Enjoy Beer and Ball at the Space Coast's Top 10 Sports Bars

If you're traveling through the Space Coast, Florida, during the "big game," no need to worry. This stretch of Central Florida has plenty of great places to watch sports. 

Sports bars on the Space Coast take game-watching to the next level. Our favorites feature just about any premium sports channel you can dream of on high-def TVs. But not just a handful of screens. One of our top sports bars in Melbourne, Off the Traxx, boasts more than 40 different screens, including one mega screen that you can see from just about anywhere in the bar. This mega sports bar offers more than 350 seats and yummy pizza to complement its drink specials. Or Time Out Sports Bar features 30 different TVs and some of the best happy hours on the Space Coast, including dollar drinks. 

Indeed, good drink deals are an important characteristic of a good sports bar. Look for buckets of beer, pitcher specials or other unique options, like the Hurricane at the Sand Bar Sports Grill and Bar or loaded bloody Marys at Time Out, which you can decorate with everything from waffles to shrimp. 

Wash it all down with better-than-pub-fare, like the chicken wings at Coasters or build your own burger and get just what you want.
