If you’re looking for places to cheer on the Red Wings with some fellow fans, we’ve got you covered!

Check out this list of the five best bars for Wings watching in Detroit, according to the NHL.


2301 Woodward Ave.
With a name like Hockeytown, it should come as no surprise that this place is decked out in Red Wings decor. And more than 50 beers from around the world, as well as premium root beer and non-alcoholic beer, guarantee you’ll never go thirsty.

Cheli’s Chili Bar 

47 E. Adams
What better place to watch the Wings than a bar owned by one of the team’s former defensemen, Chris Chelios? Watch games on one of the bar’s 36 flat screen TVs or pre-game there and take a shuttle to Joe Louis Arena.

Ciccarelli’s 22 Sports Bar

408 W. Congress St.
You’ll never miss a minute of Wings action at this sports bar, which has several HD theater projection screens and more than 40 HD big screen TVs. It’s also owned by a former Red Wings player: Dino Ciccarelli.

Sweetwater Tavern

400 E. Congress St.
Want to eat wings while watching the Wings? Then you’ve got to stop into this bar— they’re the house specialty. Sweetwater’s wings are marinated for 24 hours, dredged in spices and fried. Pro Tip: Order the spare ribs and get a full order of wings for free!

The Town Pump Tavern

100 W. Montcalm
With 18 beers on tap and a kitchen that’s open daily until 11 p.m. (except Christmas, because that’s the only day it’s closed), this bar has become one of the area’s most popular destinations.
