Catch the Big Game With a Brewski at Crystal City Sports Pub

August 19, 2015 12:54 pm

In 1994, three alumni of Mount St. Mary's began to notice a void in the Arlington bar scene. The city was in need of a watering hole for weekend athletes as well as working professionals, a place not only to relax after a long day of work, but to also catch the big game on weekends.

So when a hardware store on 23rd Street went out of business, the trio jumped at their chance to create the sports bar of their dreams. After 20 years and many expansions, the Crystal City Sports Pub is now two stories high, features multiple bars, and over 30 flat screens. Among their televisions are one 10 foot and two 8 foot projection screens.

Fans of the community watering hole often gather here to catch a game, play pool, or try their hand at the video games scattered around the bar. Like any good sports bar, there's plenty of beer on tap and apps, burgers, and sandwiches on the menu. If you want to watch your team on a 10 foot screen, stop in for a pint and see what you've been missing.
