Where to watch football in the Rocket City
If you didn’t know, football is BIG in Alabama! (Don’t think you need that reminder, though.) People even plan their wedding days around football games! So, something this big should be appreciated in the best places around the Rocket City. Here’s your quick guide for where to watch any of the big games this football season!
New kid in town:
Has anyone been to the sweet new digs of The Martin? Make a point to go see the beautiful location overlooking Washington Street. Try any of their delicious artisanal cocktails and enjoy their open air bar. On Saturdays, they open an hour early (at 2pm) so everyone can come in to watch their game of choice. On Sundays, you can watch any NFL game… right after you fill up on the Martin’s brunch!
If you’re not into football: People watch on the street below you, drink and watch something else on one of their many TV’s!
Lowkey Vibes: Church Street Wine Shoppe
Church Street Wine Shoppe is a Huntsville staple. If you’re not into the sports bar ambiance, they just opened their loft which includes a large screen TV where you can watch the best college games. Relax in their laid back environment and try plenty of their delicious wines along with their tapas menu!
If you’re not into football: Look into the Church Street Wine Shoppe Wine Club, taste test all their amazing wine and just hang out.
Football TRAIN-ing: AM Booth’s Lumberyard
In case you missed it, AM Booth’s Lumberyard recently opened their Blue Bayou train car for special reservation dinners. Have you ever wanted to watch a football game in style? Now is your chance!
