Visit Stockton

Need a place to watch the World Series? These Stockton sports bars offer a lot of TVs, plus good food and beer, too!

There are plenty of sports bars in Stockton, California to catch the World Series, all of which have more to offer than your typical stadium hot dog and nachos.

If you want front-row seats to the action, these Stockton sports bars have what you need where you can wear your favorite jersey and yell at a television screen among fellow fans.

To assist in maximizing your viewing pleasure, we’ve put together a list of the top sports bars to watch the 2018 World Series, so maybe switch it up and watch a game in a new spot:

Port City Sports Bar & Grill

For fans who plan to get their drink on, the pour-your-own-beer model at Port City Sports Bar & Grill is as much a novelty as it is useful during a busy game day. No need to wait for a distracted server, just grab your glass and pour.

Port City offers a decent selection of imported and domestic beers, as well as a few choice craft brews—they’ve even got taps set up to pour wine, if that’s what you’re into. Everyone will find something they like to drink, and nobody has to wait around to do it.

Bites here are American standards: deep fried and covered in sauce. 70-inch TV screens and a full sports package make this the perfect place for tracking down any team.

Port City Sports Bar & Grill is located next the the downtown Stockton Movie Cineplex at 222 N El Dorado Street, (209) 948-4005.

Chitiva's Salsa & Sports Bar

Not all sports fans need to watch the game to have a good time. Sometimes, just wearing the team’s colors is enough to get the party started. For fans who prefer to watch the game in the background, Chitiva’s Salsa & Sports Bar is the right fit.

Chitiva’s waterfront location in downtown Stockton will put game-goers in the heart of the action with plenty of distractions for fair-weather fans. Chitiva’s has a dance floor, great views of downtown Stockton, a large patio, and live music several nights a week.

When the games are over, you don’t have to go anywhere to keep the partying going.

Chitiva's Sports Bar is located in the Historic Waterfront Warehouse at 445 W Weber Avenue, (209) 941-8605.

 

Valley Brewing Company

For fans who don’t mind paying a bit more for ambiance, Valley Brewing Company is a welcome upgrade.

This bar and restaurant is Stockton’s first microbrewery. They specialize in American cuisine, namely burgers and hot sandwiches.

There are more jerseys on the walls than there are TV screens, but you’re going there for the ambiance, great food and friendly staff, not for high definition.

This is also a safe bet if you have to bring the kids. 

Valley Brewing Company tucked in the Miracle Mile neighborhood at 157 Adams Street, (209) 464-2739.

The Graduate Restaurant & Bar

Speaking of children, The Graduate Restaurant & Bar is another place where kiddos are completely welcome. Arcade games lining the walls and family-style seating make it easy for youngsters to get up and play while mom and dad relax and watch the game.

Lots of draft beer makes this a great spot for game-day fun; the food is affordably priced, especially for small groups sharing pizza and pitchers.

You can hit this place up Saturday or Monday for some awesome drink specials during happy hour from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The Graduate Restaurant & Bar is located at 2207 Country Club Boulevard, (209) 463-1669.

Buffalo Wild Wings

We know, how commercial, but there is no place else in Stockton with as many high-definition screens dedicated to every sports team.

Normally we would advise against overexposure from some 12 billion pixels emitting from every square inch of this place, but for sports, the experience is unreal.

Catch every bead of sweat and all the games’ action surrounded by 360 degrees of TV madness. Plus, fans can experiment with more than a dozen ridiculous wing sauce flavors.

A full bar and plenty of draft beers round out the scene and ensure a good time with no hassle—it’s a franchise, after all; it’s a safe bet if you’re not sure where to go.

Buffalo Wild Wings is located at 4751 Pacific Avenue in the Target Shopping Center, (209) 478-4351.
