Written by: Katrina Zawojski Watch LA Football

It’s nearly Super Bowl LIII (that’s 53 in roman numerals, neophytes) which means that certain expectations—nope, demands—must be met between fan and whoever is in control of the remote: unobstructed views of the game, cold beer, foods that require dip and an atmosphere that says, “Anything is possible.” This year, leave the audibles to the quarterbacks by choosing from our list of carefully-vetted destinations that are sure to enhance your Super Bowl Sunday.

Super Bowl Like a Rockstar

Rock & Brews

Like it’s namesake implies, Rock & Brews is committed to delivering a mighty craft brew selection and American regional food alongside a rock ‘n’ roll vibe. This establishment aims to not just feed you but entertain you, which explains their 13-foot high “Megatron” video screen, a dozen other televisions and overall sports-saturated personality.

Native Knowledge: Bring your furry fans to the party—this outpost is dog-friendly!

Maestro’s of the Sea

FISHBAR

FISHBAR represents the cream of the crop in the sports bar/restaurant hybrid category. Thanks to an army of flat screens, there’s not a bad seat in the (nautical) house. Their seafood-inspired menu even applies to their popular FISHBAR Bloody Mary which, among other things, comes garnished with a jumbo shrimp.

Native Knowledge: Prime real estate can be found in a pair of banquette-style seating located in the back of the restaurant; however, you have to be a party of eight or more and call in advance to reserve them.

South Bay’s Sweetheart

Hangar Inn

Like Tom Brady, this sports bar is a veteran! They’ve been flipping burgers and pouring beer for over 60 years with no signs of slowing down. Regulars love it’s no fuss, down-to-earth vibe while outsiders are surprised to learn that they make their own onion rings, sauces and potato chips.

Get Ready to Rumble

American Junkie

Expect the crowd to lean younger at this popular post-grad hangout, where thirsty customers can saddle up to not one but two bustling bars. Junkie’s high-energy feeling and sprawling spaces inside and out deliver fans a desirable game day experience on Hermosa Beach’s already rowdy plaza.

Native Knowledge: On the east side of the bar you’ll find an ice chest filled with frozen treats that are free for the licking!

Have Some Class

Enterprise Fish

If you’re looking for a slightly more sophisticated Super Bowl experience, Santa Monica’s Enterprise Fish is your match. What tipped us off was the menu touting locally-sourced ingredients, proper tablecloths, and nicely-upholstered booths—yet fear not fanatics, for craft beer and flat screens are calling your name.

Native Knowledge: You’ll have a more quiet and intimate viewing party sitting outside on their heated patio compared to their bustling interior spaces.

The Brixton
