You can go to a random sports bar and watch the game on TV, or you can go to Bleacher Bar and watch the game on the actual damn field. Despite the fact that this place is built underneath the centerfield bleachers at Fenway and gives you a direct view of Jackie Bradley Jr.’s back pocket, you don’t need a ticket to get in. That makes Bleacher Bar pretty much the coolest sports bar you’ll ever find, and worth visiting even if the only thing on the other side of the glass is a groundskeeper mowing the field.
