Looking for the ultimate dog loving sports spot? The Morrison has a doggie menu, complimentary biscuits, and a water bowl for your four-legged friend to enjoy while you cheer for your favorite team. It’s dark decor will make you feel at home if you’re a Raiders fan (if you’re not, it’s still cool).

3387 Motor Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90034
This former auto shop was meant to be a sports bar —and it’s one of West LA’s most amiable with an attentive staff that keeps the pitchers coming. The large TVs are indoors (22 in total), but the outside patio has a ton of seating and perfectly perched screens of it’s own. Shuffleboard and ping pong will be happening around you, with plenty of sprawling space for the pooch. Don’t leave without trying a burger and the semi-addictive fries. Happy hour is weekdays from 4-7 PM, a number of drafts are just $3 and select pitchers are $10.
1351 3rd Street Promenade
Santa Monica, CA 90401
The ol’ reliable Barney’s (we recommend the Santa Monica location) pours a ton of beers on tap, boasts huge screens, and comes complete with wacky Route 66 decor to complete the ambience of excited, cheering fans. Grab a seat as soon as you can—the patio is on the small side. Bring a friend to save your spot so you can take the pooch on a stroll around the promenade during half time. Happy hour is 4-7 PM on weekdays, with $3.50 drafts and $4.50 well drinks.
2609 N Hyperion Avenue
Los Angeles, 90027
The open air, industrial space at Barella offers a variety of brews on tap with ample room to sit and lounge, complete with bar grub that’s a step above the usual. All the while, you can catch the game on their huge projector (note: you may need to perk your ears a bit to catch to dialogue). Prepare for people watching and pizza at this Los Feliz favorite. Happy hour is 4-7 PM on weekdays, plus a Sunday Funday: 2 for 1 cocktails all day long.
