Beach Castle Premium Cigars in Mary Ester Florida. Haven't caught a game there yet but talked to the owner and he is a Michigan fan as well.
When I first moved to Charlotte from Ann Arbor, the place to go for Michigan games was a bar in a non-descript strip mall far from the madding crowd of the city. But that location, Coach's, has long since been vacated for an uptown bar run by a very accommodating Michigan fan, owner of Tavern on the Tracks in a now trendy area.
It is a great place to watch a game. Unfortunately, every big game I've gone to there, Michigan has lost. The Rose Bowl to Texas, the game in 2006, even App State. So, I've just decided to watch at home and bypass the communal experience, even though there have been some memorable moments, when John Navarre and his mom showed up for the showdown with the Buckeyes, which Michigan lost. The night my son and I enjoyed tormenting my wife, a Spartan grad, when Henne and Braylon led Michigan on an incredible Halloween comeback versus MSU.
I have my season football tickets for sale. I can sell them individually or as a package.
Please email me at email@example.com and send me offers.
So I think I'm aware of the name of every NYC Michigan bar at this point along with various reviews on mgoblog and Yelp, but can any locals fill me in on which might be best to go to if I'm on my own and thus not making a table reservation (for the opener this weekend)? I don't mind a crowd that's into the game (have done multiple Mich. bars in Boston & Chicago) BUT it would be awesome if there's one of the bars where I have a chance at getting a sitting/leaning spot at the bar (for easy beer access) if I arrive early. I won't have a chance to scope out bars before Sat. at noon or later.
I do want to go to a bar with other Michigan fans, as here in Providence I almost never encounter anyone with any college sports enthusiasm (much less Michigan fans) -- always make it a point when I'm traveling to get to Michigan bars.
in Edison, NJ (Central Jersey) is a good spot to watch games (they have a dedicated room and sound the 3-4 times I have been there).
There's always a decent contingent of Michigan fans in Huntsville, AL here:
Buffalo Wild Wings
5901 University Dr NW, Huntsville, AL
Would someone who can please add "Village Poorhouse" in Hoboken, New Jersey. It is where the North Jersey Alumni Association is going to be holding their game watching events this fall. I would do it myself but I don't think I can (as per the map) nor do I know how to.
Upper Deck is no longer the bar for the Phoenix area. Now we have two:
St. Louis Michigan Bar:
1921 S Brentwood Blvd
St Louis, MO 63144
If you're ever in that God-Forsaken country (and I don't mean either of the two capitols) then try Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The several barracks-turned-hotels have the Armed Forces Network, and you can usually find a few Americans that would love to open a Piva with you and watch the game in the early morning hours.
I'd recommend the Cosmos hotel, the Sputnik hotel, the Fili or the new Roscosmos hotel that's just down the broken asphault "road".
Remember, wherever you go, Go Blue!
Anybody trolling this thread looking for a friendly Nashville establishment, a small (but hopefully growing) contingent of us meet at Bar Louie in the Gulch. They have a decent beer selection, are not overrun with SEC fans, have many TVs, and the managers are Michigan grads.
They're very amenable, and when our crowd is big enough, they'll stick us in a private room.
Oh, and sometimes the awesome cook who lived in Sterling Heights will give us free nachos. Because he's awesome.
Bar Louie: 314 11th Ave S Nashville, TN 37203
im in beijing and need a place to go for the game...... itll be midnight sunday so im concerned...help
The Brass Tap at City Place, West Palm Beach, Florida
I know this was just posted above, but the link below will help the post rank in search results:
Michigan Football & Basketball Bars in Phoenix / Scottsdale AZ
Dos Gringos, 4209 N. Craftsman Court, Scottsdale, AZ 85251
Primary watch party location
Zipps' Sports Grill, 1515 East Bethany Home Road, Phoenix, AZ
Newer fan bar, but the attendance is picking up - Half Moon is no longer a UM bar.
Wondering if anyone knows a bar in Vienna, Austria or Budapest, Hungary to watch this saturdays ND game. Thanks.
I know the Budapest question was asked earlier but had no responses.
Were you all at? and anyone know any bars in Southern Ontario that is U-M Friendly? (GTA area?)
There is a bar in Del Ray Beach, FL.
710 Linton Blvd.
The Grand Tavern
I have been trying to put together a Michigan fan group in central Virginia this fall. I have a group which pretty consistently gets 7-10 Michigan fans together at the Livery Stable in Charlottesville, VA.
I know there is a permanent thread for Michigan friendly bars, and I will put this there as well, but I was just hoping to get a little bit of front page time.
I've created a facebook group called "watch Michigan Football in Charlottesville." The group is open so feel free to join to get updates on where we will meet, etc. For now, the meeting will be at the Livery Stable which is on the downtown mall. Their website says they are not open until 5, but don't believe it! They've said they will open just for us for kickoff.
Hi all! I think it's doubtful that anyone is searching for this, but I wanted to alert anyone interested that we'll be having a gamewatch at Rick's Roadhouse in the Jewelry District in Providence, RI for the Minnesota game 10/5. Right off I-95 and also accessible on foot or transit from downtown Providence or the East Side.
Lots of screens, sound, good prices on buckets of beer, good food.
This place seems enthusiastic about hosting for the remainder of the season as long as we can get a crowd this first week, so please come out if you're in Rhode Island, nearby areas of Connecticut, or Southeastern Mass.
(Yes, I am trying to throw in any regional words people might search for, since I figure that's the only way anyone will encounter this post. :)
...We are rotating to Hanley's Ale House on Pine St. in downtown Providence for the 11/2 game against MSU. This is the place that used to be McFadden's, which often drew a small group of M fans.
Apparently the two Michigan friendly bars here, The Blitz and The Upper Deck, are closed. Has any other bar become a Michigan friendly one here in Phoenix?
Bar Vittoria is a great place to enjoy a cold beer. Best part of this town is that one resident hangs a big OSU flag from his balcony while we hang the Maize and Blue from ours.
Sneaky's Sports Bar & Grill
7500 Ulmerton Rd. Largo FL.
U of M Season Ticket Holder Operated.
It is called The Alley Sports Tavern and it still caters to U of M. Same address.
Majors in Minneapolis is closed too.
Looking for UM friendly place to watch games in OKC. I have heard Republic is where it is at... just looking to confirm. Thanks!
have you tried contacting the OKC spirit group?
type in your city and address.. voila!
Not to beg but I need points, thanks
To my surprise I just recently found out that Bullwinkle's in Miamisburg, OH (Dayton) is a big Michigan bar. Both bartenders yell out "Go Blue" when seeing my friend's UM shirt. Multiple customers also with Go Blue.
Sweet Caroline's didn't renew, so the official UM Club of Greater Boston location starting in 2014 is:
911 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02115
Tavern in the Square (Porter Square) is still the spot in Cambridge
I will be volunteering/safari'ing in the Serengeti while the ND and Miami (NTM) games are played. Anyone know of any M-friendly pubs in Arusha?
There is a Miami-Ft. Lauderdale club which typically meets in FL and has sometimes met at the Beer and Burget Joint on South Beach, we watched some of the March Madness games last year there and that was a good spot!
Although not official, for people living in Brickell, a lot of Michigan fans watch games at the Beer and Burger Joint IN BRICKELL as well since it is conventient and they always have TVs and good food/beer.
Can you give me an address for the top bar? I have added the Brickell location to the map.
I have updated the map with any bars that were posted on this thread after September 2012. If you still don't see a bar that you know is Michigan friendly please post to the thread again. Do that same if you see a bar on the list that is either closed or no longer hosting games.
I didn't go check your list, but if it's not on there, alumni/fans in the Piedmont Triad (Greensboro/High Point/Winston-Salem) will be watching at Flipflop's Beach Bar & Grill in Greensboro this fall.
I went to Guilford and remember that location being a biker bar with a different name but still beach themed.
It's also now on the list.
The game watching venue for all Michigan football games, in the Triangle area, will be at Carolina Ale House in Brier Creek.
Address: 7981 Skyland Ridge Parkway, Raleigh, NC
The red dot in Durham should be moved to this location:
Don't worry, I can add the reciept part.
Edit: Also, should any of the others in that area be removed from the list?
There should be only 1 game watch listed in Austin:
This is the only location that has any loyalty to the fan base or communication with the Alumni Club at this point.... which is pretty tough to come by in Longhorn country. The Tavern has not been a game watch location for 5 years and should be removed.
Thanks for the info, I'll clarify in the description for both but I will leave up The Tavern just in case others want more options beside the official watch party.
while trying to do semi-official duties no less!
Up north here in alpena area for labor day 2014 weekend. Looking for fellow wolverines to watch app st game with, preferably at place with good beer. Anyone know if cheboygan brewing co has TV's?
Anybody got an idea of where to go in Vancouver?
I'm a long time lurker, but I wanted to post in order to save some people from the wild goose chase I went on in Prague in order to watch the game against App State. Not a Michigan bar per se, but they will stream games over their IPTV for you. Soccer is still king in the bar, but the owners are both from the US and are football fans. Definitely a bit away from the main square, but they were more than accommodating for me to watch the game there this past weekend.Expats BBQ Bar Oldřichova 5/822 Prague, Czech Republic +420 776 678 602
San Diego Alumni bar has changed from PB Bar & Grill.
It is now:
945 Garnet Ave.
San Diego, CA 92109
You should update this with the current ones in Chicago, especially the official bars ONLY, they support UM Scholarships!
