Looking for a go-to Charlotte sports bar to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday? Here are the 30 best sports bars in our city.

Streetcar Bar + Bites

Wesley Heights sports bar with a lively, pop art interior

Why we love it: It's your standard, lively sports bar, but decked out in pop art decor and graffiti. And as one of the newest additions to the Thrift Road boom in Wesley Heights, it's a short trip to the stadium.

Super Bowl special: $5 draft beer, $6 cheeseburger sliders, $1 wings and $5 buffalo chicken dip.

Tyber Creek

Irish pub with TVs inside and outside, upstairs and downstairs

Why we love it: Tyber Creek is a Kansas City Chiefs bar, so they’re going all out with a big screen and bar in a heated tent outside.

Of note: This South End staple will soon be torn down and built back up. It's last day in its current form will be Mar. 18.

Selwyn Pub

Laid-back Charlotte classic popular with the country club crowd in Myers Park

Why we love it: The frat-tastic bar in the heart of Charlotte’s wealthiest neighborhood knows exactly what it is and whom it appeals to.

Super Bowl special: $2.50 Miller Lite bottles, $6 transfusions, $10 18" pizzas (dine-in only).

What we’re drinking: Transfusions, of course. The dead simple mixed drink — vodka, ginger ale and a splash of grape juice — has been the same since the bar opened in 1990.
