PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) — Football season is upon us. For many, that means congregating around televisions or attending games in person. For others, football season is a time to hang out at a local sports bar.
Our partners at The Pueblo Chief has compiled a list of locally owned places where fans can watch games across the Steel City.
CaT’s Pourhouse Pub & Grill
This sports bar, located in Pueblo West, has nearly 30 televisions to give everyone in the restaurant a good view of what’s happening on the field. Owner Coleen Guidry told the Pueblo Chieftain they serve everything from blackened salmon to chicken tenders.
During Broncos games, Guidry says CaT raffles off items like jerseys, footballs, gift baskets, and more. To keep their customers safe, Guidry says they also hire designated drivers.
You can visit CaT’s Pourhouse Pub & Grill at 147 Tiffany Dr, Pueblo West, CO 81007.
The city bar and grill
As it approaches its first anniversary, the City Bar and Grill said it has become a favorite place for many to watch the Colorado Avs’ journey to their Stanley Cup title.
Now, manager Morgan Mattarocci told the Pueblo Chieftain she hopes to see even greater turnout for the football season.
“We have NFL promotions… You can do 16 wings and a bucket (five beers) for $25 or a pizza and a bucket for $25,” Mattarocci told the Pueblo Chieftain. “You can do all three for $45.”
The specials aren’t just for NFL games, Mattarocci said, The City will be offering similar deals at Colorado State University-Pueblo games.

Usually closed on Sundays and Mondays, the First Round Draft Pub and Restaurant is ideal for those looking to cheer on their alma mater during college football games.
In addition to daily food and drink deals, First Round Draft offers people the chance to hang out and enjoy the outdoor cornhole before a game airs on one of the bar’s five TVs.
Cole McCarthy, the restaurant’s assistant manager, told the Pueblo Chieftain that they plan to open for Sunday football this fall.

There, people can enjoy Tundra Limeade, an alcoholic cherry lemonade named after the late and great ThunderWolf mascot, Tundra.
“It’s a rock environment,” owner Ryan Howard told The Pueblo Chieftain. “We do a lot on college game day, especially for CSU Pueblo because we’re right across the street, but also on Sundays, it’s pretty full here…we show all the Broncos games, well. sure, with the sound on…we can put on pretty much any game if they want to watch.”
