It almost doesn’t matter whether you’re rooting for the Panthers or Broncos, because when it comes to watching Super Bowl 50, all that matters is you’re with friends, have good food and a great place to watch the Big Game. Yes, most people likely will attend parties at friends’ homes, but if you’re more into a public gathering, here are some spots where you can get your game on.
- Bub City: The game will be shown, with sound, on 16 TVs while guests order specials like sticky and sweet wings; Nashville fried chicken tenders and barbecue pork nachos.
- The Anthem: Between two massive projections screens (190 inches and 150 inches), three 65-inch TVs and four 60-inch TVs, you’ll never miss a moment of the game. And it’s close to the Division Street Blue Line stop so you can take the train straight from the CAA.
- Headquarters Beercade: Watch the game on two giant projector screens or 16 smaller TVs. Get a $20 ticket for two drinks and access to the gourmet nacho buffet. And if you get bored with the game, play one of the 70-plus vintage video games and pinball machines.
- Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak and Stone Crab: Book a private room and watch the game on 60-foot screens while you indulge in chilled seafood towers and big, fat steaks.
- Bottled Blonde: Be surrounded by the game while watching on one — or all — 50 TVs while sampling through 24 tap beers and a variety of 10-inch pizzas.
- Crew Bar & Grill: Head to Uptown’s premiere gay sports bar to catch the game on 24 flat screens and choose from a list of more than 60 beers.
- The Scout: Named one of Chicago’s best sports bars, the Scout offers 24 TVs and can host upwards of 200 people in their South Loop bar.
