It’s the most wonderful time of the year! NFL is back, and that means ceasar Sundays with Erin Andrews on the sidelines, nachos, and an excuse to stay in your sweats all day and still feel like you’ve accomplished something. While Canada may be synonymous with ice hockey, I’ve noticed a shift in the local fanbase here in Vancouver.  The NFL has a huge following, with more and more people jumping on the Seahawks bandwagon. If you look around at a bar on a Sunday in Vancouver, you are sure to see people furiously refreshing their fantasy football apps and trying to eat their way out of a hangover.

Read on for the best places to watch NFL in Vancouver with sound!

Charles Bar

In the heart of Gastown, Charles Bar is my go-to for football Sunday. Their bar is adorned with 9 flat screen TV’s, and they always have 5 different games playing in the mornings. It’s perfect for narcotically keeping up with all your fantasy players and shouting at the TV when the quarterback passes to your opponent’s receiver. This is also my favorite place to watch a Seahawks game in Vancouver.

Local

Ahh, Local. A staple in Vancouver. While most flock during the summer months to take advantage of the patio, Local has some serious charm in the winter months. The energy is infectious, so I wouldn’t count on being able to hear much of the commentary. Rumour has it another Local is opening where Chill Winston used to be, and I have a feeling it will be even cozier than it’s predecessor!

Order the fish tacos and a caesar in a boot!

Lost a bet…Guy behind me isn’t impressed with my attire. Also whyyy is my caesar not in a boot in this picture?! 

Phat

Phat has a special place in my heart. I have been going there for years, have watched the ownership change hands and seen it evolve into a local watering hole for Yaletown dwellers and beyond. The owners are such great people with good energy, and most importantly they are genuine sports fans.

If you’re looking for a fun, lively yet intimate place to watch NFL in Vancouver, look no further. Another bonus: TV’s on the patio! I love frequenting Phat in September and October when the weather is still nice.

Sports Bar

Brand new and overlooking Rogers Arena, this bar feels like something you’d seen in a big American city next to a football stadium. There are TV’s everywhere. It’s fairly dark with no windows, so it’s great for a rainy day of sportsing’ .. which reminds me of my favorite meme ever:

Donnelly Pubs – Lamplighter, New Oxford & Library Square

Chairs at New Oxford NFL Sunday Vancouver

I used to visit Donnelly Pubs a lot more in my college years, drinking vodka soda’s with a splash of that horrific fake lime juice until the wee hours of the morning. While I haven’t done that in quite some time, I was surprised to find out the Donnelly group restaurants have a pretty decent set up for football. I think what impressed me the most was the ability for them to clean up in a mere few hours to get ready for a Sunday morning open.

If you ever need to question humanity, just look in the women’s washroom at a bar at 3am. Unless you’re a dude. Don’t be creepy.

Anyways, Donnelly pubs are some of the only bars in Vancouver that play games with sound. These pubs are great for large groups as they don’t get as crowded as the three places I listed above.

Colony Main

Main Street ain’t what it used to be a few years ago. Mount Pleasant has attracted a ton of young locals to the area, giving Colony a great Sunday football vibe.

TV’s (with sound!!), comfort food, and a place where sweatpants and a toque are totally acceptable attire. I’m in. They also have a wide selection of craft beers on tap, which comes in handy when you need to drown your sorrows after losing your fantasy match-up by 1 point. Speaking from experience….

The Score

I’ll just leave this here. Enough said.

There ya go! Now you know my favorite places to watch NFL in Vancouver with sound. If you’re ever looking for me on a Sunday, I’ll probably be at one of these establishments drinking a caesar, and trying to sneak a peak at my celebrity crush, Pete Carroll. Come say hi!

Pin for later!
