Memphians love their sporting events, especially those revolving around SEC football, Hotty Toddy, Memphis Tigers basketball (well, maybe love is not the right word this season), and the NBA's Grizzlies, who are tearing it up n the court right now.
The best sports bars in Memphis offer plenty of friendly company on game day - and you might be surprised that English Premier League football, also known as soccer, gets a lot of love in the Bluff City. Celtic Crossing and Brass Door - both very authentic Irish pubs with all the traditional Irish fare that goes along with it - both offer EPL viewing in addition to broadcasts of their American counterparts. TJ Mulligan's is a local chain where sports and live music manage to work together, and gives the feel of a really authentic neighborhood bar, especially in the Pinch - the downtown neighborhood location that we chose as our favorite of three options. Next Door is our favorite spot for a more laid-back game watching, plus serves up the best non-pub grub on the entire list. We love the vibe at Brookhaven - plus they indulge we Big 10 fans regularly - and even have big screens on the patio, which almost makes you feel like it's fall in East Lansing.
