They are a relatively new introduction on the nightlife scene in the country. Sports Bars are getting to be increasingly popular. Football, cricket, Olympics, hockey and even indoor sports like snooker and billiards are drawing people to these bars to enjoy the sport over drinks with friends. Great alcohol, air of conviviality and raucous atmosphere define these bars. Here are the best of them from across the major cities who have been nominated for INCA Best Sports Bar category.

A pool table, that house in the hills vibe and cheesy nachos - what more could you want when watching a Wimbledon tennis match, or Champions League fixture. Well priced drinks round out the offerings.
