Sports, wings, and beer are a better threesome than the Stooges, the Musketeers, and the Kardashian sisters combined. And those three key elements are what Sports Grill, a well-worn bar tucked away in a South Miami strip mall, does best. When the Heat plays, the crowd lights up like a South Beach sunrise. Craft beers are aplenty, and good thing,...
906 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd.
Nestled between the Calder Race track and a strip mall sits the coolest sports bar you've probably never heard of. Upper Deck is the place to get your sports, food, and booze groove on. The restaurant features more than 50 flat-screen televisions and three huge projection screens showing all manner of sports events, games, and matches. Upper Dec...
Funny thing about sports bars: As easy as they seem to put together (beers + TVs + buffalo wings), they are often the hardest to actually get right. The culinary landscape has exploded in recent years, yet through it all, the lowly sports bar has continued to moulder away in epicurean no-man's land. It's that combination of easy-to-do, nigh-impo...
The easy line on Humperdink's is about size: The place serves 100-ounce beer towers and features TV screens larger than 100 inches. Those are strong qualities in a sports bar, true, but it's actually the attention to littler things that appeals most about the chain, which started on Greenville Avenue in 1976 and now has four locations in the are...
Multiple screens tuned to all the games you don't want to miss? Check. Pool tables for if you want to "exercise" while watching said games? Check. Killer beer selection at great prices? Affirmative. Friendly staff? That'd be a yes. Wings, fried pickles, burgers and quesadillas? You bet your bippy. Really, there's no shortage of sports bars in Ho...
You get more than peanuts and pretzels here for bar food; My Place has a full menu ranging from burgers to steak and lobster, all with large portions and served by hot waitresses. There are TVs everywhere, so no need to argue with your fellow patrons over which MMA match will replace which ESPN channel. And if you choose to come here, you can al...
So many sports bars in Boston these days feel like impersonal warehouses, strewn, as they are, with a bajillion giant TVs over a zillion square feet. Parlor is the rare gathering place that feels cozy and intimate. Crucially, the bartenders are adept at knowing when to turn up the volume on the commentators and when to flip it to music (a major ...
What other bar gives out Phillies rally towels on Opening Day? This South Philly fan favorite and its massive beer list inspires much love and loyalty. Even when the Phils do not.
There's something to be said for a chain of bars that's consistently packed week in and week out. With drinks the size of punch bowls, heaping portions of barbecue, and enough televisions to put P.C. Richards on notice, these frat-friendly stomping grounds bring out the sports fanatic in all of us. Brother Jimmy's friendly staff break out jersey...
