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.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
La Peg will set up two huge screens—one in their outside beer garden and one in their theater—and offer a game-themed menu that you can order à la carte or for $25 per person. Enjoy $3 beers during the afternoon from 4:30 until 7 PM, and don’t miss their Screaming Eagle Cocktail or Underdog Shot.
Rittenhouse’s casual chic gastropub, Pub & Kitchen, will offer brunch specials on Super Bowl Sunday, including Saint Nick’s Pulled Pork Sando, 700 Level Chili, and more. Don’t miss their Bleeding Green Cocktail, which is an Eagles-inspired take on a Bloody Mary. This special brunch will be served Saturday, February 3rd, and Sunday, February 4th.
Jose Garces’ West Philly taquería, Distrito, will offer select tacos for $2.50, $7 nachos, $2 Tecates, and $4 select draft beers during the game, but the most exciting part of the evening will be courtesy of Corona. You can get a $20 Corona Light beer tower, and there will be giveaways throughout the evening.
Mad Rex Restaurant and Virtual Reality Lounge, Philadelphia’s first (and only) apocalypse-themed bar, will show the game and have $3 drafts, free house IPA with any burger, free fries, and flaming Eagles shots whenever they score. Don’t miss out on 10 free minutes of their NFL-themed virtual reality.
