The topic we are covering today is “best bars to watch a game.” So, what constitutes being a great spot to do just that? It could be the TV setup, people, food and drink specials or just overall atmosphere and camaraderie. Metro Detroit is full of great bars. While I am sure many of you have your “go to” watering hole, take a look at the list below and consider visiting somewhere new. After all, variety is the spice of life, right?

Northville Sports Den located at 133 W. Main St., in Downtown Northville was voted “Best Sports Bar” via Observer and Eccentric Media’s People’s Choice Awards in 2013. This place is the ultimate sports bar. It offers 18 high-definition televisions scattered all over the bar, a terrific happy hour and food and drink specials during games. Happy hour is offered all day (yes all day) on Mondays, and from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. the rest of the week. Enjoy $1 off of drafts and wine, $5 appetizers, $3 well drinks and $4 bombs during this joyous hour. Sporting events happen every day, so check out the meal deals the den offers, including “Taco ‘Twos’ Days” where you can get two tacos for $3!

Hermann’s Olde Town Grille, 195 W. Liberty, Plymouth, is not your average sports bar, but it is a great place to go to cheer on your favorite teams. With free trivia every Monday and Thursday night, a fully decked out game room and 24 TVs, what’s not to like? The pizza comes highly recommended and don’t forget about $0.50 off of beer and mixed drinks during happy hour. Happy hour is all day long on Sundays and Hermann’s offers nightly beer specials, including $2.25 domestic drafts on Tuesdays. Head to “the most popular bar in Plymouth” to catch the Tigers, or to enjoy some NHL or NBA playoffs.

Mallie’s Sports Grill & Bar located at 19400 Northline Rd., in Southgate is another great option. The walls are filled with photos of local and national celebrities who love to stop by the bar while in town. Mallie’s does things big. For instance, take a gander at the extreme challenges. The “Hell Fire Hat Trick” asks you to eat a Hellfire Burger, six Hellfire Wings and a bowl of Hellfire Chili in 30 minutes. The “10 lb. Monster Burger Challenge” tests you to eat a 10 pound burger in two hours or less (do it and it is free). Both challenges allow you to win gift certificates, t-shirts and more. Check out the specials as well. This bar gives you enormous portions of food and sports? Count me in.

Mercury Burger and Bar resides at 2163 Michigan Ave., in Detroit and is one of the best burger spots in the D. With 15 burgers and several sandwiches, Mercury Bar is the perfect place to cheer on one of our beloved Detroit teams while eating great food. The garlic fries are highly coveted, but let’s not undermine the fact that bacon fries and sweet potato fries are also available! For you folks looking for a healthier way to enjoy the game try one of the four salads. Mercury offers great prices as well: no burger costs more than $9.50 and the only item in double digits territory is the fish and chips ($12.50).

Sports Brew Pub, 166 Maple St., Wyandotte, is the only brewery in Wyandotte. With 25 TVs and in-house brewed signature beers, the Sports Brew Pub is a fantastic option to watch some sporting entertainment. Did I mention it has 75 different sandwiches? Covered outdoor seating with TVs and sound doesn’t sound too shabby either. Join the beer club for some cool specials and extra perks. In my opinion, there is something great about watching a game while drinking a beer you know was brewed on location.

No matter what your favorite spot is to celebrate Detroit sports, it is nice to know that our area offers so many. There is a real sense of community with that.
