Places to Watch UFC

elvisahmed Apr 28, 2011 11:56 PM

Hi Folks,
I would like to know if there are any places somewhat decent food in SF that show UFC as well. The place has to be in SF as I don't want to drive back. Beer selection is more important than the food (Belgian Beers on Tap would be great)
Thanks in Advance.

    UFC site lists Omni Hotel, Parlor Bar, Abbey Tavern, McKenzies Bar, Black Thorn, Silver Cloud, Danny Coyles, Irish Times and Butter. Call ahead, since these are places that are officially showing it they'll likely have a cover charge

        Haven't been to many of those places, prefer to watch at someone's home or other outlets.

          KC72 I am just one person so it doesn't make sense to order PPV.
          Fellow chowhounders if you were to pick which one would you pick
          McKenzie's Bar
          The Abbey Tavern
          and maybe I can venture as far out as Blackthorn

          Abbey Tavern
          4100 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA

          Anybody eaten at Irish Times? The menu looks OK:


          Butter's menu is an ironic hipster joke, microwaved Tater Tots and so on:


          The Omni's restaurant is Bob's Steak & Chop House, a branch of a Texas chain, never heard anything good about it, they don't even know what dry-aging means.

            don't forget the hilarious and strong cocktails too at butter., like the sunny D and vodka

            just got an e-mail from butter with drink specials for tomorrow night; also note that there's a yelp promotion going on right now for spend $13 to get $25 of food/drink at butter.

            Drink Specials for this event:

            -$2 Jello Shots
            -$3 PBR's
            -$4 any beer of your choice (tap, bottle or can)
            -$5 well cocktails or shots

              for what it's worth, the tater tots actaully fall in the "deep fried" category, not the micorwave category :)

                Just came back from Abbey's jeez what a sump. They don't serve any food!! There was no place to sit as the few chairs they had were taken. Filthy washrooms. 15$ cover!! Beer is the saving grace I guess which is cheap and I guess attracts a certain kind of crowd. Will not go there again.
