If you own, operate, or manage a sports bar, you’ll need find ways to out-market local and franchise competitors like Buffalo Wild Wings. Even if you serve the best drinks, cook the finest bar food, games, or offer the widest variety of games, if no one knows about it… you could still go out of business. Bottom line, you’ll still need to generate interest in your watering hole.  

An effective way to accomplish this goal is to have a tagline, often used interchangeably with a slogan. According to branding specialist Alina Wheeler in her book Designing Brand Identity: An Essential Guide for the Whole Branding Team, a tagline is a short phrase that defines a business’s essence, personality, goal, or positioning as well as differentiates the business from its competitors. A tagline explains to your customer what your business is—the essence of your business’s existence. 

If you need a sports bar or pub slogan to promote your business, I’ve gathered together more than 200 name ideas. Feel free to use any of these on a billboard or social media marketing campaign.
