|Buy that man an Iron City!|
For nearly a decade, I paid a ton of money to DirecTV so I never had to miss a Steelers game. But last year I thought to myself, why I am giving my hard-earned drinking money to that idiot Roger Goodell and the NFL for the "privilege" of watching football...when I could find a bar and put my money back into the local economy? Plus, I was looking for a reason to go bar hopping at noon on Sundays.
So far, these are the best bars I've found around Omaha to watch games with other fans of the Black and Gold. Keep in mind that the bars on this list are actual "Steelers Bars" and not just a sports bar with annoying fans of other NFL teams watching a bunch of games at the same time.
Are there any bars in the Omaha-area I missing...let me know. I'd love to check those out too!
Dog House Saloon -- This place has everything you need including a great deck, great staff, fun owners, friendly people, reasonable drink prices…I could go on and on. Owners Dog and Jodi always have a good time planned for Steelers games. Hell, they have a good time planned for every day of the week!
E'Z Place -- This place is run by a big time Pittsburgh fan. The tidy bar seats about 12 people and there are 15 table in a restaurant area to the right side of the bar. And, true to their word, there is a good amount of Steelers things on the wall, including the mandatory "You're in Steelers Country" banner behind the jukebox. Nice!
