31 bars & pubs for watching the Super Bowl in Toronto
Super Bowl 50 between the Panthers and the Broncos goes down this Sunday February 7 and Toronto bars and restaurants are getting ready for the big event with booze and big screens. Below is a round-up of places that have revealed their plans for the big day. For additional destinations, check out our lists of the top sports bars in Toronto.
Here are my picks for where to watch the Super Bowl in Toronto.
WHERE TO WATCH THE GAME
Ring in the Super Bowl with a house party vibe. The venue, made to look like a retro home in Beverly Hills, is hosting a tailgate party kicking off at 3 p.m. Expect plenty of drink specials, games, party snacks and giveaways.
This King West dance club is where to go if you want to skip gorging on wings at a dive bar. Its Super Bowl 50 affair will have 150" projection screens, free foosball, a top-notch menu, giveaways and more.
Fuse Restaurant Entertainment Emporium
Fuse, a new venue/restaurant hybrid in Corktown, is hosting Broalition Presents Super Bowl 50 & After Party. You'll get to watch the game on big screens while taking advantage of food and drink specials (menu is TBA).
Hit up this Club District spot for a good old fashioned pig roast. Aside from eats more interesting than your average game day menu items, you'll find discounted drinks and plenty of giveaways.
If you've been jonesing for nachos, burgers, wings and beer, The Drake has got your back. It's cooking up a game day feast filled with pub fare favourites for its tailgate party this Sunday.
The Office Pub
The Office Pub is hosting its 5th annual Super Bowl bash on Sunday. Entry costs $40 and includes three domestic drinks and an AYCE buffet. Want more? There's a burlesque half-time show and prizes, as well.
Lithuanian House/Bar Lokys
In the market for something a little different than your average tailgating festivities? Head to the party at Lithuanian House. Before the game kicks off watch live pro wrestling in the main event space and then move downstairs to Bar Lokys to enjoy the game.
Smoque N Bones
The West Queen West eatery hasn't released very many details on its Super Bowl event, but if you're a lover of barbecue fare you won't walk away disappointed - it has some of the best in the city.
The Hideout offers comfy couches, drink specials, darts, pool and snacks. If you chili is your go-to game day meal you're in luck; the Queen West bar is also hosting a cook-off in honour of the event.
Spirits Bar and Grill
If you're in the Church Wellesley Village area, Spirits is a tried-and-true option for game watching. The sports bar is hosting a viewing party complete with cheap sandwiches, wings and pints.
Skin + Bones
Skin + Bones is known for serving eats like rapini croquettes and house-made gnocci, but it's trading that in for a menu filled with pub fare (and $5 tall boys) for game day. Its party will also have a 17-foot HD screen, so you won't have to worry about squinting to see the plays.
Rally Sports Bar and Smokehouse
This East York outpost is well-equipped for game day: the space is 7000 square feet, features 40 HD TVs and specializes in barbecue fare. In honour of the big event it's doing a AYCE buffet and giving away prizes.
One of the city's top sneaker stores is teaming up with the Dundas West watering hole for a Super Bowl bash. Details are still being hashed out, but you should aim to arrive early as capacity is limited.
Equipped with 18 big screens and two projectors, this Liberty Village pub is worth leaving your living room for. Instead of attempting to craft your own seven layer dip, opt to indulge in pub fare at Williams Landing's annual buffet and pig roast celebration.
Drums N Flats
If the Super Bowl had a signature dish it would be wings, and Drums N Flats has some of the best in the city. Post up with a plate of flaming hot drumsticks and watch the Panthers and Broncos go head-to-head on one of the many flat screens.
TAKE-HOME SUPER BOWL
One of the city's top barbecue joints is offering a series of take-home options including favourites like smoked chicken wings, corndog bites and taco kits. Get your orders in by Thursday or you'll have to settle for something else.
If you're looking for something a little swankier than traditional game day eats, opt for Momofuku. The restaurant is offering packages that'll serve 1-12 people with everything from Korean style fried chicken to roasted pig head.
SanRemo Bakery is an Etobicoke institution best known for its freshly-baked breads and pastries. While those would be welcome at any Super Bowl bash, you may want to take advantage of one of its specials. For the day it's offering wing and pizza combos that serve big crowds and won't break the bank.
The Friendly Butcher
In honour of the Super Bowl, The Friendly Butcher has created a meat-centric take-out menu. You can order favourites like chicken wings, pork ribs and chilli con carne. They also have snackable items like chips, guac and seven layer dip available.
