Whether you're a die-hard Redskins fan, are loyal to the Eagles, or prefer to watch college games, Rosslyn is the perfect place to enjoy high-energy viewing at several neighborhood bars, restaurants and even a coffee shop. Read on for details of the best places to watch football this season.
At Barley Mac, you can catch all regular-season games, including those not being broadcast by local affiliates, so you can be sure to see your favorite team. The industrial chic restaurant has a spacious bar area where you can enjoy cocktails, wine, beer and a great selection of bourbons while munching on delicious apps or Sunday brunch, which is served until 3:30 p.m.
Located on North Moore St. close to the heart of Rosslyn, Central Coffee is a comfortable spot to watch football with your friends.

Watch the games in one of Central Coffee's soft chairs while you sip your latte and enjoy sandwiches and light snacks. In the evenings, Central Coffee serves a great selection of beer and wine, as well. This place has some of the best happy-hour pricing in the neighborhood and a wonderful, welcoming vibe.
