Cheer on your favorite team, beer and wings in hand

New Wave Cafe in Queen Village has outdoor tables and TVs.

Fall brings prime sports-watching season to Philadelphia as football takes over TVs on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays through the winter. Even for those who aren’t into the Eagles, sports like soccer and baseball continue well into the colder months, allowing for food- and drink-fueled watch parties for all sports fans. This year, a number of Philly-area bars and restaurants have set up televisions and projectors outside for watching games outdoors throughout the season, beer and wings in hand.

With the capacity limitations at Philadelphia restaurants, it’s a good idea to check if outdoor seating requires a reservation before showing up.

A number of Philadelphia restaurants have resumed dine-in service. The level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns. For updated information on coronavirus cases locally, visit the City of Philadelphia website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with sidewalk and patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
