Frontdoors Five: Top Spots to Watch Football This Season

Posted By on September 6, 2017

Football season is finally here — and half the fun of watching football is going out to your favorite bar to have a few beers and either celebrate or commiserate with friends. That’s why we put together a list of the top spots for your football viewing pleasure, whether you’re more invested in college football or the NFL, rooting for the Cardinals or another state’s team, a serious fan or a casual spectator.


  1. Majerle’s Sports Grill

While Majerle’s is named in honor of basketball legend Dan Majerle, we think it’s a pretty great spot to watch nearly any sport, including football. Its nearly 25 years in business serve as a testament to its great atmosphere and great service, and now, there are locations all across the state — from Flagstaff to Chandler.

  1. Pedal Haus

Pedal Haus, in the heart of Tempe, is the perfect spot for beer lovers to watch the game, they have everything you could want — from their own brews to fun seasonal beers, like the Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout. Even better, on Sundays all their beers are just $3. Not to mention, they have 38 TVs and an expansive patio.

  1. Arcadia Tavern

Arcadia Tavern is the place to be for big games — not only do they have great food and a solid beer selection, it’s centrally located in Arcadia, making it the perfect spot to gather you’re whole crew. Plus, there are more than enough TVs to go around, so you’ll never miss a play.

  1. Culinary Dropout at the Yard

Culinary Dropout is one of our favorite places to hang out — at its Phoenix or Tempe location. The great appetizers (like the pretzel fondue), fun cocktails and expansive yard make it a perfect place to watch the game. And with all the lawn games, those less interested in football can entertain themselves with a game of their own.

  1. Armadillo Grill

The Armadillo Grill has been attracting football fans for 20 years with its “eclectic American” cuisine, like fried pickles, black pepper calamari and enchiladas. Plus, the atmosphere is perfect for watching a big game with 44 high definition TVs.
