You cheer on the Cardinals from the stadium, but where do you head when you can’t attend the game? Find your new favorite sports bar at one of these Downtown destinations.

Ballpark Village

Looking to celebrate your favorite team outside of the stadium? No place is a better fit than Downtown’s Ballpark Village and its 10 bars. Stop by Cardinal Nation’s two-story restaurant and bar for specialties like the the Turkey Cuban Panini or the Home Team Pork Steak with Asian coleslaw. Or, try FOX Sports Midwest Live! to enjoy the game on its 40-foot LED screen while you munch on hot wings and toasted ravs. The Ballpark Village phase two expansion is set to open in 2019 and bring 700,000 square feet of mixed-use space.

Flannery’s Pub

With the tagline “Your Neighborhood Pub for Sports and Spirits,” Flannery’s Pub is a great place to watch the Red Birds or head over for after-work happy hour. While you watch the game, grab a hearty meal like the Guinness Shepherd’s Pie, Irish Slinger or the Veggie Hash.

1320 Washington Ave.

The Wheelhouse

Located next to the stadium, The Wheelhouse features two bars, an expansive patio and a myriad of 37-inch flat screen televisions perfect for watching the game. Come by for brunch and try the one of the specialties like Chilaquiles Chimi or peanut butter-bacon-chocolate waffles. Wanting to dine during a later game? The expansive lunch and dinner menu includes six mac and cheese options, plus a variety of sandwiches, wraps and burgers.
