On Saturday night, undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and mixed martial-arts champion Conor McGregor face off in what The Washington Post's Adam Kilgore described as "perhaps the richest and most outlandish boxing match in recent history." If you want to take in the spectacle, these bars in the Washington region are showing it.

Where to watch Mayweather-McGregor for free in D.C.

Barcode: Going out with a group? A bottle service table at Barcode, which holds six to eight people, costs $500 and includes two "premium bottles of liquor." General admission is $20, beginning at 9 p.m., and a DJ will be spinning hip-hop, R&B, salsa and top 40 music before and after the fight.

DC Reynolds: Here's an incentive to show up for the undercard: DC Reynolds's famous buy-one, get-one-free happy hour runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Tickets start at $20 for general admission, and go as high as $150 if you want to reserve a table for six.

Fado Irish Pub: One of the city's most popular Irish pubs is solidly behind McGregor. Tickets are $30 in advance, or two for $40. Arrive by 10 p.m. to guarantee admission.

James Hoban's Irish Pub: With “rivers of Irish whiskey flowin'” and $5 pints all night, there's no question who the crowd at James Hoban's will be supporting. Cover is $25, beginning at 8 p.m.

Lou's City Bar: The Columbia Heights bar has dozens of TVs, but you'll have to arrive early to get a good seat: Tickets, which are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, only guarantee standing room.

Mason Inn: There are two options at the Glover Park sports bar: Pay $20 for admission or pay $75 for unlimited beer and spirits from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Either way, there's a 100-inch projection screen and other large TVs.

The Park at 14th: The Park opens at 5 p.m. for a free pre-fight day party with DJs and drinks. Admission is free with RSVP until 7 p.m. If you just want to see the fight, a no-line, no-wait ticket costs $20.

Public Bar: Reserving a bar stool at Public Bar costs $125, but includes $100 worth of food and beverages. If you don't think you'll eat or drink that much, a general-admission ticket (without guaranteed seating) is $25.

RedRocks: The H Street party spot is offering free admission and keeping the kitchen open until midnight. The fight will be shown on all three levels, including the rooftop, beginning at 9 p.m., and DJ Mane Squeeze spins afterward.

RiRa Irish Pub: The Georgetown pub opens its upstairs floor for the undercard fights at 6 p.m., and will open the bar for the main event at 8 p.m. There are four projection screens and multiple flat-screen TVs for $30 in advance and $35 at the door.

Tysons Biergarten: There's no cover at the German-themed bar in Tysons Corner, which will have the fight on projector screens and large high-definition TVs over two floors.

The Ugly Mug: Boxing fans regularly head to the Barracks Row bar to watch fights, and this should be no different. Reserve a table for two for $40 per person, which includes one drink each. General admission is $25 at the door, and bar seating is first-come, first-served.
