The Bench - Canggu

the bench canggu

This new sports bar in Canggu is a member of The Brett Hospitality Group. This twist on the American tradition was dreamt up by sports and food enthusiasts Mitch Doumanis, Joel Singleton, and Dominique Brett. As an effort to unite the remaining foreigners on the island during the Covid-19 outbreak, The Bench was first welcomed as a pop-up. However, the outdoor bar quickly established itself as the go-to location for all significant (and minor) sporting events in Canggu, and in the middle of 2021, it acquired a permanent home.

Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong no. 99, Canggu
Open daily from 12 pm to 5 am

Stadium Cafe and Sports Bar - Kuta

You’ll also spot guests watching in from the sidewalk with a beer in hand (or, you’re probably one of them). Fans of Aussie car racing can also enjoy The Bathurst 1000 fed live from the Mount Panorama Circuit in New South Wales, as well as the Formula 1 series, the rugby leagues, soccer, and of course the anticipated Melbourne Cup.
