St. Louis' Ten Best Sports Bars

Weber's Front Row
Okay, here's a test for all you so-called sports bars out there: Does your bartender know by heart which station to tune into to find the game? Or does he/she give you a blank stare and ask for the channel number? At Weber's you never get that deer-in-headlights look when you ask the barkeep to find your game. Why? Because Weber's employees are probably bigger fans than you and just as addicted to catching all the contests streamed through Weber's subscription packages to football, baseball, hockey and more. If you go, order the chicken wings -- some of the best in town -- and the pork tenderloin sandwich on garlic cheese bread. You'll be glad you did.

And the winner....

The Post
Warning: There is a chance, small but perceptible, that a complete stranger will hug you at the Post Sports Bar & Grill. And we're not talking about some half-assed "bro" hug, either, but a full-fledged, diaphragm-crushing bear hug. It happened to a friend of ours. He'd come to the Post on a Sunday to watch his hometown football team play its archrival. The bar was packed with other NFL expats and fantasy-football geeks watching the games on one of the Post's high-def flat-screens, but our friend was pretty sure he was the only fan of his team there -- until, that is, his team scored, and a man seated nearby erupted with a bellowing cheer. OK, so it turns out this stranger wasn't a fan of our friend's team, but he did have money on the game, and that (plus a few beers) was enough to cement the bond. When our friend's team pulled off a last-minute comeback, the stranger grabbed him in both arms, and the two jumped up and down with joy -- a celebration that might have been more pleasant had our friend not already gorged on the Post's tasty bar grub.
