5 Places to Watch Football in Green Lake
‘Tis the season for all things football. We apologize in advance if we’re revealing your secret watering hole, but we have to do what we have to do. Here are five great locations to watch football in and around Green Lake.
- Green Lake Bar and Grill
Notes: Features three TVs total, two at the bar and one facing the lobby. Come early and stake your claim, as they cannot reserve spots in the bar. Great place for a boozy brunch, they have a cocktail menu just for breakfast (I recommend the Ultimate Bloody Mary).
Bonus: A little bird told us there’s a booth in the back of the restaurant with its own TV, try to grab it if you can.
Address: 7200 E. Green Lake Dr N
- St. Andrews Bar and Grill
Notes: 1,000+ sq. foot space, 130″ HD projection screen, four 50″ screens. Menu includes standard game-day fare including Highlander hot wings, fresh baked nachos and Rod Stewart Onion Rings (we’re not sure). There’s also a wide variety of sandwiches and daily soups made from scratch.
Bonus: St. Andrews is home to one of Washington’s largest selections of Single Malt Scotches. So there’s that.
Address: 7406 Aurora Ave. N
- Turnpike Pizza
Notes: Feature two TV’s and plenty of seating. If you’re a pizza-football person this is a pizza-football-place for you. Also rotating, seasonal beers on tap. And if you begin to lose it during halftime and need to throw in the towel, they have great to-go options.
Bonus: Turnpike is gluten-free and vegan friendly! Options for everyone is always a bonus.
Address: 6900 E Green Lake Way N
- Elysian Tangletown
Notes: Multiple TVs that are nicely angled so you can get a great view in any seat. It is intimate with about 80 seats, so we advise to come early and hungry for brunch. Everything under the sun from lox bagels and benedicts to hamburgers and dips. Brunch and lunch come together happily here.
Bonus: Obviously, the beer.
Address: 2106 N 55th St
- Kate’s Pub
Notes: Big screen TV projector for big games and offer happy hour everyday from 4pm-8pm. Good old fashioned American pub fare, we hear great things about the mac and cheese and burgers. Talented bartenders who can mix up just about anything. Did we mention pudding jello shots?
Bonus: If you need to let out some steam, there’s a pool table, darts and old school board games.
Address: 309 NE 45th St
