More than just a sports bar----Chappell's is a bonafied museum enshrined in a restaurant.

Jerseys, autographed balls, helmets and autographed photos adorn the walls of this Northtown gem, where you could spend days gazing in amazement. But whilst you're there, grab a cold one, belly up to the bar and watch a game.

Considered by many to be KC's upscale sports bar, you can sit at their beautiful oak bar or head to the dining room to enjoy a great dinner with your significant other. Wherever you might be, there are enough TV's to watch a game from any vantage point. With two metro locations, both offer a great menu and a place to hang out and watch your favorite team. The Sunday brunch buffet offers up everything from prime rib to omelets from 10a-1:30p so you may hunker down for a long day of football.

135th and Metcalf
6830 w. 135th, Overland Park, KS. 66223
With over 8 metro locations--the KC Guide marks Tanner's Waldo, Downtown and 87th locations among our faves of the Tanner's locales. Tanner's is what you expect a sports bar to be--great bar food, cold beer and plenty of tv's for spectator sport watching. They've got sliders, wings and world famed chicken lips, which we're not really sure what that exactly consists of. One thing is for sure--any place that you can add rotel to your tater tots is tops on the list with us.
6. Gran Falloon
Although the wait staff can at times be a little slow--the Falloon is one of the best sports in the city with an assortment of TV's usually turned to ESPN, cold bevvies and a resident group of guys having a Golden T-off. With the norm of appetizers, burgers and nachos grab some food with a bunch of pals and watch the game. But if you've got your heart set on ordering a Bully Pale Ale don't do it here--they don't serve Boulevard brew here.
Well known around the metro for their great pizza, Minsky's multiple KC locations vary considerably on the number of televisions available for your sports watching pleasure. The Barry Road West, River Market and Lenexa locales have pleanty of boxes to catch your fave game.
Yes, yes, yes...we know (!) they've got great wings. But orange shorts aside, Hooter's is a great place to catch a game, enjoy some good bar food and a cold brew in a frosty mug. With 5 metro locations, there is a Hooter's in practically every neighborhood.
Whether you're at Paddy's or Johnny's--you'll hopefully have the luck o'the Irish when heading to one of the O'Quigley's KC sports bar spots. Choose the Northland, Leawood, or Lee's Summit locations which promise a great assortment of appetizers and burgers for your enjoyment--all while watching the game of one of their humongo big screens.
As if the name didn't say it all--Coach's Bar and Grill is a great neighborhood place for all things sports. Long considered the first and foremost sports bar in Kansas City, owners Chris Carle and Mike Darby don't disappoint with their masses of hi-def projection tv's, plasmas galore and boast a 50 inch plasma for all to enjoy. Usually packed for big college and pro-games, the gang at Coach's are always happy to turn on whatever game you want to see. We like the original 103rd location--where everybody knows your name.
