The football season is finally upon us, and we all know what that means: we’re going to need a place to watch the most exciting moments of each game. A certain magical quality exists when you gather with other sports fans to cheer on your favorite team, and that magical quality is only amplified by watching the game at a local hangout.

If you want to experience a diehard crowd with an authentic pub atmosphere,
look no farther than Lucky’s. Since opening in 2007, Lucky’s Pub has established itself as a home base for local sports fans to drink, dine and watch the game on their 21-foot television. Located in East Downtown, Lucky’s also sports a prime location to pregame before you attend a game. If there is a football game on, you can expect drink specials that include $20 beer buckets.

If it’s game day and you find yourself wondering, “Where can I watch the game and get an award winning burger?” then you’ll find your answer at Christian’s Tailgate in Midtown. The walls are adorned with Texans and Cougars flags and the beer taps are full of local craft favorites. Parking can be limited, so utilizing carpooling or services like Uber is definitely something to take into consideration. However you choose to arrive at Tailgate, you’ll leave with a full stomach and game-day experience.

Since opening in 2013, Plucker’s has made their presence well-known through their unique wing flavors and signature mixed drinks. They were named one of the “Top 10 Wing Restaurants in America” by USA Today – a title not taken lightly as you find out while enjoying their Ginger Peach Sirracha and Dr Pepper flavored wings. Centrally located in the Heights, Plucker’s is an ideal spot to meet your friends. But make sure you have at least one person to hold a table in advance because space fills quickly during any local games.

Nestled outside the loop in Briar Meadows, Nick’s Place is a neighborhood darling that all outer-loopers should be enjoying.

Whether you are ordering their Cheeseburger Cheese Sticks, Fried Mac N’ Cheese or a specialty pizza, you will not be disappointed when you stop in.
