Looking for the perfect venue to support your team to victory or drown you sorrows if they drop the ball, so to speak? Well you’ve come to the right place. Here’s our top 5 places to catch both the AFL & NRL Grand Finals in Newcastle this weekend.
AFL GRAN FINAL
Saturday, 30 September
Sydney Junction Hotel Beer Garden
If you’re in and around Hamilton and the weather is good, we can’t think of a better place to watch the arial pingpong AFL final than the SJs beer garden.
It’s one of the best rooms to watch sport in the local area and if you’re into a bit of a flutter, their TAB facilities are second to none.
Free bar snacks and drink specials are the order of the day for the AFL Grand Final. This place is know to pack out early. You’ve been warned.
The Grain Store
There’s a big screen and a hand selected line up of beers that will have even the fussiest drinker spoilt for choice.
South Leagues Club
And oldie but a goodie, and if it’s a hot one, this is the place to be. You can’t beat the bar prices either, and they do a mean scone. Trust us.
NRL GRAND FINAL
Sunday, 1 October
If it’s good enough for Mike then it’s alright by us! Plus you can chow down on one of the best pub meals going… Did someone say cheeseburger spring rolls.
Event Cinemas Kotara
Did someone say big screen? If you like your grand final on a big VMAX screen with a side of hotdogs, choc tops and popcorn, this is the ultimate way to see the GF. And don’t worry everyone… There’s a bar there!
The Crown & Anchor Hotel
They love their footy at The Crown & Anchor Hotel and they know how to throw a great party. If you’re looking for grand final vibes, this is the place to be.
A great atmosphere, delicious food and buckets of beer! PLUS they have extended trading hours until 12am.
You had us at brewhouse… Wrap your laughing gear around a craft beer and a Grand Final Burger (buttermilk southern fried chicken, slaw, pickle, cheese, Chicago peppers). The game will be televised LIVE ON THE BIG SCREEN projector.
If it's on in Newcastle, it's on Newcastle Live
