The Best Sports Bars in Orlando
Written by Stephen Tiliki
There is not much that can match the feeling of watching your favorite team with like-minded people, cheering at the top of your lungs.
Orlando has several different bars that broadcast just about every game imaginable, making it easy to find a place to watch the next big game, match, fight or race with your friends.
Here's a list of our favorite sports bars in the Orlando area
NBC Sports Grill & Brew at Universal CityWalk
An evening of sports-filled fun awaits at NBC Sports Grill & Brew, located within the Universal Orlando Resort.
The bar and lounge have nearly 100 huge HDTVs, as well as a fine selection of drafts and bottled beers and ciders. With all these amenities, this is the perfect spot for sports, dining, and fun.
We recommend starting with the Blue Cheese, White Queso, and Bacon Kettle Chips. You will love how the Grand Slam hamburger comes with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, onion rings, and BBQ ranch. This menu will provide you with your everyday favorites and some surprises.
The Pub Orlando
Enjoy a combination of American flair and British hospitality at The Pub Orlando, located just two blocks from the Orange County Convention.
A dynamic gastropub menu combines an extensive beverage menu with pub fare. The restaurant offers an array of small plates, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and classic pub dishes in addition to the signature fish & chips. Enjoy more tasty treats!
Choose from draught beers, handcrafted beers, or cask-conditioned styles with options originating from England, Ireland, Scotland, Europe, and the United States. A pour-your-own-beer wall is available in the Pub at Pointe Orlando, offering guests a more interactive experience. Also available are single malt scotches, small-batch bourbons, single barrel whiskeys, wines, and specialty cocktails. The authentic British pub ambiance and active service make this a unique and memorable experience and a great place to catch the game.
Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs
Stop by Splitsville Luxury Lanes while you're in the dining hub of Disney Springs to watch the game. The restaurant not only boasts more than 70 flat-screen TVs but also offers bowling lanes, billiards tables, live music, and a menu that's fun for the whole family.
A 50,000 sq. foot space with indoor and outdoor bars makes it an excellent place for watching football or other major sporting events. Explore Disney Springs, a mega dining and entertainment complex before and after the game.
Main Event Entertainment
Those who are searching for fun and entertainment should visit Main Event Entertainment. Sports fans can watch games on 61 giant screens in this expansive venue located inside Pointe Orlando shopping center.
In addition to bowling, virtual laser tag, billiards, and interactive and virtual video games, you can enjoy an expansive menu and a long list of inspired cocktails, beer and wine. The menu at this American restaurant includes a wide selection of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and pizzas. It's hard to go wrong with Skillet Mac n Cheese and Main Event Burger, and if you've got a sweet tooth, don't miss out on the Big Fun Super Sundae.
