Firestone is easily one of the most popular places to watch a game and drink craft beer on the Westside, and has the crowds to prove it. The excellent beer list and solid bar food probably have something to do with it too. Their Venice space is massive, there are TVs everywhere you look, and those jerk chicken wings will personally speak to you. Getting a reservation for a big game wouldn’t be a terrible idea.
