    SF Saloon is a solid choice

        I like SF Saloon because it doesn't tend to get too loud or crowded. I think the other places mentioned above meet the requirements in your original post, but can get super loud and will likely be madhouses tonight.

          Yes, agree with MollyO, it's not loud or abby the way a traditional sports bar is. And I'm sure they turn on the sound for Championship games.

            Upper West has a separate room with a life-size screen playing the games. I'm not sure if they turn the sound on. Maybe call and ask before you go?

              oooo, good to know. They've opened up for lunch now, right?? I think I've seen people there while I was at Trader Joe's.

          are you looking for a sports bar or a restaurant? first places that come to mind are Busby's, the Parlor, West 4th & Jane, and Barney's Beanery.

            Barney's Beanery - Westwood - Just opened has 60 TV's (none are tubes ?), with 2 projection screens of 100", 1 over the bar & 1 upstairs at the western-end.

            Good News - Parking structure "right" across the street (1 (?) hr. free) & a parking lot "right" next door.

            Bad News - NO happy hour yet ($5 menu with UCLA student card).

              Wow, he opened another one?! He has the same thing on the 3rd St Promenade.

              I kind of like the San Francisco Saloon on Pico, east of Centinela.

              I would also bet that it's on at Westside Tavern, in the Westside Pavilion mall.
