Best Sports Bar, Downtown Phoenix Phoenix 2010 - Coach & Willie's - CLOSED
There's a lot missing from downtown Phoenix, but there's no shortage of places to watch the game if you can't nab tickets (or would rather nurse an all-too-frequent loss from the comfort of a barstool). But Coach & Willie's is not your typical sports bar. It's decked out in flat-screens — no need to worry about the tall guy with the big head sitting in front — and throws the best pre- and post-game parties of any joint in town. Their remedy for a post-Artest-rebound breakdown? A dozen different import and domestic beers are on tap, and these bartenders are known to pour a strong cocktail.
