It’s the Citgo sign of sports bars. A legendary Fenway hangout, the Cask is housed on a busy corner in the shadow of the Green Monster. Multi-generational groups of Sox fans pack the sprawling interior alongside fair-weather college kids and curious out-of-towners. Upscale bar snacks share table space with classic fried treats, and a lengthy beer list ensures there’s something for every taste. During the warmer-weather months, the sidewalk patio is a must for people-watching before or after a game.
Bostonians love their sports, and we especially love our local teams, all of which have won championships this century. (Something no other city can claim.) Therefore, of all the fantastic things to do in Boston, catching one of the local teams playing a big game has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. And while Fenway Park is without a doubt one of the top Boston attractions for anyone visiting or living in the city, a trip to one of the best Irish pubs in Boston to watch a big game is its own special experience. If good beer, lively company, and lots of screens sounds like a good time, then be sure to hit one of the best sports bars Boston has to offer.
