Best Sports Bar, North Phoenix - 2010
16th Street Sports Bar - CLOSED
Keith Prescott's a man of many passions, and chief among them is soccer. Ask the UK native about soccer and you'll hear tales of his tenure with the Liverpool Football Club, as well as his experience attending the 1966 World Cup (when Britannia ruled the roost). Along with his wife, Marianne Hansen, the 63-year-old has utilized his footie fanaticism to transform their North Phoenix neighborhood bar into a preferred hangout for others who are passionate for the pitch. Match-ups from around the world are featured on the bar's tellies and dozens of jersey-clad types packed the place during this year's World Cup. Thing is, it's also a great joint in which to witness every other kind of televised athletic endeavor. Being proper Europeans, Prescott and Hansen also know a thing or three about beer and stock more than 40 bottled imported and domestic brands, with 16 brews available on draught (including Boddington's, Strongbow, and Dundee).
