The tournament tips off this August 25 across three host countries – the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia with the championship happening on September 10. 

Golden tickets to home court games held throughout Luzon arenas are hard to come by with demand from sports fans at an all time high. Get to cheer for Gilas Pilipinas and watch the home team move up the brackets in lively lounges with access to a great deal of drinks and comfort food to choose from. 

Here are the best casual spots to watch the FIBA games streamed live from 4PM onwards during game days in the country’s premium lifestyle and entertainment destination: 

El Calle Food and Music Hall at 2F Newport Mall

At the end of a row of enticing restaurants is the El Calle Food and Music Hall – just El Calle among regulars – with a stage and a floor-to-ceiling mural that glows in the dark. Usual evenings in this popular hangout spot are filled with patrons singing along to the finest local acoustic acts.
