Calling all Carolina Hurricanes fans!  The Glenwood Carolina Ale House hosts the official watch parties for all away games. Join Caniacs for a cold beer and tasty shareables like fried wings and bacon cheese fries. And if it’s a really big game, check out the block watch party and you may see a famous guest (Hamilton the Pig) hanging around…

🗓 SUN—SAT | 11AM—2AM

📍 Downtown Raleigh
500 Glenwood Ave

📍 North Raleigh
4512 Falls of Neuse Rd

Looking to cheer on your fave team in North Hills? Visit Yard House! With a menu of great food and great drinks, this is the perfect spot for foodies! Plus, if you’re cheering your team on to victory in the afternoon, take advantage of Yard House’s happy hour menu. We recommend the Wisconsin fried cheese curds and the firecracker shrimp and pairing it with any of Yard Bird’s local drafts!

🗓 SUN—THURS | 11AM—11:30PM
🗓 FRI—SAT | 11AM—1AM

📍 4208 Six Forks Rd Suite C110

Right in the heart of Glenwood South is the self-dubbed classiest dive bar in Raleigh. Lucky B’s has the look of a beach bar, the feel of a sports bar, and the prices of a college bar. With plenty of TVs, including some outside on the patio, this is a sports lover’s paradise. And during timeouts, play pub games like darts or ski ball! Order a round of lemon drop shots at game time and get ready to party!

🗓 SAT | 1PM—2AM
🗓 SUN | 1PM—2AM

📍 609 Tucker St

Right down the street from NC State is a sports bar with wall-to-wall screens. If you’ve got multiple teams playing, this is definitely the spot for you. But be warned on NFL game days, Brickhouse becomes Patriots headquarters. Check out their daily drink specials and make sure you try the Pack plate, a combo of all the best apps!

🗓 FRI—SAT | 11AM—2AM
🗓 SUN | 11AM—11PM

📍 3801 Hillsborough St

Cheering on your fave team in a bar owned by former professional athletes? Yes, please! The vibes in here are electric when cheering on the local teams. The bar boasts an extensive drink list,  massive patios, multiple TVs, and a giant projection screen! During halftime, try your hand at pool, darts, or corn hole. Arrive early for big games to stake out your table because it will be busy! 

🗓 SAT—SUN | 12PM—2AM

📍 425 Glenwood Ave

Who’s ready for a footy match? The London Bridge Pub is THE place in Raleigh for all things soccer. The best part? If there are big matches the bar will open early—think 7AM—so you can grab a barstool to cheer your team on to victory. Snack on traditional English fare and wash it down with a Guinness or your choice of import. This place goes CRAZY during the World Cup! Be sure to check out their social media because for the biggest games (World Cup Finals, Euro Cup Finals, etc.), tickets will be available to monitor crowding. But don’t worry, attendees receive a free round!

🗓 MON—THURS | 11:30AM—12AM
🗓 FRI | 11:30AM—2AM
🗓 SAT | 9AM—2AM
🗓 SUN | 10AM—12AM

📍 110 E Hargett St

Located in the historic Powerhouse building downtown, Tobacco Road is a go-to spot for foodies and local beer lovers alike. We’re currently loving the down east nachos and the (s)hop Local Farmhouse farmhouse ale! We def recommend calling ahead to put your name on the list, especially if it’s a big game. With a local and fun vibe, this is definitely a great spot for friends to hang out and enjoy a beer over a good game!

🗓 FRI—SAT | 11AM—12AM

📍 505 W Jones St

Hey Wolfpack fans, we’ve got the perf place for you to watch the next big game! A Raleigh landmark since 1951, the PR is THE place to back the pack. With lots of tvs and fun themed menus items—like the Bill Walton veggie burger iykyk—nothing beats the vibes at The Player’s Retreat. 

🗓 SUN—MON | 11:30AM—12AM
