You probably still want to know where to watch the Super Bowl in Miami despite the fact that our beloved Dolphins will be far, far from the playing field. Of course, that doesn’t mean you still can’t have fun (and root against the Patriots too). The Super Bowl is more about the food and drinks these days anyway, right? Thankfully, some of the best bars in Miami are stepping up to provide us with some killer watch parties and extended versions of Miami’s best happy hours. After some BOGO cocktails and tasty bar bites, you won’t even be upset when Tom Brady mounts an epic comeback to win his billionth Super Bowl. Fine—maybe just a little upset.
