Barclay’s Sports Bar in Bishkek

Published: December 10, 2016

Barclay’s Pub
52 Baatik Baatyr Street
Entrees around $8-10

Barclays is a very nice sports bar located just a block away from the London School. This is definitely one of my favorite places to hang out with friends because the atmosphere is lively with a wide array of sports being shown. I’ve been able to watch soccer matches, jiu-jitsu competitions, and UFC in Barclay’s. The food is pretty good, but not amazing and it is fairly expensive – averaging around $8-10. I enjoy the Oxford Burger which consists of multiple burger sliders and fries. They have a wide variety of beer, but the most cost effective is the local variety which is available in any restaurant in Bishkek. Overall, I’d recommend Barclays to students at the London school who enjoy sports bars because Barclays is exactly that.
