Miami: Place to watch BCS Championship

A few of us will be flying in to Miami for work. We will arrive this evening.

Anyone have suggestions for a good location to watch the game (good food, decent crowd)? We will be split between two different Hyatt Regencies -- one in Coral Gables and one on SE 2nd.

We will have rental cars, but we would prefer not to drive forever and a day. (20ish minutes is good)

Thanks in advance.

  1. If you get desperate, try Lucky Strike in SOBE (kind of far), but definitely look for something in CG first.

    1. If you want raucous, Quarterdeck in South Beach on Alton. Walls are almost lined with flatscreens. Food isn't bad for a bar either.

        Quaterdeck is good, but Lucky Strike has projectors...Lucky strike's food aint bad either...

      2. For something more mellow there's Gordon Biersch. Better food, but not a sports bar per se. One negative was poor TV reception (at least when we went to see the Rose Bowl). Also, though I haven't been myself, Finnegan's on the River apparently has enough TVs for viewing. As for somewhere in the Gables, all I can think of is either the bar at Houston's or Duffy's Tavern (the former being much more upscale than the latter).
