There’s something special about watching the Super Bowl as part of a loud, boisterous group of friends and strangers. Sports bars have the unique ability to bring people together for a common goal—witnessing your favorite team take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy. For those in and near Minneapolis who don’t have tickets to Super Bowl LII, here are some of the best sports bars in the Twin Cities for watching the big game.
Since the 1930s, Bunny’s Bar & Grill has been serving up a unique sports bar experience for NFL fans. Bunny’s, which has been voted the Best Sports Bar in Minnesota by City Pages and WCCO, cooks up American classics in both Northeast Minneapolis and St. Louis Park. The sports bar and grill offers breakfast seven days a week. And when it comes to Sundays, fans line up at the door to partake in the free Bloody Mary special. Bunny’s carries most sports packages and has 15 HDTVs in its Minneapolis location and 30 HDTVs in its St. Louis Park location.
Known for its dog-friendly patio, yoga mats for resting pups, and cool canine menu, The Howe Daily Kitchen & Bar is a South Minneapolis staple. With more than 40 beers on tap and daily breakfast, it’s a great place to watch Super Bowl LII—provided that you show up early to get a seat. This weekend, there are $3.75 domestic taps, cans and wells, $1 off craft taps and wine, and a Happy Hour food menu with items as low as $4. This modern sports bar sits just off the Blue Line near 38th Street station.
Step inside Tavern on the Avenue, and you will instantly feel like a regular, even if you’re not. This St. Paul restaurant and bar is loved by locals and known for its friendly staff and scratch-made meals. The Black Angus Burgers and Summit Battered Fish Reubens are fan favorites. For entertainment-loving customers, Tavern on the Avenue has 17 HDTVs, video games, pull tabs, darts, and pool tables.
