Somewhere good in Cola to watch the game?
 
Hey everyone...

I've been lurking here for several years but never posted anything.

I'm from North Carolina, but my wife and I will be spending new year's in Columbia. We'd prefer not to watch the game alone in the hotel!! Any one know of a good place to hang out and watch with some other Gamecocks? I know the obvious answer is "almost any bar" but I was just wondering if anyone had any good suggestions of places they like. We're a bit beyond the Five Points "age range" so I'm looking for a bit more low key scene. Somewhere in the Vista maybe? Out at Harbison?

Thanks all

Scott

It'll be New Year's Day. A lot of places will be closed.

Wild Wings in the Vista would be a good spot to watch the game.

Wild Wings in Vista
Carolina Wings in Vista
Buffalo Wild Wings on Devine
Buffalo Wild Wings on Harbison

I'd say those are your best spots. If you want a seat, make sure you get there 1-2 hours before kickoff. Last time I went to Buffalo Wild Wings, the only way I could watch the game inside is if I sat off to the side in a chair.

Ale house in the vista has a good atmosphere upstairs for the games

Ale House in Vista
Ale House on Harbison
Wild Wings in Vista
Wild Wings on Harbison
Buffalo Wild Wings on Devine
Buffalo Wild Wings on Harbison
Wild Hare in Lexington/Irmo/Vista
Flying Saucer in Vista (I'm sure they'll have the projector screen down for the game).

I'm sure a lot of people will be doing things at their houses, so not sure what the bar crowd will be like.

World of Beer in The Vista is a great place, but I don't know if they're open on New Years.

Ale House Vista by far... Ton of seating, tons of TVs and projectors. They play sandstorm, 2001, etc over loudspeakers.

I normally go to Hemmingway's in Irmo when I go out to watch a game.

The Carolina Wings in the Vista closed a while back.

Is that the one in the Kroger shopping center? Is that place more of a bar or more of a restaurant? It's close to my house, but I haven't tried it out.

Ale House or Wild Wings if you're doing the Vista.

I dunno if they'll be open, but Salty Nut is fun if you wanna try something near 5 Points and they have a lot of TVs.

If you prefer local establishments, Pawleys Front Porch and the Salty Nut are good places in five pts and with the students gone will probably be somewhat relaxed. I like Thirsty Fellow near the CLA and the Coliseum, also. If you like chains, Wild Wings and Carolina Ale are good in the vista.

I've never really thought of Wild Wings (Wild Wing Cafe for you Yankees) as a chain. Maybe it's because I'm from Bluffton and Wild Wings was founded in Hilton Head. For South Carolinians, I wouldn't consider is a chain.

Better be a smoker. That place smells like an ashtray

Ale House, Wild Wings are good suggestions. I would hang in the Vista.

Also, just pick up a Free Times & you can see who will be open & what specials will be running or bands that may play after the game.
