The Best Sports Bars In Fuengirola

If you’re looking for a quick and easy guide to the best sports pubs in Fuengirola you are in the right place. Let’s get to them.

Buster’s Sports Bar

Buster’s is hands down my favourite sports bar in Fuengirola. It has so many screens, meaning it can show every kind of live sport that you can think of, all at the same time. A brilliant thing for the 3 o’clock kick-offs on Saturdays. It is a sport lover’s paradise.

You can probably even watch Aussie Rules

If you want to watch something that isn’t on, just ask the staff and they’ll do their best to get it on one of the screens.   

Buster’s Sports Bar also has another accolade. It served me the best Guinness I had in Fuengirola, and I tried a lot of Guinness on my holiday. The cocktails all went down well with my gang too.

Not only does Buster’s show all the sport you could want from a sports pub in Fuengirola, but you can also play some sports too. There’s a decent pool table and a darts board for you to play on if you want.

If you’re looking for the best sports bar in Fuengirola to watch the Rugby Six Nations, this is my recommendation. 

You’ll find Buster’s in the centre of the town, just a stone’s throw from the beach. Here’s a link to the exact location on Google Maps.

Rocky O’Sullivans Nº1 Sports & Party Bar

Next up on my list of the best places to watch sport in Fuengirola is Rocky O’Sullivans. They call themselves the No.1 Sports and Party Bar, and I can’t argue with that, not when you add the party level they go to every night of the week.

We found ourselves in this sports bar most nights on our holiday. There’s one huge projector screen towards the back of the bar, and loads of smaller screens dotted around inside and out on the big terrace too. I do love watching a match while topping up my tan!

You can play a bit bit of snooker (on a full-size table) and pool inside, just don’t spill your drinks on the table. You’ll be straight out if you do that! 

This sports bar in Fuengirola is famous for its happy hour. You’ll be sinking cheap cocktails to get the party started. A party that ends at 04:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. It still stays open until 03:00 for the rest of the week.

Here’s a link to where you’ll find it.

Alley Cats

Taking third spot on my list of the best sports bars in Fuengirola is Alley Cats. This sports bar was refurbed in the summer of 2023 and is now one of the best sports bars in Fuengirola. 

It’s another bar that doesn’t look like much from the outside when it’s closed, but come match day there are loads of tables out on the street and what seems like even more TVs inside showing every kind of sport going! And you can see plenty of them from the tables outside, perfect for the smokers out there.

The walls are covered in sports memorabilia, including realistic copies of the Champions League and FA Cup trophies. As you’d expect from a decent sports bar there’s also a pool table for you to show off your skills when you’re not engrossed in the sport on TV.

If you struggle with local Spanish beer you’ll be happy too, as they have Guinness, Coors and Strongbow on tap. 

Here’s where you’ll find Alley Cats Sports Bar in Fuengirola.

Sports bars in Fuengirola – The best of the rest

They are my top three places to watch sport in Fuengirola. Just in case you can’t get a seat any any of these, here are a couple of others that are worth mentioning

The Old London

A good sports pub that only just missed on out my top three. Great atmosphere and plenty of screens showing different sports simultaneously. It probably has the best ‘traditional English’ menu in Fuengirola too. If you’re looking for more of a pub vibe, The Old London is a good bet.

Sunset Boulevard International Sports Bar

With a name like that, you’d expect to see it at the top of my list. My experience, though, and that of many others that I’ve seen online since getting home, wasn’t great. It’s more expensive than most sports bars in Fuengirola, and there aren’t many TVs considering its size. Who knows though, you might love it there.

Rooster’s Sports Bar

Last, and deservedly so on this list of sports bars in Fuengirola is Rooster’s.

There are a couple of big-screen TVs and the owners seem to just move them around to angle them depending on where people are sitting. They’ve really made the list because of their decent pizzas. Who doesn’t love devouring a pizza while sinking a pint and watching the game?

About the author – The Sketchy Traveller

I’m not really a stickman, but it seems that I like portraying myself as one.

I’m an English guy who’s been travelling since 2017. I was never good at taking photos, sketching just seems to work better for me, and in my opinion, why do you want to see other people’s 4K videos and pictures of the world? Surely it’s better to see it for yourself. You can get in touch through the contact page or Instagram.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy travelling.
