Top Sports Bars for Bettors in Tennessee

Navigating the sports betting landscape in the state of Tennessee is tricky. Tennessee officially made sports wagering legal in May of 2019. However, mobile sportsbooks within the state did not officially launch until November of last year.

With the Titans and Volunteers about to kick off their 2022 seasons, now is the time to start making plans for getting out with friends and catching a game in your favorite sports bar.

Whether you are looking for a new sports bar, looking to upgrade your current go-to destination, or looking for a bar that caters to the ever-growing sports betting population in Tennessee, we have you covered.

Use our picks for the best sports bars across Tennessee to find the perfect spot near you!

Dave & Busters

540 Opry Mills Dr, Nashville, TN 37214
While a sports bettor can legally wager within the Tennessee state lines, there is another obstacle to overcome: There are no casinos in the state. This leaves betting on a mobile platform the only option for Tennessee residents.

However, sports bettors can still wager on games (via the mobile apps) and enjoy a casino-like sports bar experience at the many Dave & Buster locations within the state.

Watching the game with your buddies at Dave & Busters in Nashville is astoundingly more fun than viewing the game by yourself at home!

Reasons to Watch Sports at Dave and Busters

Here are some more reasons why visiting Dave and Busters is the best option for Tennessee sports bettors.

The WOW Wall- If you are a sports investor who loves to watch multiple games at one time, you have to check out the WOW Wall! The WOW Wall is complete with TV screens that are 40 feet wide. This enables you to watch 6 games at once with stadium-quality sound!

Point Spread Ticker- This was probably my favorite feature that was offered at Dave & Buster’s Nashville back when I visited a few years ago! A live scrolling point spread ticker is positioned above the bar and just below some of the TV screens! You simply cannot beat getting to check the spreads while watching current games at the same time! It is this feature that is key to proving the “casino-like” experience for sports bettors!

Fun for the Whole Family- Dave & Buster’s provides fun for the entire family (even for those that do not enjoy sports). The Nashville location boasts a robust bowling alley, plenty of pool tables, and tons of Virtual Reality video games that your kids can enjoy while you are sweating out your sports bets!

Bailey’s Sports Grille

408 Broadway Nashville, TN 37203

As we mentioned in our Dave& Buster’s review, sports bettors in Tennessee have some hurdles to overcome when it comes to watching and betting on their favorite teams. Even though Tennessee has legalized sports betting, there are still no casinos within the state lines.

The best option at this point for Tennessee sports investors is to download an app from a reputable sportsbook and find a great sports bar with a “casino-like” atmosphere to enjoy watching their bets! Bailey’s Sports Grille in both downtown Nashville and nearby Goodlettsville fits these criteria to a T!

Why Watch at Bailey’s Sports Grille Instead of at Home?

Here are some reasons why taking in the games at Bailey’s is much more fun than watching at home.

Smoking is Allowed - A lot of sports bars are also considered a restaurant as well, meaning they allow anyone in regardless of age. Bailey’s Sports Grille is a 21 and up facility which means you can smoke inside. This is huge for sports bettors because lots of gamblers smoke cigarettes during games to relieve the stress. Also, there is nothing better than a huge victory cigar after winning a big bet!

Location - Bailey’s location is in the heart of downtown Nashville at 408 Broadway! It is within walking distance of several well-known Nashville “honky-tonks”. This means you can eat, drink, watch your bets win, and then head over to hear some good ol’ authentic country music!

Nashville HOT Chicken - If you have never tried Nashville HOT chicken, Bailey’s is a great place to experience this Tennessee tradition. The burgers are also a delicious option as well.

MVP Program - Bailey’s is the “real MVP” when it comes to this rewards program. For every $300 spent, you get $20 in free reward dollars! Also, you can redeem these reward dollars at any Bailey’s, Champps, Fox & Hound, Craft Republic, Grady’s, or Kings locations. Who doesn’t love free money? All gamblers certainly do!
