Finding a sports bar in certain areas around the world can be pretty frustrating if a person is unfamiliar with the area at all. One way to be pointed in the right direction is to do a search online and see what others are saying about different areas.
A sports bar Chicago is going to be a lot different then a sports bar located in New York City or Los Angeles. For example, the sports that are supported are going to be vastly different. There are certain teams in areas that get a lot more support, and therefore, they will get top priority every single night.
Another thing to keep in mind is that little things such as beer selection, variety of food options and more will make experiences a bit different. Also look for chain options compared to local, one of a kind bars.
