to begin.
