1. Parlor Sports 3 Beacon St, Somerville, MA 02143 (Inman Square)

From the makers of Trina's Starlite Lounge in Somerville comes Parlor Sports, the... sportier, flatscreen-ier next-door hangout for dudes who desperately want to see if starting Sam Gash on their fantasy squad was a good move while towning nachos and High Lifes in a (surround) sound environment.

2. SKYBOKX 109 GastroSports 319 Speen St, Natick, MA 01760 (Western Suburbs)

Quite possibly the first and only "gastrosports" bar in the greater Boston area, SKYBOKX 109 boasts not only the ability to make up words like "gastrosports" but also 22 flat screens, live tunes, tea-infused bourbon cocktails, and comfy pub fare like Maker’s Mark BBQ ribs and braised duck 'za, all just steps away from the comforts of Natick Mall's Yankee Candle.

4. Ned Devine's 1 Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston, MA 02109 (Watertown)

Ned Devine's Quincy Market is a buzzy, touristy pub that slings traditional British and Irish favorites like corned beef and bangers and mash -- by day, at least. Once the sun goes down, the dilapidated brick walls are washed in green and purple neon light, and the whole place becomes a clubby bar with DJ-ed dance parties and live music.

5. The Harp 85 Causeway St, Boston, MA 02114

Conveniently located, The Harp is a great place to stop on your way to or from TD Garden, or if you are looking for a solid spot to grab a bite or a drink in general. Looking for a DJ-fueled dance party? Just head downstairs!

6. Olde Magoun's Saloon 518 Medford St, Somerville, MA 02145 (Somerville)

Olde Magoun's is a great spot to sit down and enjoy some hearty Irish and American pub fare in a friendly atmosphere. They will accommodate a liquid diet as well -- their draft list (full of craft beer) and craft spirits list (full of small batch bourbon) won't disappoint.
