The LA Live sports bar mega-chain is a qualified bro-extravaganza, but whether you’re going to watch the game on TV or in person later at Staples across the street, Yard House is where it all begins. The food isn’t great (and will set you back a day’s worth of caloric intake), but the 100+ beer taps speak for themselves. Just eat beforehand and don’t get mad when you can’t find a seat.
