What Makes a Great Sports Bar?
Stadium Sports Bar & Grill has the perfect recipe that makes them the place to grab a bite and watch the big game.
Stadium Sports Bar & Grill, with its three current locations in South Boston, Quincy, and Waltham, offers the best of both worlds. With high-definition TVs showing the most hyped games and a sports bar menu done right, Stadium has all the right ingredients to bring in casual and hardcore sports fans alike.
The appeal of any good sports bar lies in its food and drinks, sports programming, comfortable seating, and an atmosphere that is built around concepts like music, games, and specials. Watching a game at a sports bar eliminates the inconveniences of live sporting events like hefty ticket prices, difficulty parking, hecklers, and fickle weather. But it also lends a camaraderie and sociability that can’t be found while sitting at home watching a game alone. “It’s the place to be when you want to cheer for your favorite team,” says John McGrail, CEO and founder of the Mayo Group and owner of the restaurant chain. “At Stadium, you won’t find a bad seat in the house.”
Those great seats at Stadium are a ticket to more than just your average sports programming. All three locations boast an array of high-definition TVs that show a complete variety of games – not just the usual local fare. And if customers can’t make it to game time, there’s no need to worry, because Stadium also airs replays. “It’s the ultimate way to view sports,” says McGrail.
In addition to the access to quality sports programming, one of the main draws of a sports bar is the food. A sports bar can hardly call itself such without standbys like wings and burgers, but the food needs to be memorable – both executed well and priced right – and include a variety that ranges from healthy to hearty. A menu that is heavy on appetizers and signature American bar food like pizza, chili, and nachos is sure to draw a crowd. Drink specials and handcrafted beers are a great draw for a long afternoon or evening spent watching a game. And no sports fan would turn down daily specials like Stadium’s $ .40 wings and half-price pizza and burgers.
Beyond televised sports and tasty fare, people come to sports bars to play televised trivia games and billiards, socialize with friends and fellow fan (and rivals)s, and enjoy special events like raffles, opportunities to meet sports stars and get their autographs, and Stadium’s weekly, no-cover live music evenings featuring the hottest local bands.
Stadium Bar & Grill features other amenities, as well – including a function room in its Boston location complete with HD projection systems and TVs. The Quincy location boasts two function rooms; one is home to a dance floor and HD projection systems, and another features Xbox, Wii, leather seating, and HD TVs. Stadium also caters events and sponsors a customer loyalty program with convenient mobile phone access.
Sports bars are an American institution, and Stadium delivers the whole package. From friendly service to upscale, contemporary American cuisine, Stadium is the consummate sports bar experience, serving up everything a sports fan could ask for. Fans can feel at home while being right in the middle of the action.
