Best Places to Watch the Super Bowl

People from across the country and the world have chosen to make Arizona their home. Most are quick to fully embrace the amazing weather, beautiful landscapes and outdoor recreation opportunities that define the enviable Arizona lifestyle. However, they are usually a little slower to relinquish the support for their hometown sports teams. But as a place with people from lots of other places, Arizona offers a great selection of bars and restaurants where sports fans can catch a game, enjoy a cool drink and find nearly everyone cheering for their team.   

“Arizona has truly captured the excitement of hosting the biggest events, which includes delivering an unforgettable experience for sports fans, whether they’re visiting us from out of state or live right here,” says Debbie Johnson, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “With so many great sports-focused restaurants and bars, there’s always a close place to enjoy a great bite to eat and local craft brew while cheering on your favorite teams.”

Here are just a few suggestions of many great options for places to watch the Super Bowl, or any game, across the Valley of the Sun, courtesy of the Arizona Office of Tourism.

Pub Rock Live in Scottsdale spends most of its time as a live music venue showcasing upcoming bands, Phoenix-based artists and even well-known acts. But during football season, Pub Rock Live transforms into the biggest Arizona home for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Now the venue typically welcomes more than 600 fans for each Chiefs game during the NFL season. With their team competing in the Big Game, Pub Rock is hosting a series of Kansas City Chiefs fan events, live music, parties during the week leading up to the game. And of course, there’s an “epic” free watch party on Feb. 12. For more information, visit
