The Bulldog Mid-City

Copy Link

With over 100 different beers, wings, outdoor seating, and lots of televisions, there’s not much more you could ask for on Super Bowl Sunday. Plus, there’s an outdoor patio with screens to watch the game should there be nice weather.

Second Line Brewing

There are a few large TVs both inside and out back in the beer garden at Second Line Brewing, so maybe don’t come here expecting a private viewing experience. But for one that’s dog and family-friendly, the popular Mid City brewery is a great option, with daily food truck or pop-up options and a great lineup of beers.

Bullet's Sports Bar

Copy Link

This cool Treme spot has long been a neighborhood favorite for live music nights, Sunday game days, and strong drinks. For Super Bowl Sunday, expect the game on four big screens.

Beachcorner Bar & Grill

Copy Link

This no-frills neighborhood bar is a longtime locals favorite, perfect for watching the game with good grub and beer. The burger is the star at Beachcorner — there’s even a burger of the month. You can usually count on solid Sunday drink specials.

Mid City Yacht Club

Copy Link

This Mid City favorite for games and Sunday crawfish boils offers outdoor and indoor seating, great drink specials, and plenty of TV screens and projectors for game day. It’s also known for its excellent pub food — items like crawcheese fries, debris fries, an alligator sausage dog, and Yachtchos, house nachos.

Bayou Beer Garden New Orleans

Copy Link

If the weather is nice, head to this Mid City compound for classic bar bites 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 are the food menus for both.

Finn McCool's Irish Pub

Copy Link

Finn McCool’s, opened by Belfast natives in 2002, is a popular place to catch European football — but come Super Bowl Sunday the screens will be tuned to the NFL. There are bar games to enjoy if the game isn’t as riveting as you expected, and a decent food menu with reuben debris fries and a scotch egg.

The quirky, dog-friendly Marigny bar that still offers a Monday night haircut and a shot deal for $15 is known for raucous game-day viewing. In short, mayhem, surprisingly good cocktails, and the possibility of a brass band wandering by.

Markey's Bar

Copy Link

Serving the Bywater area since the 1940s, Markey’s hasn’t changed nearly as much as the area around it over the years, drawing a refreshing mix of longtime neighborhood dwellers and newcomers. Markey’s is a great spot to watch the game with large televisions, an ample selection of draft beer, and bartenders who know what they’re doing. For food, the kitchen is currently serving decent pizza, two Italian subs, and salads.

The American Sports Saloon

Reserve a table at the American Sports Saloon, one of the better options for viewing the game in the Quarter, for its Super Bowl Sunday “viewing party,” whether on the balcony (with private TVs) or inside, where spacious rooms and lots of TVs make for comfortable viewing.

MRB Bar & Kitchen

Copy Link

Simultaneously off the beaten path and in the heart of the French Quarter, MRB’s is a hidden gem, a neighborhood bar with an unexpectedly huge courtyard out back, complete with five big screen TVs. Serving tasty tropical cocktails as well as New Orleans classics and hundreds of beers, expect comfort food classics like gumbo, crawfish mac and cheese, and oysters from the kitchen.

Walk-On's Sports Bistreaux - New Orleans

Copy Link

The game is always on at the Poydras Street location of Walk-On’s, and can be counted on for drink specials, 30-plus televisions, and balcony seating. The other area locations of the popular Drew Brees-backed sports bar chain — Metairie, Slidell — are also offering a “Tailgate To-Geaux Platter” this year; wings, cheeseburger sliders, queso, and boudin balls feed eight.

Ale on Oak

Like Bayou Beer Garden, Ale on Oak shares an outdoor space with a neighboring wine bar, so it’s a great place for both wine and beer lovers. Feast on wings, gumbo fries, St. James cheese plates, and burgers while taking in the game. Plus, there are TVs on the dog-friendly patio.

Manning’s Sports Bar & Grill

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 plan far enough ahead — big, leather reclining chairs. Easy parking in the Harrah’s garage make Manning’s a popular game day destination.

Cooter Brown's Tavern

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. 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.

The Rusty Nail

Copy Link

This favorite locals’ spot on the edge of the Lower Garden District is an equal opportunity broadcaster of games boasting an impressive beer list and cocktail menu. While its former outdoor space is now part of Sidecar, its sister restaurant next door, there’s a new, TV-lined parklet with booths out front. It’s a chance to try Sidecar’s tasty food, which you can order to your table, without the fuss.

The Tchoup Yard

Tchoup Yard is part beach bar and part beer garden. It’s got plenty of outdoor seating, a huge, centrally-located fire pit, frozen drinks, a large, and 13 big screen televisions. Open noon ‘til 8 p.m.

Port Orleans Brewing Co.

The game will be on Port Orleans’s new beer garden TVs on Super Bowl Sunday, and as a bonus, the Uptown brewery will donate a portion of every beer sold all day long to Animal Rescue New Orleans, who’s putting on a fundraiser and adoption event before the game (from 2 to 5 p.m.). Avo Taco, the brewery’s newish in-house taqueria, will be serving up food.
