The Rugby World Cup is on, and there aren’t many places one can go to watch it in the city, as the interest in rugby is very limited in Austria. The Australian pubs sometimes show rugby, and Shebeen, but if you want to be certain, Flanagans shows most games whether it be Rugby Championship, Super Rugby, Six Nations or just a test game.
Nowadays it’s made all pretty for the World Cup, and there was nothing wrong with the atmosphere when we watched England go out of the tournament yesterday. Poor England. At least co-host Wales is still in it!
Ok, it’s not entirely smoke free as uou can smoke downstairs, but the main room is now a non smoking section. I’m so stoked! I’m also stoked to see that it’s still very well visited, it was pretty full when we were there tonight. It’s the best thing that’s happened in my pub world this year. So, if you want a killer awesome atmosphere, nice staff and good Irish pubiness, go to Golden Harp in the third district.
Rugby at Flanagan’s Irish Pub! ❤
The games for the world cup are being shown all over town. I don’t think there is a single pub which doesn’t have a tv going. If you’re after a bigger venue though, Flex at Schottenring is a good alternative. You can watch the sun go down on the canal, and then shortly afterwards at 9pm a game will start.
This is a pub in the 3rd district that I’ve been wanting to go to for AGES. It looks quite inconspicuous, but they have a really kickass selection of beers on tap and bottled, just check out their drinks menu. Some day soon I WILL CHECK IT OUT!!!
Aaaah, it’s wednesday. The Harp is like a blonde bimbo to us. It looks great, but has no personality. And yet, you keep coming back again and again because it’s so easy….
