A Guide to Watching the Super Bowl in London

A Guide to Watching the Super Bowl in London

29 January 2017 Edd Elliott

The regular season is over and the playoffs are nearly through. The New England Patriots face off against the Atlanta Falcons in a classic Super Bowl contest of the reigning champs versus the new contender. Canny tactics vs raw fire-power; cold logic vs offensive flair; Belichick vs Dan Quinn; Brady vs Ryan – its going to be an awesome event. But where to watch it all? As a British NFL fan your options are somewhat limited. So we’ve put together a handy guide to help you out on 5 February.

Frankie’s Sports Bar
 
For many, the only proper place to watch the Super Bowl is a sports bar. If that sounds like you, Frankie’s Sports Bar is a good option. This Fulham drinking hole sits just outside Stamford Bridge Football stadium and has a dedicated Super Bowl party, with the game screened on twelve huge screens. Pre-book seating has already sold out, but the standard entry still has a few tickets for just £12 with a bottle of Bud included. The event is sponsored by Jim Beam, so expect plenty of Whiskey and cokes flying around in a bouncing atmosphere.
 
For more information on Frankie’s Sports Bar and how to book, see their website.
 
Bodeans
 
The Super Bowl is darn long, and if you’re going to get through it all you’re going to need some good grub. Step up Bodeans, the finest proponent of authentic American BBQ in the city. Their menu includes pulled pork, Boston butts and the succulent – if unappetizingly named – burnt ends. Share huge sharing platters with friends and double it up with a key lime or pecan pie. Healthy? No. But you’re not the athletes on 5 February. Bodeans has eight restaurants across London, each with a Super Bowl party. To book, fill out their online forms.

Elk Bar
 
Proclaiming itself the “funkiest fun bar” in Fulham, the Elk Bar is a great choice if you are looking for slightly smaller crowds and a slightly less serious tone. It’s a chilled out bar with cool furnishings, a large outside area and good selection of drinks. Their Super Bowl party will have a big screen and plenty of plasma TVs. Entry is only £3, and “burgers, dogs and wings” are served all night. Be laid back – it’s late after all.

Club Aquarium
 
It’s called a Super Bowl party – so let’s party! Club Aquarium brings back its infamous Super Bowl event next Sunday, this year joined by the Komani Cheerleaders. Unique features include a swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, beer pong, Xbox games, and two huge projectors for watching the game. There will also be a superfan competition – with a £100 cash prize - and a Super Bowl quiz. A good option for those who want to make a night of it.

Planet Hollywood
 
A maverick choice to finish: why not watch the biggest night in America’s sporting calendar amongst the stars at Planet Hollywood? The restaurant is putting on a three-course meal with all the burgers, buffalo wings and burritos you could want. Or you can just stop by for the drinks and their whopping 18 screens. Who knows what this will be like? If nothing else it will certainly be unique and memorable. What better way to see off your NFL year.
