Sports Bars

It can be argued that the first sports bars in the United States had games that could be played by patrons. The location of bars near fields and ball parks offered an after game meal and celebration to fans can be classified as a "sports bar." In the 1960s, a bar in Buffalo, New York, offered less expensive food options such as sandwiches and spicy chicken wings as an attraction for local football fans. The modern sports bar was the creation of Dennis Harrah, he was an offensive lineman with the Los Angeles Rams and opened Legends in Long Beach, California in 1979. Legends was a stand out, live satellite broadcast sports, sports memorabilia, food and drink. The goal is for fans to have feel the experience of being at the game with fans and their team. Today sports bars offer multiple game viewing options, full bar service with a supporting menu, along with games for patrons.
