On Sunday, February 7th, more than 100 million people will tune in to watch the Denver Broncos take on the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. From serious football fans to people who are just watching it for the commercials and half-time show, the Super Bowl truly has something for everyone. Here in San Diego, there are tons of different options if you are planning on catching the game out and about. With that in mind, we compiled a list of the best places to watch the Super Bowl, no matter your level of commitment to the actual game…
Firehouse (Pacific Beach)
This annual celebration is the mother of all Super Bowl Parties. Firehouse, a Pacific Beach staple for their spacious, roof-top patio and fun vibe, creates their very own “back yard” by fencing off their huge parking lot. This BBQ wonderland features food from different vendors, all sorts of drinks, live DJs, couches, bleachers, a 20 foot teepee and a 20 foot LED Jumbotron. Tickets are $20 and it sells out every year, so if you want your Super Bowl to be super-sized, look no further than the Firehouse.
722 Grand Ave, San Diego, 92109
The Rabbit Hole (Normal Heights)
If you are a betting person then The Rabbit Hole is the spot for you this Super Bowl Sunday. Not only can you enjoy food and drink specials all day, but there will be side games, giveaways and a square bet pool, so get your square picks in today! Must-try football grub includes their (anything but) Normal Nachos and Fire-In-The-Hole spicy wings.
3377 Adams Ave, San Diego, 92116
Home & Away (Old Town)
Home & Away is the spot for you if you want to watch the football game but don’t want the extra hubbub of a big Super Bowl event. This is because H&A has 12 TVs around the bar along with two outdoor TVs over an expansive patio. This is a great place to take your non-football loving friends too because there are tons of games like darts, beer pong, ping pong, corn hole, giant Jenga, foosball, board games, cards and more to keep them entertained while you watch the game. They truly have something for everyone and will be serving up their amazing, house-smoked BBQ they are known for all weekend.
2222 San Diego Ave, San Diego, 92110
Wonderland (Ocean Beach)
This beach hotspot has one of the best views in San Diego, looking out over the Ocean Beach pier as waves crash around the plethora of surfers. On Super Bowl Sunday, however, this will be the go-to bar for beach goers and OB-tians. With a full array of Super Bowl beer and drink specials and tons of huge TVs, this is a great spot for game-watching, drinking and just hanging with friends. They have a full list of craft beers on tap and one hell-of-a Salty Dog that shouldn’t be missed.
5083 Santa Monica Ave. Suite 2C, San Diego, 92107
Thorn Street Brewery (North Park)
BBQ and beer are on the menu for our Super Bowl Sunday here at Thorn Street Brewery. We are the ultimate, laid-back, game-day location, so if none of these other spots are of interest because of the likely hubbub, TSB is for you. The game will be on multiple TVs, we will be pulling down our big screen for the game and as usual, 15 different craft beers will be available. Also, our good friends over at Grand Ole BBQ Y Asado will be providing the grub for the game with their amazing smoked brisket, pork and more.
3176 Thorn Street, San Diego, 92104
There you have it, Super Bowl plans for every type of game-day viewer. So get your bets placed, your friend invited and have a fabulous day of football, food and fun!
