Underground Pub & Grill Hermosa Beach Reviews
The Best Sportsbar in Hermosa Beach Sep 22, 2009
With over 20 televisions, satellite reception, 15 beers on tap, a full service bar and restaurant, the Underground Pub and Grill in Hermosa Beach is one of the best places to watch college football on Saturdays and the NFL on Sundays. The televisions surround the bar area, booth tables have their own personal tvs and there are 4 big screen tvs against the wall. The beer selection here is great too. They have craft beers and microbrews on tap as well as every bottled beer imaginable. They also have a fully stocked bar, which is nice for bloody marys for the early games. The food is above average for you ordinary pub. Not just bar food here, but an assortment of sandwiches, salads, hot meals as well as burgers, hot wings and your standard fried foods. You can also find some healthy choices on their 4-page menu. The crowd is laid back. It’s about 2 blocks from the beach so most of the people head out in their boardshorts, t-shirts and flip-flops.
The Underground televises just about every sport you can imagine. Hockey, soccer, rugby, basketball, football, tennis are only a few of the sports. It is a unique place because it has no affiliation to 1 school or 1 pro team. Rather, it’s a place where people come to watch their favorite team(s) play. What’s even more entertaining is when people from opposing teams sit close to each other and trash talk with one another. It’s all friendly and not malicious and just adds to the overall vibe of the place. Different games are playing at the same time so different groups of people are cheering (or booing) all of the time. It’s great. The only draw back is that it’s hard to focus on the game that you went to watch.
The waiting staff is very nice and they make sure that you have plenty of drinks and food. The bartenders are also diplomatic with the games, making sure that everyone can watch their game on the closest tv to them. Also, no one hassles you about how long you’ve stayed at a table, so if you want to watch 1 game or 4, you’re more than welcome to. If you want to take a break from watching the games, there are dart boards and a pool table to occupy you time. Whatever your favorite team is or what your favorite game is, the Underground will be sure to please.
