Best Man Cave Chairs

9 of the Best Man Cave Chairs

Your man cave is your domain, and since you spend a lot of time there, you want to make it as comfortable as possible. Whether you have things like game tables and dartboards, a huge television and gaming system, a bar, or all of these plus more, you deserve seating that gives you the level of comfort and relaxation any man wants in his man cave.

Because of that, you need a chair that’s comfortable and suitable for your personal needs. So what are the best man cave chairs out there?

What to Look for in Man Cave Chairs

Everyone will have different things they want in man cave chairs because everyone uses their man cave differently. However, there are some universal things you should look for before you buy a chair to complete your man cave:

  • Comfort
  • Neck and back support
  • Armrests
  • Durability
  • How well it compliments the rest of your man cave

Beyond that, consider what you’re doing. If you’re spending a lot of time gaming, things like good headrests and adjustable armrests are probably more important than your decor. If you use your man cave primarily to watch stuff like sports and action flicks, you might want to consider a good, living-room-style recliner with cup holders as opposed to a gaming chair.

With all of that in mind, we’ve come up with the nine best man cave chairs to help you narrow down your decision.

1. Vitesse Gaming Recliner Chair

We like this chair because it’s the best of all worlds. It’s a gaming chair and a living room recliner all rolled into one. While many gaming chairs come with reclining backs and footrests, and many recliners come with decent back support, Vitesse’s gaming chair really has it all.

You can adjust this chair between 90 and 180 degrees, meaning you can sit straight up or lie flat. Besides that, it has three points of support: Head, lumbar, and leg. Finally, you get a pouch on the side of it to store magazines, controllers, and more.

You can recline this chair to nearly 180 degrees when you want to lean back and relax a bit. You can also adjust this chair’s height chair so it fits you, rather than leaving you with your feet dangling in the air or your knees up to your chest.

7.  X Rocker SE 2.1 Black Leather Video Gaming Chair

The X Rocker SE 2.1 is our first recommendation. It is specially made for users that want to fully immerse themselves into their favorite game or movie. Built-in speakers offer surround sound without sacrificing comfort.

In fact, the entire chair is designed to be as comfortable as possible. Faux leather, ergonomic arm rests, lumbar support, and a pressure-relieving base all provide a fantastic experience for the user that won’t leave them hurting after relaxing all night (and day!). Plus, it can swivel and, when you’re done using it, fold down for easier storage.

Where this chair really excels is its connectivity. The user can either plug their devices directly into the chair or use its built-in wireless capability to enjoy music or direct audio from a TV or console. You can even link this chair with other chairs to share the experience!

8. Giantex Recliner Chair

Giantex’s entry onto our list is well deserved. Unlike the previous options, this recliner offers eight (certified) massage modes that are easily adjusted with the provided remote.

There are a number of massage settings and vibrating modes, so users should have no trouble finding the modes that work best for them. Best of all, the massage element of the chair is EL certified so you don’t need to worry about the chair harming you.

This recliner has three primary positions, meaning users can comfortably sit upright while working, enjoy watching TV or playing games in the first recliner position, or even sleep in the fully extended mode.

Finally, the chair uses a synthetic linen material for its upholstery that is both spill resistant and easy to clean. All of the surfaces are wide, so there’s plenty of room to get comfortable too.

9. Flash Furniture Contemporary Multi-Position Recliner with Ottoman

One of the most unique chairs on this list, the Flash Furniture Multi-Position Recliner is slightly more compact than the other options and instead of an attached footrest, it comes with a detached ottoman.

Perhaps one of the best features of this chair is that the base is made from real Mahogany wood and LeatherSoft material. The chair has plenty of cushion and an easy-to-use pull lever controls the multi-position recliner settings.

The ottoman is equally cushioned and the material should be robust enough to support shoes or slippers without getting too dirty either.

On the downside, this chair can only support up to 250 pounds, which is still pretty good but may exclude some buyers.

  • Dimension: 40 x 32.75 x 41 inches

  • Material: LeatherSoft and Mahogany
  • Color Variety: 4
  • Style: Contemporary
