If you’re a New England Patriots fan, your biggest concern isn’t “Will the Pats win this one?” Rather, you’re more likely to be focused on where you’re going to watch the big game, and what you’re going to eat and drink during it. In this post, we’re going to cover a few (of many) of Boston’s top bars to catch the Pats.
Did you just catch a Red Sox game at Fenway Park and now you need a place to see the Patriots game? Walk right down the street and tell your friends to meet you over at Game On! Located in the Fenway neighborhood, Game On! is your modern venue that radiates the classic "warms-your-soul" sports bar feel. Not a Pats fan and can't stand watching the game? Game On! has you covered with 30+ TVs, two floors equipped with full bars, six regulation ping pong tables, cornhole sets, and even an official Fenway Park batting cage. Along with providing Max and Leo's unique and delicious styles of pizza, Game On! is a great destination for every sports fan.
There’s nothing quite like a Sunday football barbecue, right? Backyard Betty’s does just that, with homemade style barbecue and pub fare courses that will leave you craving more. Located in South Boston, Backyard Betty’s is a great mix of a casual sit down restaurant and a high energy sports bar. With #SundayFunday as their slogan during Pats season, you can find a vibrant crowd here on Sundays having drinks and playing cornhole while celebrating another win.
Sometimes the excitement of the Patriots football games won’t let you sit still. That’s where Lucky Strike comes in. Just outside of Boston, Lucky Strike has eight bowling lanes, an arcade, shuffleboard courts, and a full service bar, and classic gastropub fare and cuisine. This Lucky Strike location is a new and modern space located next door the Assembly Row shopping center in Somerville and it’s the perfect location for an afternoon out with the family, or just a Sunday out with your Patriots super fan friends. When the Pats score, so do you!
Maybe you’d like to visit a quainter venue that has delicious food, but don’t want to miss the game. The Blarney Stone is the best of both worlds, with a family friendly, open-spaced restaurant that has plenty of booths, an outside patio for a nice fall afternoon, and a bar to get a closer view of Tom Brady while he’s under center. Voted one of the Best Neighborhood Bars in Boston in 2017 by Boston Magazine, The Blarney Stone makes you feel right at home. Fun fact: The Blarney Stone was the first bar in America to sell Guinness on draft!
The Coppersmith is the ideal spot for a Pats fan who enjoys having space. Occupying an industrial warehouse, the venue offers a large amount of indoor and outdoor space, enough to squeeze 500 people. Several of their amenities include 10+ TVs, a 12-foot projector screen (perfect for upcoming Super Bowl LIV), two indoor food trucks, and a vintage Airstream bar. If you’re a fan of Bloody Marys as well and want to keep the party at your place, you’re in luck! The Coppersmith offers a To-Go Bloody Mary Bar where they provide you all of the ingredients for the best Bloody Marys. Just add booze!
