Planning on catching the Super Bowl this weekend in New York City? Great. We are too.
It's the 50th Super Bowl, and the two teams that will be competing for the title are the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. We could pull for either team. Cam dabbing on everybody and their mother would be great, but Sheriff Manning riding off into the sunset with one more ring isn't bad either.
But we digress.
Penty of New Yorkers attend Super Bowl parties in NYC apartments. That's a super fun idea, but plenty of other New Yorkers would rather party at a bar on Sunday instead.
Luckily, plenty of NYC bars are privy to New Yorkers' desire to spend the whole day this Sunday eating wings, pouring beers down our throats, and screaming at television screens.
Of course, there's always the opportunity to stay at home, download the Minibar app, and enjoy the game in a much calmer manner while you get wine, beer, and liquor delivered to your door for free, but Super Bowl Sunday is simply too big to do that.
Coldplay will perform, clever new commercials will air, and a lot of grown men in pads will try to get a ball across a line before getting tackled and concussed. Read on to find out where the best NYC bars to catch the game are.
1. Amity Hall (80 West 3rd Street)
amityhall Have you joined the Amity Hall Beer Club yet? Here's more than 20 reasons why you should! #amityhall #beer #craftbeer #taps #uws #greenwichvillage
Given that Amity Hall is the official home of the Carolina Panthers, it's going to be insane on the day of the Super Bowl.
They'll be blasting the game on a 20-foot HDTV, so you can imagine how crazy it's going to get. They'll have a tailgate at 4 p.m. with tons of games and prizes, and a huge party once the game actually begins.
The food at Amity Hall is some of our favorite. We can get wild over the stuffed burgers, flat bread pizzas, and truffle fries any day.
It's a huge space, but we're still guessing it's going to be packed in there, so call 212-677-2290 for reservations. If you aren't a Panthers fan, go somewhere else. It won't be a good atmosphere for non-Panthers fans.
2. Butterfield 8 (5 East 38th Street)
butterfield8ny A great turn out for a great cause | Thanks to everyone who supported the Kellie Duggan Foundation today! #kelliedugganfoundation #drinkforacause #fundraiser #charity #booze #food #raffles #party #midtown #nyc #butterfield8nyc
Broncos fan? You need to be at the Butterfield 8 Super Bowl Party - it's the official, NFL-recognized Denver Broncos bar of NYC.
They've got plenty of HGTV plasma screens which will provide a crystal-clear view of the game, plus Coldplay's performance, and all the amazing Super Bowl commercials we know will come our way.
At Butterfield 8, they'll put on a pretty wild day-of-the-Super Bowl event, as you might expect. They'll have a $55 unlimited domestic beer and wings option, and a $65 unlimited wings, beer, and well drinks throughout the game.
Who wouldn't want to be able to eat and drink as much as humanly possible while watching their favorite team take on the Panthers? Again - don't come here if you're not a Broncos fan. It won't work.
3. Brooklyn Bowl (61 Wythe Avenue - Brooklyn)
brooklynbowl #SUPERBOWL! Join us at @brooklynbowl for the ultimate #SuperBowlSunday on FEB 7! Enjoy the game on 14 high-definition screens, in full concert sound + food and drink specials all night! #nocover #superbowl50 #gameday #nfl #football #camnewton #peytonmanning #broncos #panthers #brooklyn #brooklynbowl
We thought you should know about the Brooklyn Bowl's Super Bowl party for a couple of reasons. The first, you'll want a place to take out your aggression after watching all that football. Bowling is the perfect way to do that.
The second, well, this Super Bowl party is free, and everyone knows New Yorkers are all about the free stuff scene.
They'll have dozens of HD screens showing the game, full sound blasting from their sound system, and plenty of their famous Blue Ribbon chicken for sale. Plus, of course, all the alcohol you could think of.
The party starts at 6 p.m., and admission is first-come, first-served, so we'd suggest getting there on the earlier side.
