So, you didn’t get tickets to the big game and now you're bummed. Don’t fret! You’re not alone, and you can still enjoy being with friends and other Tiger fans on game day. Your first option, of course, is the UNCOMMON Auburn Game Day Lounge or the outdoor lounges with TVs, where residents come together for every big game to celebrate the Tigers. For off-site fun, we recommend one of these three rocking, all-ages sports bars in Auburn.
Halftime Sports Bar & Grill
The Halftime packs them in on game day, and It’s one of the liveliest places to be, with orange shirts and hats all around. With 13 TVs, including a large projection screen, there’s good viewing from every seat. The menu features a full assortment of bar favorites, including wings, nachos, burgers, and wraps. Though it’s just a couple blocks away from UNCOMMON Auburn, the space isn’t huge, so get there early!
Baumhower’s Victory Grille
You can’t go wrong with Baumhower’s – it’s been going strong for 40 years. This large restaurant off I-85 on the edge of town has wall-to-wall TVs placed high for good viewing. Baumhower’s is also known for good food. Wings are a specialty, but the menu is all over the board with an array of apps, burgers, sandwiches, and entrees.
Wings Etc. Grill & Pub
Yes, it's a chain restaurant, but it’s nearby, it’s got tons of large-screen TVs and more than 70 items on the menu, and they specialize in – spoiler alert! – wings. What more could you want in a sports bar? Of course, there are other “wings” chains around, but Wings Etc. is literally just across the street from UNCOMMON Auburn, so, why not?
