6 Reasons To Host Your Big Game Party at a Sports Bar

Last updated 2 years ago

Super Bowl Sunday is an American tradition. Football, friends, family, and fried food – doesn’t get better than that! Hosting a party at home is good fun, but joining a party or hosting your own at a sports bar can be just as (if not more) memorable and here’s why.

Multiple Screens For Everyone

While it’s great to have lively guests, sharing a single television can get frustrating fast. One friend wants to watch all the live coverage and talk their way through the whole game. Another is still talking about the commercial break. Don’t get us started on the guy who makes noise at every touchdown and pass. And then there is the diehard fans who just want to watch the game. More screens not only means less trouble but also means…


Everyone Gets a Seat at the Table

Any Super Bowl party host can tell you that arranging the couches, tables, and chairs in the living room is an art form. They spend so much time ensuring everyone has a good angle and clear path to the kitchen, only to run out of chairs and stand the entire time. Sports bars might get crowded but everyone can join in on the action.

No Need to Make the Food

After Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the busiest eating days. Even if you make your party a potluck, it is still on you to make sure there are enough wings, dips, chips, appetizers, sliders, and drinks to go around. Even ordering in can be a hassle as you compete with every other household watching the game. Luckily, bars have both food and drink specials throughout the day.  Speaking of drinks…

Not Just Cheap Beer

Just because everyone is stocking up on coolers from the official sponsor of this year’s Super Bowl doesn’t mean you can’t have more options. Parties with microbrews, wine, or themed cocktails on the menu definitely make for happier guests.


Even More Football Fans to Watch With

Face it, you’re not going to get more variety in guests than at a sports bar during the Super Bowl. In fact, the mix of local folks can be quite the spectacle itself. You’re less likely to have light football fans who ask questions the entire time, and more likely to be placing prop bets or debating with supporters of the opposing team.

Less Problems, More Fun!

So much can go wrong when hosting a house party. Someone might sit on the remote and change the channel during a crucial play. Or you’ll just run out napkins when everyone has already started chowing on the hot wings. Maybe you just don’t want to deal with the stress of invitations and clean-up. Super Bowl Sunday should be an experience!
