The best sports bars in Los Angeles to watch your favorite players throw the old pigskin around… but watch out, least you step into a rival team’s drinking den!


Sonny McLean’s

This traditional Irish pub in the heart of Santa Monica is a New England Patriots bar through and through. Here you’ll find an extensive whiskey list, with a full range of imported and domestic beers (including 40 on tap), wine and liquors. Watch Tom Brady from one of 23 HDTV’s with virtually every major satellite/cable package available. Balling. Literally.



Given that Five0Four Hollywood was built to mimic the best dive bars in New Orleans complete with soulful Southern eats (courtesy of Peaches Smokehouse) and a progressive cocktail program providing new takes on old recipes, it’s no wonder you’ll find the New Orleans Saints fans holing up here.

The Backstage

With its endless karaoke, libations list and prime TV, The Backstage is a great spot to watch Sunday football. But does it live up to its boast as the best dive bar in the world? Well, you decide. Seattle Seahawks fans have overrun the Arizona Cardinals base that used to come here, just in case there’s any Cardinals fans looking for their brethren.


San Francisco Saloon

What’s in a name, you might ask? This one’s a no-brainer. Come for the 49ers, stay for the burgers and beer.

Barney’s Beanery

Dallas Cowboys fans come to this college-appropriate hangout (where even older folks won’t feel their age after a few buckets of beers.

Q’s Billiard Club

New York Jets fans have a pretty sweet spot to watch their game, including a plethora of TV’s, 3 outdoor patios, a DJ and, yes, even post-game trivia (for those actually sober enough to answer).
