Kansas: Johnny’s Tavern
> Located: Prairie Village

One of 11 Johnny’s locations in Kansas and Missouri, this is “an official watch party spot for the KU Alumni Association & fans alike!” It’s also a top spot for Chiefs fans, and on the weekends its screens show NFL Sunday Ticket, Big 10 Network, ESPN+, the Longhorn Network, and more. “You can’t move your eyes without seeing a TV,” wrote one Yelp reviewer.

Kentucky: JerZee’s Pub
> Located: Newport

Newport is just across the river from Cincinnati, so it’s hardly surprising that the home team here is the Bengals. JerZee’s screens the games on “too many TVs to count,” and offers game day specials like domestic beer buckets for $10. JerZee’s also subscribes to NFL Sunday Ticket, the Big Ten Network, ESPN+, and the Southeastern Conference’s SEC Network.

Louisiana: Bullet’s Sports Bar
> Located: New Orleans

“It’s all about the Saints here and we’re always wishing and hoping for a good season,” bar owner Rollin Garcia told Biz New Orleans a couple of years back, and the Saints memorabilia all over the walls supports his claim. Basically a neighborhood dive bar once featured on the HBO series “Treme,” Bullet’s offers live jazz and blues but also features what the drinks website Punch described as “television sets tucked in the back of the bar screen[ing] a constant loop of the day’s athleticism du jour, from almighty football to a down-and-dirty boxing match.”

Maine: Mark’s Place
> Located: Portland

For Pats games and college football alike, Mark’s gets high (pardon the expression) marks from Yelp reviewers. One was struck with the “awesome” wings and sandwiches, the “amazing” crowd and atmosphere, and the “[g]reat energy while cheering on the Pats to victory.” Yelp also dubbed it the best college football bar in Maine, and noted its “young crowd, loud music, and a slightly rowdier vibe.”

Maryland: Benders Sports Bar
> Located: Baltimore

“[T]ons of TVs,” a “super friendly, outgoing” owner/bartender, and a bring-your-own food policy pleased Yelp reviewers at this Baltimore hangout. The lack of a menu aside, Benders sometimes serves free pizza or fried chicken on game days, and there’s $2 draft beer and shooters on Super Bowl Sunday.
