Max's Sports Bar
115 E. G.E. Patterson
Arguably the best sports bar in downtown Memphis, Max's is certainly the coziest.
This neighborhood bar is a great place to watch a game, with several high-definition televisions and a spirited crowd. But as Max's is on the small side, it fills up quickly, so get there early for a game to secure a seat.
Max's is frequented by lots of friendly locals and hosts various activities, such as movie nights, shrimp boils, and sports parties.
The menu offers mediocre bar food, but the price of beer and the friendly, if sometimes eccentric, atmosphere makes this hangout a winner with loyal patrons.
You can take your own liquor to this beer bar that stays open late on the weekends, and by the time you leave, everyone will know your name.
