If you think it would be hard to narrow down the best sports bars in the United States, you would be correct! There are literally hundreds of incredible bars across the country. Some sports bars, though, have gone the extra mile to create something special for their patrons. We’ve selected some of the highest-rated and most unique U.S. sports bars and listed them for you below! Have you been to any yet?
Truck Yard, Texas
Dallas is a great place to be if you love trucks, sports, and beer. This bar has it all! Get a beer at the bar, a meal at the food trucks, and head to a boot in a pick-up truck bed or visit the treehouse bar. You can even take a turn on the tire swing! Truck Yard hosts some fun events, too, from ESPN live broadcasts to the annual Paper Football Tournament.
Bobby V’s Restaurant & Sports Bar: Connecticut
Windsor Locks is home to this eclectic sports bar. If you love sports—any sports—than you’re sure to like this place! The bar boasts over 80 TVs that show everything from horse races to football and more. If you’re here for the Super Bowl or the World Series, then you will enjoy watching on the 17-foot-wide LED screen! If you need a break from viewing, check out the indoor golf simulator.
Tag Sports Bar, Nevada
Las Vegas does everything to the beat of its own drum. This sports bar is no exception! Hang out here for a chance to try one of the hundreds of available beers, try a tasting, or watch sports from around the world. Love rugby and polo? This is one of the few sports bars where you can actually watch both on a regular basis!
ESPN Zone, California
Everything is cooler in Disneyland. Head to Downtown Disney, and you’ll find this awesome sports bar with features up to the always-high Disney standards! You can sit in the stadium seating, or opt to lounge in an easy chair, just like you would at home. Of course, the screens are much bigger than the ones at home, and there are a lot more of them!
Nick’s English Hut, Indiana
If you ever find yourself in Bloomington, Indiana, head to Nick’s English Hut. While this sounds like something out of a nursery rhyme, it’s anything but cliché. This bar has been going strong since 1927, and it is a favorite of college grads and old timers alike! Even Barack Obama has enjoyed the atmosphere here. However, those who cheer for Indiana teams love it best. Don’t miss it!
Houndstooth Pub, New York
New York City has a lot of great sports bars, but this is one of the best. If the name sounds a bit British, that’s because it is. The pub is co-owned by two members of Snow Patrol, a British band. Of course, you can expect traditional British pub food here (with a healthy modern twist), but you’ll also get big TVs, two floors, and three different bars. This is definitely a venue designed to impress!
Lagasse’s Stadium, Nevada
Located at The Palazzo resort and covering 24,000 square feet, this Las Vegas bar has a lot of room for awesomeness! Fortunately, the bar does a great job of filling up the space with a whole lot of fun for sports fans. There are over 100 televisions, stadium-style seating, and couches for lounging with friends. It’s also rated as the top sports book location. Sip your favorite beer, but don’t forget about the food! This is your chance to sample celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse’s version of stadium food.
Quality Athletics, Washington
Seattle does everything a little differently, and goodness knows it has an advantage where beverages – coffee, beer and otherwise – are involved! Local craft beers are featured along with signature cocktails. However, this bar isn’t all about the drinks. It’s also about the food, which is excellent. A special Seahawks Brunch is available only on home game days. Hang out inside to watch the game, or gather around the fire pits. Either way, you are sure to have a great time!
This is THE classic American sports bar. Located next to the iconic Wrigley Field, this bar goes above and beyond expectations. It has a batting cage, a game room, and incredible Chicago deep-dish pizzas. Sluggers is an essential part of the Chicago sports experience.
Tony C’s Sports Bar and Grill, Massachusetts
Chicago doesn’t have all the perks. Boston fans love Tony C’s, a sports bar next to their beloved Fenway Park! The spacious interior has over 30 TVs, some of which are simply massive. Red Sox fans have to visit this sports bar at least once in their lives.
Cask’n Flagon, Massachusetts
It wouldn’t be right to mention Tony C’s without also giving a shout-out to Cask’n Flagon. This sports bar is right across the street from Fenway Park. While it doesn’t have more than the typical number of televisions, it does have some rare and fascinating photographs from baseball history, making it a great place for old-timers and history buffs.
Atlanta’s favorite sports bar has all the usual sports bar stuff, like the TVs and pub food, but it also boasts some extras that make it cooler than your average bar. For one thing, the menu is expansive, so if you’re not into fried food with your beer, you can still find something you like. Even better, the radio station 680 The Fan broadcasts live from here, and they even have their own special booth! Now, that is cool.
If you are a sports and beer lover, you can’t miss out on these awesome U.S. sports bars! Watching the game is even better when you do it with other fans and friends. Did we miss your favorite sports bar? Let us know about it in the comments!
