Selwyn Pub

#1 Best Overall Sports Bar

Old School Myers Park bar with a mix of bankers and frat stars. Order a transfusion to start and then settle back into the cavernous outside bench seating to watch the game.

Heard this is the spot (back left area) at Selwyn Pub where Michael Jordan hangs out

Duckworth’s Uptown

#2 Best Overall Sports Bar

This massive Uptown sports bar has a mind-boggling number of TVs. Still thirsty after the game? Head downstairs to The Cellar at Duckworth’s for a speakeasy vibe and cocktail.

Dilworth Neighborhood Grille

Casual sports bar with a spacious patio and roll-up garage doors for an indoor/outdoor setting. It’s a major game day destination where fans pack in to rally before home games (just down the street from Bank of America stadium) or watch away games.


Dilworth neighborhood staple. Be prepared for a lot of Buffalo Bills fans. And order the wings of course.


Old school spot on Montford. And so many regulars. Don’t forget, they’ve also got a chill rooftop seating area if you need to take a break from watching the game. Order the wings.

Graham Street Pub

This casual, new rooftop bar is located between BB&T Ballpark and Bank of America Stadium.

Indoor bar at Graham Street Pub. 

All American Pub

This South End spot will be packed with young people looking to have a Sunday Funday. Located right on the light rail and not far from Bank of America stadium, it’s the perfect spot to rally with fellow Panthers fans.

Angry Ale’s

This newly renovated bar on Montford has a sprawling patio that’ll make you want to drink Bud Light Buckets all day long. If you’re not a bucket person, order their signature 32-ounce B.A.C.s (Big Ass Cups) of beer — just $4 on Thursdays.



Start things off with the Bloody Mary bar and switch from inside to outside at this classic Montford spot. I love the chill back patio and the fact that there are three distinct areas to watch games.

Queen Park Social

Although not really a true sports bar, this social house near OMB has become a go-to destination for casual fans that want to party just as much as they want to watch the game.

Ed’s Tavern

Classic neighborhood hangout with plenty of TVs and a spacious patio.

Providence Road Sundries

Old school neighborhood restaurant and bar serving Charlotte since 1933. The family-friendly spot (yes, there’s a kids menu) knows parents need a bar escape, too — even with little ones in tow.
