Chapel Hill, N.C. — Big basketball games require great locations to view said games. So, if you can't make it to Phoenix, you can still have fun watching the Final Four games at a local sports bar.
There are some great options in Chapel Hill, but expect it to be really crowded no matter where you go since the Tar Heels are playing.
Hot spots to watch in Chapel Hill are Top of the Hill, Spanky's, Four Corners, He's Not Here and Sup Dogs. You can also head to the Dean Dome to watch Saturday night's games and (if the Tar Heels win) Monday night's championship game.
Another hot UNC alumni spot for game viewing in Raleigh has been Big Boss Brewing.
The 2016 WRAL Out and About Voters' Choice Award winners for "Best Place to Watch a Game" were Carolina Ale House (multiple locations), Players' Retreat and Tobacco Road Sports Cafe in (Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Durham).
