  • Bottoms Up Sports Bar & Grill
    Twenty-five televisions seem like plenty of screens for watching pro sports, but at Bottoms Up Bar & Grill, they also have three 8-foot big screen TVs for an even more immersive sports-watching experience. However, when the TVs aren’t broadcasting sporting events, they take a back seat to a variety of other activities happening at the Grill. Guests chow down on steak sandwiches and personal-sized pizzas adorned with shrimp and sausage, while listening to the sounds of live bands jamming in the outdoor beer garden during warmer months or inside during the winter. And when the weather is warm, guests can also hurl bocce balls, basketballs, or beanbags during competitive games or confusing food fights.
