Where to watch this years Grand Final in Perth
The AFL Grand Final is going to look a little different this year - not only is it being held in Queensland, but it also has a much later bounce-down of 7.30pm. And while we West Aussies are a bit gutted that we didn’t get to host the big dance here in Perth, we think a grand final under lights is a greater excuse to get the gang together and make a night of it. Sure, your living room is comfortable, but we bet it doesn’t have the ambience of these lively spots. So here are some of the best places to watch the grand final in Perth and Northbridge.
Located within the Brass Monkey Hotel, Patriots Sports Bar is an epic sports-watching venue. It boasts 22 screens, three big screens and two private screening booths to catch all of the grand final action, plus a menu of pub classics that are perfect for game day like pizzas, parmi and steak sandwiches. And if you want to get up and stretch the legs at half time, they’ve got pool tables and arcade games so you can keep that competitive spirit high.
