If you frequent the area, you’ll agree that Fenway has a pretty competitive bar scene. Many places have popped up to meet the demand of the crowds exiting Fenway Park after each home game. Whether the customers crave a victory round or a drink to quell their sorrows, Fenway bars fight to quench their thirst. However, only one bar can boast an in-house batting cage; Game On, right on Landsdowne.
A True Fenway Venue
Many bars and restaurants claim to be located on or near Fenway, but Game On’s location is unbeatable. The venue is literally a part of Fenway Park. Additionally, it’s right at the corner of Brookline Ave and historic Landsdowne St, so it’s by far the most convenient place to grab a bite and a brew after a game.
Even if you’re not lucky enough to have tickets, or if the Sox are away, you still have plenty of reason to go to Game On. With over 30 HD TV’s, you can watch whatever game is on from any vantage point in the building. You’ll never be stuck in a crowd trying to see one small screen at this hot location, so whatever team you’re rooting for (though we hope they’re from Boston), this is the place to be.
Beyond a Bar
Sure, you can go to any other sports bar, but only at Game On do you actually get to play sports. The two-floor venue features Killerspin ping pong tables, corn hole, and the Official Fenway Park Batting Cage. These additions make Game On much more than just another Boston sports bar. Also, the bar is perfect for corporate outings, holiday parties or reunions, all of which the venue is happy to host and help arrange.
Game On also brings in some of the best live entertainment. Great music is always pumping through the house, but this spot has pulled acts as big as Florida Georgia Line in the past.
Two Fun Filled Floors
Game On is a two-floor venue. Both floors have bars, so you’ll be attended to promptly! Order your favorite beer, or try one of the featured local brews. The bottom floor holds the games and rentable rooms in addition to Max and Leo’s restaurant. Max and Leo are local twins who have mastered the pizza game. Their crispy, coal-fired artisanal pies are perfect for any occasion. With everything from the classic Margherita to Jero’s pineapple, bacon and jalapeno pie, there is something for everybody. If you’re not into pizza, don’t fear; Max and Leo are also serving up bar bites, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wings. Food can be ordered on both floors.
The second floor extends the scene, but with even more TVs and seating. If you don’t want the hustle and bustle of the game area, this is the place to chill. But be warned; Game On is all about hustle and bustle, especially during watch parties, so be ready for that.
This venue has been hailed as the best place for a Sox watch party in all of Boston. Game On makes our Fenway Finds list for a reason; it’s more than just a sports bar. It’s a Boston experience.
