We’ve got everything you need for Super Bowl Sunday, from the stickiest dive bars to a $5,000 private room for you and 20 of your friends. Not into the Super Bowl, anything related to the Super Bowl, football, or people who like football, but still want to leave the house for a drink on Sunday? Check out our guide to the best bars with no TVs. Do want to watch the Super Bowl but don’t like the look of any of the places on this list? Our guide to the least douchey bars to watch the Super Bowl in the District is just for you.
Booze – booze everywhere! Drink up $6 bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys, $12 Bud/Bud Light buckets, $20 themed craft beer buckets, $3 shooters, and $1 drafts after the kickoff. There will be raffles and giveaways.
Not only will Capitol City Brewing be showing the game on their huge projection screens, but they’ll be offering wing platters and pints of house made beer for $8.50.
If you want some good barbecue but can’t fit a grill onto the balcony of your tiny apartment, Bar Dupont is going to have a huge grill on their patio. They’ll also have beer trucks parked outside and a live DJ. Food includes barbecued pork ribs, grilled wings, hot dogs. There are even going to be Tom and Eli themed shots.
A perfect mix of fun and charity, this party’s proceeds will benefit Girls Inc. and the James Michael Foundation. There will be unlimited drinks and food from 5pm to 11pm including tacos, wings, hot dogs, and fried Oreos because why not. Makers Mark and Svedka will also be available. Tickets are $40.
Wings. So many wings. 10 for $5.50, 20$9, or 30 for $12.50. There are also $3 Coors Lights. They plan to raffle off a 32-inch flat-screen TV.
For those of you who aren’t interested in booze (what are you doing here?), Shake Shack is offering a two-for-one deal on pints of frozen custard for the entire weekend.
If you ever wanted to watch the Super Bowl on a movie screen in a movie theater, here’s your chance.
A $25 ticket to this sports bar gets you a buffet, door prizes, and the ability to see Redskins cheerleaders perform during halftime.
For all you winos – Vinoteca has $5 wines by the glass and specials on small plates like their Mushroom Crostinis and Chorizo de Revilla.
This classic sports bar will have $4 Bloody Marys, mimosas, draft beers, and rail drinks as well as $15 buckets of beer.
At Saint-Ex you’ll find $4 Sam Adams and Brooklyn lagers ($15 per pitcher) as well as a menu with food like Old Bay puffed pork rinds.
12th Street Meats is cooking the sausages and half-smokes at Dodge City’s party. DC Brau will also be on tap, making it the most DC party so far this year.
Every table at Duffy’s will get free chips and pretzels (until they run out, at which point we give you permission to cry). There will also be $14 pitchers of Natty Boh and Miller Lite, plus $20 pitchers of Fat Tire, DC Brau, Chocolate City, and Sam Adams.
Instead of hosting a conventional Super Bowl Party, the Satellite Room is having a Bill Murray Appreciation Day party. There will be screenings of classic Billy Murray films and Bill Murray themed drinks and food. Bill Murray is a huge football fan and will probably spend his Sunday watching the Super Bowl with everybody else.
Who doesn’t love chili? Jack Rose is throwing a Super “Chili” Bowl party. Everyone gets a free bowl of chili and cornbread. $5 beer, punch, and whiskey will abound.
Both of the Bourbon locations are going to have $3 beers and a mix of $5 appetizers and half-off appetizers throughout the game.
Breadsoda is going to have $3 PBR, Miller Lite, and Bud Light, plus chili dogs, tacos, and nachos. There will be free pool, shuffleboard, and Wii (just in case you want to ignore the game completely and embarrass yourself instead).
If you don’t like the Giants, stay away from this bar. (We all know what Giants fans can be like.) Doors are at 4 PM on the big day; happy hour specials last until the game starts. During the Bowl there are specials on shooters and drinks, house beers for $3.50, and food deals so you can eat your feelings if you’re not drinking them.
The sticky, cramped, greasy dive bar you’ve been dreaming of for your Superbowl experience, The Bottom Line has bottles of Miller Lite for $2.50 and wings for $3.50 and will give your tipsy self easy joke fodder for taunting fans of the other team by handing out free hot dogs at halftime.
Meridian Pint is offering 10 percent off the check to anyone who wears a football jersey on Sunday. (Even if it’s a Cowboys jersey. Or our team-who-shall-not-be-named jersey. Or a Richard Sherman jersey.) All wings and nachos are half price and they have a bunch of DC Brau specials including $4 Public Ale and a Public-and-Jameson-shot combo for $6.
Trek out to The Argonaut on the end of H St NE for pitchers of their house Booty Beer for $10 on Sunday. Pitchers of Allagash and Dog Fish Head will cost $15.
If you want to separate yourself and your friends from the rest of the riff-raff watching the game but also want to leave the house to watch the Bowl, Bourbon Steak is offering you and 20 of your closest friends access to a 60-inch plasma screen in the most sophisticated man cave in town. Executive chef David Varley has put together a thinking man’s tailgating menu just for the occasion; you can feast on black-truffle-and-Castelmagno grilled-cheese sandwiches; lobster corn dogs; foie gras-stuffed chicken wings; lobster pot pie; Wagyu-beef chili, and house-made milkshakes while other people are stuck with greasy wings and cheap tater tots. Priced at $5,000, beverages, tax, gratuity, and a private cocktail server are provided. You’re just 10 little numbers away from the classiest Super Bowl experience ever. (202-944-2026)
