- This popular spot isn't usually classified as a sports bar, but it's a favorite among locals for a bite to eat and a craft beer while watching the multiple televisions behind the bar.

With its own exclusive parking, Barleymash offers a wide range of food options, from charred, grilled sushi salad to pork ribs and chicken and waffles. Plus, they can even host your next party.

Miller's Field

The crowd tends to be younger, probably because of its location just a block from the beach. Plus, WiFi is free for those who want to be productive or check other scores.

Bub's at the Ballpark

- This environmentally friendly bar was built using various architectural elements from across the West Coast, such as reclaimed wood, scrap metal and reused bricks. Formerly located in Pacific Beach, it's now close to the stadium, as the name suggests.

Happy hour is from 7 to 10 p.m., 7 days a week, with red baskets at half price (chips, rings, fried pickles and more). Order a craft beer or even a canned PBR.

McGregor's Grill & Ale House

- This creation has become one of San Diego's favorite sports bars, serving award-winning burgers and many other American favorites with a wide selection of local and regional craft beers. It was the headquarters of the Baltimore Ravens in San Diego, so if they play, there are sure to be a lot of people.

The Local Pacific Beach - This spot is perfect for soaking up the spirit of all the upcoming sporting action; whether it's in the MLB, the NFL or the NCAA, it all unites us.
