Where to Watch the Super Bowl in New York City

As you ready for some football? The Super Bowl (or, the Beyonce Bowl to some) is this Sunday, February 3. If you’re looking camp out in a New York City bar or restaurant and watch the Ravens battle the 49ers, there are plenty of unique options to choose from. Hit up these venues to score a pitcher of beer and a plate of nachos, and rest assured that since neither the Jets nor the Giants made it to the final game, the only fights you will have is over who gets the last chicken wing.

508 Gastrobrewery: Cheer for your team at this West Villager’s all-you-can-eat-and-drink Super Bowl party. A mere $45 gets you this feast, which includes boar chili, nachos, flatbreads, taquitos, wines by the glass, well drinks, and of course, their house-brewed suds. The extravaganza starts at 6 PM, and goes until 9 PM.

The Bell House: An epic Brooklyn Super Bowl party is taking place at the Bell House in Gowanus, which comes with a big, big screen and drink specials. Choose from $6 themed cocktails like the San Fran Shuffle, aka Sailor Jerry rum and rootbeer, and Ravens Rye, which has Old Overhold rye and gingerbeer. Brew fans can load up on $5 gets pints of beer. Urban Rustic is selling food, and the pre-game party starts at 5:30. Best part? It’s free to get in. Touchdown!

EVR: Head to the new lounge EVR in Midtown to watch the battle royale in NOLA. This bi-level space will offer wings, sliders, and plenty of beer and strong cocktails to get you through the game. Plus, they have a bank of widescreen TVs along the main floor bar and plenty of room to get rowdy.

Mono+Mono: For a Korean twist to an American sport, head to this East Village fried chicken favorite for their Super Bowl extravaganza. The double-fried, hand-sauced wings on offer are a cut above your usual dive bar fare. On Super Sunday, you can pair the signature dish with shots of soju, which will be served after each touchdown. Bet on your favorite team and win a glass of lychee-infused soju if they succeed or, if they loose, take a spicy pepper soju shot and blame your crying on the drink’s heat.

Santos Party House: Feast and get sweaty on the dancefloor between plays at the Santos Party House this Sunday where instead of Beyonce, you’ll listen Andrew W.K. during the halftime show. Ten smackers gets you in, gets you a drink, and for a few dollars more, you can feast on a party pizza imported from Brooklyn’s Roberta’s.

Edi & The Wolf: This Alphabet city crowd pleaser has Austrian-style chicken wings dipped in elderflower mustard and a 110 inch television screen. Done and done. The party runs $45 a person and includes a complimentary Radeberger beer or glass of Gruner Veltliner, plus, family style eats like pork belly sliders, fingerling fries with paprika aioli, and schnitzel burgers.

Forcella Park Avenue South: This pie shop gives guests the other popular Super Bowl food: pizza, and artisanal, Neapolitan style pies at that. They also offer a couple widescreen TVs to watch the game and Beyoncé's halftime performance, that is, if you can ever look up from your feast.

Warsaw: This event space in Greenpoint will hold a Super Bowl party with an Eastern European twist. Expect pierogies and vodka shots galore along with plenty of beer, wings, and nachos while you watch game on their cinema-sized screen (or one of their three televisions). They suggest you reserve your table as soon as possible since this event is going fast.

Hanson Dry: f you want to go beyond beer and wings, Hanson Dry in Fort Greene is the place to be. There, $40 gets you all-you-can-eat barbecue by Thel and Lou BBQ, including smoked chicken, pulled pork and sides. Yes, they will also have wings (three kinds actually) and you can chase the chicken down with one of their craft cocktails.

Guy’s American Kitchen: If ever a restaurant was built to host a killer Super Bowl viewing party, it’s Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar. Though the celebrity chef has gotten a lot of flack for his Times Square “Flavor Town,” the touristy venue actually works for this event. Plus, during the game, all draft beers are $1 off and you can get any of the wings half off, including their Bourbon Brown Sugar, Sweet & Sticky Firecracker, or Buffalo Bleu-Sabi. The restaurant also boasts multiple TVs around the bar and seating areas, so no matter where you perch, the view is good.
