With football season back in action, you may notice a little extra hop in the step of some of your favorite football fans. A time when the air starts to cool, fans unite, and the weekends are blocked off for everything-football – for the football enthusiast, the happiest time of the year is upon us!
Whether you’re a die hard fan or just enjoy a good tailgatin’ spread, the perfect place to watch college football on the weekend is quite the addition to your fall social calendar. Here’s a rundown of some of our favorite places to enjoy a good gameday:
Hillsboro Village & Sylvan Park
Great game day fare aside, this place has got your TV and audio needs on lockdown. With plenty of flat screens, a large projector screen, and individual audio for each table, you won’t miss a play. Most novel perk? There are even TVs in the bathroom.
Melrose & Sylvan Park
The burgers do not disappoint, the waffle fries are what dreams are made of – and a little added bonus? 2-for-1 brunch drinks on Saturdays until 2pm.
With the perfect, 5 points location in East Nashville, this is a well-loved place to watch a game with the added convenience of being able to walk to a host of other bars before or after the game. Although with 125 beer options, that may not be needed.
Touting themselves as the “upscale” sports bar, if you find yourself on the west side of nashville, Jonathan’s Grille has enough TVs to please and some gourmet touches to your favorite bar food. P.S. $5 Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s and 2-for-1 beers-of-the-month on Saturdays!
Being a little south of Nashville on a game day means that you can treat yourself to the 70+ drafts of Brewhouse South. Their variety doesn’t stop there either, with an extensive menu, with a little cajun twist. And of course, there are plenty of TVs and a dart board!
Of course, sometimes you feel like you just need to be with your people and cheer for your team. Check out Eater’s SEC Football Watch party article here, and this slightly-outdated, but very extensive list from Reddit here for teams all over the country. Don’t forget to check with your Nashville-area alumni group for the latest details, as well!
Even with all these watch party options and amazing sports bars, one of the things we’re most excited about this fall is going to our favorite Middle Tennessee games in person!
