Best Sports Bar, Scottsdale - 2008
Upper Deck Sports Grill
This converted two-level nightclub in Old Town Scottsdale proudly flies Arizona teams' flags outside along with those of Michigan and Illinois teams, for all the Midwestern transplants to our fine state. We like it because the laid-back atmosphere and comfortable setting ensures all fans can get along amongst 40 screens and two big projectors. (These are crucial to any sports bar. Upper Deck could teach many of the other bars around town claiming the "sports bar" label.) Upper Deck goes the extra furlong over its competition with off-track betting upstairs. And once you're in the door, it does its best to keep you there with free Wi-Fi, cheap weekly food specials, and occasional live bands or DJs at night.
