Autumn is here, and millions of eyes are turning to the television on Saturdays and Sundays for some excitement on the gridiron. For big screens and electric atmospheres, here are some of the best places to watch football in Brooklyn.

Union Grounds

The product of two friends who couldn’t find a decent bar in Downtown Brooklyn with expansive viewing options, Union Grounds prides itself on playing any game a customer asks for. Not far from Nu Hotel, they have flat screens lining the walls and knockout buffalo wings.


Woodwork is the leading fútbol bar in all of Brooklyn. Playing a bunch of soccer matches throughout a given day, it also opens its doors to the NFL for some American football. Multiple televisions and fun cocktails like a fireball whiskey hot toddy make this an easy spot to catch a game.

The Grand National

Located in trendy Williamsburg, the Grand National is hands down one of the best places to watch sports in Brooklyn. Barely a year old, the bar has ten 70-inch HD TV’s hanging on the walls broadcasting the top games on any given day.

The Montrose

This scotch whiskey haven doubles as a sports bar right around the corner from the Barclays Center. In addition to a rotating tap of 16 beers and a wall covered with bottles straight from Scotland, several televisions and a knockout house burger make this one of the best spots in BK to catch a game.

200 Fifth

More televisions playing as many different games as they can, 200 Fifth offers as good a watching experience as any sports bar in Brooklyn. It has an extensive pub-inspired menu with several different kinds of wings and burgers, and specials for football games like $25 Coors Light Supertubes.
