Time Out Tavern Sports Bar

Copy Link

For those seeking a nice cool, dark, divey place to watch the game in peace, Time Out Tavern is the spot. It has a great beer and booze selection and while it doesn’t really serve food, patrons are allowed to order take out or bring food in with them.

Goodbye Horses

This SMU-adjacent bar sports a handful of giant TVs and good vibes. Get a buck of beer, smash burgers, fried pickles, and wings and call it a game day.

There’s nothing fancy in this divey sports bar by SMU, other than all those twinkle lights. For an unpretentious watch spot with burgers, beers, foosball, and a rowdy crowd, head this way.

Christies

With 69 TVs lining every wall across the two-story space, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Both are better with classic bar food like wings, burgers, and nachos, or the surprisingly good charcuterie board, stocked meats and cheeses, pickled vegetables, grain mustard, and preserves.

The Pour House

Copy Link

Oak Cliff’s neighborhood sports bar has games on all its 26 TVs, so diners can free to concentrate on the Buffalo chicken sandwich and ice-cold beer.

Quarter Bar

Copy Link

The McKinney Avenue hangout is great for groups who want to get together for a beer, but it also has a nice wine and cocktail list, if that’s the game day go-to pick.

Bryan Street Tavern

Copy Link

This Old East Dallas spot is more of a cozy vibe with better food than the average sports bar. One could actually have a salad, hummus — or just go for wings and pizza, it does that too. It also boasts 22 craft beers on tap, a big old patio, and shuffleboard.

Happiest Hour

Copy Link

Enjoy watching sports on the largest patio bar and lounge in the city with 30 beers on tap. And you’ve gotta get one of the ferris wheel baskets of wings to go with those buckets of beer.

Hero by HG

Copy Link

The 24,000-square-foot space has TVs everywhere you look, so you won’t miss a single play, and six bars are on the premises, so you’re never far from a drink. Grab a draft beer and the Remedy Burger, then head toward the back of the bar and park yourself in front of the 24-foot HD screen.

Backyard

Copy Link

This giant spot inside a warehouse in Deep Ellum has 45 TVs, which is insane, and a massive patio to boot. It’s dog friendly if you want to bring Fido along and the crowd really gets into the games. It’s a solid pick for a big group of folks — order a tray of sliders and onion rings to go with that bucket of beers and cheer as loud as you can.

Punch Bowl Social Dallas

Copy Link

Watch the game on TV while you play some games of your own, like bowling and ping-pong. Order plates of Low Country Crab Dirty Fries, a Colorado Bison Patty Melt, or chicken under a brick and enjoy.

Scout Dallas

Copy Link

Looking for a watch party for any and all sports? Scout has it covered. This spot in the Statler hotel in Downtown offers game day specials of $15 pitchers and $6 pints on draft beer, a $2 touchdown shot that’s available every time the “favored” team scores, and food specials too.

Green Door Public House

Copy Link

Down at the Farmer’s Market, this pub captures the vibes of the historic building its in — the door is green to echo the Prohibition-era sign that this spot has booze. At the bar revelers will find local beers, classic cocktails, and a little drink called the Pink Thong which should be a mandatory order. There’s also an extensive menu of sandwiches, salads, tacos, and bigger dishes like a chicken fried ribeye.

Henry's Majestic

Copy Link

While Henry’s isn’t a sports bar per say, it is a great place to find a perch and watch the game (any game) with some great food and a drink in hand. For football play off season and during the Super Bowl, it’s offering specials including $15 buckets of Estrella , $3 draft beers, and $10 burgers and wings (Korean barbecue or Henry’s hot) with fries.
