The 50/50 Club Sports Bar & Restaurant

One of the largest sports bars in Hiroshima

"The 50/50 Club Sports Bar & Restaurant "is one of the largest sports bars in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is a very popular sports bar with a great selection of food and drinks. You can enjoy everything from the Olympic season, WBC, international soccer, professional baseball, as well as rugby, basketball, tennis, and more.
 The spacious one-floor restaurant has a very large 150-inch screen and six TV monitors. The restaurant is a great place for live viewing every day.

If you come to the store on the day of the game wearing your uniform, you may be pleasantly surprised by the service. The restaurant is open until 2:00 on weekdays and until 4:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, so there is no problem to get excited even if there is a time difference, such as for overseas soccer games. Since it is open until late at night, it is also suitable for after-parties and tertiary parties.

Seating is available for groups, including tables and sofas, and there is also counter seating, so you can relax and watch the game by yourself. There is also a full lineup of darts, air field hockey, and TV games for you to enjoy with your friends. This restaurant can also be rented out, so if you are looking for a place, you can ask about it.

Full menu

"The 50/50 Club Sports Bar & Restaurant "is more than just a sports bar! They have a very extensive food menu and drinks.

We especially recommend the Japanese beef hamburger. There is nothing like a hamburger to bite into while watching a hot game! The juicy patty will fill you up.

We also recommend the course menu, which features a total of 11 dishes, including salad, roast beef, steak, and pizza. You can also enjoy fried chicken from Hiroshima Prefecture and fried oysters. The course also includes dessert at the end of the course and is a very good value at 5,500 yen with 3 hours of all-you-can-drink.

Carp Bird

Carp fans' favorite izakaya

This izakaya is very popular among Carp fans, with 14 locations in the prefecture and one in Hawaii. On game days, you can watch the live broadcast from any seat, and the time spent watching the game while enjoying delicious yakitori and beer is bliss.
There is counter seating as well as table seating. There are also many single people here, so you don't have to worry. You will naturally become friends with your neighbors as you watch the games.
Each seat is assigned a player's name, and there will be a surprise for those seated at the player who hit a home run during the actual event.

Lots of valuable goods!

The store is decorated with many valuable goods such as players' autographs, old uniforms, and posters only available at the stadium. This is evidence of the connection between the players, alumni, and deep-rooted Carp fans from long ago. Looking at the nostalgic goods, you will be filled with memories related to the Carp.

Menus named after players

The yakitori menu is named after players! The players are named before the season starts, taking into account their characteristics and what to expect this year. The drink menu also has words used in baseball such as slider and fork, making it fun at the time of ordering.

Watching the game while eating yakitori

We still recommend the yakitori. The chicken is softly grilled over charcoal in Akitakada City, Hiroshima Prefecture. The tender meat is juicy and full of flavor. It is perfectly matched with our secret sauce, making it a perfect accompaniment to alcoholic beverages.

Hiroshima specialties such as Hiroshima tsukemen noodles and small sardine tempura are also available, making it a great place to go with friends from outside the prefecture.
Each restaurant has a different menu, so it is worthwhile to visit all of them.

Kure Menya Carp Road Branch

Stop by on game day! The store is located on Carp Road!

This tsukemen restaurant is located on the road from Hiroshima Station to Mazda Stadium. Because it is located so close to the stadium, it is especially crowded with baseball fans on game days. It is open long hours, making it a convenient place to have lunch before a game or as an izakaya (Japanese-style pub) after the game.

Due to its location near the Mazda Stadium, the store is decorated with many Carp uniforms and autographs. Stopping by before a game is a very uplifting experience.
