With Super Bowl 56 here, there will be a lot of restaurants and sports bars that will be jam-packed full of fans trying to get together and cheer on as the Los Angeles Rams face off with the Cincinnati Bengals. But with this great event coming up, finding a location where you can get seating can be a bit of a challenge, so hopefully, this will help you formalize some plans. Here are some of the top seven locations where you can watch the game.
Big Dean’s Ocean Front Cafe
A stone’s throw away from Santa Monica Bay is where you’ll find Big Dean’s Ocean Front Cafe. Having a rich history, it was established in 1902. This landmark has deep roots in the community. They serve beer and wine primarily and accommodate those with specialized dietary requirements. This limited seating restaurant has indoor and outdoor tables available and is within walking distance of the Santa Monica pier.
They do not take reservations, but it provides a laid-back atmosphere where you’re able to relax and socialize. Masks are required upon entry and when walking around, but when you’re seated, you can relax, and the staff around you will be wearing them for your protection. With some TVs available to watch the game, it would be recommended to those that plan to dine out in small groups.
Wirtshaus German Restaurant & Beer Garden
If you’re open to new dining experiences while watching the game, then look no further than the Wirtshaus German Restaurant & Beer Garden. With indoor and outdoor seating available, this place is great for groups and kids and it’s pet-friendly. With vegan and gluten-free options available, you’re able to enjoy authentic German cuisine that so many have tried since its doors first opened in 2011.
You’re able to call in and reserve a table to make sure that you and your guests can be seated with a great view to watch the Super Bowl inside or outside.
Tom’s Watch Bar
Tom’s Watch Bar is incredibly proud of their 360 degree wall to wall screen, so you won’t miss a beat of the game playing no matter where you look. You can’t go wrong with their menu, but they are best known for their prime rib sandwich and pork belly tacos.
Not only do they have a location in Los Angeles, but you can also find them in Denver, Colorado, Ridgefield, Washington, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Uncasville, Connecticut. They accept reservations, but you will be required to show your proof of vaccination card to be seated and to wear your mask until you get to your table.
Saturday & Sunday – 11am-11pm
Monday-Friday – 4pm-11pm
The Morrison Atwater Village
Just off the 5 freeway is the Morrison Atwater village restaurant. Not only is this establishment highly rated, but it is very accommodating when it comes to customizing your dining orders. Having a very festive ambiance, the minute you walk inside, you are enveloped in the entire staff’s positive nature and good attitude.
Best known for their bread pudding, you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. If you’re not sure what to order, your waiter will be more than happy to make some great recommendations. If you’re getting ready to watch the Super Bowl, they will have special drink offers and deals throughout the evening.
Even though you are able to make a reservation ahead of time, you are still required to show your proof of vaccination card and to wear a mask before you’re able to be seated. The entire staff is vaccinated, so if that is your concern, then know that this establishment is taking extra steps to keep everyone safe.
The Standard Station
If you’re more in the mood for American-style cuisine while watching the Super Bowl, then make sure to check out the Standard Station. With its classy and casual environment, this place is excellent for large groups, featuring a full bar and happy hour specials available.
If you’re more in the mood to be sitting outside and enjoying the evening, then you can expect covered, heated seating available. Reservations are available if you want to plan ahead, but masks are required.
After the big game, if there are any other sports games and teams you wish to see, then there will be plenty of TVs there on which to watch them.
Legends Restaurant & Sports Bar
Legends is acclaimed to be the first sports bar in America, established in 1979. A tradition since its opening, Legends Sports Bar has its local “Wall of Fame,” which pays tribute to our local Long Beach athletes who have gone on to play professionally in their respective sports.
With TVs covering every inch of the walls, no matter which seat in the house you get, you’ll have an optimal view to cheer on your team.
Masks are required at the door, and Legends does not offer outside seating. If you are inclined to bring your furry friends, they will need to be tethered outside.
If you’re looking for the local secret sports bar that is known as the “neighborhood spot,” then look no further than the Elbow Room. Known for their delicious dishes but especially their pizza, this location has 18 TVs, giving any seat in the house a great view of the game.
You’re able to sit inside, outside, and directly at the bar. All forms of payment are accepted, so if you have cash, then make sure that you tip your waiters generously. Similar to Cheers, you will be enveloped in an extremely friendly environment. Unless your team is losing, then that’s on you.
Reservations are not available, so it is recommended to get there as close to opening as you’re willing to because when the game is about to start, it will be packed. Wearing a mask until seated and presenting your vaccination card at the door are required, but once you’re seated, you can sit back and enjoy yourselves as the staff takes your dining and drink orders.
