The Packers may be Wisconsin's team, but everyone knows that the love for the green and gold survives and thrives far outside the state's borders – whether it's cheeseheads needing a place to watch the Pack during their cross-country travels or Packer backers who now call somewhere else home but still call Lombardi's crew their home team. But in order to feed that fandom's fire, these fans across the land need to be able to watch their team – preferably surrounded by their fellow Packers faithful. 

In order to do our Packers duty and help out our fellow fans, with the help of the Packers Everywhere resource and fan clubs from sea to shining sea, we've compiled this list of 50 Green Bay bars scattered across all 50 states – and even beyond. Now, since we're limiting ourselves to just one key bar per state, this is by no means a comprehensive list – and depending on the state and its available options, the definition of a Packers bar might change, from a true Packers hangout to a place that at worst seems welcoming to Wisconsinites. But hopefully, with this list, no matter where you are in America, you won't be without America's true team – and friendly fans to cheer them on.

Here are 50 Packers bars across the U.S. – and then some.


The Casual Pint
2 Off Broadway Street NW
Huntsville, Alabama 35806

It may be Crimson Tide country, but this Huntsville bar is awash in green and gold with Packers-colored decor (including a Green Bay flag, so it's not just a coincidence) and a menu featuring Sconnie staples like cheese curds and Johnsonville brats – sometimes $2 off in honor of its Packers Sunday watch parties.


Crossroads Lounge
1402 Gambell St.
Anchorage, Alaska 99501

According to the Anchorage Daily News, the Crossroads Lounge is "truly a Packers bar" with a crowd of green and gold faithful gathering for each game – proving that, even at the top of the world, you can find a Packers bar. Another popular recommendation, though, is The Peanut Farm – though that apparently brings in fans of all franchises, most notably New Orleans. They also claim to have invented the Duck Fart shot so ... there's that as well. 


The Stadium Club
940 N Alma School Rd #109
Chandler, Arizona 85224

It may not feel much like Packers atmosphere outside this Arizona bar, but inside it's pure Lambeau love. As the home of the AZ Pack fan club, The Stadium Club offers gameday food and drink specials, raffles and Wisconsin favorites like brats and cheese curds on menu. But who cares about cheese curds when The Stadium Club occasionally offers "kickoff cheese," a special little bite of cheese given to everyone as a pregame snack. That's commitment to cheesiness and cheesehead-ery that makes Wisconsin proud.


2221 W. Walnut St.
Rogers, Arkansas 72756

Unfortunately, while Packers Everywhere points out a few bars in Arkansas as Packers hangouts, an investigation into them reveals very little green and gold to report. But with a patio, food and lots of TV screens, Foghorn's seems like our kind of dive – and while it doesn't look too Sconnie-centric, surely you can find some Arkansas Razorbacks fans to complain about Bret Bielema with.


Mom's Bar
12238 Santa Monica Blvd.
Los Angeles, California 90025

If you're in Los Angeles, the Packers hangout you'll want to hit is Mom's Bar, the self-proclaimed "Southern California home of the Green Bay Packers" with the giant inflatable Packers player out front, Packers shots at halftime, free brats and a whole tab dedicated to the Packers on their website to prove it. However, if you find yourself further north in California in Steve Young territory (a shame), check out Local Tap, which will very much feel like your local tap back home on gameday with the Pack on the screens, your fellow fans surrounding you, a solid cheese curd game and green Jell-O shots for touchdowns. That's two bars for one!


Swanky’s Vittles and Libations
1938 Blake St.

Denver, CO 80202

Colorado used to have one of the finest Packers bars in the Rocky Flats Lounge, a beloved hangout with all the games and even a Wisconsin fish fry. Unfortunately, a fire in wiped out the bar in 2015, and though it tried a comeback recently, it's been replaced by the similarly named (but not quite as similarly cheesehead-approved) Rocky Flats Bar & Grill. The spirit of the original lives on, though, as the Rocky Flats Lounge Facebook page keeps Packers fandom alive – as well as hopes for a rebirth of the bar. So root for that – and, in the meantime, root for the Pack at fan favorite Swanky's Vittles and Libations, an official Packer Backers bar in Bronco country. How do you know it's an official Packer Backers bar? In addition to hosting Badgers and Packers watch parties complete with giveaways, Sconnies drank it dry a few years ago.


Maloney's Publick House
676 W. Main St. 
Meriden, CT, 06451

The Northeast is unkind to Packers fans – or the bars they patron. There was once Callahan's Cafe in New Haven for Green Bay fans to unite ... but that closed. Then there was Brennan's Shebeen, another popular Packers fan hangout that went the way of the Detroit Lions' playoff hopes and died. Packers Everywhere lists a few Pack-friendly Connecticut bars, but they all have about the same level of green and gold – which is to say pretty much none. But according to a Google review from just two years ago, Maloney's is "a great place to watch the Green Bay Packers!" Well, that's exactly why we're here – so you're on the list!


McGlynn's Pub
8 Polly Drummond Shopping Ctr
Newark, Delaware 19711

Credit to Delaware: The state gave us safety Darnell Savage, who went to high school and perfected his defensive skills in the Diamond State. And a certain former Delaware senator is a noted Packers fan! Unfortunately, that doesn't mean they give us a lot of Packers bar options, with none of the Packers Everywhere options sporting much Green Bay spirit. The Northeast strikes again! Considering the other two are overtly Eagles bars on their Facebook pages, I'll roll with McGlynn's thanks to their green and yellow logo – though your best bet might be to just roll right on through Delaware on your travels.

District of Columbia

Hamilton's Bar & Grill
233 2nd St. NW
Washington D.C. 20001

Washington's a divisive place these days, but there's nothing but unity at Hamilton's – as long as you're rocking a cheesehead. A Packers HQ for most of a decade, this bar united people of all parties for the best party: Lambeau on the Hill, a Green Bay fan group that claims this D.C. bar as Packers territory during the big games with plenty of specials including brats and curds. Who cares about left or right when you're all gathered under the green and gold?


Slackers Bar & Grill
995 Marina Mile Blvd
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33315

Considering no one in Florida is from Florida, much less roots for Florida sports teams, it shouldn't surprise you that Packers bars are a popular sight. Parrot Key in Fort Myers earns credit for a gameday menu with Wisconsin favorites and a dedication to gameday that's earned them the name "Lambeau South," while if you're in Fort Lauderdale, no one does it up like Slackers, which claims to be the largest Packers bar in the state. Considering they have a cheesehead in their logo, multiple menu items specifically labeled as Wisconsin favorites, Korbel brandy old fashioneds at the bar, special events – including end-of-season raffles that in past seasons gave away Spotted Cow beer and even a custom Packers car hood – and a video shoutout from official Wisconsin ambassador Charlie Berens, we tend to believe them.


The Ivy Buckhead
3717 Roswell Rd
Atlanta, Georgia 30342

The University of Georgia Bulldogs logo is essentially the dark and gritty reboot of the Packers logo, so of course there's Green Bay bars in Georgia. Unfortunately, TJ's Sports Bar & Grill, the former host for the Atlanta Green Bay Packer Club, was one of the casualties of the pandemic. But while the old stomping grounds may be gone, Green Bay fandom always lives on as the Atlanta Packer Backers list several solid alternatives – including The Ivy Buckhead, which helped take over the great honor of official fan group hosting duties with Packers drink and food specials, touchdown shots, a raffle and a whole bunch of partying around the Packers. 


Quinn’s Almost By the Sea
75-5655 Palani Rd.
Kailua Kona, Hawaii 96740

Even far, far away from the mainland, you can still get your Packers fix, as Quinn's Almost By the Sea claims the title of the southernmost official Packers bar in the United States with regular viewing parties with your fellow snowbirds in a fully decked-out Green Bay bungalow. More evidence that while you can escape the Midwestern cold, as Kirk Cousins knows all too well, you can never escape the Packers. 


Hyde Park Pub & Grill
1501 N. 13th St.
Boise, ID 83702

Boise may be most famous for its blue football field, but it turns out they've got some love for the Frozen Tundra as well with this pub. Its fandom is noted in multiple Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews – and now even in the official Boise press – as a fun and active Packers bar, complete with cheese curds on the menu, Green Bay gear above the bar and a hearty "Go Pack Go" on its Facebook post tauting its Sunday specials. One particular comment says, "Do not go here if you aren't a Packers fan on game day," which might as well be a Bat signal for Packer fans.


Will’s Northwoods Inn
3030 N. Racine Ave.
Chicago, IL 60657

If you're trapped in Bears country for a Packers game, well, I feel terrible for you – but thankfully, hope is not lost. Will's Northwoods Inn can be your green and gold oasis in a desert of double doinks, serving up a up-north-themed menu of tasty bar foods – including Sconnie favorites like cheese curds and a "Badger burger" – and Sunday drink deals that draw in plentiful Packers fans to celebrate the team's latest win over Chicago and laugh together about Justin Fields.


The District Tap
3720 E. 82nd St.
Indianapolis, Indiana 46240

Oddly enough, for a close Midwestern neighbor, true Green Bay Packers bars are difficult to track down in Indiana. There is, however, an active and enthusiastic Indy Packer Backers group that's been calling this cozy Indianapolis pub home in recent years. That's undoubtedly your best bet.


Alpine Tap Room
2720 Ingersoll Ave.
Des Moines, Iowa, 50312

You can't find a more Wisconsin-friendly bar in Iowa than Wisco Grub & Pub – but unfortunately you can't find that bar, period, any more as the Sconnie-inspired hangout made like the Iowa Hawkeyes football team's offense and disappeared off the map forever late last year. Thankfully, though, Iowa still offers a few Packers paradises such as the Alpine Tap Room, which was recommended on a Reddit thread about Packers destinations around Des Moines and indeed comes with a Packers-friendly sign out front greeting the green and gold. 


Coach's Bar & Grill
9089 W. 135th St.
Overland Park, Kansas 66221

Jordy Nelson is no longer be with us (OK, he's retired not dead, Matt; pump the breaks on the melodrama) and a few years ago, his family's restaurant/shrine in his hometown of Leonardville unfortunately joined him as a piece of Packers past. Without that hive of Jordy jubilation, Kansas is sadly pretty much flyover country for Packers fans – though we did find a Yelp convo that began with a Coach's recommendation and ended with both a satisfied Packer-loving customer and a dismayed Vikings fan. I call that interaction a 1000% success.


Saints Pizza and Pub
131 Breckenridge Lane
Louisville, Kentucky 40207

Don't be fooled by Saints being in the name; this bar and restaurant has been where the official Louisville Packer Backers fan club meets for games – so much so that the upstairs Skybox area becomes the Lambeau Loft


American Sports Saloon
1200 Decatur St.
New Orleans, Louisiana 70116

Packers Everywhere and some online reviews list Saints & Sinners as a Green Bay bar ... but it has Saints in the name. In New Orleans. Come on now. Also: a cursory glance at its Facebook page reveals very little Packers action. Also also: It's created by Channing Tatum – and as much as we love "21 Jump Street," Saints & Sinners seems more "Magic Mike" than Mike Holmgren Way. So we nominate American Sports Saloon, which has "sports" right there in the name and which the Packers Everywhere Fans of New Orleans Facebook group calls home.


Hero's Sports Grill
41 Washington St.
Bangor, Maine 04401

The Northeast is the least yet again. While Packers Everywhere includes three Packers bars in the state, none seem very active on the Packer backing front. But here's a random bit of history: In 1959, the city of Bangor paid the Packers and Giants to play an exhibition game in honor of the city's 125th anniversary. (It was a very different time.) So maybe pay tribute to this odd bit of trivia by visiting Hero's Sports Grill in Bangor, home of the most random Packers game in history.


All American Steakhouse
1502 Annapolis Rd.
Odenton, Maryland 21113

Crab may be the star in Maryland, but you can still find plenty of cheese in the Old Line State – or at least cheeseheads. The fan group Maryland Cheeseheads meets to watch the Pack's latest spat at All American Steakhouse, which occasionally offers drink specials as well as bratwurst during Green Bay games. And if some reason you're not craving brats, you're in a steakhouse – so you're eating well no matter what.


The Banshee
934 Dorchester Ave.
Boston, Massachusetts 02125

You'd think if there was one place in the dreaded Northeast that would be desolate for Packers fans, it'd be Bill Belichick territory. And yet, if you head over to this Green Bay Packers Reddit thread, you'll find seven supposed Packers bars – headlined by the highly recommended The Banshee, which is the Boston fan group's meeting spot of choice complete with weekly raffles. Take that, Bill Belichick; get a hoodie with proper sleeves. 


The Sports Bar - Westside
5510 Jackson Rd.
Ann Arbor, MI 48103

Unfortunately, Lions country is far less generous to Packers fans than the Lions are on the field to Green Bay. According to the Detroit area Packers fan group, they used to go to a place called Norm's, but the Packer backers all got kicked out – probably because the Lions fans were jealous of all the winning we get to watch. Then they moved to Bailey's, which sadly was a local business casualty of the pandemic. And after another year of nomadic living, our green and gold loyalists across the lake found House of Shamrocks ... which must not have been too lucky, though, because they're once again on the search for a new home. One fan, though, recommends this Ann Arbor locale, so that's likely your best bet ... if you can handle all the Harbaugh heads around that part of the mitten.


Stadium Bar and Grill
207 N. Washington Ave.
Minneapolis, Minnesota 55401

Stuck in Vikings territory and need a place to watch the Packers game and make fun of the Skol chant in peace? Head on over to Stadium Bar and Grill, which brings in plenty of the green and gold faithful to watch the game, enjoy its Sunday specials and talk about how cool it is to have actually won a Super Bowl. How can I confirm it's the ideal spot for Packer fans in Viking land? One of its Google reviews, courtesy of a Minnesota fan, notes how disappointing it was to see a Packers logo hanging up. And he still gave it four stars! Even a Vikings fan can't deny Stadium Bar and Grill's quality.


Broke Spoke
6358 Kiln-Picayune Rd.
Kiln, Mississippi 39556

The Broke Spoke barely qualifies as Packers bar – at this point, it's more of a Saints hang – and heck, it barely even qualifies as a bar. It's more of a shack with drinks in it. But for Packers fans, it's still pretty much a requisite visit thanks to the most famous man to come from Kiln, Mississippi: Brett Favre, who made the bar famous along with his family during his gunslinger days. The bar still has plenty of Packers pride throughout it as well, from green and gold barstools to signs on the walls – plus the bartenders and owners have plenty of stories from Favre's glory days to share. So it's not just a bar; it's more like the oddest, grimiest museum you've ever been able to drink in.


Hotshots Sports Bar & Grill
1239 S. Laclede Station Rd.
Webster Groves, Missouri 63119

St. Louis no longer has a football team of their own, so why not become Packers fans?! Sure, the currently only Missouri football team may have gone to the Super Bowl several times in recent years and even won one – but who's that trophy named after again? And who beat the Chiefs in the first Super Bowl? THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT! Anyways, the St. Louis Packer Backers fan group was ahead of the curve, showing up for the Pack in the Show-Me State – in particular at Hotshots Sports Bar & Grill in Webster Groves, where you'll find raffles, specials and fellow fans. It's a delightful Packers-friendly setup so nice, you'll almost forget that you're probably amongst St. Louis Cardinals fans.


Desperado Sports Tavern
3101 S. Russell St.
Missoula, MT 59801

Bullwinkle's Saloon & Eatery had a backstory behind its Green Bay backdrop involving some Wisconsin-set meet-cutes, family roots and more – but in late 2021, the previous owners called it a career and retired. As a result, we're not quite sure if Bullwinkle's still brings the green and gold to Yellowstone with Packers love on its walls and in its seats – so we're pivoting to Desperado Sports Tavern, which came highly recommended to a Packers fan in need in Missoula and, worse comes to worst, is the self-proclaimed "king of wings."


Keystone Tavern & Grill
7821 Military Ave.
Omaha, NE 68134

Danny's Bar & Grill was "Omaha's official Green Bay Packers bar for more than 30 years ... until it was recently sold, renamed and rebranded, because apparenty the new ownership has something against WINNING FOOTBALL. Thankfully, there's now Keystone Tavern & Grill to serve as your Packers haven, complete with solid Packers-praising Google reviews and an owner who was apparently actually at Super Bowl II.


Rum Runner Lounge
1801 E. Tropicana Ave.
Las Vegas, Nevada

You don't need luck if you're looking for a Packers bar in Las Vegas. You just need to know where to look – and look no further than the Rum Runner Lounge, which gathers big crowds for Packers games and on occasion, to complete the Sconnie experience, cook up hot dogs and brats at halftime for a true tailgate vibe. Hopefully the welcome atmosphere didn't change when the Las Vegas Raiders come to town, gave the city its own team and STOLE OUR STAR RECEIVER – but considering the original owner called Tomah home, we figure the odds are in our favor.

New Hampshire

Paddy’s An American Grille
27 International Dr.
Portsmouth, New Hampshire 03801

Ah, the Northeast – the "Mad Max: Fury Road"-esque wasteland for Packers fans. New Hampshire is no different, but at least according to Packers Everywhere, there's Paddy's An American Grille. Now, a glance at the bar and restaurant's Facebook page shows no sign of Packers pride, but they have beer, food and TV screens – and for Packer fans stuck in the desert of options that is the Northeast, that's enough.

New Jersey

Blue 42
158 Market St.
Elmwood Park, New Jersey 07407

Blue may be in the name, but this Jersey bar bleeds green and gold – even if their favorite quarterback has moved out to their time zone and switched his shade of green. Even before stepping in, there's a Packers banner and flag greeting you outside – and then inside, you'll find crowds of fellow Green Bay backers as well as plenty of gear and memorabilia scattered across the walls, the game on all the TVs and an outdoor patio resplendent in green and gold. Because who else are you going to watch in New Jersey: the Giants?

New Mexico

Howie’s Sports Page
12500 Montgomery Blvd NE, Ste 133
Albuquerque, New Mexico 87111

Surely there's no Packers bars in New Mexico, right? Wrong, strawman argument I've created in the name of a blurb opening! There's Howie's Sports Page, which proudly shows off a Green Bay gathering watching the game on its Facebook photo gallery, features plenty of Packer decor on its walls and is included on Packers Everywhere. Plus, on Sundays, there are deals on Bloody Marys and Jello shots, in case you need more convincing.

New York

Kettle of Fish
59 Christopher St.
New York, New York 10014

According to its website, this NYC neighborhood pub was a hangout for Jack Kerouac and Bob Dylan. But who cares about those guys, because more importantly, it's now a hotspot for Packers fans looking to watch the big game in the Big Apple. Plus it's owned by a Sconnie transplant, so it's authentic green and gold, full with the Green Bay faithful – including Cheesehead TV's Aaron Nagler and their fans! – and fully decked out in Packers decor (as well as Brewers gear if you're looking for a place to catch the Crew on the road as well).

North Carolina

Blackfinn Ameripub Ballantyne
14825 Ballantyne Village Way #100
Charlotte, NC 28277

Two floors of Pack Attack awaits you at the Blackfinn Ameripub at Ballantyne, the home base for the Charlotte Packers fan club – which invades both the upstairs and patio on Sundays, complete with the occasional giveaway and raffle. An bonus shoutout, though, to the Foggy Mountain Brewpub in Asheville as well, which proudly carries the G in its profile pic while also throwing Sunday Fundays. So while it may be North Carolina, considering these options, it might as well be South Green Bay.

North Dakota

Joey’s Sports Bar
16 S. Main St.
Crosby, North Dakota 58730

According to the map, Joey's Sports Bar looks about as close to Canada as you can get. But whether you're in North Dakota or Wisconsin, the United States or Canada, you're in Packers country – that's at least the case at Joey's Sports Bar, which is Packers Everywhere approved with German potato salad and brats on the gameday menu plus green and gold adorning the walls. OK, that last part might also be in honor of the North Dakota State Bison college sports teams, who also rock the green and yellow ... but no matter the case, you won't look out of place in a Packers jersey! I mean, look at that banner photo on the Facebook page!


On Tap Pub
1514 Bethel Rd.
Columbus, Ohio

There's some word on the internet of Rhinehaus in Cincinnati representing the Pack well as an official Packers hangout, so if you're in that part of Ohio, give that soccer-heavy spot a shot. However, we'll tag the On Tap Pub as the pick here, partly because of the many Google reviews that note its Packers cheer – with the Packers gear and decor to prove it – partly because it's the official bar of the Buckeye Packer Backers and mostly because that fan group's website describes its history at this little Columbus dive in such illustrious terms ...  even though it's just the tale of a guy telling another guy to get satellite television.


Remingtons Sports Bar
1902 E. 71st St.
Tulsa, Oklahoma 74136

Generally speaking, hotel bars are nothing to get excited about, places to quick grab a drink when you're on the road and feeling tired – or at least not feeling particularly adventurous. Remingtons is an exception, however – as long as you're a Packers fan. Tucked inside the Tulsa Southern Hills Marriott, the bar is the home base for the city's Packers Backers club, who throw a proper parking lot tailgate to kick off the season. 


1004 N. Killingsworth St.
Portland, Oregon 97217

Portland is a very trendy town – and over the past decade, a Wisconsin-themed bar has been one of its trendiest spots, serving up tasty craft brews, cheese curds, pasties and, most importantly, the Green Bay game every Sunday, complete with a healthy crowd of Packer Backers cheering on the good guys even early on West Coast time in a green and gold decked tavern. They even made their own cheesehead pins!


1100 Chestnut St.

Philadelphia, PA 19107

Of course the place named after dairy would be a Packers bar. This two-floor Philly bar has become such a Green Bay faithful favorite that it has its own Facebook fan group – and considering there are drink specials, cheese curds and chili cheese dogs, you can see why! And if you're lactose intolerant to MilkBoy, there's another fan group – Green Bay Packers Phans in Philly – that often assembles for games at Pub & Kitchen, complete with $5 Miller Lite and High Life. Pennsylvania may have two football teams in it, but it's clearly the team in Wisconsin that has its heart. 

Rhode Island

Buffalo Wild Wings
400 Bald Hill Rd.
Warwick, Rhode Island

So here's some sad news: There's no Packers bar in Rhode Island. Not even Packers Everywhere has one listed. Even by the cruel standards of the Northeast, it's a Packers purgatory. Then again, there's barely enough room for people in tiny little Rhode Island, much less a Packers bar. There are two Buffalo Wild Wings locations, though, so ... uh, there's that. Improve, Rhode Island. You're like the Green Bay special teams unit of Packers hangouts. 

South Carolina

203-B N. Goose Creek Blvd
Goose Creek, South Carolina 29445

Looking for a green and gold gem in South Carolina? Look no further than Sapphire's, which sports multiple online reviews praising its Packers-ness, Packers gear on the walls and, of course, the game on its TV screens. Plus, any place with this image as its Facebook header photo is a friend of ours. They're kicking off this upcoming season with a cheese curd-stuffed burger – which doesn't have anything to do with the Packers, perhaps but does just sound really tasty and speaks to my soul.

South Dakota

The Schnitz
217 S. 5th St.
Menno, South Dakota 57045

Decked out with Packers flags and decor across its walls, if you find yourself in South Dakota for a big game, The Schnitz is the place to go. Also: It's called "The Schnitz."


J's Sports Grill
1200 Lakeview Drive
Franklin, TN 37067

We were all Titans fans when they played (AND BEAT!) the Patriots in the playoffs that one year – but that was a long time ago now, and we're all full-heartedly backing the Pack again. And if you're looking for the sweet sound of fellow cheering cheeseheads in Music City, head over to J's Sports Grill inside the Franklin Family Entertainment Center – the official home of the Nashville Packer Backers.


Benders Sports & Spirits
300 N. Coit Rd. Suite 130
Richardson, TX 75287

For more than 30 years, Vernon's was the the hangout for Dallas-based Packers fanatics – but unfortunately, the bar closed. Somehow this feels like Jerry Jones' fault. But when one bar door closes, another opens – the door to Benders in particular, which has taken up the task for Green Bay fans in the area, serving as the official meeting place and party spot for the North Texas Cheddarheads fan group. (Or maybe they should be called the Quesoheads?) Complete with raffles, specials ... an appearance from Bubba Franks last season?! If you're looking for another option, there's also Blackfriar Pub, the Sunday home of the Dallas Packers Fans Facebook group and a horrifyingly massive Wisconsin-inspired bloody Mary.


Fiddler’s Elbow
1063 E. 2100 S
Salt Lake City, Utah 84106

Surprise: Utah's not quite a bar haven. However, I dipped into some horrifying waters – aka a Minnesota Vikings Reddit thread – where they were complaining about how Fiddler's Elbow featured a large contingency of Packers fans for a recent game. And is that a Packers flag I see hanging from the ceiling in this photo? And some Packers fans gathered in another? I may be stretching here – but it's Utah. You gotta work with what you've got.


Finnigan's Pub
205 College St.
Burlington, Vermont 05401

Remember how the Northeast is a wasteland for Packers fans? Welp, that continues into Vermont, which doesn't have any particularly dedicated Packer Backer bars – and not even any Green Bay players past or present to give me a reason to say, "Check out a Buffalo Wild Wings in this little hamlet." Packers Everywhere lists four Packers bars, but one is a hostel and none feature any particular Packers cheer on their Facebook pages or official websites. So if I had to choose one (and I've come too far to give up on this article's conceit now), I'd go with Finnigan's because, hey, it's an Irish pub and Ireland loves green so ... that's something?


Lucky Oyster
2165 General Booth Blvd STE 154
Virginia Beach, VA

Virginia used to have a terrific Packers bar in the form of Mackie's – but unfortunately that Green Bay hang closed for the final time in August 2022. And that leaves us ... frankly, not much. What do you think you are, Virginia: the northeast!? According to both Packers Everywhere and, this seafood hot spot has been a respectable place to watch the Packers, tied for the most fan views on the latter's site – but it's a stretch and seafood isn't exactly famous Packer-backing fuel. So maybe you're better off just crossing the border to D.C. and hanging out at Hamilton's.


Mustard Seed 
5608 119th Ave SE
Bellevue, Washington 98006

Stuck in Seahawks country? Kessler's in Seattle was formerly your safe haven with its Green Bay watch party hangout – complete with Packers gear decking the bar and all sorts of Wisconsin sports on their television screens. Unfortunately, Kessler's closed and was replaced by KJ's – which said in an article that it doesn't want to leave its former "midwestern watering hole friendliness behind." Whether that means it's still a Packers bar, though, has yet to be seen – so for now, when it comes to watching the green and gold in Emerald City, we (and several commenters) recommend Mustard Seed. The  Northwest Packer Backers fan club calls this place its HQ, featuring lots Sconnie menu staples, raffles and beer specials at their watch parties. Seems like the perfect place to show The 12th Man what a real fan section sounds like.

West Virginia

Mountaineer Sports Lounge
3224 E. Cumberland Rd.
Bluefield, West Virginia 24701

Listen, things are sparse in West Virginia for Packers fans, as Packers Everywhere lists a whole two Packers bars. Somehow, there's barely any Packers bars between not one but two Virginias in this country. That's practically Jaguars-esque! Anyways, of the remaining two locales, your best bet is the Mountaineer Sports Lounge, which is mainly a bowling alley. Because while it's not much of a Packers headquarters, what's more Sconnie than bowling?


Are you serious?

If it's a bar in Wisconsin, it's a Packers bar – though if you need some guidance, here you go.


1180 Oildale St.
Evansville, Wyoming 82636

Wyoming is the second least densely populated state in the union, with only six citizens per square mile – making Packers bars just as sparse. Packers Everywhere has a few options, with your best bet being Butch's Bar aka Butch's Happy Days. Is that a reference to a famous TV show that takes place in Wisconsin? I'm going to say yes. 

Across the globe

Husitská 3, 130 00
Prague, Czech Republic

As you'd expect from a country with such excellent taste in cheese, France had a popular Packers bar in Wos Bar – but sadly it has closed. But that wasn't your only option looking for cheeseheads abroad. Say hello to BARFuD in the Czech Republic, which has Packers games on its TVs and even a whole wall mural dedicated to Wisconsin sports and the state in general ... including references to Drink Wisconsinbly and the Tavern League? That's commitment to the bit! Clearly, it's a place where even if you don't know the native language, everyone speaks fluent Packers.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
