Where To Watch The Wild

Where To Watch The Wild

We can’t all be season ticket holders, but we can be pretend to be at these bars.

The NHL just means more in the State of Hockey, where we live for the goals, breakaways and fights that are guaranteed to happen. If you're not lucky enough to be at the X (or it’s an away game), here are some great spots to catch the game.

Billy’s on Grand

While Billy’s patio might be your summertime chill out, we don’t expect to see you out there once the temperatures drop. The restaurant inside, however, makes a great Wild headquarters for you and your friends. The bar offers different specials each night and a few extra steals during the game.

Sweet Pea’s

Called "the friendliest pub in Saint Paul", Sweet Pea's is a cozy restaurant tucked away in the Highland Park neighborhood. There's something going on every night and TVs lining every wall. 

Eagle Street Grille

A stone's throw from Xcel, Eagle Street is always hopping on game night. They're even known to offer the occasional Wild game drink special to help save some of your hard-earned cash while you watch the action. 

Tiffany Sports Lounge

Tiff's might be known as an all-out college, Packer and Kansas bar during the week, but it's an all-out Minnesota hockey bar on Wild game days. 

Herbie's on the Park

Although Herbie's on the Park can feel more upscale than your typical sports bar, hockey fans will feel at home in a bar named for Saint Paul's own Herb Brooks of 1980 Olympic hockey fame (his Olympic ring is on display). 

Obb's Sports Bar

An Eastside staple, you'll find longtime regulars and new visitors hanging around at Obb's Sports Bar. Make sure you try the Cuban. 

New Bohemia

New Bohemia's selection of sausages and brews pack a serious punch—so serious that they have their own penalty box...only in the State of Hockey. 

Seventh Street Truck Park

Connected to New Bohemia is West 7th's hottest new funhouse—Seventh Street Truck Park. Grab a bite from one of five different food trucks and cheers a brew in your very own Stanley Cup stein (also available at New Bohemia). 

Tom Reid's Hockey City Pub

You didn’t seriously think we’d leave this one off the list, did you? Just two blocks from Xcel Energy Center, Tom Reid's is packed before, during and after every game. Come ready to show your Wild spirit— it's owned by former Minnesota North Stars defenseman Tom Reid and you’ll be amazed by how much hockey memorabilia fits into one bar. Don’t be surprised if you run into some former or current players—this is THE hockey bar of the Twin Cities.

Blessed with a ticket and looking for somewhere to pregame (and park)? The following restaurants offer shuttles to and from the Xcel Energy Center:
