1030 S. Broadway • 859.554.6081 • KSBarandGrille.com
When the folks who bring us Kentucky Sports Radio announced that they were going to start a sports bar, there was never any doubt that every aspect of the joint was going to be catered to the fans. Plenty of TVs, ample seating, truly great food and a fantastic atmosphere make KSBar one of a kind. Their wings are great with tons of sauce options, or their Ultimate BBQ Sampler Platter (according to the menu, “even the ’96 team thinks this squad is loaded.) Best of all? It’s a short jaunt from Rupp Arena and Commonwealth Stadium, so it’s a hot spot before, during and after the game.
Locals’ Craft Food & Drink
701 National Ave. • 859.523.3249 • LocalsLex.com
Going out with someone who isn’t a fan of the ol’ sportsball? Locals is a fantastic neighborhood joint where everyone in your party will feel welcome on game night and every night. Great cocktails, delicious food and an atmosphere that doesn’t scream “sports bar” makes it a fantastic choice in the Warehouse Block area. Try the Sportsman sandwich, featuring craft beer battered white fish, Bibb lettuce, tomato slices and a cilantro lime mayo, or order some Lamb Chop Pops for the table.
World of Beer
122 Marion Ste. 150 • 859.919.2060 • WorldofBeer.com
As the name implies, World of Beer’s menu of both food and drinks spans the globe, with influences from all over. From tacos to schnitzel, caipiroskas to IPAs, this bar in The Summit has something for just about everyone. Their Black & Blue Flatbread features blackened steak, carmalized onions, caramelized mushrooms, mozzarella, Danish blue cheese, arugula and a sweet Balsamic glaze, or share their Beer Cheese Nachos, which you can top with Green Chicken Chili or their Signature Chili.
411 Southland Dr. • 859.275.1925 • MarikkasLex.com
Marikka’s bier garten is sure to get rowdy on game nights with plenty of tvs and a fun, casual beer hall vibe. Grab your choice of “wurst”, served on a brioche or pretzel bun, or der Uber Grosse Pretzel with German mustard and beer cheese. Pair it all with something from their impressive list of beers (and see if one of the volleyball courts is open for some extra fun).
1916 Justice Dr. • 859.963.4150 • DoubleDogs.biz
Double Dogs offers an energetic, fun sports bar experience in Hamburg. But best of all? Dogs are welcome on the patio. You and Fido can grab one of their specialty hot dogs or go all out with The Big John burger, featuring a toasted bun topped with a split Hebrew National hot dog, two black angus hamburger patties, their homemade beefy chili, American cheese, cheddar cheese, diced onion, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo and mustard. Bow wow!
