Metairie, LA 70002
(504) 324-6841

New Orleans, LA 70118

Raw oysters, stiff drinks, and a huge beer list await at this casual Riverbend bar just down from the levee. There are televisions everywhere, so no matter where you sit the view will be just fine. If you get hungry, drop by Mr. Chill’s next door for a dynamite hot dog. And, in case you’re wondering, the celebrity/beer caricatures lining the walls were carved years ago by a former RISD student who found himself flipping burgers back in the kitchen.

3. Ale on Oak

Another spot that shares an outdoor space with a neighboring wine bar (the owners are brother and sister), it’s a great place for both wine and beer lovers. Feast on soft pretzels with beer and cheese fondue, Two Run Farm beef debris fries, and fried oyster sliders while taking in the game. Plus, there are TVs on the dog-friendly patio at this popular Oak Street hang-out.

4. The Bulldog, Mid-City

5135 Canal Blvd
New Orleans, LA 70124
(504) 488-4180

New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 483-2517

This Mid City favorite has it going on when it comes to games with crawfish boils, outdoor and indoor seating, and great drink specials.

Menu items include solid New Orleans-style pub grub: crawcheese fries, debris fries, an alligator sausage dog and more.

6. Finn McCool's Irish Pub

Copy Link
3701 Banks St
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 486-9080
Visit Website

The quintessential neighborhood bar is an Irish bar through and through. The original owners came from Belfast in the 1990s and opened the kind of spot they remembered from home in 2002. It is now owned by a former regular and fellow Irishman. It’s a popular place to catch European football, but come Super Bowl Sunday the screens will be tuned to the NFL. Plus, there are tons of bar games to enjoy if the game isn’t as riveting as you expected, and a decent food menu with curry fries and more.

7. Bayou Beer Garden New Orleans

Copy Link
326 N Jefferson Davis Pkwy
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 302-9357
Visit Website

If the weather is nice, head to this Mid City compound for gravy fries, boiled crawfish, drink specials, and — most importantly — a big screen on the deck. A deck also connects Bayou Beer Garden to Bayou Wine Garden, so there are both plenty of wine (16 wines on tap) and beer options. Here’s the game-day menu.

8. Tracey's

2604 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 897-5413
Visit Website

Come hungry on Super Bowl Sunday. This friendly Irish Channel bar is both a sports bar destination and a po-boy destination (try the roast beef po-boy). If the weather is nice, the bar’s French doors will be open to Magazine Street. They love football here, and they want to share that love with their customers.

9. The Tchoup Yard

Copy Link
405 Third St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 895-6747
Visit Website

Tchoup Yard is part beach bar and part beer garden. It’s got plenty of outdoor seating, frozen drinks, and 13 big screen televisions.

10. The Rusty Nail

Copy Link
1100 Constance St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 525-5515
Visit Website

This favorite locals’ spot on the edge of the Lower Garden District is an equal opportunity broadcaster of games. Cheered on by an impressive beer and cocktail program, the crowd at the Rusty Nail often spills out onto the expansive outdoor patio.

11. Bullet's Sports Bar

Copy Link
2441 A P Tureaud Ave
New Orleans, LA 70119
(504) 948-4003

This kitchen at this cool Treme spot churns out divine dishes like barbecued ribs, potato salad, mac and cheese, stuffed bell peppers, seafood stuffed potatoes, fried fish with potato salad, seafood pasta, jambalaya, smoked sausage, and chicken wings. For Super Bowl Sunday, expect the game on four big screens. As usual on Sundays, there will be free food (before the game) with things like barbecue and fried fish.

12. Mannings

Copy Link
519 Fulton St
New Orleans, LA 70130
(504) 593-8118
Visit Website

A sports bar on steroids, this Archie Manning-owned CBD spot is all about big booths, big patio, big screens, big beers, and — if you’re lucky and plan ahead - big, leather reclining chairs. Easy parking in the Harrah’s garage make Manning’s a popular game day destination.

13. R Bar

Copy Link
1431 Royal St
New Orleans, LA 70116
(504) 948-7499
Visit Website

The quirky Marigny bar, known for attracting hipsters and old weirdos alike, is known for raucous game-day viewing. In short, total mayhem, food, and the possibility of a full-on brass band wandering in during half-time.

14. The American Sports Saloon

Copy Link
1200 Decatur St
New Orleans, LA 70116
(504) 300-1782
Visit Website

If you’re in the Quarter, it’s one of the better options to catch a game — lots of TVs, space, and a central location. Very into SPORTS, so there’s a “viewing party” for the Super Bowl, and for most soccer games, etc.

15. Markey's Bar

Copy Link
640 Louisa St
New Orleans, LA 70117
(504) 943-0785

Serving the Bywater area since the 1940s, the bar thankfully hasn’t changed as much as the area around it. In fact, the clientele is a cool little mix of old-school regulars and hipsters that have only recently docked in New Orleans. Markey’s is also a great spot to watch the game with large televisions, an ample selection of draft beer, and speedy bartenders (sadly, the good bar food is no more).
