Australians fall into two camps: Super Bowl obsessives and people that really couldn't give a toss. If you're one of the latter, feel free to close this tab. If you want to know where to smash hot wings, scoff hot dogs and watch the match live in Melbourne, read the hell on. This is our ultimate guide to Super Bowl-watching in Melbourne.

If you need to brush up on the rules (and let's face it, what Australian doesn't), here's a crash course. God-speed, guys. 

The Duke

CBD

Hands up in the air for buckets of Budweiser and a huuuuge American snacks menu! Why go to the states when you can just go to The Duke and get the same damn thing!?

Where: 146 Flinders St
When: 7am

Waterside Hotel 

CBD

Super Bowl celebrations are kicking off from 9am at the Waterside Hotel in the CBD. And guess what...there's gonna be FREE wings at halftime and a FREE Bud beer with every booking. That $15 burger & fries combo looks pretty tempting too...

When: From
9am

The Old Bar

Fitzroy

You’ve got your usual suspects like American style food, but this bar is keeping the party going and giving you some sweet live music once the game wraps up. Pretty sweet.

Where: 74 Johnson St, Fitzroy
When: 
8am

The Sporting Globe

Richmond 

Odds are, there’s a sporting globe near you (they’re bloody everywhere) but being a sports bar and grill, you’d want to bet they put on a good Super Bowl party. It’s the only time in your life that eating buffalo wings for breakfast is acceptable, and there’s even going to be cheerleaders.

Where: Check website for locations
When: 8am

The Emerson

South Yarra 

For all you fancy shmancys out there, this offers a more upmarket option. We’re not sure how an American style menu and $7 dollar beers can be labelled ‘classy’, but whatever floats your boat. You eat those wings, fancy pants!

Where: 145 Commercial Rd, South Yarra
When: 8am

Half Moon

Brighton 

Expect bourbon Bloody Marys for your Monday at Half Moon. You’ll be beachside too, so you can get super relaxed before the stress of winning your Sportsbet multi.

Where: 120 Church St, Brighton
When: 9am
For more info, 
click here.

Colonial Brewing Co.

Port Melbourne

The Super Bowl in a brewery— what could be better? These guys are just a stone's throw from the CBD, so it’s perfect if you need to sneak out of the office. They are offering up $1 wings and $10 pints of craft beer, too.

Where: 89 Bertie St, Port Melbourne
When: 9am

The Penny Black

Brunswick 

Alright Melbourne, start prepping your stomach now, because the guys at The Penny Black are giving you one kilo of wings for 10 buckaroons and beer buckets to wash it all down. God bless America!

Where: 420 Sydney Road, Brunswick
When: 9am

New Era Australia

Richmond 

These guys think that the Super Bowl is the perfect excuse to have a long weekend, and we don’t disagree. There’s going to be American style celebrations and tons of New Era merch. Sounds like a good time.

Where: The Sporting Globe, Richmond
When: 9am

Grosvenor Hotel

St Kilda East 

This is where our true love of burgers and our love of NFL combine. Think massive screens all through the hotel, juicy burgers and cheap as chips Budwisers. Can’t get more Murica than that.

Where: 10 Brighton Rd St Kilda East 
When: 10am
For more info, 
click here.

Munich Brauhaus

South Wharf 

This German beer hall is going to be anything but with $1 wings, $7.50 half-litre steins and a chance to win tons of cool NFL merch. Not much better than free stuff on a Monday.

Where: 45 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf
When: 10am
For more info,
click here.

The Kodiak Club

Fitzroy 

This is already an American themed bourbon bar, so it’s only right that they host an epic Super Bowl party, right? They’ve been serving up an American style menu for a while now, so you know it’s going to be spot on.

Where: 272 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
When: 10am

Boatbuilder's Yard

South Wharf

The Boatbuilder's Yard is teaming up with the King Of Beers for Super Bowl this year. Yep, they're throwing a Budweiser-fuelled party, complete with large outdoor screen and plenty of American snacks. Think hot dogs with American cheese, sweet pickle relish, jalapenos and bacon crumb, or maybe loaded tots with beef chilli. Mmmm...we can hear our arteries clanging shut already. 

Where: Boatbuilder's Yard, South Wharf Promenade
When: From 
9am
For more info, click here

Sonny's Fried Chicken 

Carlton 

Fried chicken and Super Bowl? It doesn't get much better than that. Sonny's are pulling out all the stops, with buckets of Buffalo Wings with blue cheese dressing, Chicken & Waffles, plus Club Sandwiches and a range of American beers on tap. Cheers!

Where: 29 Lygon St Carlton
When: From 8am
For more info, click here

Village Cinemas 

Crown & Jam Factory

If you want to sit back and watch the Super Bowl in air-conditioned comfort (maybe with an Extra Large popcorn on your lap), Village Cinemas will be screening the game at both Jam Factory and Crown. They're using the VMax screens too, so it's probably the closest you're gonna get to actually being there. Tickets are $15. Bookings essential.

Where: Village Jam Factory & Crown
When: 
10am
