Six of our favourite places to watch the Six Nations 2018
This weekend, Wales face Joe Schmidt’s Irish squad in a mouth-watering ‘Celtic clash’ that promises to be an exciting occasion for both sets of fans. With a rampant Irish team that is on course for the Grand Slam and a Welsh team that still has a chance of winning the championship, both teams will be bringing their A-game to Cardiff.
As avid Rugby fans, we’ve explored plenty of the Capital’s best venues to watch a Six Nations match, so let us dispense a little local knowledge and show you where you can find the best seats outside of the Principality Stadium.
Here are six of the best places to watch the Six Nations 2018 in Cardiff:
Depot is one of Cardiff’s most original venue, and one of our favourite places to watch the game. With huge screens, a combination of Welsh Craft Beers and delicious Street Food, this super cool warehouse is definitely up there with one of the best atmospheres outside of the stadium.

Described as Cardiff’s Pub Theatre, Porter’s holds ‘The Other Room’, an intimate theatre that will be showing the Six Nations. With just 44 seats, we love catching the game at Porter’s as it boasts an intensity which no other venue in Cardiff offers.

The Philharmonic is certainly ‘‘Open for Rugby’. Enjoy only the very best draught, cask & craft ales, their carefully selected wines and their extraordinary Gin collection whilst catching the game on the big screen.

Located in the Brewery Quarter and only a stone’s throw away from the Principality Stadium, the Yard offers the perfect front row seat to watch the Six Nations Rugby.
Here you can indulge in some delicious pub grub and drink some proper Welsh beer throughout the match.

Eleven’s Bar & Grill
Owned by Brains Brewery and Welsh legend Gareth Bale, Eleven’s Bar & Grill is a great place to watch the rugby in Cardiff. Dubbed as a ‘premium sports bar and restaurant in the heart of Cardiff’, Eleven’s Bar offers a number of traditional ales, Bale’s own Ale, an extensive wine list, cocktails and a variety of grill-styled grub perfect for match day.

The Old Arcade
The Old Arcade has long been considered the place for Welsh supporters. Expect ‘Delilah’s’ outbursts, vintage Rugby memorabilia, cheap lager and a funny smell from the market, but if you’re looking for the authentic Welsh experience during the Six Nations – this is definitely it!
