If you’re an Auburn or LSU fan, keep it to yourself here. The Houndstooth is Crimson Tide territory. Sports Illustrated ranked it among the top college sports bars in the country. Watch the action on more than 40 high-def flat-screen TVs, including five 65″ screens above the bar and a 150″ projection screen. There are even TVs in the bathrooms.

Arizona: K O’Donnell’s Sports Bar & Grill

Founded by legendary poker player Kevin O’Donnell and now run by his daughter, this Scottsdale hotspot shows the game day action on more than 70 TV screens indoors and out. Post-game there’s a “reverse happy hour” running from 9 p.m. to closing every night. (If you’re a fan not just of football but of the sport of kings, O’Donnell’s also has facilities for off-track betting.)

California: 33 Taps Silver Lake
> Located: Los Angeles

The Silver Lake reincarnation of the Hollywood original styles itself a new kind of sports bar. Here, the pub grub (wings, nachos, burgers, assorted fries, even some vegan offerings) is made from scratch on site, and the beer is served from, yes, 33 taps featuring craft brews from LA and beyond. Oh, and there are big-screen TVs on every bit of wall that’s not covered with sports memorabilia.
