Great Spots to Catch a Game in Nashville


Nashville isn’t all about music, we love football too.  Whether it is college, semi-pro or the NFL,  Nashvillians are fanatical about their teams, but finding a really good bar to watch our favorite team isn’t easy. We have compiled a list of some of Nashville’s best spots to watch a game.

Jed’s Sports Bar & Grille

This bar is less than 1/2 mile from ParkCentral and a great place to watch a game.  There are several TVs, two levels, two patios with TVs so you can watch the game outside. Plus a cornhole (you have to love a bar with cornhole), a great beer selection and a lively vibe for young professionals.  They don’t get the best reviews for their food, but it would be hard to beat the location and the party atmosphere.

Sam’s Sports Bar and Grill

Consistently named the best sports bar in Nashville, this is a good spot to catch a game, but get there early, it fills up.  Sams is located at 1803 21st Ave S and is about 1.5 miles from your Nashville apartment.   There is free parking in the back, lots of TVs, good beer selection, good food, plenty of seating and a patio.  The crowds can be quite lively on Saturdays for college games, Sunday for NFL (even if Titans aren’t playing) and Monday nights.

Dawghouse Saloon

This saloon is only 1.5 miles from ParkCentral and has convenient seating so large or small groups can watch their favorite team.  They have an outdoor patio with a TV and a Sunday brunch.  Good pub fare and a lively atmosphere.

A really good bar to watch sports can be hard to find. Some distinguish themselves as “sports bars” while others just have a great vibe and a bunch of TVs ideal for watching sports. It took a lot of sports watching and drinking to come up with the list of the best sports bars in Nashville, but someone had to do it.

All of these locations have great beer selections, numerous televisions and cozy seating. You better not pre-game for too long to get a spot at these top sports bars — they fill up quickly on game days.

Good luck to whatever team you may be supporting. Cheers!
