We get it. You want to cheer on the Sixers, and you want to get out of the house.

You can now watch indoors, but there are lots of spots with patio TVs if you want to stay outside. Here are some great places to watch the game.

Hawthornes Beer Cafe

This friendly spot has a large outdoor tent with a big projection screen for the game. It also has a wide beer selection, a full menu, and themed drink specials.

The Ritz Bar

It’s a fancier (and dressier) place to watch the game, sure. But the hotel’s grand high-ceilinged indoor bar has a few TVs to watch the game, and you may even spot a former Sixer while you watch. The bar is first come first serve, so come early for a prime spot.

Old City Beer Garden

The seasonal sister bar to Sto’s (a couple doors down), this festive Market Street lot boasts seven large flat screens on which to watch the game. Go for the backyard hangout kind of vibe with affordable drinks: All drinks are $8 or under. Reservations are encouraged.

The TVs are indoors, though you can also see them from Milkboy’s few outside tables on 11th St. (The South Street location is not doing indoor seating yet, and while they will have the TVs on that you can see from outside, you can’t sit up close just yet.)
