'Sports Bar'

Post by tb51 » Thu Feb 11, 2016 8:34 am

I've read that the Sports Bar, opposite London Bar has changed name. Anyone know if it still shows live sports or is it a music bar now?

Thanks

There are many bars with multiple screens and finding the one you want to watch can be a little work. Try the 2 Irish bars Murphys and Father Ted's

Hua Hin Bar Soi 80. Two flat screens and a projector. Seems there is always a game on there.

In many thai-owned operated bars they will put the requested game on the TV but NOT the commentary--if you ask--Sorry, customer like music. Meaning the staff like the music. That is why I suggested the two Irish, farang managed bars.

Surely it's better without the commentary? I much prefer just the crowd noise.Here in West London there are a number of pubs with 'dodgy' satellite set ups that have CTH Stadium channels rather than Sky or BT.People ask for the commentary so the landlord puts it on and it is Thai or Vietnamese.I ll be back in Hua Hin in late March for the CTH channels!

CTH here you have a choice on your remote to select Thai or UK and most bars use UK as their customers are mostly Western.
