For folks in the Corridor, Lefty's is a pretty good spot. Other than that, folks by Wayne didn't have many options other than heading to Harry's.

Z's Villa on Piquette at Woodward. New Center area. Not a "Sports Bar" but plenty of TVs and I am sure the game will be on.

Detroit Beer Comapny - Downtown

Hockeytown Cafe - Downtown

Leftys Lounge - Midtown

Bookies bar (former Bookies Tavern) - Downtown

plenty of other places, mainly downtown that you can hop into. I'm the sort of guy to stick with what works - so I tried a few, liked them and I haven't explored much since - I just continue to go to the same places

Whatever happened to Spectadium?

I remember hearing about it years ago on the radio and never had the inkling to go there to check out a sports event. Is it still even in existence?

Spectadium - at least the one on Crooks south of Big Beaver/I-75 - has been closed for a couple of years.

I wasn't much of a fan of it. The food was so-so and it just got too raucous on big game nights for me.

Coach's Corner in Harmonie Park is another downtown sports bar choice. Lots of room, plenty of tv's and a view outside

Spectadium is open again, sort of. It's called CJ Mahoney's now, a local chain. I haven't been there yet but have heard that they really spruced it up and kept the same layout. I'll be there for day one of the NCAA tourney next week.

Pappy's had a whole lot more atmosphere when it was the Athens Bar. Pretty sterile now... but for what it is (a tourist place), it's OK.

What about Cheli's downtown? Their Dearborn place is pretty good, but I haven't inside their place right across from Comerica Park.

I was thinking about hanging out there during the Final Four. Worthwhile?

How about Harry's on Clifford? I'm not a big sports fan but have been with others and find the food there a cut above Cheli's and other sports bars I've been to.

Any true sports bar has the sound of the primary game turned on and other games on the secondary screens. A lot of the chains, like Cheli's, often have music playing. They had better broadcast the sound for March madness!

There's always your local Buffalo Wild Wings. Plenty of TV's and they usually stream the game broadcast through the overhead speakers. Hockeytown Cafe is fun. The Detroiter Bar is a fun place to watch sports, althought the number of patrons varies between 5 and 50, so it's a crap shoot if there's going ot be a crowd or not. The Bouzouki Sports Bar (according to the receipt) has plenty of tv's and halftime entertainment, however you will be hearing music and not the game over the speakers.
