Scoreboard Bar & Grill: Open since 1996, this bar and grill across from the Opryland Hotel is most known for smoked barbecue and hot chicken — but it’s also a popular place to watch football.
Party Fowl Donelson: The Donelson outpost of the hot chicken-joint-meets-sports bar boasts a whopping 46 TVs and six sound zones.
Corner Pub Downtown: Corner Pub downtown features big screens galore — capped off by a massive 48-foot LED video wall. The large Vegas-style bar offers 48 draft beers, which pair well with football, wings, nachos, and cheese fries.
DawgHouse Saloon: Crimson Tide fans convene at the Music Row bar that calls itself “a music row venue with a sports addiction.” It’s possible to see a TV screen from every single chair in the bar — so there’s not a bad seat in the house.
South Side Kitchen & Pub: South Side Kitchen & Pub on Nolensville Pike has become a go-to neighborhood pub. It serves standard bar appetizers, salads, burgers, and entrees like fish and chips and chicken pot pie, but all are high-quality — don’t miss the nachos, an ideal gameday food.
Crow's Nest: Green Hills' Crow's Nest is a two-story restaurant/bar packed with TV screens and plenty of seating. There’s loads of beer on tap, plus a solid bar food situation involving house-made pizza rolls, pickle chips, and pulled pork sliders.
Nashville Underground: If bone-in Nashville hot chicken, BBQ, bowling, and Broadway are on the to-do list, it’s possible to do it all while also cheering on that favorite team. Nashville Underground, owned by brothers Joey and Gavin DeGraw, is a 55,000-square-foot, four-story bar and restaurant offering NFL Sunday ticket, playing featured games on the massive LED floor screen that otherwise poses as a dance floor.
Bringle’s Smoking Oasis: Pitmaster Carey Bringle took his meat mastery to the Nations, this time dabbling in Texas-style barbecue (and real deal pastrami). The food is excellent, but the indoor/outdoor spot is also prime for dog-friendly dining and game day too.
