any decent sports bars in Erie

What is the best sports bar in Erie? I am visiting in August and would love to find a place with a decent beer selection, good food, and decent screens to watch the games. Any suggestions?

I would suggest Sandbar on Penisula Street. They have a big screen and a good beer selection.

It depends on whether you don't mind driving. I like downtown Erie. State street area. For local pub / food / beer, Calamaris wins hands down. I'm in my 30s now and I have lived in Erie for 5 years now. Depending on what area you are staying in I can recommend something perhaps close to your lodging.

2 dance clubs that come to mind are Cougars and the Cell Block. These are in the downtown district. (state street/14th street). Approx. 15 min. drive from the mall area. There are lots of other bars in the state street area. Country bar with dancing is Doc Holidays that I think of first for country fun. It's closer to the casino.

Oh you bet! No to all bars allowing smoking. It's a mixed bag in this area that do allow it. It's based on food sales vs. alcohol sales...gov. regulated. One good hangout bar around the mall is fox and the hounds by the way.
