As we prep for Game 1 of Round 3 this Sunday of the NHL Playoffs, pubs are becoming the popular hotspots to claim your table and gather friends and fans alike to cheer the home team on. So, as I do every year, here are my top recommendations of the BEST spots to catch the game in Kits.
#5 – The Local – 2210 Cornwall Avenue
Although this spots gets lots of comments and votes for best pub in Kits, I ranked it in the #5 spot because I can’t justify having to give up my entire afternoon to wait in line for a table! The summer the days get this problem will only get worse!
#4 – The Wolf and Hound – 3617 West Broadway
Sometime a forgetten gem being a bit west on Broadway, this longstanding local spot has a great beer selection and really decent food. If you can score one of their prime couch spots is a great place to gather with friends in a comfy living room style atmosphere.
#3 – Manchester Public Eatery – 1941 West Broadway
This SPACIOUS pub in the old Frog and Firken location on Broadway and Cypress is a great option for catching a game. Partly because it is a big unknown so you won’t have the line-up’s to contend with but they have one of the best TV to seat ratio’s of any competing joint.
#2 – Coppertank Grill – 3135 West Broadway
Coppertank draws the #2 ranking as it is one of the funnest spots to set up your cheering station. They do a puck draw at the beginning of the game, and if your player scores…your table drinks. Pick the right puck and you can be in for a very out of hand night. Cab or walking is advised.
#1 – Regal Beagle – 2283 West Broadway
Local, great owners, a stellar menu and all over best atmosphere and crowds I can find in Kits. Once the game is over they always play the best tunes to help celebrate a big win
Regardless where your favorite Nucks watching spot is, one thing I think all the pub’s can agree on is the deep playoff drive had been a nice boost in sales for the spring months!
