      Best Sports Bars in Las Palmas

      If you’re up in the bright lights of Las Palmas, here are the best bars to watch live sports.

      Paddy’s Anchor – The No1 Sports Bar in Las Palmas

      This is my favourite sports bar in Gran Canaria. Yes, I really did visit all six on this list, and when it comes to what I’m looking for from a sports pub, Paddy’s Anchor has got it. 

      Most importantly there are loads of TVs. There are screens in every corner of this sports bar, so you’ll always have a good view of the match. Because there are so many TVs, it means that they can show different sports at the same time, making the 3 o’clock Saturday kick-offs a dream for football lovers!

      The drinks menu is all good. Everything you want is on it and is well-priced. There’s a food menu too, but it’s just snacks like sandwiches and nachos. You get free nuts with your beer too.

      When the football stops this sports bar changes to a live music and karaoke bar. You can also play a bit of sport here too as there’s a pool table and darts board for punters to enjoy.

      Address: C/ Sagasta, 66, 35008 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

      Opening times: 12:00 – 02:00

      The Irish Rover – The best Guinness in town

      This sports bar in Gran Canaria is a cosy little Irish pub with three screens that show EPL, La Liga and SPL games. If the game you want to watch isn’t on when you arrive, just ask them and if they can, they will put it on for you. 

      My favourite thing about his pub is that it serves the best Guinness in town. Ok, I can’t do that for sure because trying to drink a Guinness in every bar in Gran Canaria in six days would be the craziest bar crawl ever. I can say that it sells the best Guinness out of all the sports bars in Gran Canaria on this list. Fact!

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

      Another bonus is that this sports bar stays open until 04:00 at weekends and 03:00 during the week.

      The Captain 13

      Last on the list of the best sports bars in Las Palmas is Gallery 13. This bar is more of a local sports bar, but they do still show UK sport too, it’s just that La Liga games usually take priority over anything else. But as they have a few screens and a big projector there’s usually a screen or two for us tourists to watch our leagues too.

      Along with a very extensive drinks menu, there’s also a good snack menu too. You can see it all here

      Address: C. Fernando Guanarteme, 63, 115, 65 km, 35010 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

      Opening times: 18:00 – 02:00

      With that many TVs, it’s no surprise that you can watch any match you want in this sports bar. It’s a Chic modern bar with a huge terrace overlooking the ocean. It has a great view too because it is on the 2nd floor, above a shopping centre.

      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.
