Houston may be one year removed from hosting arguably the most exciting football game of all time, but our bars and restaurants are just as excited for this year’s final game taking place in Minneapolis. You’ll find watch parties, game day food and drinks specials, and so many television screens it’ll make you feel like you're at the stadium.
Revelry on Richmond
1613 Richmond Ave
This Montrose game day go-to spot is stocked with 40 rotating local and craft brews, signature cocktails, an outdoor patio and so many TVs that there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Come early to grab a table for your crew and bucket of beers, because this joint will get packed soon before the coin-toss. The great thing is, you don’t have to worry about parking. Valet services will be available throughout the evening.
1777 Walker St. (inside the Marriott Marquis hotel)
In the center of Avenida Houston, the Marriott Marquis’s sports-themed restaurant and bar may be named for a Houston Astros legend, but the focus will be on football this weekend. With a multi-level bar, personal TVs in all booths and throughout the dining areas, handheld eats such as their popular brisket tacos, and picturesque views of downtown, Biggio’s provides an elevated watch party experience.
St. Danes Bar & Grille
502 Elgin St
Looking for a dog-friendly watching experience? St. Danes is calling your name. This Midtown mainstay is always a favorite of sports fans and their pooches looking to catch a good game on the tube. The large outdoor area and plasma screen TVs at every corner also make for a relaxed, open-air experience.
Beer Market Co.
Two locations: 920 Studemont St, Suite 900 & 3304 Milam St
If all you care about is keeping an eye on Tom Brady – this is the place for you. TVs line the majority of the restaurant’s wall space, so much so that some are just three feet away from the next. No matter which way you turn, be assured that you won’t miss a second of the action. To boot, bask in the glory of 24 all-time favorite and rotating beers on draft, their boomin’ Mac ‘n Cheese Burger and a fried cheesecake to finish it off. Let’s see if you stave off that food coma until after the final whistle.
Five locations: 5114 Kirby Dr, 2820 White Oak Dr, 2000 Bagby st, 1012 Congress St and 1010 Highway 6 N
Now with five locations around Houston, there’s a Christian’s Tailgate wherever you are. Choose any location from this award-winning bar and grill to catch the big game. Enjoy open air seating at most locations, delicious menu items, and service that customers rave about. Pro tip: their signature burger has made national ‘Top 10’ lists.
Big Game Specials: $3 shots and $18 buckets of beer
Take out Specials: 15 Guest Package – 48 wings, 30 sliders, chips and salsa. $100 + tax

801 St. Emanuel St.
Consistently rated as one of Houston’s top watch bars, Lucky’s is hosting a viewing party for the biggest football game of the year at their East Village location (right by BBVA Stadium). What we love about Lucky’s is their sizable patio and huge indoor standing area, just in case you aren’t able to find a table.
