February 2nd, 2016
The Super Bowl is just five days away (February 7th!), and if you haven’t made your viewing plans yet, now is the time to start reviewing your options. If you’re hosting a party — refer to last week’s blog for some swell ideas. However, if you’re planning on hitting one of the awesome sports-friendly bars in and around Marina del Rey, then you have some big decisions ahead of you. Not that your choice will affect who walks away with the Vince Lombardi Trophy, but still, picking the right setting can be a big deal. Maybe you want to be near some water tranquility so you can get your bearings after a particularly painful fumble. Or maybe you want more than a seat for the game; you want prizes, drink specials and freebies to go along with the action! Whatever atmosphere you’re craving, our recommended bar options will suit every preference.
So take a look and have a great Super Bowl Sunday, fans!
Sports Harbour Bar
13484 W Washington Blvd, Marina del Rey
If you’re looking for a local dive with good food, well-made drinks and lots of flat screens, Sports Harbour is for you. Order up one of their amazing grilled quesadillas or the buffalo wings (or the brie and grape quesadilla if you want to be fancy!), wash it down with a cool micro-brew and cheer on your team with some Marina del Rey-gusto.
Tony P’s Tavern
4445 Admiralty Way, Marina Del Rey
Tony P’s tavern is the perfect spot to catch the Panthers-Broncos action with eight huge high-definition flat screens, over 100 beers (including more than 16 California breweries), cocktails and wine, good food (pizza, spicy chicken quesadillas, potato skins and more), and a super friendly atmosphere. And of course, the harbor is just outside for those who need to take a break from the excitement. The tavern always sells out fast for Super Bowl Sunday and seats are just $20 each, so head up there today to score a spot. *The $20 price tag includes a commemorative Tony P’s Super Bowl shirt, drink specials and giveaways!
4089 Lincoln Blvd. Marina Del Rey
Since Brennan’s has proclaimed itself “L.A.’s Official Broncos Bar,” this place is definitely going to be rocking this Sunday night (especially if you’re a Denver fan). The TVs will be blaring, the drink specials will surely be flowing (especially when the Broncos score), and the good times will be rolling — big time. And for fans who work up an appetite during the game, they can enjoy some solidly good bar food, including staples like hot wings, jalapeno poppers, great burgers, fish tacos and homemade mac-n-cheese.
Killer Shrimp Bar
4211 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey
Another great place to see the big game is at Killer Shrimp. The restaurant’s bar has seven massive flat screens, a nice selection of beer + all the cocktail fixings, and plenty of scrumptious food options like popcorn shrimp, clam chowder, Baja fish tacos and steamed mussels.
Prince O’ Whales
335 Culver Blvd, Playa Del Rey
Hop on to the other side of the Ballona Wetlands and you’ll find the awesome Prince O’ Whales sports bar in Playa Del Rey. This is a fun, casual spot to catch Super Bowl 50 with more than 17 HDTV flat screens capturing every minute of the game and two patios for some half time relaxation. You’ll also find a darn nice menu with breakfast dishes, appetizers, a great burger selection, fish & chips and salads.
1351 3rd St. Promenade, Santa Monica
If you’re wanting the quintessential sport bar experience with a slew of football fans around you, Barney’s Beanery is your dream destination this Sunday. As expected, you’ll have lots and lots of flat screens to watch the game (over 16 of them!), a cornucopia of drink options, and a massive food menu where you can order pretty much anything. Pancakes, Eggs Benedict, mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, turkey, beef or black-bean burgers, chimichangas, salads, pizzas, avocado melts, s’mores — seriously anything you’re craving, Barney’s has on their menu.
