Where to watch the Super Bowl in L.A.

Huddle up, fam, because it’s time to figure out your Super Bowl party plan. Sure, you could hit a Costco and buy 400 frozen wings, but you know you and your friends deserve better. Every sports bar in L.A. is almost guaranteed to be a mess on Super Bowl Sunday, so we’ve rounded up a few alternatives for where you can watch grown men smash into each other for a living. Some are cocktail bars, some are Thai restaurants, some simply make the best wings in the city, but all will be showing the game and offering plenty of beer to nurse as you watch the Super Bowl. Ready? Go!

When is Super Bowl LIII?
Sunday, February 3, 2019.

What time does the game start?
Kickoff is at 3:30pm PST.

Who’s playing?
The L.A. Rams will play the New England Patriots in Atlanta.

Who should I root for? 
Sure, the Rams took a break from being L.A.’s team for about, oh, two decades, but for the last three seasons they’ve come back to us—so if you’re not rooting for the hometeam, you might as well be an East Coaster. Plus, we love an underdog, and, ugh, Tom Brady.

As this year’s Super Bowl is held in the South, it’d be fitting to enjoy a taste of it while watching the game. Stop by early for a Southern-food brunch and scope out your seating, then from 4 to 9pm in the barroom and the upstairs dining hall, you can expect the game on a handful of TVs, not to mention all-day happy hour complete with $1 oysters, $1 wings and $45 cocktail pitchers (with a special cocktail inspired by each of the playing teams). Don’t forget the regular menu of frozen drinks and fried crab hush puppies, either.

Get beachy with Tallula’s celebration, kicking off at 3pm in the bar and lounge. The seaside restaurant is showing the game and throwing a “Nacho & Wings Extravaganza” with specials like wings in a Yucatán chili sauce, and smoked Oaxaca queso frito—so even if we lose, at least you’ll be eating something delicious in a scenic spot.

Tavern’s bringing back its Super Bowl party in style, held in the restaurant’s Blue Room. From 3 to 9:30pm, find a food special for each team, complete with beer pairings: L.A.’s got the shrimp taco with blood orange and meyer lemon salsa, aioli and a roasted-poblano slaw, while New England’s dish is a crab and lobster roll with tarragon, aioli and chips—with each dish priced at $15. Beer pairings run $7 apiece, with Angel City’s pilsner repping the hometeam, and Victory Brewing’s Prima Pils repping the Patriots.

Hollywood’s W Hotel is going big with a 30-foot screen for their game-day party. We’ll say that again: The W’s got a 30-foot screen for your Super Bowl viewing pleasure. Head to the outdoor lounge for the party, complete with food and drink specials. (Psst, you can also catch viewing parties on this screen for the Grammys on February 10, and for the Oscars on February 24.)

Easily one of the top SFV spots to catch the game, Phillip Frankland Lee’s gastropub sports a TV—plus great food and drink specials to keep you sated. First there’s the $7 cheeseburger with tomato jam, triple-crème cheese, parsley, onions and beet mustard (you read that correctly); $7 wings; a $7 order of the seriously good lamb street tacos with cilantro, salsa verde and house-pickled onions; and $7 nachos, a special item for the game. Need to wet your whistle? Grab one of their $5 boilermaker specials for a shot and a beer.

Still insist on a sports bar?
