Blue Haven is a big space right on Houston Street, so it’s a useful option when you’re looking for a convenient meeting place to watch ACC football, or something actually worth your time, like ACC basketball. But it’d be a good place to watch games no matter where it was located. It always tends to be the right amount of crowded, it has lots of TVs including one that’s seven feet across, and its floor-to-ceiling windows provide healthy reminders that Duke winning again isn’t, in fact, the end of the world.
