Here's to a Miami Heat three-peat, bro.

Except for being in center of all the action at the American Airlines Arena, there's nothing like cheering on LBJ, D-Wade, Bosh, and the rest of the Miami Heat champs at a sports bar with an ice cold Yuengling on hand, surrounded by like-minded ride-or-die fans.

At the peak of the 2013 playoff season, we here at Crossfade provided you hardcore Heat enthusiasts a list of best bars to watch el Heat near the AAA.

And now that the NBA season has just begun, here are five more sports bars across the 305 to watch our Miami Heat make a three-peat.

I like Ale House. Sure, it's a little "old", but their food, especially their zingers, is the best! One of the best sports bar franchises in the US.


Duffy's is a great place to watch the games, right up until you order anything off the menu. NMB Ale House item for item is superior eating during the game. Right now NMB Ale House is renovating, so the place isn't quite the same as it's been over the years. I always enjoyed NMB Ale House for game watching, they are putting in a patio/deck area, so it should be even better when that's done. They don't quite have as many tv's as Duffy's, but have enough to get all the games. But as far as food goes the menu is comparable in price with Duffy's, but servings and taste of the food is what puts NMB Ale House easily over the top. Duffy's has waterfront dining, but that doesn't make up for sub par food.

Give you a quick example, Shrimp Scampi. NMB AH, huge plate of linguini style pasta with 35 shrimp and 2 slices of garlic toast. Duffy's, decent sized plate of spaghetti that is described as Angel Hair pasta and my order had 6 shrimp on it with a slice of garlic toast. Someone over at Duffy's wouldn't know Angel Hair pasta if they walked over to the Winn Dixie and got a 8 or 16 oz box that said it was Angel Hair pasta in it. Non-alcoholic beverage, NMB AH comparatively a bottomless jumbo raspberry tea with refills, Duffy's well, I think they served me a 16 oz soda that I had to ration to finish the food. Trust me, if the food matters with your afternoon of NFL, NMB Ale House is far and away your choice. If sitting by the intracoastal is why you went to a sports bar, Duffy's has that covered. After a couple/few hours at Duffy's, I found myself leaving and going shopping at TJ Maxx or heading on over to the Aventura Mall.
