When football season comes around, San Diego becomes an even more fun place to live than the rest of the year. 92101 real estate agents discuss 5 sports bars in or near the downtown San Diego area where NFL and college action can be thoroughly enjoyed.
1. The Bootlegger
Located at 804 Market Street, just south of the Northblock Lofts in East Village, this friendly spot is known for its delicious menu, which features affordable items like gourmet sliders and freshly baked pretzels. Chargers games can be watched in the back section.
2. Tilted Kilt Pub
This traditional East Village sports bar is well known among baseball fans due to its proximity to the Padres’ home stadium. However, it also gets busy when the Aztecs or the Chargers are playing. The menu offers standard appetizers as well as full meals. This bar is also a legendary people watching spot.
3. Kristy’s MVP
If you want a real football atmosphere, your best bet heading a little north of downtown to Kristy’s in the Midway District. Although fans of the Chargers hold court in this bar, they face tight competition during Raiders games. The diverse menu includes Tex-Mex and Korean delicacies, and there is also a basketball hoop to get in some physical action in between games.
4. Gaslamp Tavern
This 5th Avenue bar is quickly becoming a landmark of the Gaslamp District. The third floor of this elegant bar offers a great view of the neighborhood, but the football action mostly takes place downstairs. Aside from Chargers fans, the Gaslamp Tavern also attracts UFC fans on fight nights.
5. Triple Crown Pub
This affordable neighborhood bar is located in the northern district of San Diego on Adams Avenue, and it features a very laid-back atmosphere for Chargers and Aztecs fans. At a time when interactive touchscreens are being installed in bar booths across Southern California, the Triple Crown Pub offers real Ping-Pong and pool tables as well as shuffleboard tables and darts.
