Hi all,

Recently arrived in Moscow with my family after nine years in Auckland, NZ (originally from the UK) and just trying to suss out if anyone knows of a good bar/club to watch the RWC matches over here?

We have cable in our apartment but Eurosport doesnít seem to be advertising it will show any of it.

Would really appreciate any tips/help for venues and fellow supporters to enjoy the games with.

Cheers Jan.

If you have broadband, you can try diwana.org :: Login (http://www.diwana.org) torrent tracker.
It is specialised in aussie stuff, they probably will encode RWC games.

Philandjan,

I'd go along with Frank and say that the best place to watch the Rugby World Cup will be Sportland, as you are guaranteed that they will show all of the games.

I don't know what Clean's problem is with running a tab there, as I've never had a problem with my bill there. Maybe Clean drank more beers than he thought he had done :).

The deal with Sportland is that you pay an entrance fee and they give you casino-type chips to the value of the entrance fee. You can spend them on beers / food or whatever there. It's a good system and was introduced to stop people coming in and simply not spending any money there whatsoever. The system works fine.

Another alternative you could try is Silvers Irish Bar on Nikitskiy Pereulok (off Tverskaya - if you're coming down Tverskaya from Pushkinskaya, it's the street on the right just before the new Ritz Carlton Hotel). Silvers is pretty much the local drinking hole for the expat / Russian Rugby team in Moscow - The Moscow Dragons. Quite a few people don't like Silvers for whatever reason, but the fact is that you will always be made feel welcome in Silvers and always end up chatting to someone at the bar.

Other possible venues are - Bleachers - if it's still open is rubbish. Jigsaw - overrated on here - the Boar House - absolute rubbish and I guess Hemingways - never been, so have no idea.

If you have ever had a problem with your bill after running a tab in Sportland let me know straight away and I'll sort it, I do not want a rep like Bleachers and All Stars.

seriously mail me
