Football Team Bar Guide

The After Hours blog over at The Washingtonian just updated their list of bars where fans of different NFL teams meet. I didn’t know 18th Amendment was the place to see the Panthers or Pour House was the place to watch the Steelers. As a native Bostonian I wish I found this list earlier! I was wondering what would be a good bar to watch the Patriots season opener (and Tom Brady’s season closer.)

I ended up going over to Buffalo Billiards in Dupont Circle- which ended up being a great place to go. They had all the games up on the numerous screens across the bar and the crowds were manageable. I sure do enjoy watching my favorite team with others but I also enjoy being able to find a table relatively easy. However the service was terribly slow.

Chances are your favorite sports bar will carry the game you want to see- but it’s always fun to watch it with fans of your favorite team. And if you are a local Redskins fan? Check out The Junkies and watch the game wherever they are doing their weekly “Unauthorized Pregame Show”.

    Good call Patrick,

    It seems every Sunday we have a few Skins or Patriots fans show up at 51st state looking for their game-only to eventually figure out that "Oooh! NEW YORK Sports bar…" leaving them to turn around in shame. A list of where home team games are showing in such a diverse and transient town is a great idea.

    By the way when you throw in McFaddens and that little West End stretch looks like "Little Buffalo" on Sundays-which is a-ok by me 

    Thanks Frank,

    Sometimes I wonder if one is being brave when they are wondering into an opposing team’s bar- or just truly lost.

    I recall one loud and drunk Coloardo fan at Rhino Bar during the World Series last year… maybe not the best place to watch the game if the bar has a huge Boston Red Sox banner over it.
