Now that L.A. has our own NFL team again, locals are more excited than ever for football season. Whether you are heading out to cheer on the Rams or the USC Trojans, you have plenty of fun sports bars to choose from right here in Santa Monica. These are a few of our favorites.
Barney’s Beanery sports HD TV’s, 40 beers on tap, and a newspaper-sized menu. One of the chain's seven locations is right here in Santa Monica, making them a great choice for watching the games.
Head to the Olympic Collections facility to find the excellent sports bar, Butcher's Dog. The British-inspired pub has fewer televisions than the other options on this list, but the modern bar menu makes up for it.
Santa Monica's first and favorite Irish Gastropub, Sonny McLean's is a fantastic choice for catching college or NFL games. Their beer selection is top-notch and the menu of traditional pub fare is reasonably priced.
If you are looking for a sports bar with a neighborhood feel, you can't do better than Rick's Tavern on Main. Rick's is a traditional American sports bar, and it is as low-key and unpretentious as you can get.
