American Football

The New England Patriots will face the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs on 13 January at Gillette Stadium. Here are 10 sports bars in the area and 10 other parts of the country where you can root for the Pats.

James White is expected to play as the first-seeded New England Patriots take on the fifth-seeded Tennessee Titans at home in their bid to make a repeat visit to the Super Bowl.

There will be an 89% chance of rain on game day with an estimated high of 44 degrees and gusts of up to 15 miles per hour.

Tickets and scarce and costly. With weather conditions like this, you might want to watch the game in the comfy confines of a well-heated sports bar in the company like other Patriots fans.

Sports Bars Friendly to New England Patriots Fans 

Boston, Massachusetts, is home to a large community of Irish Americans, and many of them have settled in other parts of the United States. And many of them continue to be loyal to their hometown’s football team, the New England Patriots.

For this reason, Patriots games are likely to be aired in most Irish pubs – not only in Boston itself, in the rest of New England, and in other parts of the United States, but in Ireland, as well.

According to Sports Illustrated, The Four’s in Boston, Massachusetts, is the Number One sports bar in the United States.

The Four’s is a favoured hangout – not only for sports fans, journalists and even athletes also like to hang out at the popular sports bar!

Because the New England Patriots have a national fan base, I’ve doubled the number of listed bars, with two listings: one for New England and another for the rest of the country.

  1. The last time I was in Sonny McLean’s I was so disappointed. The owners sold to an Aussie who loves Boston – but I just don’t think “gets it.” The menu was totally changed, the server thought haddock was a beer, and whole belly Ipswich clams aren’t even on the menu as an entrée any more (you can ask).
    ALL the memorabilia was gone – even the podium where the World Series trophy once sat, that I use to touch like an altar when I would come in.
    I’ve never been back. Sonny McLean’s once upon a time was probably the best all things Boston sports bar outside of eastern Mass – now it’s a sham.


  2. You’ve left out a bar in Seattle that is packed with Patriots fans (50 to 100) for every game. It’s called Spitfire (2219 4th Ave., Seattle, WA 98121. The Boston Sports Fan Group of Seattle meets there for all Patriots games as well as for other Boston sports. We take over the whole back room there. It’s not a “Boston bar” per se, but they have bent over backwards to welcome Patriots fans since 2007. Please include it on your list.
    Also if anyone in the Seattle area who would like to connect with the big Boston fan group there, we can be found on Facebook –
