Scoreboard Bar & Grill

Copy Link

Open since 1996, Scoreboard Bar & Grill across from the Opryland Hotel has been known for its smoked barbecue and hot chicken — but it’s also a popular place to watch football with over 45 television sets positioned throughout the bar. You’ll find the requisite sports bar grub — like pulled pork nachos, wings, and pizza — along with an assortment of bushwhackers.

Noble's Kitchen & Beer Hall

Copy Link

While the Break Room lounge on the second floor of this East Nashville beer hall is for adults only, the first floor of Noble’s is family-friendly until 10 p.m. and has plenty of screens to take in those weekend games. You’ll also find dozens of craft beer drafts (there are 60 taps) and even more bottles and cans served alongside sliders, smoked meats, and a meat-and-three menu with plenty of classic options.

Beyond the Edge

Copy Link

Beyond the Edge in Five Points has a solid selection of 25 beers on tap with two-for-one drafts on Thursday (and two-for-one beers on Sunday), a pretty extensive food menu focused on wings, quesadillas, and burgers, along with over 30 TVs for prime sports viewing.

Neighbors (multiple locations)

Copy Link

What began as a little offshoot of a hair salon in Sylvan Park has become a popular three-bar operation for co-owners Victoria and Zach Piller, who now have boisterous locations in Germantown and Franklin. Each location does some of its own things in terms of menu and entertainment, but they all broadcast sports games on their multiple TV sets, deck the walls with memorabilia, offer a variety of beers, and serve their own properly smoked meats like wings and pork shoulder.

Party Fowl (multiple locations)

Copy Link

Every Sunday, pro football fans can stop by any of Party Fowl’s Nashville-area bars — including the downtown original — to enjoy live NFL games. The massive Donelson location of this hot-chicken-sports-bar hybrid is a particular game-day favorite, boasting 46 TVs, six sound zones, a dedicated area upstairs for watch parties, and two full bars slinging boozy slushies and Southern fare.

Corner Pub (multiple locations)

Copy Link

The Corner Pub has a bunch of locations throughout Nashville where you can catch a game, including this downtown spot capped off by one of the biggest LED panel TVs in Nashville along with twenty 65” TVs throughout the restaurant. The large Vegas-style bar offers 48 draft beers, which pair well with football and all of the wings, nachos, and cheese fries on the menu.

Bringles Smoking Oasis

Copy Link

Pitmaster Carey Bringle of Peg Leg Porker brought his smoked meats to the Nations with this family and pet-friendly outdoor oasis stocked with cornhole boards, picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and a myriad of jumbo TV screens — perfect for game day viewing. Grab some of the Texas-style brisket, smoked turkey, or the popular pastrami to go with the draft beer and frozen drinks on the menu. The restaurant recently installed a massive outdoor awning so you can watch the game come rain or shine.

Tee Line

Copy Link

Part sports bar, part bowling alley, Tee Line is also Nashville’s first curling bar, with three full sheets of ice to practice your technique on. But when you’re done sharpening your skills in hopes of Olympic glory, there are 26 TVs for watching a variety of sports games and a full menu of pub grub in the order of wings, pizza, burgers, and soft pretzel bites with beer cheese to keep you full in between rounds of the craft brew on tap.

Almost Friday Sporting Club

Copy Link

The first physical restaurant by Almost Friday Media, the downtown sporting club feels like a cross between a college sports bar and a slick nightclub. The 5,500-square-foot space features craft beers on draft, pub grub like nachos, wings, burgers, and corndogs, beer pong (and bongs), and big screen TVs for optimal game day view.

The Lost Paddy Irish Pub and Restaurant

Copy Link

Irishman Micheál O’Leary’s traditional Irish pub opened in 2019, providing a space for screening football games while eating bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, and crispy Guinness-battered fish and chips. The sound is on for all games, but on other nights of the week, you’ll find karaoke, trivia, and live bands.

Double Dogs (multiple locations)

Copy Link

You never need to miss a moment of the game at Double Dogs: In addition to a large projection wall, you’ll find TVs everywhere — bathroom included. This sports bar chain with frosted mugs, hot dogs, and dog-friendly patios has Nashville locations in both Hillsboro Village and Sylvan Heights.

South Side Kitchen & Pub

Copy Link

Daniel Bockman’s South Side Kitchen & Pub on Nolensville Pike has become a go-to neighborhood sports hang. The selection of cocktails and beers is thoughtful and the pub menu is familiar but high quality, dishing up jumbo wings, fried pickles, and entrees like fish and chips and the South Side smash burger with two smash patties, American cheese, and comeback sauce. The pub nachos with Guiness-braised brisket are a perfect game-day treat.

M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers (multiple locations)

Copy Link

M.L.Rose, a comfortable restaurant named for the Melrose neighborhood it calls home, now has locations in Sylvan Park, Capitol View, and Mt. Juliet, too. Each of them has TVs interspersed throughout along with an eclectic selection of burgers (which exclusively use a proprietary blend of beef from local butcher Porter Road), wings, and loaded waffle fries that pair well with the large, well-curated beer list. The Sylvan Park location has a great outdoor space where fans can hang out and play giant Jenga at halftime.

Sports & Social

Copy Link

Sports & Social opened its first Nashville location at the Mall at Green Hills in the fall of 2023 and took over an 8,900-square-foot space with a 33-foot LED media wall for watching multiple games and sporting events at once. The menu is curated by James Beard Award nominee John Suley and includes jumbo wings that have been brined for 24 hours, pepperoni flatbread, and a Nashville hot chicken sandwich. During half time, you can play skeeball and hoops.

Sam's Place

Copy Link

If you’re looking to avoid the traffic and the downtown crowds, you can opt to linger on the outskirts of Nashville over in Belle Meade eating ribs at Sam’s or sinking your teeth into its supreme Kitchen Sink pizza. TV screens line the exterior of the dining area, so it’s easy to watch the game from wherever you’re sitting. There’s also a second location in Nipper’s Corner.
