Perfect places to watch the Stanley Cup in Nashville

The Stanley Cup finals are an exciting event to watch. In my opinion NHL games are always exciting to watch all season long. Living in Nashville has made me a fond fanatic of the Nashville Predators, or as we like to call them "The Preds". We are all hoping they make it to the finals. It will be a fun filled extravaganza. The perfect places to watch the Stanley Cup Finals in Nashville are action packed.

Sam's

Nashville
Christina Porcelli

1803 21st Avenue South, Nashville TN

I cannot plug this sports bar enough. It is the end all be all of Nashville sports bars. You can enjoy an iced cold one, beautiful, friendly servers and bartenders, and a slew of flat screen TVs. If the game happens to be on a Tuesday then you and your buddies are in for a treat. It's 2 for 1 all day and night. They have an extensive beer selection including my favorite Blue Moon. I frequent this bar especially when there are major sports happenings going on. The crowd is friendly and personable. The prices are extremely affordable and the food is tasty. I suggest you try the Chicken and Herb Pizza.

Spanky's Sports Bar and Grill

330 Welch Road, Nashville TN

Spanky's is a casual fun loving establishment. They have 9 TVs, pool tables, ping pong tables and more. This is the perfect place to watch the Stanley Cup and enjoy some extra curricular activities. They offer an extensive menu of domestic and imported beers including Pabst, Sierra Nevada, and Corona. I have attended several sporting events at this festive establishment and had a memorable time.

3 Crow

1024 Woodland Street, Nashville, TN

This hipster sports bar is a little more stylish then the rest. Skinny jeans and hippie attire fill this establishment. This is a laid back smoky bar. This is a popular spot for local musicians, artists and those who enjoy sports. If the Stanley Cup Finals fall on a Wednesday you are in luck. Wednesdays at 3 Crow are 2 for 1 night. There is a tasty menu available filled with sandwiches, soups, dips, and pizzas. The prices are affordable and service is fast.
