It’s the most wonderful time of the year—for college basketball fans! March Madness kicks off on March 15 and dominates the airwaves until the championship game on April 4.
While watching the games and catching up on the latest scores at home is enjoyable, it’s no match for the fun and excitement that comes with watching the game with a crowd of enthusiastic fans.
If you want to enjoy this year’s tournament games with other college basketball fanatics, we’ve compiled a list of the best sports bars in Brooklyn for watching March Madness.
Berry Park in Williamsburg
Located on Berry Street in the Williamsburg neighborhood, Berry Park is one of Brooklyn’s most popular places to catch any sporting event. Known for its welcoming atmosphere, delicious food and wide selection of beer. If the weather is nice, head up to the rooftop deck. Even if the game’s a bust, you’ll be able to enjoy the camaraderie, the weather and the spectacular view of the neighborhood.
Franklin Park in Crown Heights
Originally a mechanic shop, Franklin Park opened its doors in 2007 as an intimate bar with a patio setting. As its popularity and clientele grew, so did the need for a bigger venue. After acquiring the space next door, Franklin Park expanded. Now the toast of Crown Heights features two bars, an outdoor beer garden, a game room, and a full kitchen that specializes in everything from brunch and burgers to tacos and milkshakes. When it comes to March Madness viewing, you’ll never miss a beat thanks to multiple giant screens and digital projectors!
Applebee’s on Flatbush Avenue
If you’re looking for a nearby family- and/or senior-friendly establishment with reasonably priced food/drinks and comfortable accommodations, the Applebee’s on Flatbush Ave is the go-to choice. There’s plenty of room to spread out, booths and tables located away from the bar, and coloring books and activities for young children to enjoy during the games. And speaking of the games, the dining area is surrounded by large, elevated TV screens so you’ll never miss a moment of March Madness.
Of course, you can always invite friends over to your 363 Bond Street apartment to watch the big tournament games. Our spacious floor plans perfectly accommodate intimate gatherings of friends and family. And our kitchen and dining areas are ideal for serving up snacks all game long.
