British Pub Morris / Black Sheep / Hippo
Morris is a standard fixture on the bar circuit in Fukuoka and has been for many years. This longevity can be attributed to a number of factors: Friendly staff, great locations and, perhaps most importantly, consistency. Customers return to Morris because they know they’ll always be happy with what’s put in front of them, whether that’s a smoothly mixed cocktail, a fresh, chilled bottle of import beer or a patiently poured pint of Guinness. Each shop has four to five big screen TVs, so you won’t miss kick off!

Fire Ball Cafe
Fire Ball combines the ambiance of an American sports bar with a truly international worship of sport – any sport. With seven TVs and a big screen often displaying two or three different sports events, Fire Ball is often not as raucous as its American models and many customers can be seen with a drink and one of their sizeable, quality meals, catching up on their particular sporting passion. Of course on big game nights you’ll probably have to squeeze in a little, but the passion of local supporters will carry you along almost instantly. Sports mania touches almost every part of the menu, with cocktails like “Pele”, “Micheal Jordan” and “Maria Sharapowa”.
