The Best Bars in the United States and Around the World to Watch Boston Sports!

December 30, 2020

We know Covid is all kicking us in the dicks right now but eventually, someday, we will be going about our lives again in a semi-normal manner. So when that day comes use this comprehensive list to watch the game no matter where in the country, or world, you find yourself!

We put together this wicked pissah list in case you find yourself outside of New England when one of our favorite teams are playing. They don’t call it Red Sox Nation or the Patriots Army for nuttin. In every state (that is worth visiting) there is at least one Boston Sports friendly bar New Englanders can feel right at home and watch Boston kick some ass.

Below is the most comprehensive list of Boston Sports Bars in the United States and around the world!

This place is more for Boston transplant retirees who want to watch the game while eating great seafood. Basically we are saying it is very tame.


Fort Myers

Boston Ale N Tale

Opened in 2011, the owner (Richard) is originally from Fall River and he spent 7 months building his dream Boston Fan Sports Bar in the city where the Red Sox hold spring training.

 Capones Pub and Grill
4 Locations: CDA/Post Falls/Hayden/Ponderossa Springs

This may not be a dedicated Boston Sports haven, but it is dedicated to all things sports! They post having more beers on tap than tables to sit at. Food is banging and the staff is super friendly. This place isn‘t about pleasing the status quo or knocking the rust off old pick-up lines. It‘s about hanging out with friends, watching games, and having a good drink with a great meal. Good times await!

The only good thing to come from this state is Larry Bird. He left as soon as he became an adult and came to the greatest city on earth. You should never be in Indiana unless you are visiting his birth home as a tourist.


Des Moines

Felix & Oscar’s Pub
4050 Merle Hay Road (Haymarket Mall)
