The Front Porch

Nick’s Place

Nick’s is home to one of the largest banks of TV's you’ll ever see in your life. A flat screen lover’s dream, you’ll find one covering almost every inch of wall space in the bar. Nick’s carries all major television providers, so just about any sport being played in the world is at your disposal.  However, the matrix of screens is only half the story. If you are looking for outstanding takes on Italian and gourmet pub fare, this is your place. You’ll love their standard Italian staples like baked zitti or fettuccine, but trying the Pizzadilla’s, and the Cabilnasian Calzone’s are a must. You will NEVER leave hungry.


Lucky's Pub
Lucky's is a wonderful place to watch any sports event, and if you're watching a Houston team, chances are you’re sitting only steps away from all of the action. Lucky's is nestled neatly in the heart of Eado (East Downtown) and is walking distance from Minute Maid Park, the New Dynamo Stadium, and right around the corner from the Toyota Center. The location is great, but the drink specials are even better, and with two rooms full of big screen TV's its never a challenge to find the game you want.


The Front Porch  

If your more of the outdoorsy type, and prefer to enjoy the warm Houston weather, you’ll love catching a game at The Front porch.  They have a huge outdoor deck area, 37 beers on tap, over 40 in the bottle, and a fantastic menu of burgers to go with your brew.

Mezzanine Lounge: This Upper Kirby sports bar has two floors and has a covered outdoor patio. With 30+ televisions scattered throughout, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Mezzanine Lounge offers a full bar and a menu that has typical bar food. Check their calendar for theme nights such as karaoke and trivia.
Big Woodrow’s: If fantastic food is a prerequisite for a great sports bar, then Big Woodrow’s is the best around. Specializing in Cajun food, this bar has a neighborhood feel to it. There is lots of outdoor seating, both covered and uncovered, as well as two levels of indoor tables. During football season, it’s as if Louisiana has come to Houston when LSU and the Saints are playing. Grab a bucket of beer and crawfish and settle in for the day.

Champps Americana: Located in the Galleria area, Champps is a chain and a bit more refined. The menu reads like a book and it has a full bar with specialty cocktails. This place has countless televisions showing most every sporting even available and offers more of restaurant feel.
