The Stanley Cup starts Monday evening. The NBA Championship series will start soon after. Seasoned sports fans may already have their go-to spots for viewing but for those who START watching hockey and basketball at this time of year, here are some places I like:
Fields Bar & Grill – Located in the Pearl District, it’s got lots of TVs and great happy hour food that includes avocado fries.
Yur’s – Famously stiff drinks and affordable. Kinda dive-y in that Old Portland charming way. Big. Comfortable.
Belmont Inn – Friendliest staff in town, cheap drinks all the time, a delicious vegan burger, multiple varieties of fries, and pool tables for halftime.
Blitz Ladd- Huge space with lots of HD TVs and they’re very accommodating for large parties.
Bucket Brigade – Dive-y and fun with the coldest beer in town.
Reverend’s BBQ – (Pictured) – Great if you want BBQ with a side of sports. This spot is a great addition to Sellwood and the Sazerac (cocktail) is not to be missed!
