THE new Sporting Globe Bar & Grill in Belmont Forum will feature world-first software in the venue’s private booth screens.

BoothTV™ software allows diners to watch the news or sports and play games with the touch screen technology, developed by The Sporting Globe.

Chief executive James Sinclair said there were 10 private booths at the Belmont venue, which opened yesterday.

“No-one’s done it in Australia, the whole software is a global first,” he said.

“There’s not a seat in the venue where you can’t see a screen.”

The Sporting Globe features more than 40 large high definition screens and a seven-metre mega screen for live sporting events in the beer garden.

This is the third Sporting Globe venue in WA and 12th nationally.

The bar will have 20 beers on tap.

Mr Sinclair said he was confident the new Belmont venue would be popular with the community after witnessing the passion of Perth’s sports fanatics.

“The location and proximity to the new Optus Stadium, which I think has the best atmosphere of a sports ground in the nation and possibly the world, could not be better,” he said.

“We are eager to engage with sports supporters before and after games played at Optus Stadium as well as those race goers at Belmont and Ascot.”

“We’re looking at opening The Sporting Globe north of Perth, having three already in the south.”

The Sporting Globe Belmont has a capacity of 377 patrons.
