The Best Little Rock Sports Bars

Looking for a place to watch the game? These local sports bars offer more than just a good seat to the big event, they also good food, a great atmosphere and more. Try these local sports bars for the next Super Bowl, Razorback game or playoff.

Most of these bars are also great to visit when there isn't a big game on. They will probably have the television sets on some sporting event, however, if you're looking for a quiet evening, you probably should avoid big sporting events and pretty much any SEC game night. The bars can get quite loud, especially if the Razorbacks (or one of our rivals) are playing.

Bars in Little Rock that admit patrons that are under 21 are non-smoking establishments. Smoking establishments are 21 and up over. Most of the bars that do decent food service allow families.
