Where to watch the big game: Eight great sports bars in Collin County

It’s finally fall, and while the weather may not be getting any cooler, football is hotter than ever. Amid streaming wars and the decline of cable package subscriptions, watching the game at home is no longer the move. Luckily, there are several sports bars north of 635 where you can catch the big football game, as well as other major sporting events.

Shark Club

With two 18-foot media walls, on-site broadcasts from 105.3 The Fan and a menu full of elevated bar food, Shark Club has everything you need full the ultimate Sunday-funday.
