Sports Events and Highlights at Ballard Loft
As Ballard’s best sports bar – voted so time and time again – we stay in tune with all of the happenings in sports events, both local, national and international (if they’re big enough). While you watch your team or sport of choice at The Loft, don’t miss out on our rotating specials and classic Loft favorites in food and drink…
We’re getting close to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and you can bet that we’ll be tracking the games through to the Championship. This weekend, the Chicago Blackhawks will be playing the Minnesota Wild, the Anaheim Ducks will fight the L.A. Kings, the Boston Bruins will play the Montreal Canadiens, and the Pittsburgh Penguins will square off against the New York Rangers. It’s going to be a mad fight to earn the NHL championship!
March Madness is over, but the basketball frenzy continues through mid-May with the NBA Playoffs! In the west, the San Antonio Spurs are set to fight the Portland Trail Blazers and Los Angeles Clippers will play the Oklahoma City Thunder. In the east, the Indiana Pacers and the Washington Wizards will square off, while the Brooklyn Nets fight off the reigning NBA champion, the Miami Heat.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup starts June 12th, and will take center-screen at The Loft throughout it’s running, until July 13th. Brazil will kick off the soccer world cup against Croatia. National teams will fight it out in the first stage, through June 26th, when the second stage starts to ‘narrow the playing field’.
The Ballard Loft is your place to catch all the big games and matches in all of the above, plus local Mariner’s baseball and Sounders’ soccer games!
And if you haven’t been by the Loft recently, we’ve got a great new look out front… To prepare for some gorgeous summer weather, we built out the patio! Come on by on beautiful days for open air drinking and dining, and even on the not-so-nice days when we’ll cover it up to keep you dry.
