Where to Grab Drinks and Catch the Big Game



Even in South Florida, every sports enthusiast knows there are days when watching the game is way more important than soaking up rays. Thankfully, there are several prime spots to catch the big event in the Palm Beach/West Palm Beach area. Everyone knows the best sports bars have lots of HD TVs- with the sound of the game on rather than music blaring - and ice cold beer, but the following list of places all offer a little something special on top.

The Grease Burger Bar on Clematis, for example, is the perfect place to catch the game and then stick around to make it a night on the town. The burger menu here is extensive and very creative. Favorites are the “Brother From Another Mother” with meatloaf and barbecue sauce and the “Grease Beast” that’s piled high with bacon and onion rings. The whiskey and beer menus are just as tempting, and the crowd here is always a fun one.

Sometimes, watching the game is a family event. If so, Duffy’s and Bru’s Room are worth checking out. Both restaurants offer family-friendly environments with kid menus and views of several TVs without having to sit at the bar.  No matter the sporting event, this list should make picking the venue a home run.

The Sports Page Bar & Grill is a no nonsense place to watch the big game, or several games, near the Northwood neighborhood of West Palm Beach. With over 50 TVs, not including the individual ones at each booth, getting control of the remote has never been easier. While the Sports Page Bar & Grill has a lot of the typical bar fare favorites, it's the beer that really set it apart. Using a patented Chill-Rite Beer System, the beer is guaranteed to come out of the tap at 32 degrees. If that doesn't cool you down on a hot Florida day, than nothing will. Trivia Tuesdays are also a hit here with 2-for-1 drink specials while you show off your smarts.

Recommended for Sports Bars because: The Sports Page Bar & Grill has beer at 32 degrees and more televisions that a person could possibly watch at once.
