The Best Chapel Hill Sports Bars for Game Day

When you’re watching your favorite sports team, there’s nothing better than chowing down on some game day grub. Thankfully, several sports bars around Chapel Hill offer the best spots for watching the big game. Check out the best sports bars near our Chapel Hill apartments:

Four Corners

Nestled on Franklin Street, Four Corners honors one of the greatest coaches in college sports history. UNC memorabilia hangs throughout, and the bar is known for capturing the “Carolina spirit.” In terms of their food, the chefs proudly serve homemade dishes. They only use fresh ingredients and source locally whenever possible. The menu includes Philly cheesesteaks, fish and chips, and garlic lemon pepper wings.

Might As Well Bar & Grill

Regarded by many as one of Chapel Hill’s best sports bars, Might as Well is a favorite among late-night diners. While it’s known for its drink specials, Might As Well also offers a food menu full of flavorful dishes. Customer favorites include the buffalo chicken dip, mac n’ cheeseburgers, and vegan pie pizza.

Rookies Sports Bar

Founded on a love of sports, Rookies offers some of the best game day food around. However, this local spot isn’t just slinging your average greasy food. Instead, Rookies offers farm-fresh vegetables, as well as freshly baked bread. The menu includes French dip sandwiches, the “old South burger,” and “Major League burritos.” Round out your meal with an order of onion rings, or Rookies nachos. The bar is currently open daily 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
