Chickie’s & Pete’s

Chickie’s and Pete’s is a Philly-sports-community staple thanks to those famous crab fries it sells at every Philadelphia home game. You’ll have to fork over a hefty $125 to attend the Super Bowl watch party at any of its 11 locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area, but that grants you big-screen TVs as far as the eye can see, an all-you-can-eat buffet and an open bar flowing with draft beers, wine and soft drinks from 6pm till the end of the game.

Located steps away from Broad Street—which will be lit if the Eagles win—Fox & Hound is beloved by local sports fans for its dozen-plus TVs and a mind-bogglingly large draft list featuring dozens of craft beers. Stop in on game day, pay the $30 admission and work your way through a list of drink specials, including a bucket of six select 16-ounce bottles for another $30. You may also walk away with a prize: The bar is raffling off a Carson Wentz jersey at every quarter.

City Tap House

icon-location-pin Spruce Hill

You’ll find two City Tap House locations around town, but the one in University City is especially impressive. The dining area is spacious, with high ceilings, lots of high- and low-top seating and TVs everywhere you look. Another perk? The bar is stocked with a whopping 60 beers on tap and the kitchen cranks out spicy, finger-licking good wings. Admission to its game-day soiree is $25 for general admission, which gets you a free-drink ticket, or spring for the $60 option, which guarantees you a seat and $60 toward your final bar tab.

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest

Wanna know where to watch the Super Bowl outside the typical bar scene? Check out this bash at the winter retreat along the Delaware River. For $60 per person, you’ll get a table and seat in the cozy Lodge, which will screen the game on two 12-foot screens, and serve Chickie’s & Pete’s cheesesteaks and appetizers all night. This is a great option if you have non-sports fans or kids in tow. While you’re mesmerized by the game, they can kill time by playing arcade games or taking a twirl around the outdoor ice rink.
