Catch the Big Game at These Top Nashville Sports Bars
17 great game-day spots to eat wings, drink beer, and watch sports
Scoreboard Bar & Grill
Open since 1996, Scoreboard Bar & Grill across from the Opryland Hotel is known for smoked barbecue and hot chicken — and it’s also a popular place to watch football. Take note that this is an official Packers Backers bar.
Noble's Kitchen & Beer Hall
While the Break Room lounge and patios on the second floor of this Maxwell beer hall are for adults only, the first floor of Noble’s is family-friendly until 10 p.m. and has plenty of screens throughout to take in those weekend games. You’ll also find dozens of craft beer drafts and even more bottles and cans, plus sliders, smoked meats, and a meat-and-three menu with plenty of classic options.
Beyond the Edge
Beyond the Edge in Five Points has a solid selection of beers on tap with daily two-for-one drink deals, a pretty extensive food menu focused on wings, quesadillas, and burgers, and over 30 televisions.
Neighbors (multiple locations)
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 as well. Each location does some of its own things in terms of menu and entertainment, but they all show sports when you need to catch a game, 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)
Every Sunday, pro football fans can stop by any of Party Fowl’s Nashville-area bars, including the downtown original, to enjoy every live, out-of-market game thanks to NFL Sunday Ticket. The massive Donelson location of this combination hot chicken joint and sports bar 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)
The Corner Pub has a bunch of places where you can catch a game throughout Nashville, including this downtown spot featuring big screens galore — capped off by a massive 48-foot LED video wall. The large Vegas-style bar offers 48 draft beers, which pair well with football, wings, nachos, and cheese fries.
If bone-in Nashville hot chicken and Broadway are on the to-do list, it’s possible to enjoy both while also cheering on your favorite team. In addition to bowling, mechanical bulls, and several stages for live entertainment, Nashville Underground, a four-story bar and restaurant downtown, offers NFL Sunday Ticket and plays featured games on the massive LED floor screen that otherwise acts as a dance floor.
City Tap House Nashville
This Philadelphia-based chain’s SoBro location has a huge space for watching the game, including a 15-foot LCD video wall to watch every touchdown and tackle extra closely. The hefty list of beer, wine, and cocktails plus a wide range of better-than-typical gastropub fare — like mussels with roasted garlic butter — make this an appealing option for watch parties of all sizes and ages.
Crimson Tide fans convene at Dawghouse, a rowdy Music Row music venue that doubles as a sports bar. There’s no bad seat in the house — you can see a TV screen from any of them while you chow down on beer-battered cheese sticks or share a sausage platter with fellow Alabama fans.
The Gumbo Bros
The Gumbo Bros may have started in Brooklyn, but chef Adam Lathan grew up in Alabama, met his cofounder at LSU, and learned to make a proper New Orleans soup from his great-grandmother, so this buzzy restaurant in the Gulch has Cajun cred. Come football season, expect lots of LSU and Saints fans ordering hurricanes and Tabasco margaritas at the expansive TV-lined bar, perfect with earthy gumbo or a fried shrimp po’ boy and a sno-ball.
Broadway Brewhouse is an old-school game-day mainstay known for affordable prices, wings and Cajun dishes like crawfish etouffee, daily happy hours, and abundant taps with a mix of interesting beers. The Midtown dive also provides plenty of TVs and a feeling like nothing ever changes in Nashville, which has its charm.
The Lost Paddy Irish Pub and Restaurant
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, songwriters nights, and live bands.
Double Dogs (multiple locations)
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 Hillsboro Village and Sylvan Heights.

South Side Kitchen & Pub
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, from salads to burgers to entrees like fish and chips. The Bourbon BBQ Nachos are a perfect game-day treat.
M.L.Rose Craft Beer & Burgers (multiple locations)
M.L.Rose, a comfortable restaurant named for its Melrose surroundings, now has locations in Sylvan Park and Capitol View too, and each of them has TVs interspersed throughout. Eclectic burgers, wings, and loaded waffle fries pair well with the large, well-curated beer list during game time, and the West Nashville location has a great outdoor space where fans can hang out and play giant Jenga at halftime.
Crow’s Nest in Green Hills is a two-story restaurant and bar packed with TV screens and plenty of seating. There are loads of beers on tap, plus a solid bar-food situation involving house-made pizza rolls, pickle chips, and pulled pork sliders.
Looking to avoid the traffic and crowds downtown? Linger on the edge in Belle Meade, eating ribs or Sam’s supreme Kitchen Sink pizza. TV screens line the exterior of the dining area at Sam’s Place so it’s easy to watch the game from wherever you’re sitting.
