Whether you enjoy watching baseball, basketball, ice hockey, football, soccer, tennis, or all of the above, one thing typically remains consistent among all types of sports fans: the energy that generates from being encircled by a crowd of like-minded fans. There’s nothing quite like rooting for your favorite sports team alongside friends and complete strangers alike as you collectively hoot, holler, and shout for them to take home the gold. Add delicious grub and alcoholic beverages into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a party.
In honor of such a special experience, we decided to call up our friends at Yelp to help determine the best sports bar in every state so that you know exactly where the most treasured place to catch a game in your home state resides.
ALABAMA: Paramount Bar in Birmingham
According to Yelp’s algorithm, Paramount Bar is the best sports bar in all of Alabama. Why? Not only does this bar allow you to catch your favorite team playing on the big screen, but it’s also equipped with plenty of arcade games, including The Simpsons, Aerosmith Pinball, and Skeeball.
A few reviewers on Yelp also raved about the wings, especially the rosemary, lemon, and pecorino flavors, with bleu cheese and ranch dipping sauces.
