The Super Bowl is coming up fast! Where are you going to watch it?
If you aren’t planning on throwing your own Super Bowl viewing party, you might want to consider catching the game (and commercials!) at one of these five D.C. bars. Each will make a perfect place to grab a bite to eat in a fun, lively environment!
1001 H Street NE, Washington, D.C., 20002
Ben’s Upstairs will be hosting a tailgate party for the big game. From 3 to 6 p.m., you can enjoy a $15 buffet, and they’ll have drink specials and music to prepare for the event. Because Ben’s Upstairs is an offshoot of the iconic Ben’s Chili Bowl, the food will be delicious and filling -- comfort food with a southern touch.
You can register for the event on the Eventbrite page
. There is no cover to enter the bar, and the rooftop will also be open to the public the whole day and night. The game will be projected on giant screens throughout the bar.
