1ST RND

With one location in West Ed and one downtown, this is a super accessible option for those looking to catch an Oilers game. With pub grub, tons of TVs, and even a sports ticker, you can eat your heart out while never missing a second.

Hours: Vary per location
Where: West Edmonton Mall and 11248 104 Avenue NW

B Street Bar

This is a nice mix between specialty sports bar and classic neighbourhood hangout. Happy hour runs all day long, they’ve got some pool tables, and we’re sure their karaoke nights absolutely pop off. It’s perfect for those nights when you want the game to be in the background.

Hours: Sunday to Thursday, 11AM-12AM and Friday/Saturday, 11AM-2AM

This hip, industrial space downtown is perfect for when you want to watch a game with a ton of friends. This is our top pick for catching UFC matches, since the crowd is sure to be high-energy. Plus, they often have specials to match the fights.

Hours: Monday to Wednesday, 11:30AM-12AM, Thursday/Friday, 11:30AM-2AM, Saturday, 10AM-2AM and Sunday, 10AM-12AM
Where: 10909 Jasper Avenue

Billy Budd’s Lounge

This spot gets the award for best name on the list. It also ties with B Street Bar for best ‘classic/neighbourhood sports bar’. Yeah, we just made that award up and it’s completely arbitrary, but check this place out first before you disagree.

Hours: Sunday to Thursday, 10AM-1AM and Friday/Saturday, 10AM-3AM
Where: 9839 63 Avenue NW

Kelly’s Pub

We recommend this pub for two different sports- football and football. No seriously, they show as many Premier League and UEFA matches as possible. Plus, during the CFL season they organize a super cheap party bus to and from Eskimos games.

Hours: Daily, 11AM-2AM
Where: 10156 104 Street NW
