Why Sports Bars Are Better for Game Day Than Stadiums November 14, 2019

Why Sports Bars Are Better for Game Day Than Stadiums, St. Petersburg, Florida

The professional football season is underway, so it’s time to find the ideal place to catch every game. While the stadium may seem like the obvious choice, a sports bar is actually your best bet. Here are just reasons why your local sports bar is the ideal place to catch the game.

5 Reasons to Watch the Game at a Sports Bar

1. Great Food & Drinks

Stadium fare tends to be limited to nachos, pretzels, hot dogs, and light beer, while most sports bars double as restaurants. You’ll have access to a full menu of delicious fresh food, not to mention a well-stocked bar. When you’re at a sports bar, you’ll have much better options for meals, snacks, and refreshments.

2. Better Service

sports barIf you get hungry or thirsty at a stadium, you have two choices: walk away from the action, or stand in line during halftime. At a sports bar, the food comes to you while you watch the game. Your server will take care of anything you need, so you won’t miss a minute of the action. There’s no need to stumble over fellow spectators with your hands full to get back to your seat.

3. Good Company

The sports bar you choose will likely have specific teams they cater to. You can cheer on your favorite team with fellow fans without having to worry about hecklers or fights.

4. More Affordable

Between overpriced parking, tickets, concessions, and merchandise, watching professional football in person is costly. At a sports bar, the cost of a drink is all that’s necessary. If you’re in the habit of watching every game, going to the bar is a much more budget-friendly solution.

5. Finer Details

Although the energy at football stadiums can be exciting, it’s easy to miss plays or lose sight of the ball. High-quality network broadcasts on big-screen TVs will give you a much clearer view of the action. From running commentary to instant replays, you’ll get all the details you need to fully enjoy the game.
