Best Sports Bar in E-Town

What is the best place to watch sports in Edmonton? The Oilers are easy, every bar will show every game with sounds on. I have that covered. But what about NFL? Which bars have the most TV's showing the most games? I was at the Shark club in Victoria last year and they had seven HD tv's above the bar showing 7 different games. We need that here! I don't want to go to a bar that is showing the one game I could watch at home, I am talking multiple tv's, with great views, showing as many games as possible all at once. Can anyone point me in the right direction??? If NHL doesn't start on time I have to find some way to fill the void!

Schanks is good and sounds like what you're looking for.

Diamonds Gentlemen Club

Oil [******] City

Transit Hotel Bar and Lounge

But in actuality, depending on your age and who you go with I'd say either the Pint, the Rack, any Hudsons and most Boston Pizzas.

It's hard to say what they'll do with football.

Hudson's always puts the sound on for Oiler games, but I've never been for an NHL game.

I would phone a few places and ask. Some of them may have contingency plans in place for football viewings this year...but I'm pretty sure the Brewhouse makes a big deal about Sunday and Monday night football, if that makes a difference for you.

Schanks is probably your best bet.

There used to be a shark club on the west end, did it shut down?

That place was awesome for football on sundays.

Agreed. Schanks has the best sized stuff by far but I love the atmosphere at the other places

I like Brewhouse off Ellerslie personally. Schanks is too damn far.

Brewhouse makes a big deal about football eh? I think maybe I will check them out. Shark club closed down, now it the twisted kilt, good place, but I have never been there for NFL football.

Mo's Sports Parlour circa 1992 to 2002 was probably the best Sports Bar the city ever had.
A virtual who's-who of Edmonton Sports/Business frequented the South Side location which can best be described as "rustic"
From Large "M" Millionaire's, to broadcasting powers like Wes Montgomery/Bryan Hall and Bruce Keynon, Mo's had it going on.
This was before NFL and NHL packages on digital TV and at a time when pretty much everybody drove home after 6-7 hour "shifts" watching NHL doubleheaders in the winter and most importantly NFL football on Sunday.
Let's establish. The food and for that matter the waitresses were at best average, but no one ever got cheated with a drink.
And if you wanted a little action Mo's was the place to be.
It was where men went to be boys again...lol!

That is exactly what I am looking for Stauff, a great place to pull a shift. We have a sports mad city of almost a million people, you would think we would be able to figure this one out.

What if I want a lot of action


For me I like to sit back at home and watch football. It's cheaper and I don't drink as much, which then leads to me being able to remember the games. There's something about me being a bar that I have to have a beer in my hands at all times. The other nice thing is at home you can watch what you want when you want.
