It's a no-brainer that Brooklyn is home to some of the best pizza joints in New York, but catching up with your favorite sports team and sinking some beers is also a key attraction. There’s nothing better than heading down and finding yourself a comfy couch with beers flowing, friends chatting, and the TV screen as wide as can be. Luckily, we’ve rounded up Brooklyn’s top five sports bars, so all you need to do is get yourself there, sink some bottles and place some sports bets on the winning teams – good luck!
1. Clara’s, Bushwick
If there’s a more up and coming area than Bushwick, we’d love to know! Head over to Clara’s on Melrose Street and dive into the ultimate sports-fueled frenzy. Open till 4am every day besides Sunday when it’s still open till 12am, this bar has a cool yet pub-like feeling. There are endless screens to watch live sports, projectors for the big events, and the food menu boasts a bunch. The neighborhood bar serves up classic pub food and the best bit? Cheap drinks, too! Serving buffalo wings that were voted as one of the “Best in Bushwick” by the Bushwick Daily, Clara’s is our number one spot for catching up with pals and chowing down on good sport and great food.
Oh, and no game day? No problem! This bar has booths, pool tables, jukeboxes and anything else you’d need for an all-night occasion.
2. BK Backyard Bar, Williamsburg
Aptly named ‘Brooklyn’s Largest Adult Playground’ the BK Backyard Bar screams the ultimate entertainment venue. This hot new sports and music bar exceeds 24,000 square feet making it a backyard oasis fit for a whole community. Bring along your buds, your family, and even your four-legged family members, and have some fun. The venue is fitted with over 25 TVs in total, so you can be sure to bag yourself a spot for enjoying NBA live betting in the great outdoors. Open 7 days a week, this bar is made for catching up on your no.1 sports teams every single day and finding your top spot for getting stuck in. A state-of-the-art beach volleyball court is fitted for those days that you’re not fancying a beer or three, or even when you need to send the kids off to play.
NY-sports enthusiasts can expect some marquee sport-watching matchups ready for the inaugural NBA event of the year – the In-Season. Catch your Brooklyn Nets shoot some hoops and enjoy the variety of food trucks to take your fancy when you’re feeling hungry. Don’t forget to go Monday through Thursday between 5pm and 7pm and get yourself some half price happy hour drinks – what could be better than that?
3. IV Purpose, Bed-Stuy
Located in the lively yet residential Bed-Stuy, IV Purpose is a party-packed sports bar and grill known for their cocktails and food. Offering food from wings to seafood and burgers IV Purpose is a one-stop shop for a good meal out and some old-fashioned sports watching. Featuring many TVs and an outdoor sport viewing area, it’s the perfect place to come rain or shine.

4. The Burger House, Bed-Stuy
Sometimes you need more than a few drinks and that’s okay. Head over to the speakeasy of Bed-Stuy called The Burger House, where you’ll be welcomed with juicy burgers and lashings of cocktails. Only a few years old, this venue offers food that’s wildly different to your regular American sports bar, but in the best possible way. Choose from the mashed salmon burger specialty or go for mac and ribs for your regular after work munchies.
If you’re looking for a taste of their delightful cocktails at a fraction of the cost, then make sure to take your spot Monday to Friday 4pm until 7pm. Remember, when you’re saving the dimes, the dollars will count themselves!
