Game 1 takes off at 9 pm on Thursday and you can bet your shiniest dollar that Scotiabank Arena and Jurassic Park will be going wild for the Raptors first ever appearance in the NBA Finals.

Chez Serge is known for being a great spot to watch hockey games and since they’ve switched their focus to the NBA, nobody’s complaining.

A great atmosphere, good drinks, prize giveaways, and jumbo screens makes this bar a great option to check out the Raptors.

They also have a mechanical bull that patrons can ride — which would be more fun if Toronto were playing Chicago, but hey, it’ll have to do.

1909 Taverne Moderne
