Place to watch Patriot's game in the Theater District

Going to a concert on Sunday night at the Wilbur Theater but want to go watch the Patriot's game first. Rock Bottom is closed for renovations - any other suggestions??

  1. Intermission Lounge, on Tremont near Stuart. Not a true sports bar, but plenty of TVs and ok food.

      The Tam on that same block is similar: cheap, divey, and will certainly have the game on. Of course, the last time I was in there at 6pm on a Saturday night, one sad customer at the bar was so hammered he was sucking on a stack of cork bar coasters. We edged away from him.

        You gotta love the Tam. Not many like them around anymore.

        Since I love dive bars, the Tam would be my choice.

          Agreed....but first get some banh mi @ Mei Sum and take it to the Tam to eat with a beer or two while you watch the game. My experience is that it's a decent pre-show option...or the best cheapest night out in Boston! ;)

    2. MJ O'Connor's in Park Plaza might be an option for you.

        The Rattlesnake could work. It is only a 5-7 minute walk down Boylston Street.

      2. I watched some of the game yesterday at Jacob Wirth's..fine if you get a bar seat near the TV..great beer selection. Old time German beer hall atmosphere. Most of the food is eh.

        1. davio's has giant tvs. and their food is a notch above the tam's. ;)

            Davios only has one tv on the non restaurant side of the bar, I think. No tv on the restaurant side, I am pretty sure. Or else they were hiding it the other day.

            If the Tam has food, I wouldn't eat it!

              my recall is more, tvs, but i have no dog in this fight.

              there is also the last hurrah at the parker house.

                I could be crazy but went to Davios to watch a game recently and as far as we could tell there was one (or 2?) TVs on one side of the bar.

                It's a nice choice though. Obviously pricier than others.

          2. Bistro du Midi is close by and has a couple TVs in the downstairs area.
