USA Today and ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell have compiled a list of the top ten sports bars in the United States, and a Minneapolis location is on their list.

Bar 508 on First Avenue made the list, commended for "offerings like buffalo chicken wontons and truffle asparagus" in the article.  "Even the drinks are a cut above," it continues.

Minnesotans may celebrate their inclusion on the list, but also resent that the neighbors to the east crashed the party - as Green Bay's Stadium View Bar and Grill is also on the list.

The top ten, as selected by the article authors:

  • Chappell's Restaurant and Sports Museum - Kansas City
  • Chatham Tap - Indianapolis
  • Ainsworth - New York City
  • Bar 508 - Minneapolis
  • Chickie's & Pete's - Philadelphia
  • Lagasse's Stadium - Las Vegas
  • Stadium View Bar & Grill - Green Bay
  • Don & Charlie's - Scottsdale
  • The Cubby Bear - Chicago
  • STATS - Atlanta
