Sports bars are not typically recognized as having cutting-edge or modern graphics. In fact, there’s a tendency for sports bars to look more like a “man cave” than a fresh and cool location that caters to all sporting and leisure tastes. But it doesn’t have to be so, and the following sports bar brands prove that your image can be as exciting and progressive as you want to make it.
From the logo to the menus to the complete interior design, your sports bar should mirror modern bar promotion ideas, fashions, and good taste. Here are a handful of examples of sports bar flyers, menus, logos, and branding that show exceptional graphical style:
Super-modern logo and brand image from UK firm Inkbot Design. The cool but classic logo reflects the modern and laid-back atmosphere of the Tailgate Sports Bar that is located in the fashionable city of Leeds.
As visual bar promotion ideas and graphics go, this ranks super high!

The Eagle’s Nest is a Wisconsin bar that has a graphic image with a fresh and young vibe to it. Designed by Diego Melendez, the brand image for this popular university town bar is almost like a team logo itself – a very recognizable and sporty flag to rally around.

This design for a Japanese restaurant and sports bar is super intense and “in your face.” The stylish logo borrows from typical Japanese graphic design style and presents an image of action and excitement. It particularly appeals to the cool and hip sports bar audience from the big city that enjoys sushi instead of chicken wings with their sports.

Indian designer Harmindar Singh has created a super-exciting graphical treatment for the Live Sports Bar. The action-packed logo, menus, flyers, and décor create a sense of a “hang-out” where the sports experience is loud, fast, and fun.

Design consultants Daniel & Andrew created this exceptional branding for Golazo Sports Bar in Bucharest. The minimal branding and super-clean styling is so fresh and classy – reflecting a truly modern approach to sports bar branding. I particularly like the animated sequence that they use on their big screens to give all the sports events a personally branded feel.

Designer Stacey Bowers has created a retro experience for sports bar customers in Buffalo. The beautifully illustrated branding has a modern styling while still maintaining the sense of this place as an “old-school sports bar joint” that provides burgers, beers, and wings.
We particularly love the sports bar flyer designs and overall look and feel of the print assets that appeal to both a male and female sports bar fan. When handing out flyers, Pandora’s Sports Bar would make a really bold impression.

It’s the perfect design and message for a hip downtown Toronto audience.
