While football season may have come to an abrupt halt (better luck next year, Texans), rejoice fans because one of the best months for sports is here. March means NBA and NHL playoffs, spring training, and best of all, March Madness. Whether your preferred team scores with hoops, balls, or pucks, here are all the best places to catch that exciting buzzer-beater action in Beaumont.
Kampus Korner Restaurant
Always popular with Lamar students, Kampus Korner has been a college hangout for 30+ years and multiple generations of grads. They get especially busy on game days, so come early to stake a seat on one of the coveted couches. If you work up an appetite from excessive cheering, they have all the standard fried goodness you may crave, but it’s the gyro plate that’s the real crowd-pleaser.
Dylan's Bar and Grill
With tons of TVs and dark wood interiors, Dylan’s is your classic local watering hole. Beyond a place to shack up and watch sports, they (often) have live music, a killer patio, tons of pool tables, and food and drink deals like .60 cent wings. You know what they say -- you can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning.
Buffalo Wild Wings
B-Dubs, as it’s affectionately known to regulars, is universally recognized as the place to get messy and watch a game. The franchise has made a name for itself by offering cravable bar bites and meats doused in over 20 different sauces. Great for groups, grab your crew and share a sampler platter of wings and things. As an extra bonus, they also have free to play sports gaming where you can win everything from food for a year to trips to major sporting events.
Madison's on Dowlen
One of Beaumont’s biggest sports bars, Madison’s is both a great place to day drink while cheering on your favorite team and a late-night spot to continue the celebrate or drown your sorrows. There are multiple TVs for any obscure team you may be rooting for and a large, pet-friendly patio.
Fast Eddie’s Billiards
If you like gaming while you watch the big game, Fast Eddie’s is so much more than just a pool hall. There’s darts, foosball, life-sized beer pong, ping pong, and giant Jenga to challenge your agility and skill. Whether you make the game center stage or simply background noise, it’s a great spot for the ADD generation who like to stay busy and get a little friendly competition going.
With distractions like firepits and patio swings, it’s easy to forget that Little Woodrow’s was first and foremost a sports bar. They’ll be showing all the college hoops games this month plus sneaking in a few fight nights and other matches. And if you haven’t tried a Topo Chico Cooler yet, what are you waiting for?
5 Under Golf Center
Beaumont’s newest entertainment venue, 5 Under, is a Top Golf affiliate that allows you to play its immersive high-tech gaming system by the hour. Rent a bay and swing away or stick to the lounge/bar area, which is outfitted with plenty of HDTVs and a full menu of high quality eats and drinks.
