Ballard Loft has pulled out all the stops when it comes to showing each and every sport anyone could ever want to see. It’s what makes ours the best Ballard sports bar, hands down. Make us your sports-watching destination for major league and collegiate football and basketball, as well as major league baseball, soccer, hockey, golf, tennis, NASCAR and beyond.
The Loft is proud to be the only Ballard sports bar that shows all sports games, from NCAA football to the Olympics. We have all of the usual sports channels, including all ESPN, Fox Sports 1, and NBC Sports. In addition, we have SEC, BeIn, Universal, the Big 10 and Pac 12 – which is important for all of those local fans of the Huskies and Cougars!
We have put a lot of effort into getting flatscreen TVs (including a couple of HDTVs) installed throughout the restaurant and bar. We have TVs in all of the right places throughout the place, so that there isn’t a bad seat in the house – a pretty important feature for game days when the Loft is packed to overflowing! Additionally, we maintain accounts with all of the paid sports channels, to be sure we can show any game, match, or sporting event that our guests want to see.
And as you watch your favorite team battling for the win, you can enjoy tasty bites and the beverage specials that we offer at a discount on game day.
We show all preseason and normal season games, and the Loft gets especially busy during the postseason and playoffs! Here’s a general window for each sport’s playoff schedule:
- NFL Playoffs: January – February
- NCAA Football Playoffs: December – January
- NBA Playoffs: April – June
- WNBA Playoffs: March – April
