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 LA Rams on Monday Feb 4, accompanied by some American snacks, morning beers (it's nighttime in the USA) and a half-time show care of Maroon 5 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.

If the only way for you to watch the NFL grand final is on a rooftop, with a cinema-sized screen, then you'll want to head to the Common Man for their annual lawn party. They're throwing a tailgate barbecue with giveaways and everything kicks off at 8.30am so you can get the best seats. They also have packages if you like someone else to do the thinking and catering for you.
