Downtown Boston: Where to watch the Super Bowl

Don’t feel like hosting the party this year? No problem, there are many options for Kensington residents to watch the Super Bowl. Pats fans will pack every sports bar in Boston no doubt, so you need to get a little ‘Krafty’ to find a good viewing spot. Remember, virtually every restaurant in town has a bar, and just about every bar has at least one or two big screens – even if there’s no sports memorabilia in sight, the game will be on. Here’s some you may not have considered.

 

Right around the corner

Jacob Wirth, 37 Stuart Street, 617.338.8586

Don’t let its German fare dissuade you. This place has over 40 beers on tap, and lots of fun options for eats, small and large. It’s also large on atmosphere – kinda gritty like we like our football team!

 

Sweetwater Tavern, 3 Boylston Place, 617.351.2515

The bar peddles a huge selection of beer and a solid menu of classic bar food like chili cheese tots and fried pickles.

 

A little bit longer of a walk, or short taxi ride

Poe’s Kitchen at The Rattlesnake, 384 Boylston, Back Bay, 617.859.8555

Special South of the Border tailgate party here – mmm, chipotle wings and Poe’s nachos. And to start the game with a Poe’s Bloody Mary served with a luscious curl of salty bacon hanging over its rim – heaven.

 

McGreevy’s, 911 Boylston St, Back Bay, 617.262.0911

If you want a little more action then this is your place. The place with their own Game Day menu including BBQ Chicken and bacon kabobs, beer buckets and confetti launchers. Yes, confetti launchers. Watch the Pats roll over the Seahawks on one of 16 HDTVs.

 

Clery’s, 113 Dartmouth St, Back Bay, 617.262.9874

Interesting in gorging down wings? Winners of Boston’s Best Wings 2013, this is the place for you. You’ll want to purchase any remaining tickets to their wing contest – a ticket includes a guaranteed seat, 2 beers, an appetizer sampler platter and a pizza buffet… all for only $25!
