Where everyone goes to watch the big game.

Boston isn’t just a sports town: it’s a championship town. Nay, a dynasty town. And with diehard Bruins, Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox fans looking to watch as many games as possible, there’s no offseason for the city’s sports bars. But which ones are the most popular?

Thanks to data from check-in app Swarm, we were able to find out which sports bars people checked into the most from Wednesday, March 30 to Tuesday, April 5.

For those unfamiliar, Swarm is an app from Foursquare that lets users check in when they visit locations like restaurants, bars, and parks. The app also makes every day a game with perks like coins and mayorships, and lets users keep track of streaks and places they’ve been with an updated profile tab.
