“Great bar for watching sporting events with a cold beer.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2015 via mobile

Have eaten and visited this bar regularly in the past. Service is always fast and the drinks are always cold.
Had the Aussie rump steak special a few weeks ago and it definitely satisfied my craving. Not huge but pan fried and cooked to medium perfectly as requested. Served with coleslaw but fries are extra but still if you need an Aussie real steak fix, this should do it!
Great spot to watch all sports and AFL season if that's what you're looking for.

“Great place to watch your favorite sports events!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2015

Whilst holidaying in Hoi An, it was essential to find a bar that was going to give us access to the Australia/NZ World CUp cricket final. Well we found it, along with great food and cold beer, and an excellent Canadian host, who we kept bumping into all around Vietnam! Highly reccommend for those occasions when you just need to be in a bar watching your favourite sport.

“Beer and football!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2015 via mobile

Cold beer, rapid service and the burger and chips was good, too. They have a lot of screens and English commentary. A good choice for sporting events.

“Cold draught beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2015 via mobile

The place to go to get your sport fix whilst in Hoi An. Live NRL and cricket as well as just about every other sport. Frosty tiger on tap and great pub food.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2015 via mobile

I hate leaving negative reviews on here but I felt the need to. My wife and I visited here last year and I left an excellent review. This is our second visit to Hoi An. We came one night and thought we would just have a relax and watch some sport (being a sports bar) we thought we would sit down and watch one of the several events on the different screens. All the events were being streamed through the internet and all froze whilst we were watching them. This was for at least 45 minutes before we left. We decided to give it another go a couple of nights later to watch the NRL rugby. All seemed to be going well as this was not freezing much. We were clearly watching it right in front of the screen when it was turned over to a different game. We thought we would just drink up and go rather than make a fuss. Do not advertise as a sports bar if you can not live up to simple expectations. Despite this, the staff and beer are good. Shame really.

Gordon N, Owner at Hoi An Sports Bar, responded to this review, 13 March 2015
Thank you for taking the time to review my bar. I'm very sorry that you had a negative experience. We were fully aware that there was an issue with our internet provide and have switched to a new provide only in the past couple of day. Our bar has 3 fiber connections and subscribes to many online sports sites hoping to cover as many events as possible. AFL, NRL, Fox Sports, Sententa, NHL, NFL, Sky Sports ect. I'm also sure that my staff would not intentionally change a program that you were watching and would have gladly changed it back if you would have asked. We take pride in our ability to broadcast the largest selection of sports in Hoian however if our internet providers let us down it is out of our control. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holidays in Vietnam.
