Published: September 23, 2022

 

When the University of Oregon Ducks have an away game, or when you don't have tickets to Autzen Stadium but still want to cheer on the team — catch the spirit at one of these popular and fun places for watching the Duck game.

The Bier Stein

Wear your Oregon Duck colors and show up at The Bier Stein to watch the football game. They are featuring a special game day menu with flatbreads, nachos served with The Bier Stein's housemade bier cheese sauce, and smoked Gouda fried cheese bites with marinara sauce. Additionally, enjoy $3 off pitchers and, for those planning a tailgate or watch party offsite, 25% off beer to go — so bring a growler!

6th Street Grill & Pub 

The 6th Street Grill's sports bar has the right sports bar vibes for watching UO football on the big screen. With a full bar and delicious pub food, 6th Street has been a classy collegiate watering hole for decades. It is also a pre-and post-game hangout.

The Cooler 

Close to Autzen Stadium, The Cooler is a dedicated sports bar with a country flair. On game days, gather here before, after and during the Duck game! They have an outdoor patio, lots of TVs and a popular pub menu.

Sam's Place Tavern 

At Sam's Place Tavern their 25 TVs (one in every booth) and friendly atmosphere makes for a convivial sports watching gathering place. Enter in the entrance that is specially for "Duck fans"... the other door is for the Beavers. They also have a game day shuttle to Autzen for their customers, inquire about details. Come in and enjoy the game, first come, first serve. 

The Paddock Salon & Grill

 The Paddock is a South Eugene neighborhood favorite with a full bar, TVs and an outdoor patio. Sports fans know this where Steve Prefontaine, the running legend, bartended back in the 70s. Tributes to other University of Oregon athletes adorn the walls creating a festive atmosphere for cheering on your team.

Covered Bridge Brewing Group

In Cottage Grove this craft brewery is playing all the Duck games on the big screen. Covered Bridge Brewing Group has a large outdoor patio area ringed by food trucks right in the heart of historic downtown.

Detering Orchard

This unusual football hub is in Oregon Wine Country in the midst of farmland. Pull up a seat at the outdoor bar at Detering Orchard — where you can sip ciders and craft beer, catch the game on the bar's one screen, and shop for pumpkins, apples, preserves and more in their abundant farm stand and u-pick fields. Fun activities including a playground, live animals and mechanical bull riding keep the kids entertained.

At Home & Hotel

Fill up some growlers of your favorite local craft beer, order a pizza or some wings, and settle in for a comfortable football experience with all the replays. Games are also broadcast on the Oregon Sports Network (radio) and you can also download the game app on your phone for all the latest buzz, social streaming and live audio broadcasting on game day.
