I am looking for a place to catch the hockey game over supper on Sunday.
Would like it to be walking distance from Copley Square.

Suggestions?

    A little farther but definitely in walking distance, the Corner Tavern on Mass Ave. Mellow, cozy, plenty of TVs, the food is way better than at the other places mentioned (in my opinion). I mean, it's not a sports bar per se, but I've only ever gone there to watch a Sox game.

      I agree with the Corner Tavern suggestion. It is smaller and probably quieter than the others mentions, but the food is a lot better.

        I completely agree w/ Corner Tavern as well. What a great place!! Sola's, the Irish bar down by the Lennox is actually pretty decent.

        *sigh* I miss working in Copley Square. Someplace different to eat every day.

        For Boylston street options:

        If you want to watch the game, you've got the following choices:

        McGreevey's is the only "real" sports bar in Copley Square, other than Champions, and their food is good (other than their burgers, for some reason).

        The bar side of Uno's has many TV's, and you know what you're going to get with the food (stick with the pizza)

        Pour House has great beer, lots of TV's, and . . . food.

        Whiskey's has many TV's and pretty good food. Service can be meh.

        For some reason I never went to Daisy Buchanans, but that's another option (ok, that's Newbury, but really close to Boylston)

        A bit further away, on Dartmouth Street is Clery's, which just changed their menu (only been there once since it changed, looks like the Met Grill's burger bar menu). Lots of TVs and good beer there.

        That should get you started

          Champions over at Marriot great to watch but your standard bar chow......Joe's on Newbury has two great bars and better food-especially if it's a nice day(doubt the sound will be on though)
