Whether you’re there for the shameless comfort food, the half-time show, the commercials, or, um, the actual game, Toronto is full of spots to watch the Super Bowl.
If you’re looking for a place to watch the big game that makes for a quality Sunday Funday, you’ll find it at these 11 spots (word of advice: make your reservations NOW).
It doesn’t get any more “sports bar-ish” than Real Sports (15 York Street), making it a prime Super Bowl option – if you can get a spot. For a $10 entry fee, Real Sports scores major points with perks like an NFL-themed photo booth, food and drink specials, and more Super Bowl-broadcasting TVs that you’ll ever find in one spot.

If you’d like to get a little competitive yourself, hit The Ballroom Bowl (145 John Street), where your Super Bowl watching can come with a side of high-end bowling (which is free after 5 pm, gourmet grub, giveaways (for things like flat screen TVs), and beer and wing specials. As an added bonus, there is no cover charge this year.
Craft Beer Market
Help christen Toronto’s newest craft beer playground, Craft Beer Market (1 Adelaide Street East) with their first ever Super Bowl celebration. Cheers the occasion with over 100 unique craft beers on tap, soaked up with quality nachos, wings, tacos, and flatbreads. Tables are fully booked, but that shouldn’t be an issue for the football fans when the game keeps them on their toes.
While not typically open on Sundays, The Citizen (522 King Street West) makes an exception this Sunday for the big game. Here, you can expect views of the game from pretty much anywhere in the sprawling spot, complimentary stations that will dish up all the comforting Super Bowl classics, and a crowd that’s guaranteed to get rowdy.
If you have a thing for quality beer and a university-style party (minus the university crowd), the Super Bowl festivities at Batch (75 Victoria Street) include beer pong, beer-based cocktails, Ping-Pong, corn hole, plus more.
St. Louis Bar and Grill (Midtown)
Midtown’s St. Louis Bar and Grill (2050 Yonge Street) is always a hot ticket when it comes to Super Bowl – likely because there are few spots like it uptown. Here, you’ll find a crowd that spans all ages, some of the city’s best chicken wings, and a relaxed, unpretentious vibe.

While Wahlburgers (46 Blue Jays Way) may at first seem like an unexpected option, keep in mind that the Wahlberg brothers are longtime New England Patriots fans. At this bash, guests can expect a live DJ, giveaways, Patriots-themed burgers (made all the better with a side of their signature boozy milkshakes), and more.
The Dock Ellis
If you’d rather surround yourself with more of a hipster vibe than hit a jock-filled joint, head over to Dock Ellis (1280 Dundas Street West). The nacho lovers will appreciate a “nacho war” between the New England Baked Bean & Pork Nachos and the Seattle Coffee Cured Brisket Nachos (in fact, some may appreciate that more than the game).
The Rec Room
For the ultimate Sunday Funday, celebrate Super Bowl at The Rec Room (255 Bremner Boulevard) and relish in the stimulation overload at the “Chuck-E-Cheese for grown-ups. A $52 VIP ticket gets you access to a halftime tailgate buffet, one drink ticket, and 40 gaming credits.
Belfast Love Public House
Everyone’s favourite King West pub, Belfast Love Public House (548 King Street West) invites Super Bowl fans to crush buckets of fried chicken in an attempt to win free beer for a year (meaning, you could be winning Super Bowl along with your favourite team).
Brazen Head Irish Pub
Party like the Irish do in longtime Liberty Village spot, Brazen Head Irish Pub (165 East Liberty Street). Here, you can expect drink specials (like $3.50 shots of Tullamore Dew Irish Whiskey, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey or El Jimador Tequila Reposado), complimentary bar snacks and prizes, and – likely – a Monday morning hangover.
