Best Sports Bar
Hverfisgata 40, 101 Reykjavík
As far as sports bars go, the panel all agreed that this bar was the perfect spot. You can watch the game with the lads, have a drink with the lads, and even brush up on your pool skills with the lads. “When I visit a sports bar, I want screens, I want a pool table. I want a sports bar to have a specific atmosphere, and this place delivers,” a panellist said. With their selection of various activities — think pool, foosball, darts and the like — Reykjavík Sportbar caters to sports enthusiasts and non-fans alike.
Snorrabraut 56, 105 Reykjavík
Starting out in Garðabær, Just Wingin’ It has branched out to Snorrabraut. Although technically a restaurant, the place is great for a main dish of beer with a side of wings. And sports? Well, they got that. “There are screens everywhere. At one point I was watching the NBA, NFL and the Premier League all at the same time,” said one panellist. “There was a crazy amount of energy.”
Austurstræti 8, 101 Reykjavík
The bar of the free, and the bar of the brave. Don’t let the giant statue of Uncle Sam scare you away — he’s just there to recruit you into day drinking. American Bar screens all manner of sports, offers a good selection of draft and bottled beer, and features Reykjavík partygoers’ favourite pastime, the Wheel of Fortune. With its overall atmosphere and focus on sports, American Bar deserves a mention.
