Whether it's football, hockey, basketball, baseball, soccer, or any other game, Pasadena sports bars promise a roaring good time with a sports-obsessed fanbase. Enjoy the quality food and craft beers on tap in a city that knows how important game day is. After all, Pasadena is home to the "Granddaddy of Them All." Here are some of the best sports bars to catch the nail-biting action and high-stakes matches in Pasadena.

Lucky Baldwin's

Founded in 1996 in the alleyways of Old Pasadena, Lucky Baldwin's ensures plenty of flat screen TVs within your sightline in a British pub atmosphere. Come for the impressive tap-list with over 60 beers on rotating taps and see why Lucky Baldwin's is one of the "old guard" of LA beer bars. Enjoy British pub bites such as bangers and mash, fish and chips, or a hefty burger, and spend the afternoon catching the game with local fans. Expect heavy crowds on game days, so show up as early as possible.

King's Row Gastropub

With wings, fries, and some of the best bar food in Old Pasadena, King's Row Gastropub balances a relaxed sports-bar ambiance with some serious food. Filling up on carbs has never been so fun - sink your teeth into the Cluck Norris Chicken Burger or their award-winning Creekstone Farms cheeseburger, and don't forget to grab a side of wings for the table. Enjoy local craft brews or enjoy cocktails made with house-pressed juices and syrups. We should mention that King's Row is the Official Bar Partner of the LAFC, so drop by and meet some die-hard fans.

Barney's Beanery

Bright, colorful, and entertaining, Barney's Beanery has it all. From arcade games to pool tables and an entire bus inside the bar, there's plenty to keep you occupied during the game and commercials. This full-service bar/restaurant is an LA classic and a Route 66 Roadhouse with 40 beers on draft. Don't worry about missing the game - there are over 100 hi-definition televisions. Legend has it, Marilyn Monroe's favorite was the chili, and Janis Joplin famously spent an evening at the original location just before her death. Great for large groups.

Rocco's Tavern

Rocco's is an open-air style bar with a lot of hustle and bustle, great for a rousing game day. Watch the game here, and it's almost a guarantee there will be plenty of cheering and lots of toasts from your team. The tavern is surrounded by television screens, so you won't even have to turn your neck to catch the field goal, winning dunk, or nail-biting ties.

Congregation Ale House

At Congregation Ale House, you can bring your dog to the game! The bar offers indoor and outdoor seating, and the patio is also dog-friendly, which means you can both enjoy an exciting game of ball.

Hot Wings Cafe

Clean, modern, with great bar food and plenty of large screens that can be seen from anywhere inside, Hot Wings Cafe is the ideal spot for those looking for a quieter place to watch the game and socialize without having to spend the evening shouting across the table.

T. Boyle's Tavern

Away from the downtown area with plenty of parking, T. Boyle's Tavern in the Playhouse Village is a vibe of its own. Pulling open the massive wooden door and stepping down into the tavern is like being transported back in time.
