It’s that time of year again folks, as we get peppered with the big question of where to watch the Super Bowl in London.
With COVID finally in the clear, and the restaurant industry somewhat bouncing back, it seems like that people are going out again.
So let’s take a look at some of the places the Super Bowl in the UK and across London.
Watching the Super Bowl in London
We are hosting a few private parties again this year, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some great places to watch the big game.
With an 11:30pm start time, the Super Bowl will require venues to get a late license, something some of them forget when it comes to midnight (oops!).
So while we aren’t working with any bars directly this year, we can’t really recommend any of them with our having talked to the venue of looking at their set up and prices.
If you are a venue who is looking to promote your Super Bowl party in London, feel free to get in touch.
The cost of living continues to bite, with the pint of a London pint now topping £7 for a tipple. Factor in buying rounds, food, and possibly tickets, and the price of going out to the Super Bowl is more than double what it was 5 years ago. Ouch.
ITV will be showing the Super Bowl, and being able to watch it at home means that you can not only save some dosh by not having to pay for overpriced beer, but you can also watch the game in your jammie pants.
Having mates around for the game can make for great traditions, especially if you add in pregame poker, bbq’s, Super Bowl squares and even some Madden to sweeten up the stakes.
A great Super Bowl home game is also a chance to be able to connect with many of your fantasy football teammates you never get a chance to connect in person with.
London has several casinos in patches of the city that offer all night entertainment, and connectivity to transit. The Empire in Leicester Square has a sports bar, as do ones in Mayfair, and Stratford. Make sure that you contact the casino first to see if they have tables and what offers they might have. If you’re used to American sized casinos you will be shocked to find that many of their sports bar viewing options are quite small.
There are plenty of American themed bars that are open late, and offer authentic Super Bowl experiences for fans. Hotel bars like the American Bar or Duck and Waffle offer premium menus and sophisticated ways to watch the Chiefs vs 49ers.
Again, we can’t vouch for any of these bars who are offering Super Bowl parties on social media, but from experience we can offer some words of caution when looking to book.
How late does the late license go until? Some venues might only get it until 1am, forcing viewers to scoot home to catch the second half. When do you stop serving? Some licenses might only have a liquor license until 1am as well.
If they usually don’t show the NFL, then you might be in for a frustrating experience, and menus are often subpar, an ‘pub chain’ microwave in the bag portions.
The worst Super Bowl parties are the ones where you are your friends have to head home after a night of bad service, 1 tv, and just sadness.
If you have some places you would like to promote, get in touch and we can look at how we can help. Hope that helps some fans looking to branch out for their own Super Bowl parties in London.
