6 Places (Other Than Your Couch) to Watch the Bucks Playoffs

It’s time for the Eastern Conference Finals! Here’s where to watch the games.

1. Get Tickets to the Playoffs

1111 VEL R. PHILLIPS AVE. 

Really, it’s not too late! Witness the Bucks playoff against the Atlanta Hawks right on ground zero for a viewing experience like no other. Score tickets directly through the Bucks’ website, or scour the internet for some last-minute tickets.

2. Playoff Party on the Plaza

1111 VEL R. PHILLIPS AVE. 

The name’s a mouthful, but the idea isn’t. Simply show up to the Fiserv Plaza to enjoy a free, outdoor watch party with your fellow Bucks fans; no tickets, reservation or call ahead needed. Food, music, activities, and shopping will also be provided, making for an all-inclusive night of fun at the Bucks’ stomping grounds.

3. The Mecca Sports Bar

1134 N. VEL R. PHILLIPS AVE.

It’s not called The Mecca for no reason. With two floors, ample indoor and open-air seating, a two-story tall TV, and a central location in the Deer District, this sports bar is well worth the pilgrimage for Bucks fans. Toast to the Bucks with special “Fear the Deer” Riesling from Door Peninsula Winery, or enjoy the daily offerings of rotating drink specials ($4 Modelo drafts on Tuesdays), cheese curds, nachos, and the works – all while feeling the energy on the floor mix with the distant cheers and rumbles of the Fiserv.

4. Who’s On Third

1007 N. OLD WORLD 3RD ST. 

A classic sports bar by the Fiserv with a slightly more laid-back atmosphere, Who’s On Third has a generous supply of cheese curds, wings and brats, alongside plenty of flat screens (plus a projector) and a wide selection of on-tap beers. And don’t let the baseball-inspired name fool you; Who’s On Third is a proud member of the Bucks Bar Network.

5. Kelly’s Bleachers

5218 W. BLUEMOUND RD. 

A top-rated bar further away from the Fiserv (never hurts to avoid the crowds), Kelly’s Bleachers is a Brewers-themed sports bar with an evident love for all things Milwaukee. With a menu full of classic bar food, stadium-themed dishes like soft pretzels and corn dogs, balcony seating, pool tables and ample TVs to watch the game.

6. Major Goolsby’s

340 W. KILBOURN AVE. 

A Milwaukee fixture, Major Goolsby’s is an iconic spot for watching any Bucks, Brewers, or Panthers game. Just two blocks down from the Fiserv, the bar is perfectly situated far enough away from the action, and close enough to rush down to the stadium if need be. While there, enjoy their classic breaded wings, white cheddar cheese curds and on Thursdays, half-priced drinks as you watch the playoffs on more than 50 TVs.
