Whether you’re watching the Super Bowl for the football action or the commercial breaks, you want to be in a place that offers good food, great drinks and where everybody knows your name (or, well maybe not).  Super Bowl Sunday is essentially a national holiday in the US and, while there be slews of watch parties at a buddy’s man cave, there will be even more bars opening their doors to the masses. Here are 7 spots to watch the big game.

Lillie’s Victorian Establishment

With its lavish and ornate décor, adorned with wooden carvings and antiques from an 1800’s estate in Northern Ireland, Lillie's Victorian Establishment may seem like an odd place to watch the big game. But with a projector and two 100-inch TV's at its Times Square and Union Square locations, Lillie’s is a prime spot to watch the Super Bowl.  

While both locations will feature a "Guess The Score" game (winners will receive a $100 gift card), the Union Square locale is slated to offer an additional exclusive package of eight house beers and chicken wings for $50.

Kansas City Power & Light District

The Kansas City Power & Light District is where the people head for a good time in downtown Kansas City. The "Kansas City Live!" area within the district is known for its watch parties and is expected to draw more than 10,000 football fans for the Super Bowl.

The game itself will be shown on a big screen outdoors, but if standing shoulder to shoulder in the cold isn’t appealing, there will be plenty of other neighboring establishments like Johnny’s Tavern, McFadden’s Sports Saloon and No Other Pub all showing the big game.

The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails 

The Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails is an ideal Las Vegas spot for multi-tasking fans of sports and/or live entertainment as a whole. Not only does The Barbershop regularly host big events, but you can get a full-on shave and/or razor cut on-site while watching the Super Bowl.

The bar portion of The Barbershop is actually a speakeasy which you enter through an unassuming janitor door. Once granted entry into its Prohibition-era inspired parlor, enjoy a drink from its extensive beverage menu which actually has a subsection titled "Fancy S**t."

Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge

Tiki Bar and pizza joint, Psycho Suzi's Motor Lounge aims to deliver "faux paradise" to the “Nordeast”. Its drink menu is a hybrid of the tropical island fare, classic cinema and punk rock. The same can be said of its comfort food-oriented cuisine. 

The motto for Psycho Suzi’s Super Bowl party is "Eat, Drink, Yell, Cheer”. This year’s offerings include an unlimited pizza bar, a tater tot buffet and discount drinks all for a $20 buy-in, beyond the option to participate in a "special drink bingo game".

Aiming to redefine the traditional bowling alley concept, the 10pin Bowling Lounge is a Chicago staple located near the Marina City district's House Of Blues. Its 24 luxury bowling lanes face the largest HD video wall in Chicago. A perfect spot to watch the Super Bowl with unlimited bowling (and a pizza buffet) for $25. Reservations are recommended.

American Social Bar & Restaurant

Can’t score Super Bowl tickets? Don’t worry, Miami offers plenty of options. American Social Bar & Restaurant – nicknamed "AMSO" by locals – is both a high-energy sports bar and a music-centric restaurant. 

AMSO overlooks the Miami River with a waterfront patio area. American Social keeps its kitchen open late, and is just minutes from other high-rated spots like Blackbird Ordinary, Graziano's In Brickell and The River Seafood Oyster Bar.
