Whether you follow it or not, the Super Bowl is kind of a big deal. If you’re like us and always down for any socially acceptable reason to indulge in disgustingly greasy, but deliciously good, American food, and begin drinking at 10am, this one's for you.
We all know live sports, good food and cold drinks go hand-in-hand, but finding the right spot for this perfect combination is essential. Luckily you for you, we have searched far and wide (Sydney wide that is) to bring you the best spots to watch the Super Bowl in Sydney.
The Norfolk is a good ol’ fashioned pub, and one of our top picks to watch the Super Bowl live and loud on the big screen. Get into the spirit and over-indulge yourself in their $10kg of buffalo hot wings, ‘cause what’s more American than hot wings? Chase them down with $7 beers, obvs.
The Chippo Hotel

Anyone else wishing it was Super Bowl Monday erry Monday?

It’s all kicking off from 10.30am and yes, that is a socially acceptable time to get stuck into the buckets of Budweiser.
Australian Heritage Hotel
One of Australia’s most iconic pubs is turning American for the day, but don’t worry, they’ll still be serving up all of your fave pub classics—fried buttermilk chicken burgers, chicken schnitzel parmis and chorizo dogs.
