Where to Watch Football in Minsk?
In which Minsk bars you will definitely find football?
Three Belarusian beer brands arranged their fan zones for the World Cup. Krynica-Arena is located on Praspiekt Pieramožcaŭ, next to the Sports Palace. Alivaria is now in charge at Velokafe situated a little farther from the center, in the Victory Park (at the crossing of Praspiekt Mašerava and the Svislač river embankment). Also you will find a terrace by the brand Bobrov right in the heart of Minsk, on Kastryčnickaja Plošča. Perhaps, fan zones are the cheapest and the most sincere way to grab a few beers watching football. If you are a snob, here are 4 more options below.
vulica Zybickaja, 6
The most football bar in Minsk on the main party street of the city. Except for obvious beer, the menu offers fiery home-made tinctures. Just do not start drinking them in the first half – you probably wouldn’t remember how the game ended. Pay attention to their own version of The Last Supper, it’s a real attraction of the bar.
vulica Kisialova, 20
It is one of the best pubs in Minsk located in the picturesque district of Asmaloŭka. The owner of the bar is a football fan, who’s made sure that games can be watched on large screens. Price range is above average.
Plošča Svabody, 2
Gambrinus is a beer restaurant in the city center, quite popular with tourists and locals without imagination, so a table should be booked in advance. There are regular football broadcasts, though the screens are visible not from each table.
vulica Hikaly, 5
Another time-tested pub near Plošča Jakuba Kolasa. It’s classical, Irish, noisy, and spacious. There is a kicker for those who want not only to watch, but also play.
