To almost everyone’s surprise. The Buccaneers have made it to the playoffs. Many people said they would only win 6 games this year, but they managed to pull off a 9-8 record. So now the time comes to decide if you want to splurge for tickets to the game, watch at home, or surround yourself with other Bucs fans at a local sports bar.

We get it, gas, game tickets, parking, and stadium beers are so expensive. If you plan on going to the game, be prepared to drop close to $300 on tickets, parking, food, and beer. To help save some money, we reviewed the best sports bars in Pinellas County according to Visit St.Pete/Clearwater and narrowed down our favorites to go watch a playoff football game. You won’t be finding Buffalo Wild Wings or Hooters on this list!

The Bucs are hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday, January 15 at Raymond James Stadium. To our surprise, tickets were decently affordable compared to the Brady Era. But still, we understand how financially rough it is out there. Plus it’s an even bigger hassle if you’re working on Monday and/or live in Pinellas and don’t want to deal with that Tampa traffic. Luckily, there are plenty of great sports bars all around Pinellas County. From St. Pete to Palm Harbor, there are plenty of places to catch the big game. If you ARE thinking about making it to the game, we have a handy hack that tells us when the best day to buy your tickets is.
