It’s almost Super Bowl time, football fans! So bring your gold shoes and deflated footballs and come watch the game at one of these Denver hotspots. We’re definitely Broncos fans, but the Super Bowl is fun no matter which team you support. And even if it’s a lackluster game, the commercials are usually entertaining. Here are our top picks for best places to watch the game in Denver!
The Soiled Dove
While you may think of The Soiled Dove as a live music venue, it turns into a football tavern during games, and the Super Bowl is no exception. It has great food and drink specials, as well as contests and events during the games. Tickets are about $35 and they usually sell out fairly quickly. They put up large projection screens around the venue so wherever you are, chances are good that you’ve got a solid view of the game. And the commercials.
Highland Tap and Burger
Right in the LoHi neighborhood, we have Highland Tap and Burger. With its giant TVs and cozy fire pits outside, this makes for a great football destination. Reservations are strongly encouraged, especially for larger tables. This place will be BUSY, but for good reason! The food rocks, it has a great atmosphere, and it’s very close to being in the middle of everything.
Jake’s Food and Spirits
Over in RiNo, we highly recommend Jake’s Food and Spirits. If you reserve a table for the Super Bowl, you get a free pitcher of beer and a basket of wings. It has 11 flat screens around and a 100-inch projection screen of the game, so you won’t miss a minute. The restaurant is also offering various food and drink specials throughout the day. Reservations are highly recommended; this place will be at capacity for sure.
This Riverfront favorite is offering a $35 bottomless brunch on Super Bowl Sunday, including unlimited small plates and cocktails. If you’re watching the game at home, it’ll be nice to get out of the house and enjoy brunch before you plop yourself onto your couch for the rest of the day!
Let’s be honest, one of the best places to watch the game is at either your home, or someone else’s. The pros: pre-bought beer, no tab at the end of the day, comfortable seating. The cons: people talking through plays, slim food variety. If you happen to be hosting, here are some no-fail Super Bowl recipes:
Good luck in your quests to watch the game, Denverites. Yes, this year is kind of a bummer without our team and PFM, but it should be a good game nonetheless. If you’re like me, you’re having a hard time deciding whom to root for.
I’m rooting for the Ultra Decadent Chocolate Chip Brownies, personally. ;)
