Everyone knows it’s especially fun to watch the Super Bowl out in a big crowd, and this year, if you find yourself in Philadelphia, you can cheer on the Eagles with everyone else. Head to one of these great bars and restaurants for plenty of game-time specials throughout the weekend and into Sunday night.

1. O’Neals

Bar, Pub, American, Wine, Beer, Cocktails

O’Neals will start Super Bowl Sunday early at 9 AM on February 4, 2018, with breakfast sandwiches and drinks until 3 PM, a live band, and $5 Hurricane specials until the game starts. Once it does, expect 50-cent wings, $3.50 drafts and bottles, and more. With 22 TVs and sound, you’ll have no issue watching the game.

For the first time, Philadelphia’s oldest bar, McGillin’s Olde Ale House, will serve green beer outside of St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate the Eagles! They’ll also offer specials like $2 PBR cans, $6.50 PBR pitchers, $7 Yuengling pitchers, and more. Note that there will be a $5 cover all day.


Music Venue, Concert Hall, Theatre

There are few better places to watch any game than XFINITY Live, and the Super Bowl is definitely no exception. With a 32-foot HD screen, 100 TVs, and six different bars, XFINITY Live is unbeatable. And the best part? It’s right in the midst of all the stadiums; therefore, you can party with more fans afterward.

4. London Grill

Bistro, Diner, Restaurant, American, Vegan, Vegetarian

London Grill will have Yards Brawler, Bud Light, Miller Lite, and Yuengling Lager all available for $3, alongside green shots and tailgate-inspired fare. Catch the game throughout four TVs, and be warned: the owner, Terry Berch, has sworn to lead a “victory march down Broad Street” if the Eagles win. (If you want a guaranteed seat in the dining area, they are taking reservations.)

5. Chickie’s and Pete’s

Bar, Restaurant, American, Wine, Beer, Cocktails

A true South Philly staple, Chickie’s and Pete’s is always a great place to watch any sporting event. Settle in with some crab fries, enjoy tons of TVs and full sound, and get the full Philly experience at this time-honored sports bar.

6. The Little Lion

Restaurant, American, Vegan, Vegetarian, Wine, Beer, Cocktails

Named after founding father Alexander Hamilton, The Little Lion will be playing the game upstairs alongside great specials such as $3 Yuenglings, $5 BBQ chicken sliders, $6 dry rub wings, and $5 Southern poutine.
