If you haven’t got a large flat-screen TV at home, or you do, but you’d rather eat a ghost pepper than host a party there, your best bet is to head out to one of the many bars around the island that will be showing the big game.
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year, and the commercials between plays have become almost as important as the game itself. Even if you have absolutely no interest in football for the other 364 days of the year, you can still have a fantastic time at a busy venue where you’ll get caught up in the atmosphere and find yourself cheering on a team before the night is through.
The Lone Star Bar & Grill is definitely a top pick for watching the Super Bowl. It has indoor and outdoor seating with multiple TVs and exactly the kind of cuisine required to make the day a party. Classic football fare, including wings, nachos, potato skins and sliders, feature on the appetizer menu – and then there are $15 buckets of Coors Light with five beers to a bucket.
Just like other venues hosting Super Bowl events this year, there will be no reservations taken, so get there early to get a good seat.
Coconut Joe’s is a terrific spot on the Seven Mile strip. With an enviable position under a large Poinciana tree, great casual seating, and a big screen so everyone has an unfettered view of the game, many fans will be gravitating toward this outdoor bar. Wings are only 75 cents each, so that helps.
Sure, you could sit inside, but who would want to? No matter what time of the year it is, the breezes are always blowing over the large deck, and that’s where a crowd will camp out for the night.
If you just aren’t a fan of the sun and crave the air-conditioning no matter what, Legendz could be your place of choice to watch the Super Bowl. It has multiple screens and two bars with lots of seating at both, as well as booths and tables well positioned on its two-tiered floor.
Get there early for a terrific seat at the bar and happy hour specials.
Clubhouse, Treasure Island
The name says it all, doesn’t it? It should come as no surprise that the Clubhouse has the largest HD TV on Seven Mile, not to mention an expansive outdoor deck area where sports are projected onto a big screen that can be seen from down the road.
Expect bucket-o’-beer specials, along with tasty wings and pizza.
Beaches, Grand Harbour
Beaches sports no less than 37 HD TVs, offers five different flavors of wings at 60 cents apiece, and will have Coors Light beer bucket specials running throughout the day.
If you live near that part of the island, Beaches is a good choice because it will be a short crawl home. It also has ample seating, so even if you’re running a bit late, you should still be able to snag a chair.
Bar Jack, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman
If you like a bit more sophistication in your Super Bowl day, you may want to consider Bar Jack at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. Folks will be gathered around the bar to watch the game, and there will be drink and snack specials on the menu.
It certainly isn’t black tie, but you’ll get black-tie service.
