sports-barBack by pork-ular demand, The Rose & Crown Pub in Heritage & Science Park invites football fans to attend its 2013 NFL kickoff party, which features freshly spitted all-you-can eat rib roast and two (2) local drafts (Four Peaks, Sleepy Dog, Mother Road, etc.) for just $25. Feed your face while chatting up the staff and catching all the hard-hitting action on the tellys. Games start at 10 a.m.!
Rose & Crown isn’t the only restaurant getting in the game. In fact, there’s no shortage of HD TVs, food or drink in Downtown Phoenix. Here are a few of the other establishments eager to meet all of your football needs.
The Turf
Football and wine aren’t often paired but The Turf is changing that. In addition to carrying all the NFL games, Turf will be participating in Taste of the NFL, an initiative that benefits local food shelves in NFL markets across the country. Anytime NFL football is on, Turf will feature Alamos Red Blend, Willis Hill Chardonnay and Edna Valley Sauvignon Blanc–all at discounted pours.
Tom’s Tavern
Where better to watch our Cardinals destroy the division rival Rams this Sunday than at Tom’s Tavern? Tom’s is owned by the First Family of Arizona Football, the Bidwills, so you know the game will be on.
Lucky Strike & Gypsy Bar
Fancy yourself a multi-tasker? Why watch the NFL from your sofa when you can gaze upon giant projection screens while rolling a few games with the family at Lucky Strike? Or maybe head over to Gypsy Bar and play some games while watching the games. Can’t lose.

The new kids on Downtown’s sports bar block aren’t new at all; they owned Coach & Willie’s for years and know how to feed football fans, including some bodacious burgers [pictured] and, for fans watching their waistband, sensational salads.
Copper Blues
Numbers-wise, what Copper Blues lacks in large-screen TVs they more than make up for in beers on tap and fedoras.
Thunder Dan’s crew serve up some of the tastiest (and hottest) chicken wings in Phoenix. Better yet, cool your tongue with a Majerle Mojito.
Tilted Kilt
This CityScape sports paradise has everything a growing football fan needs. College football fans take special note that you can play Tilted Kilt’s College Pick ‘Em game for a chance at fabulous prizes.
Hooters has been playing host to Downtown football fans since opening in Arizona Center back in the 90s. Wings, wet naps, Wi-Fi to check on your fantasy team … it’s all at Hooters.
Most importantly, if you’re going to cheer with a beer (or five) make sure you do so responsibly. Discount Cab (602) 200-2000 is a phone call away and win or lose they’d love to get you home safely.
