Grab a cold one and cheer on the Cards, Blues, Battlehawks, or City SC to victory.

St. Louis is, undoubtedly, a sports town. The city’s culture is cultivated, in part, by St. Louisans’ unwavering support for their hometown teams: the mainstay baseball and hockey teams, the Cardinals and Blues, respectively, as well as the newer Battlehawks XFL team and St. Louis City Soccer Club.

Although seeing the winning goal, home run or touchdown in a stadium is an unparalleled experience, watching a game in a bar along with other diehard fans is just as electric. Grab a stool or a booth with friends, chug a beer and cheer on STL teams at these four bars.

Armory STL

This space has been everything from a former Missouri National Guard Infantry, to an athletic complex, to a concert venue. Now,Armory STL somewhat emulates all of its past concepts in its current iteration of the Midwest’s largest entertainment spaces. With six bars, over 70 tap handles and dozens of TV screens, this is the perfect place to watch any game.

The Pitch

Built to celebrate The Lou’s MLS team, St. Louis City SC, this pub-style bar encapsulates the international roots of St. Louis’ new soccer ecosystem.

Maggie O’Brien’s

After a long day of activities with the family at the St. Louis Aquarium, you deserve a drink. Just across the street from Union Station, head to Maggie O’Brien’s to catch a game and feast on Irish-pub eats.

Ballpark Village

Technically this isn’t a bar, but to not discuss this game-day hotspot would be criminal. Ballpark Village opened adjacent to Busch Stadium in 2014 and has become synonymous with premier dining, entertainment, business and leisure. Bars include Bally Sports Live!, Budweiser Brewhouse, Cardinals Nation and Sports & Social St. Louis.
