The time has come again to watch grown men with curiously wide shoulder pads slug it out for the ultimate NFL championship game, the Super Bowl. Get onside at the best places in Melbourne to catch the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Feb 5, accompanied by some American snacks, morning beers (it's nighttime in the USA) and a half-time show care of Justin Timberlake and friends.

Just after a drink? Check out one of Melbourne's 50 best bars.

In need of fuel after? Why not try one of the best burgers in Melbourne.
