Boston's Best Sports Bars

Boston locals love their sports teams. When tickets aren't readily available, or a trip to the park or arena isn't in the budget, there are plenty of places to go with friends to cheer on Boston's teams. Besides plenty of TVs to catch every moment, these spots also offer food, drinks, music and fun.

With its prime location right next to Fenway Park, Jerry Remy's boasts one of the best roof decks, menus and TVs for viewing all of the games. There are two 6.5x11-foot screen TVs and a menu packed with American food favorites to look forward to. When the weather warms up, guests head up to the roof for drinks and an unbeatable atmosphere, overlooking Fenway's right-field wall from the 45-seat patio.

There is a reason the line weaves out the door and around the block at the Harp. That's because it is a sports bar destination worth a visit by the TD Garden.

Located right in the Boston Marriott Copley Place is Champions. Offering a more upscale feel, this sports bar has plenty of beer (36 on tap to be exact) and cocktails, plus 18 wines by the glass and more lounge-like surroundings.
