Can I Watch the Atlanta Falcons in Seattle?
October 16, 2010 5:02 AM   Subscribe

I'll be on a trip to Seattle on Sunday, 11/7 -- the day that my hometown team the Atlanta Falcons will be squaring off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since I'm guessing that the Atlanta-Tampa Bay contest will not the be featured game on the local Seattle Fox affiliate, I'm wondering ... Is there any place in Seattle (I'm thinking sports bar, I guess?) where expatriate Falcons fans gather? Heck, I'd even be willing to go to place where expatriate Bucs fans gather. Or just a sports bar in general where they might show all the games on various monitors. Thanks!

What neighborhood will you be staying in? There are sports bars in every neighborhood that will have the game, but it will be easier if you narrow it down.

Or just call local bars once you are there and ask if they have the Sunday Ticket.

My hotel is in the Lake Union area.

Go to Buckleys on 2nd downtown. It's not the home of the Falcon backers (I don't know who is) but they'll be showing the game and it's got a great vibe. Ignore reviews that say it's just a fraternity boy hangout, that may be true on weekend evenings but its a football fans kinda place on Sunday and they show all games.

I disagree, Buckley's is a total frat boy hangout, even during games. However, most of the bars downtown and in Belltown are. Another choice is the Fox Sports Grill downtown which is corporate-y but has much better food than Buckley's.

The Ram (multiple locations, U Village and Northgate in Seattle proper) seems to always show a variety of games.

My friend ended up taking me to a place called Sport, downtown near the Space Needle. We were able to sit in a booth with the Falcons game on our own TV as well as see several other games on the various TVs around the room.
