    best "sports bar" to watch games

    any of you have any experience with what might be considered a sports bar in aruba?

    would be interested in watching nfl playoffs and just not sure what might be available and where.

    thanks

    We have not been, but Scott and Leslie of Scott's Brats recommended Double Down Sports Bar at the Tropicana casino. They have never steered us wrong, we just didn't hear about it till after football Sunday so we didn't get to try it.

    We did not care for Champions inside the Marriott. Touchdowns was just okay, nothing special, but close to the high rise hotels and my husband liked their wings. It has a very American sports bar feel to it.. Busters is different, it's a small dive bar type place with a friendly owner, nice tvs and sound system. On Sundays they do homemade food, that kind of reminded me of a pot luck at a friends house. Good place to watch a game, but not for everyone; its a no frills type place with a sole focus on the games so if you have anyone in your party who will not be entertained by football, don't go there wasn't much else going on.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    I loved watching games at the bar at Gilligans outside at the Hilton (feels weird to type)..not a sports bar by any means but they will put on the football game or always have soccer on as well if you like that sport (I am a varsity coach at the HS level, I love it)

    Another place right on the beach that will show games is The Beach Bar at Playa Linda. It's not really a sports bar but they draw a good crowd and the bartenders are great.
