Football season is finally here!

If you’re looking for the perfect place to watch the Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins for this year’s season opener on Sept. 7, then check out one of these area sports bars.

From Back Bay to Brookline, here are 10 places around Boston to watch the Patriots kick off the season in style.

CBS Scene

200 Patriot Place, Foxborough

cbsscene.com, 508-203-2200

So the Patriots are going to be in Miami to kick off the year (we’re jealous), but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the start of another season in Foxoborough. Located right next to Gillette Stadium, CBS Scene will have a ton of specials available on game day, including all you can eat wings ($10.50 per person), buckets of beer ($10), and half-priced appetizers starting at 9 p.m.


Parlor Sports

1 Beacon St., Somerville

parlorsportsbar.com, 617-576-0231

While the Somerville sports bar doesn’t have anything special planned for the Patriots season opener, the eatery will have its full menu available as well as the big game on its myriad of televisions. If you want to celebrate the start of a new season a little early, Parlor Sports will be hosting Harpoon’s new 100 Barrel series brewers in house before Thursday night’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks.


110 Huntington Avenue, Back Bay

As one of the premiere sports bars in town, Champions will definitely be packed for game day on Sunday. Thankfully, the establishment has a ton of televisions so you won’t miss any of the action.

Cask’n Flagon

62 Brookline Avenue, Fenway

The popular Fenway bar is a go-to spot for area sports fans, so expect a large crowd when the Patriots take on the Dolphins this weekend. Cask also has a nice outdoor patio, so take advantage of it before the fall weather sets in.

Phoenix Landing

512 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge

phoenixlandingbar.com, 617-576-6260

This Cambridge sports bar won’t just be showing the Patriots this weekend, but every single game that will be going down this season. Phoenix will also be serving up drink and appetizer specials during each match-up.


Jerry Remy’s

1265 Boylston St., Fenway

Usually a hot spot for Red Sox fans, Jerry Remy’s in Fenway will also be a prime location to watch the Patriots this weekend. Considering the location has two 6.5-foot by 11-foot “Screen Monsters’’ and 30 60-inch HD televisions, you’ll feel like you’re right on the field with Brady and the gang.


911 Boylston St., Back Bay

mcgreevysboston.com, 617-262-0911

The popular Boylston bar is going to be pretty packed for the Patriots opener on Sunday, so don’t be surprised to see a sea of Brady and Gronk jerseys. We’re guessing you can expect McGreevy’s to get a little wild.

The Four’s

166 Canal St., Boston

thefours.com/boston, 617-720-4455

It’s not a huge venue, but this Canal Street bar is a cozy place to watch this weekend’s opener with friends. While it may be a little packed on game day, you should be able to catch all of the action on The Four’s 40+ televisions.

Coolidge Corner Clubhouse

307 Harvard St., Brookline

thecoolidgecornerclubhouse.com, 617-566-4948

Brookline isn’t really known for its sports bars, but that doesn’t mean you can’t catch the game while you’re in the area. Grab a bite or a drink at the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse, which will be showing the Patriot season opener on Sunday afternoon.

Stadium Sports Bar and Grill

148 State St., South Boston

stadiumbars.com, 857-263-8262

Between its 20 HD televisions and pair of HD projectors, Stadium is the place to watch the Patriots in South Boston. Be sure to get there early as the popular sports bar is expected to fill up by noon on Sunday.
