Sports Bar near Beverly/Fairfax?

Does anyone know of a sports bar with good food where I can watch football games? I used to live in Santa Monica and would rather find places near my new home by the Grove. I went to Busby's down on Wilshire, but the menu and seating options leave something to be desired. Thank you!

  1. They have a t.v. at St. Nick's pub on Third just east of La Cienega. They also have televisions at Barney's Beanery on Santa Monica just east of La Cienega. Tom Bergin's, on Fairfax south of Wilshire also has several t.v.s showing sporting events.

    The best sports bar in the area, although it's a little farther afield, is Hollywood Billiards, on Hollywood Blvd. just west of Wiltern.

    All of these places have varying degrees of bar/pub grub -- I don't really know of any sports bars that are noted for their superior food (other than Ye Rustic Inn in Los Feliz, which has amazing chicken wings).

    1. I'd say Tom Bergin's is your best bet.

      Snake Pit on Melrose is another option.

      1. The Little Bar on La Brea at 8th Street is a sports bar that shows football games. However it is kind of Boston-centric, so there's a lot of Patriots fans there, but they show other games as well.

        1. Not crazy about the food here, but great atmosphere:

          1. When I was living near 3rd and Fairfax, I went to either Tom Bergin's or Barney's Beanery. Also, in a real pinch, in the Farmer's Market itself were a few TVs that I could watch, but obviously they weren't really a sports bar.

            You could extend your boundaries a bit and join us all at Big Wangs on Cahuenga and Selma.
