If the Rangers, Mavericks, or Cowboys happen to have an away game when you come to Irving, don’t despair. Head over to one of the many sports bars in town for delicious pub grub, cold drinks, and massive screens.
Started in America’s heartland, Champps Sports Bar embodies the comfort and joy of enjoying a day with family and friends over a shared love of sports. With tons of screens, Champps is always tuned to the game you want to see. The bar’s craft beer and creative cocktails are sure to delight your whole crew as you unwind and watch your favorite teams. Champps also features events throughout the year, like special beer and food menus for your fantasy football league, so be sure to check to see what might be in store for your next game day. And don’t miss out on savory bites like jumbo chicken wings that go perfectly with a cold beer.
Another option is Spirit Grille. The sports bar features multiple DTV sports packages broadcasting across 15 TVs and six big screens, ensuring you won’t miss any of the action. But don’t just come to watch the game—you can play a game, too. Spirit Grille hosts trivia nights, Texas Hold ‘Em Poker tournaments, and has a game room full of everyone’s favorites. Once you’ve worked up an appetite from winning, sit down to a steaming plate of Signature Spirit Wings or sink your teeth into the Sandbagger, a savory bacon cheeseburger. Don’t forget to wash it all down with an ice-cold brew.
For a tried and true option, head to Chili’s Bar and Grill to unwind and catch the game. With two locations in Irving, you’re never far from the comfortable bar and familiar menu of this American classic. If you’re just getting off a flight, head to the Chili’s on Airport Freeway, or, if you’re finishing up a long day of meetings at the Convention Center, go to the Las Colinas location. Both feature draft brews and generous margaritas, familiar Chili’s dishes, such as Chicken Crispers or Cajun Chicken Pasta, and indulgent desserts like molten chocolate cake. And, as with any Chili’s, there are plenty of TVs to watch a game.
With an extensive range of brew options, 54th Street Restaurant & Draft House has everything you need to enjoy game day, including tasty nibbles—like fried pickles and super nachos—to enjoy with your brew. If you’re riding high after your team wins, stay for a fresh meal made from the highest quality ingredients. Try out the famous spicy Rattlesnake Pasta with chicken or go with a standard like a steak and shrimp platter. And don’t forget to add a little sweetness to game day with a decadent dessert like the cinnamon apple crisp.
To experience every kind of food a sports bar might possibly have, Boston’s Pizza is the place to go. Along with a wide variety of gourmet pizza creations, including thin crust, flatbread, and calzone options, the restaurant menu has pasta, burgers, wings, sandwiches, tacos, ribs, and much more. On top of that, those who like their sports bar with cocktail options will love the dozens of top-shelf creations and seven different margaritas. Beer and wine fans still have plenty of choices as well. The many drinks and menu items are complemented by the many TVs everywhere you look. There’s even screens on the covered patio if you’d like to take in your game al fresco.
Whether its football season or time for the World Series, there are plenty of sports bars in Irving to root for your team with a bucket of beers and some good friends.
