Watch the game here on one of 21 high-definition plasma-screen TVs, and choose from an even greater number of beers on tap. Evening entertainment occasionally includes comedy, but this is definitely a sports bar. The menu has traditional pub grub like fish and chips or bangers and mash, and less traditional fare like chicken tikka masala and Thai yellow tofu. During football season, the Englander opens early on Sundays for the NFL breakfast. Enjoy your food and drinks inside or on the patio.
This Jack London Square club used to be a hot spot for salsa, but these days it attracts a well-heeled, mature African-American crowd. The huge, open-aired, barnlike venue has two sides: one is a sports bar and billiards hall; the other is a nightclub, karaoke, and comedy club. In both cases, be prepared to adhere to the club's dress-code policy of hard-soled shoes and no T-shirts or sportswear for men, and "sexy attire" for ladies. DJs spin hip-hop and R&B on Friday nights, while Saturday night specifically caters to an older clientele.
