View as Map

It's time to start preparing for the biggest (American) sporting event of the year. Super Bowl 50 is happening on Sunday, February 7, with the Denver Broncos going against the Carolina Panthers in the Bay Area.

All the region's sports bars are having some sort of party to bring in the crowds, but a few places are going the extra yard to make sure Super Bowl fans and football hobbyists really enjoy this year's game. From barbecue competitions to over-the-top packages with a private bartender, there's something for everyone to accommodate practically any budget — including those who have $7,000 to drop on a Super Bowl party.

Acre 121

Copy Link

With nine high-def TVs and plenty of barbecue to go around, the sports bar in Columbia Heights is a solid spot to watch the kickoff at 6:30 p.m.

Bar Pilar

Copy Link

On a projection screen in Bar Pilar's upstairs, Super Bowl 50 will be on in full effect. There will be a menu specifically with "football-friendly food" and no game is complete without pitchers and more pitchers of beer.

Starting at 5 p.m., the whiskey-centric bar in Capitol Hill will be hosting its own Super Bowl Party — complete with peri peri wings, "potato skins on steroids", and meatballs and polenta. The party has an open bar with beers from the teams' cities and (of course) a selection of bourbons and rye. Tickets are $64.28.

Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown

Copy Link

This is one party for the football lover who wants to party like a baller. This Super Bowl package includes a stay at the Presidential Suite on February 7-8, a menu that's made special to represent a hometown team, a private bartender, and so much more. The catch is the package starts at $7,000. But it's just money, right?

High Velocity

The sports bar across from the convention center in downtown's Marriott Marquis is not lacking for televisions. With 40 TVs and a live ticker tape so no one misses any action, it's a convenient spot to watch the game with locals and out-of-towners alike.

Ivy and Coney

Copy Link

While the bar is Chicago and Detroit-centric, fans should be able to root for the one of the teams playing in this year's Super Bowl. Just don't diss the Bears or the Lions here.

Jack Rose Dining Saloon

Copy Link

Jack Rose is hosting a "Super Beer-BQ Bowl" on Super Bowl Sunday. Two different styles of barbecue and two breweries will go head-to-head while two teams are battling it out on the gridiron. The party is open to everyone (of legal drinking age) and starts at 5 p.m.

The Pitch Tavern

Copy Link

Petworth's sports bar is making sure no one misses a play with a massive projector for the game. And with bars on two levels, that should help with half-time bar crush.

Copy Link

The newest sports bar on U Street, the bar has plenty of screens to watch all the action. And for noshing, there will be two different types of "hog wings" — shank of pork around a bone — that represent the two teams playing. Get there way before kickoff to score the perfect seat.
