Eat and drink well
Charleston Sports Pub
West Ashley bar Charleston Sports Pub offers creative takes on pub fare in a relaxed setting with $2 domestic beers during happy hour and plenty of craft on draft. The kitchen also has a burger topped with eight ounces of macaroni and cheese, in case customers want some extreme eats. Bonus: there’s also locations in Summerville, Goose Creek, and Mount Pleasant.
Crowds pack in tight to watch the games at Avondale establishment the Roost. There’s plenty of wings, burgers, and fried things on the menu to keep most sports fans happy.
Moe's Crosstown Tavern
Moe’s Crosstown consistently puts out some of the best bar food around, and its burgers are always counted as some of the best in town. There also happens to be plenty of televisions on which to catch all the games. Oh, and beer. Lots of beer.
Local 616 makes for a super relaxed spot to watch any game. Owner Dwayne Mitchell will mix up plenty of cocktails for guests or pour a few beers. There’s also a back patio for those who need to chill out in between the action.
