Your sports & Billiards Bar

Arena Sports bar is located across from the Riverview Park in downtown Independence. Originally constructed in 1884 as a hardware store., this building became a tavern the day after Prohibition ended.  Over 300 people lined up around the block to come in and have nickel beers that day! In 2009, it was remolded to became Arena Sports Bar. Locally owned and operated, Arena has been a staple in the downtown area for many decades.  


At Arena, you can watch the Pac 12 Network & the NFL Sunday Ticket all shown on 12 HDTVs .  Along with great food, drinks & staff it is no surprise we’re the destination for those who like to get close to the action.  Our menu specializes in delicious burgers, over 20 buffalo wing flavors & the Chernobyl Challenge.  Arena has three pool tables, two dart boards, Oregon Lottery and Keno machines and free Wi-Fi.  Check out our Events Page for upcoming events.


Arena is your place for burgers, buffalo wings and cold beer!  Cheers!
