Good Brewy Fun on LA’s Eastside

Just over two miles away from Dodger Stadium, hipster-ish Good Microbrew is perfect for any sports fan who desires multi-angle sports viewing without having to strain their neck to glance at the TV. There are well over a dozen of flat screens strategically anchored in this Silverlake establishment. The game day gastropub is a major convivial joint of brew chugging and comfort food munching. Menu suggestion: a mouthwatering Kwak beer and a gooey mac and cheese burger with a side of dressed-up tater tots.

Good Microbrew, 3725 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, USA, +1 323 660 3645

Dodgers Dive

Short Stop is a local Dodger fan favorite. Despite its somewhat seedy look and aspects of its history, the Echo Park neighborhood dive is a safe, welcoming place. Its proximity to Dodger Stadium is the main selling point here along with an inexpensive bar menu, featuring many beers and mixed drinks. With anticipation of watching Major League Baseball’s ‘Blue Crew,’ visit during Happy Hour to grab a good seat.

Sports Cozy Lux Style By Staples

For those seeking to lounge in luxury during the Laker game, The Mixing Room is the ideal retreat. Far from the run-of-the-mill, Hooters-like sports bar, this place is sports swank at its best. Patrons here prefer to root for Kobe Bryant and the Laker crew with Kobe beef burgers and martinis. Located within JWMarriott Hotel, the intimate hangout is for sports fans who seek a refined ambiance.

The Mixing Room, 900 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, USA, +1 213 765 8600

Down Under in Downtown

Weiland Brewery Underground is a spacious underground hangout prime for the Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers, Kings, USC, UCLA or whichever LA team game of choice. Daytime folks catch up on sports highlights on ESPN here, while evening revelers enjoy the game.

Convivial Vibe at Casey’s Irish Pub

With room to stretch and argue game calls freely, Casey’s packs in sports fans daily for a festive communal experience. In the heart of LA’s financial district, the super-sized bar attracts a diverse crowd for games. Plenty of TVs are placed throughout the space, which is situated in a one story building. Beyond the screens, there is fierce competition played out by gamers at billiard tables and dart tables. Regarding the menu, the pub is prime not only for Guinness but dozens of whiskey options. The food is, as one might expect, quintessentially Irish-American. Indulge in hearty servings of bangers, fish and chips, savory pies or burgers.

Casey’s Irish Pub, 613 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA, USA, +1 213 629 2353
