Mayweather vs. Pacquiao - Las Vegas May 2nd 6pm (PST)
A historic boxing match is on the horizon and you’ve just got to find a spot to watch it. The Mayweather vs. Pacquiao match this Saturday is going to be a biggie; with a $100 price-tag to watch at home perhaps you’d prefer watching it at a bar with a few friends and a few beers. While entry fees to these downtown bars aren’t cheap, you’ll have the perk of being surrounded by fellow adrenaline-pumped San Diegans. So if your preferred viewing destination is downtown, here are five spots that will be showing the fight you’re dying to see.
Barleymash has 35 flatscreens and a gigantic space to host you and your friends this Saturday. Contact Barleymash’s Lizzie Brennan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to set your crew of 6 or more with a reserved table. Entry to the Gaslamp bar will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis for $50 per person. Doors open at 5pm, so you’ll have to get there early to grab your seat.
