200 Congress, 512/827-2755

B.D. Riley's Irish Pub

Irish music, excellent pub grub, and Guinness and Smithwick's Ale by the 20-ounce imperial pint make this a great place to watch sports. Check out six 42-inch hi-def plasma TVs and the 65-inch "ScreenZilla" Mitsubishi in back.
204 E. Sixth, 512/494-1335

Bikinis Sports Bar & Grill

Some say the sliders here are the best in town. Happy hour draws a crowd, and so do the 31 TVs for the sports set.
