Touted as the fight of the century in 2015, the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao (Pacman) is here this Sunday May 3rd 2015 at 11am Singapore time. Below are the list of places you can head out to if you intend to watch it
With just a few days left before the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fight in Las Vegas, it’s time you book a spot at your favourite sports bar to watch a live screening in Singapore. Unlike your early morning soccer matches, the richest boxing match in history airs early — nine in the morning (Singapore time) on May 3, though the actual game is not expected to begin until 11am.
It’s a Sunday, so most sports bar won’t be starting operations until past lunch, but the ones below have confirmed with Coconuts Singapore that they’ll be open and ready to take your brunch order — do a one-two punch and throw in a bucket of beer, why don’t you — whether you’re Team Pacquiao or Team Mayweather.
We’ve always loved the spacious digs of TAB so this place comes highly recommended. Watch the match on a 6×11 feet screen and drink the morning away with free flow beer, prosecco and house pours (from 10:30am) and three main course items to choose from. Hot ring girls from Juggernaut Fight Club and Tiger Beer brand ambassadors help ease the pain if your player loses. VIP sofas available. #02-29 Orchard Hotel, 442 Orchard Rd. ; [email protected]. $89 pre-booking, $99 at the door. Purchase tickets here or email [email protected] for group discounts.
This sounds like a party we can’t refuse — ring girls, sexy boxers and a DJ to put everyone in the mood pre- and post-match. Tickets are unfortunately sold out online — those who want to try their luck can make reservations through phone bookings. The $300 package gets you 10 tickets, each with a free drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic), plus an additional two free tickets that don’t come with drinks.

McGettigan’s Clarke Quay
Singapore’s newest Irish bar is where The Script hung out right before their April concert here, and if it’s good enough for our Dublin mates, then it’s good enough for you boxing fans. There’s 15 screens so no need to jostle, with a seating capacity of 100, including outside and upstairs. No reservations, but be there by 9am if you want to chope the good seats. Blk A Clarke Quay #01-01; [email protected].
The Penny Black
Boat Quay’s iconic Victorian pub starts serving breakfast items like Eggs Benedict, English Breakfast and Bacon Butty at 8am so that leaves you plently of time to chomp away like Pacman before watching the match between, uhm, Pacman and Mayweather. 26/27 Boat Quay; .
Brewerkz Riverside Point
The microbrewery throws its doors open early for what it’s dubbed as ‘the fight of the century’. While breakfast will most definitely be served, we recommend the just-as-filling jug of Golden Ale or Indian Pale Ale. 301 Merchant Rd, Riverside Point; .
The city’s only cabaret-style club drops its Mandopop act for the morning as opens up its main hall (capacity: 600) and whips up a buffet spread of Filipino, American and Singaporean breakfast dishes. Pre-booking fee of $88 nett includes munchies and free-flow of housepours and beers from 10am till noon. Organizer Haywire Handymen promises to replicate a live boxing experience in Vegas and while there won’t be any fisticuffs, there’s VIP tables with private seating, a VIP bar and a VIP smoking lounge. Three projectors will be mounted left, right and center of stage just in case the eight TV sets are not enough. Sounds like a plan! Blk 3B Clarke Quay; or . $88 pre-booking, $98 at the door (if you’re lucky).
This Australian restaurant doesn’t need a sports match to fill up its space. The Robertson Quay outlet is massive and a popular Sunday brunch spot, and tables have been booked for May 3. The two-storey Boat Quay branch is considerably smaller, but spots are still up for grabs as of this writing. There’s six TV screens on the ground floor and three more upstairs. 52 Circular Road Boat Quay; .
Fern & Kiwi
The bar alone of this Clarke Quay nightspot can accommodate 200 people and the second floor is ready anytime if there’s a big-enough crowd in the house. Downstairs, there are six TV screens on stage. Blk 3C Clarke Quay #01-02/03; .
Bungy Bar[Bungy Bar just emailed, they’re not screening it after all. Boo! –Coconuts]
There’s nothing like being in the middle of a packed crowd while watching a heated match, and that’s exactly what you’ll be getting at this 12-seater bar overlooking Clarke Quay’s most popular attraction (the reverge bungy ride). We’re not sure about the food but it’s going to be happy hour from opening till 9pm including beers and cider ($10-$13), wines ($13) and house-pour spirits ($10/shot). Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Blk 3E Clarke Quay #01-07; +65 6338 5707.
Muddy Murphy’s Irish Pub
The city’s oldest Irish bar was designed and built to scale in Dublin before being imported to its original location at Orchard Hotel’s basement. The new address on Orchard Boulevard still has decors from the old spot, but more importantly for this event, two open-air courtyards, two bars and five large screens and a projector. Seats up to 180. They’ll start serving drinks at 9am but the kitchen doesn’t open till 10:30am (good luck with that!). Look out for their popular Sunday Roast and stick around for the live band in the afternoon. 111 Somerset Rd, #01-02 TripleOne Somerset,
