With four major league pro sports teams—the NFL Lions, the NHL Red Wings, the NBA Pistons, and the MLB Tigers—and three NCAA Division I college teams in the area (the University of Michigan, the University of Detroit Mercy, and Wayne State University), it’s no surprise that sports are pretty big in and around Detroit. So, where the best place to catch your favorite sports team?

The Best Places to Watch Your Team in Detroit…
If You’re a Hockey Fan
If you don’t mind a drive to downtown Detroit, Andrews on the Corner is known as home to the hockey community of hockeytown, and not just because the fans like to catch a game there or the shuttle services to the Joe on game day. No, broadcasters, coaches, refs, and even former players have been known to stop in.
If You’re a Baseball Fan
Nemo’s is the place to get rowdy, grab a burger, and hang out before, during, or after the game. You can even catch a shuttle from the bar to Coamerica field, if you’re lucky enough to have tickets.

If you’re looking to cheer on the Lions, you might want to try out Fowling Warehouse, which blends football and bowling. It’s a full bar featuring BYOG (bring your own grub), tailgating on game days, and free parking and shuttles to Ford Field.
If You’re a UMich Fan
Head to Bookies Bar & Grille on game night for drink and food specials, as well as free UMich giveaways. Side note, they also do game day specials for Tigers names.
