Best Baseball Bars In Sacramento

Baseball is a sport beloved by Americans for generations. No other sport in the United States can boast being America's favorite pass time.
There are sports bars all over Sacramento, but some are better suited for baseball fans than others. True baseball fans want to see more than just the San Francisco Giants playing, they want all the games. The following bars are the most likely to meet the needs of die hard baseball fans in the Sacramento area. All of the below bars have Extra Innings (baseball's version of Sunday Ticket) except for Alley Katz.
The Clubhouse Bar & Grill
5150 Fair Oaks Blvd.
Carmichael, CA 95608
(916) 979-1422

We already know you can watch a baseball game at The Clubhouse Bar and Grill. In addition to the baseball, you can play a game of darts or beer pong. Depending on the day, you can also catch some live music. The Clubhouse Bar & Grill also does on and off site catering. If you have a large party of sports fanatics, say the size of a baseball team, Clubhouse can accommodate.

Bunz Sports Pub & Grub
311 Judah St.
Roseville, CA 95678
(916) 786-6655

Bunz Sports Pub & Grub was named Best Sports Bar 2014 on KCRA3's A-List. Bunz is not just a great place to watch your favorite baseball game, it's a great place for all sports known to mankind. Something setting this bar apart from most is the genuine family atmosphere with video games and a pool table on the second level for kids to enjoy. If giant beer is what you fancy, then try a 27 oz. "Gusto" or perhaps try one of their Blood Mary's, voted "Best In Roseville." 15 flat screen tvs add to the draw as sports fans can enjoy just about any sporting event that's taking place.

Double Nickel Sports Bar
3443 Laguna Blvd., Suite 150
Elk Grove, CA 95758
(916) 226-2900

Let's just for a second forget about the baseball which of course can be watched whenever it's on. We should talk about the catfish fritters, pork shoulder, brisket and GIANT three level smoker on property. The Nickel is one of the Sports Bars in town that knows how to combine sports with brunch. If you need proof to support that statement then drop in and try their Batter Down Pickles, Smoked Buffalo Wings or Joe's Sloppy Eggs. Enjoy an adult beverage from the modest beer and wine selection or craft cocktail from their list while crossing your fingers for a home run.

Firestone Public House
1132 16th St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 446-0888

It's uncertain to me at this point how many lists Firestone has made on this site but, here they are again. 60 beers on tap and 22 flat screen tvs will make it easy to watch the baseball game in any corner of the room. A full menu with a vast selection of tasty treats can be had at Firestone. The brunch at Firestone is another Sacramento contender with their bottomless mimosas and bacon Bloody Marys.

Alley Katz
2019 O St.
Sacramento, CA 95811
(916) 442-2682

Many things come to mind when someone thinks about Alley Katz, first and foremost would probably be something beer related. Something else significant is the fact they show UFC/MMA fights free of charge, as in $0 for admission. While Alley Katz doesn't offer the Extra Innings package, if a game is being played, you can be certain you'll be able to catch it at Alley Katz. This bar has also been known to put on a pretty good event from time to time, whether it be an after fight part or something related to midtown cocktail week or beer week.
