Dallasites aren’t just passionate about their own sports teams, they’re passionate about sports in general. And other than catching the live action in person, there’s nothing more exciting than watching a sporting event with a bunch of like-minded fans–especially when it involves good beer, great food and plenty of high-definition TVs.
College football fans always hit Stan’s Blue Note when there’s a game on, not to mention it’s the official bar of the Florida Gators. But with cheap drafts, food specials and wall-to-wall TVs, it’s the ultimate neighborhood haunt for any sports geek, regardless of which team you’re rooting for.
Talking about wall-to-wall TVs, Christies Sports Bar & Deli has TVs lined up as far as the eyes can see.
If you're looking for more of an upscale sports bar vibe, the Owner’s Box in the downtown Omni Hotel will be your happy place. Here, you’ll find more than 70 high-definition TVs, plush seating areas and even private game-watching booths. The food and booze options aren’t too shabby either.
Huge sports bars are great, but for those who prefer a more low-keyed experience, pull up a seat at Cafe Gecko, where flat screens galore, solid food and more than enough beer to go around provides a festive experience for cheering on any sport.
And located steps from the American Airlines Center is Happiest Hour boasting big screen TVs, a rooftop terrace, sharable team eats and drinks, plus specials on Jack Daniels when the Dallas Stars hockey team plays at home.
