Bar with TV/sports or sports bar help in SF?.

rln Apr 24, 2009 07:09 PM

I'm looking for a place for about 10 people coming from many places (NYC, Nicaragua, LA, etc) visiting. so we can watch a fight next Sat May 2 (Pacquiao fight).

I don't know sports bars at all!

Any tips for place with decent food, drinks. Good neighborhood for visitors to see would be a plus. I will check if they plan on having the fight.

Thank you for any thoughts!

    Some places you can try: Abbey Tavern, Underdog's, Jillian's, 4th St Bar & Grill and Kezar Pub.

    With a group that size, I'd rather just ppv it myself and order food in. Sometimes places that air ppv events will charge cover. Go PacMan!

    Kezar Pub & Restaurant
    770 Stanyan St, San Francisco, CA

    Jillian's @ Metreon
    101 4th St, San Francisco, CA 94103

    The Taco Shop at Underdog Sports Bar & Grill
    1824 Irving St, San Francisco, CA

    Abbey Tavern
    4100 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA

      Well, if you want decent food, too, there is Jones in the Marina. Also a place in the Hyatt on Fisherman's Wharf. Forget its name, maybe Knuckles?

        Yeah, that place is Knuckles. There's one in Burlingame also (I think).

        Try Pete's Tavern on King St across from Pac Bell Park.

          Thanks. Funny, I just called Pete's -looked good, but they don't do fights. They directed me to Jillian's, which will have it. Still calling others.
