Thanks to two pro teams arriving over the last couple years and a mega-stadium in the works, Los Angeles has suddenly become a football town. That said, Angelenos aren’t exactly the die-hard paint-your-face types you find in all those other cities with NFL teams, as evidenced by the lack of game attendance and the fact that if you mention the LA Chargers at a group brunch someone at the table will inevitably ask, “Wait, the Chargers are an LA team?”
But Super Bowl Sunday is the one day a year when more LA residents than ever commit to watching an NFL game... or at least commit to eating and drinking during it. If you’re going to spend four hours of your life at a bar on your day off, though, you’re going to want to make sure it’s the best bar possible. Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up the best places to take advantage of deals and specials around the city -- from sports bars to gastropubs to cocktail lounges -- while watching defending champs the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII. Take your pick.
