Best Sports Bar

Press Box

There was a day earlier this year that presented quite the quandary to sports fans. Saturday, May 2 featured NBA playoff games, NHL playoff games, the Kentucky Derby, a baseball rivalry game between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, a full slate of Premier League soccer from across the pond, the third day of the NFL draft and Manny Pacquiao taking on Floyd Mayweather in the so-called “fight of the century.” Unless you have a multi-television setup in your fan cave and an on-call caterer supplying all the bar food and drinks you can handle—and if you do, please can we be friends?—May 2 required some serious advance planning and all-star-level remote control skills. Or, for the seasoned veterans, it meant a trip to the reigning champion of local sports bars, The Press Box. With banks of TVs tuned to all the day’s games, a full menu of munchies and a fully stocked bar, The Press Box provides the easiest play call on a day like May 2. Press Box • 835 E.
