Situated right next to the Pantages Theatre, you’ll often find ticket holders hunkered down here for a beer and a bite to eat pre- and post-show. But it’s not just a place for theater buffs. If you’re a sports fan—so, you know, most of you—33 Taps is prime seating for watching your favorite match, game, fight, whatever you’re rooting for. Plenty of flat screen TVs are available to stare intently at while you choose from one of 33 beers on tap. If you’re feeling peckish, order one of the burgers with a side of their killer sweet potato fries. Watching the game eastward? There’s also a 33 Taps in Silver Lake.
L.A. sports bars are packed with fans ready to throw down for their team. With the right vibe—and plenty of TVs—the best bars have the power (and libations) to squash even the fiercest Lakers vs. Clippers battle. If swanky hotel bars or dressed-up cocktail bars are more of your thing, these fan-heavy watering holes may be a step in the wrong direction. But if you’re looking for a makeshift stadium, we’ve rounded up the city’s quality sports bars—some of which are on our list of the best beer bars—where you can grab a drink, enjoy bar food and cheer for your team.
