10 Places to Watch the Game

Seapoint Bar & Grill
A neighborhood favorite since 1979, this family-owned bar and grill is surrounded by flat screen TVs so you can watch your favorite game with ample sound and quality.  Slice into Seapoint’s famous steak tips, or opt for some potato skin teasers and enjoy the friendly and welcoming atmosphere.  Everyone loves a good Bloody Mary for brunch, and Seapoint is the place to get ’em!  Their mile-high Marys are a perfect addition to their tasty breakfast, which is served from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. every Sunday.  Not a big Boston sports buff?  Stick around when the game ends and enjoy Seapoint’s other forms of fun and entertainment, including live music and pool tables as well.  Don’t worry about parking, as there are plenty of spots to be filled right around the corner!  Seapoint’s Bar & Grill, 367 East Eighth Street, 617-268-1476.

Lincoln Tavern
One of Southie’s hottest spot, Lincoln  is always lively – especially during a game.  This spacious restaurant has gorgeous woodwork, high tin ceilings, big booths and plenty of flat screen TV’s.    Comfort food is king on Lincoln’s menu – spicy wings, kobe sliders, short ribs over truffled mac n’ cheese, burgers, fried chicken and wood-fired pizza.  The food will fill your belly without breaking the bank.  They’ve got plenty of beer on draught including Stella, Sam Adams and Blue Moon to name a few.
LincolnTavern, 425 West Broadway, Phone: (617) 765-8636 lincolnsouthboston.com

The Playwright
The Playwright is always ready for the game.  There’s plenty of TV’s plus a menu perfect for sharing with items like buffalo chicken dip, nachos, wings, plus burgers and mac n’ cheese!  On the weekends, post-game, stick around for live music featuring the best DJ’s and bands around.

L Street Tavern
When it comes to watching sports, Boston fans can be pretty particular with tradition (and enthusiastic for that matter).  Some people have to wear their favorite jersey, even if it’s covered in filth.  Others have to get in every word of the pre-game report while sipping on their favorite beer.  If you’re one of those Boston sports buffs who likes to hear the crowds cheer, and the sound of the ball hitting the bat when Big Papi makes that homerun, L Street Tavern turns off the music and turns the TVs up anytime there’s a game on.  Home of the famous Boston flick, Good Will Hunting, L Street is full of Southie history and some of the biggest sports fans in the area. Head on down for a “Sunday Funday” for your favorite game, and enjoy cheap drinks, good friends and good times!  195 L Street, 617-268-4335.

Touchie’s Shamrock Pub
Shamrock Pub is another great, no-nonsense local bar with cheap drinks and diehard Boston fans.  Grab a $4 cocktail or $2 Bud Light and catch the latest game with some of Southie’s best!  Just a block from the beach, Shamrock’s bartenders are friendly and welcoming, and serve up specialty drinks at your request.  If you’re hungry for a bite, Touchie’s has $7 burgers with fries and a fried haddock sandwich to boot.  If you’re looking for a great bar with flat-screen TVs and lots of local color, shimmy on down to Shamrock for the next game.  501 East Eighth Street, 617-268-0007.

The Broadway
This spacious restaurant offers plenty of beer on tap, signature cocktails, punch bowls to share, plus a menu filled with shareable appetizers like spicy wings, whipped feta, meatballs, tater skins and more! The Broadway also serves up hot and delicious wood fire pizza too! There are plenty of wide-screen TV’s to watch the game to make sure you don’t miss a play. The Broadway is located at 726 West Broadway.

Stats
Located in the heart of South Boston, Stats is THE place to be if you’re in your twenties/thirties.

This new and improved hot spot on West Broadway is a great place to watch the game.  Featuring plenty of flatscreen TV, appetizers like nachos, wings, and onion rings perfect for sharing!  Shenannigans also has a burger, flatbread pizza,  and a steak and cheese sandwich for those with a bigger appetite.  Order up a classic cosmo, a screwball martini and a harvest mule made with vodka, fresh lime and gingerbeer – are just a few of their featured cocktails!  There’s also plenty of beer on tap and bubbly for all!

Coppersmith
We can’t think of a better place to “hang” this season and watch the game than Coppersmith.  Complete with rooftop bar, patio, food trucks and fun and exciting events and specials, Coppersmith is THE place to be in Southie! As one of the newest rooftop bars in the city and the only in South Boston, Coppersmith’s Air Deck is a 3,000 sq ft coveted al fresco space outfitted with a vintage Airstream trailer-turned-full service bar, rustic chic picnic tables, flat screen TVs and stellar cityscape views.  Guests can sip cocktails by the glass or pitcher as they cheer on the Pats on the 12 ft projection screen located in the main dining room as well as via mounted TV’s around the main bar and  rooftop!

Roza Lyons:
This cozy hot spot might be the most intimate place to watch the game!  With 3 large TVs in the bar area, order ups some shareable plates like flatbread, crab cakes or lettuce wraps! Roza Lyons also features an excellent selection of craft beer, wine and craft cocktails, and serves up lunch and dinner 7 days a week!

  1. You guys always forget about the Clock Tavern (342 West Broadway)

    4 flat screens, pool, darts and $1.50 High Life Drafts!! Plus Keno and scratchies!

    I work Thursday nights there and also one Sunday double a month, one of my favorite shifts watching football with the regulars all day. and more and more often propel come in and say “Wow, this is my new favorite bar!”

    Come visit!

  2. We’re sorry we forgot The Clock!  Maybe we can do an article on the clock?  I haven’t been in there in forever!

  3. Best staff and low prices make this spot one of the best for chillin. They have ample large screen tvs. If you are looking for a perfect Soutie bar to enjoy drinks, company, and the game this is it. If you are looking to be someone you aren’t, there are a few other Southie choices for that. I like to stick with the basics and for that the Clock is numbero uno!
  4. The Clock really is a great place to watch a game.  The big screen is great…cheap beer…and always good company. 

  5. I love the place but Lincoln is an awful bar to watch a game.  They have about 5 tv’s in the whole place.  Stats or junction is a far better option and the people at those bars are usually there to watch the game, not join a sausage fest parade of out of town dudes to try to get lucky.

  6. BYOB and lawn chair to Tudor Street between E and F and hang out with your neighbors!

  7. Southie isn’t Southie anymore, it sucks now. They should call it Sucktown instead. The old Southie was tight, the new Southie uptight.
