4 | Henry’s Sports Bar & Grill

This neighborhood bar and grill is home to great food and a stellar selection of craft beer, tequilas and spirits. Sip on your drink of choice this Sunday while taking in a full slate of games, singing karaoke or dancing the night away. Henry’s features a lineup of local DJs, so this is also a great nighttime spot if you’re looking to carry on the festivities after the teams head off the field. Be sure to take advantage of their new happy hour menu that features over 11 different types of wings.

Local Insight: Henry’s Sports Bar & Grill has a new happy hour from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, along with 23 beers on tap!

Location: Cathedral City

We try our level best to make Henry’s the best place to watch the games with multiple big screens, premium sound system, delicious food, and exceptional service. Being familiar with the competition, I think we are the number one place for football in the valley. We hope that you agree as well.

There’s no local NFL team in Palm Springs, but you can enjoy locally brewed beer at the award-winning La Quinta Brewing Co. All three of their valley taprooms will have the action on their HDTVs. Snack on pub favorites like the fish and chips, tuna wrap or southwest cobb salad as you watch your favorite teams face off. There’s no better place to sip and cheer on your favorite team!

Locations: Palm Desert, La Quinta, Palm Springs


7 | Revel Public House

While many pubs tend to cut corners in terms of quality, Palm Springs’ Revel Public House does just the opposite. Instead of using cheap and easy low-grade ingredients, this restaurant and bar takes pride in serving burgers made with grass-fed beef, locally sourced produce and free-range and organic eggs. Belly up to the bar to catch a game and rest easy knowing your food is pub grub that’s well above average.
