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 wings, dogs and burgers ‘cause what’s more American than that? Chase them down with a $25 bucket of Coors beers, obvs.
The Chippo Hotel
The Chippo Hotel is doing everything bigger and better than ever for their Super Bowl (emphasis on the super) Party. We’re talking unlimited wings and beer (go hard or go home, amirite?), burgers and fries, giveaways and huge screens to watch the live action on. Tickets will be selling like hot cakes, so get in quick and grab yours here.
Star 24/7 Sports Bar
For all our die-hard, counting-down-the-days (no judgement) Super Bowl fans out there, the Star 24/7 Sports Bar is the spot for you. Boasting six mega (and we mean MEGA) screens, it will be impossible for you to miss any of the action. Literally, you cannot miss it.
Dee Why Hotel
Dee Why Hotel is back and bigger than ever with their annual Super Bowl Party. The $20 Bud buckets are great value for money, and even better value for a good time. A special game day menu includes all the American foods we (secretly) love, including BBQ buffalo wings, chilli cheese nachos, foot long hot dogs and the special “Super 52 Burger”. Anyone else wishing it was Super Bowl Monday erry Monday?
Pyrmont Bridge Hotel
Doors open at 8am, and you’ll have to get in quick to grab a coveted spot on the Pyrmont Bridge Hotel’s rooftop terrace. With 13 big screens showing the game, Bud promos, giveaways, and all the American eats and drinks your heart desires (and belly can fit!) this year’s Super Bowl party is sure to be a winner.
The Forresters in Surry Hills has got you covered with all the essentials this Super Bowl Monday. $25 Bud buckets, hot wings, hot dogs and hot footballers (only onscreen though, sorry team!). Every $20 Bud bucket you buy gets you entered to win NFL jersey so see you in line.
Manly Wharf Hotel
Manly Wharf Hotel is embracing all things American culture—oh, and there’ll also be some little football game playing on the big screens. It’s all kicking off from 10 am and yes, that is a socially acceptable time to get stuck into the $30 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 $10 buckets of wings and buckets of craft beer tinnies for $30. The big game will be playing on three big screens from 10.30am, so this is where to head for the super bowl done Aussie style.
Bondi Beach Public Bar
Sydney’s new kid on the block, BBPB, has been quick to embrace the American tradition and you’ll be damn please about it. Your day will involve an ex-pat meat pie float (don’t ask), Philli cheesesteak snack pack, and buffalina wines with chilli shoestrings (among other delish things) plus American beer and wine. Oh and a little thing called the actual Super Bowl game.
Whether you’re there for the football, half-time ads or just an excuse to skip work and over-indulge in fried chicken and beer—The Erko is bringing us all the best bits of America this Super Bowl Monday. Yes, we’re still talking about the buffalo wings.

Super Bowl madness is taking over Luna Park for a day of beers, balls and blitzes. In true American fashion, ‘Luna Bowl LII’ is treating guests to an over-the-top, action-packed day of food and football. Guests will be picked up from Circular Quay for a ‘sailgate’ cruise and then welcomed to the park with a 25-inch hot dog. After enjoying their first-class drinks package and American-style buffet, guests are then free to go wild on unlimited rides, two Slideshow Games, an Interactive Game Zone and of course, watch the game live on projected screens. Grab your all-inclusive tickets here for $155 a pop.
