Beer & sports

This place is what you can define what a sports bar is. Wide selection of beers and decent food. Gets quite crowded after 17:00 hours but it is pleasant.

First time we went in we stood at the bar for about 10 minutes then left without being served. People sitting at the bar from 5pm can make it difficult to be served. Came back 2 days later a lot earlier.. grabbed a bucket of beers (corona) before it got busy and grabbed prime position for the Warriors game. 3... More

A bar that could easily be overlooked but once inside is massive. It's the bar for the beer lover, the choices are amazing. Food looked really good and the prices are really reasonable. Staff were very polite and attentive. Would definitely again

One of the best spots to catch a game (many options, screens, and areas within the bar). Solid food and service. Need to get their early if a big game is on! Good location and area within centre of the city.

It was nice to be able to go to a bar where you had things to do if you wanted. We thought about getting some... More

We were recommended this sports bar from the concierge in the hotel. It's just up from union square. You climb a few steps to the bar, it's open, inviting and very American. Lots of work colleagues go after work for drinks and food. The bar tender let us try a few beers until we found one we liked. They were... More

We stopped here for the 7th game of the Cubs World Series as we had just arrived from Chicago and needed somewhere to watch the game, that being said it was CRAZY crowded the night we were there but it made for a good environment for the game. Lots of TV's, great selection of beer, would definitely come back :)
