Where to Watch the {2017} Super Bowl LI in Jersey City

Written by:

For our Jersey City readers, celebrating Super Bowl LI is an easy feat this Sunday. With sports bars loaded with flat screen TVs to unbeatable drink specials and apps, JC is chock full of places to celebrate game day. And for Hoboken residents looking for a change of pace, it’s just a hop, skip, and jump away. Kick back for kickoff and beat the crazy crowds in these cozy, comfy taverns that are sure to make you feel right at home, if you’re not catching the game from your own living room {or in the Mile Square}.

Brightside Tavern {141 Bright Street, Jersey City}

OK, where do we start: Brunch, perhaps? Brightside’s super boozy brunch from 11 am to 2 pm this Super Bowl Sunday means an entrée and 3 drinks for only $2o, followed by games from 2 to 6 pm {beer pong, flip cup, shuffleboard, darts, and more!}. And Brightside SRSLY knows the way to our hearts with $5 glasses of wine during the puppy bowl at 3 pm — yes and yes

Corkscrew Bar & Grill {61 Congress Street}

If you’ve been around the block a few times in JC, you know about Corkscrew — a traditional sportsbar spot for over 50 years, Corkscrew is the perfect place to watch the game on one of 7 flatscreen TVs while you enjoy their drink specials and tunes on the juke box {and let’s not forget WiFi, so we can tweet about all the good commercials while we’re scarfing down their yummy cajun waffle fries and pork tacos}.

Greene Hook {70 Green Street, Jersey City}

Greene Hook is having a Super Bowl party – $4 drafts, $5 glasses of wine, $7 cocktails, and a chance to win a $50 gift card. Additionally, if you’re not a football-crazed fan, you can hang out for the shuffleboard tournament because free giveaways and prizes are always a good excuse to go out. The 25 cent wings all night and $1 oysters sold us though, TBH.

HopsScotch {286 Washington Street, Jersey City}

Super Bowl Sunday at HopsScotch is literally taking “game day” to the next level. Playtime isn’t restricted to just football – sure they’ve got 21 TVs, but they’ve also got shuffleboard, darts, and games {Jenga, Connect 4, chess, the list goes on…}, so that you can spend the day with family/friends and for the mamas and papas — not worry about the kiddies getting bored while you get your crazy sports fan on. They’ve also got your pregame covered with $4 drafts until 4 pm and $4 specialty cocktails from 4 pm to close, and beer and whisky lovers can also rejoice — HopScotch boasts 40 craft beers on tap and over 250 whiskey options ready to go.

Lucky 7 Tavern {322 Second Street, Jersey City}

Consider yourself lucky if you’re spending Super Bowl Sunday at Lucky 7. Why? $2 PBR cans, $4 Sierra Nevada cans, $5 Jim Beam rye shots, $3 select drafts, $3.50 well drinks, and $4.50 PBR cans + Heaven Hill shots all day. FYI: Sundays are industry nights, so bar & restaurant workers drink 50% off. Catch the big game on 7 flat screen TVs while you take advantage from 12-8 pm happy hour, because truthfully, who isn’t starting early?

O’Hara’s Downtown {172 First Street, Jersey City}

Football Sundays at O’Haras Downtown are a must. Aside from their delish menu {their famous wings, to be exact}, they’ve got over 15 TVs and a projector, so it’s nearly impossible to miss a play.

PJ Ryan’s {292 Barrow Street, Jersey City}

Cozy up at PJ Ryan’s tavern to watch the game. Pros: The first 50 people to get there before kickoff get two free prize pool boxes, no cover, eight TVs, $15 off 20-piece wing buckets, $3 beer specials and other drink specials. Cons: the last Sunday Funday of the season has got us feeling some type of way, for sure. You know what that means – make it a good one!

Third Base Sports Cafe {116 Newark Ave, Jersey City}

Since you can’t tailgate the Super Bowl IRL, join Third Base Sports Cafe for their in-house tailgate party {it’s basically the same thing, right?}. Tix for open bar and food are $30 if you buy them ahead of time, and $40 at the door.

Villa Borghese III {475 Washington Boulevard, Jersey City}

Live entertainment? Ohhhh yes. VB3 is having a DJ {Alex Kasanova} to pump up the party this Sunday and there’s no cover charge. They’ve also got free valet indoor parking, but it’s super close to the PATH and less than 5 minutes from the Holland Tunnel for those who are coming from out of town. 25 HDTVs, three big screen projectors, and Sunday football specials sweeten the deal: $12 Coors/Yuengling towers, $3 Coors/Yuengling drafts, $3 domestic bottles, sangria bowls, but let’s not forget about their game day menu {it’ll be easy to get down with loaded tater tots & chicken nachos}.

White Star Bar {230 Brunswick Street, Jersey City}

White Star is the perf go-to spot for eating in or taking out this Super Bowl Sunday. Go snag a spot at the bar and order their yummy bar bites  or burgers {the best in JC, BTW}, or take out wings to bring back for some binge eating in front of your own TV screen. Either way, stopping by White Star this Sunday is a must.

Zeppelin Hall Biergarten and Restaurant {88 Liberty View Drive, Jersey City}

It’s a “Pretzilla” …omg ^via

Free parking? No cover charge? Giant stuffed Pretzillas? Check. Check. CHECK. $4 Coors Light from open to close and over 100 beers + cocktails to choose from — IDK about you, but we’re loving this beer situation-turned-nosh-sesh. Plus, Baconfest is still going on – talk about the best of both worlds.
