Ranch 45

The biggest game of the year calls for the best grub and watch parties. Need some inspiration for your roster? Look to these 14 spots for how to make the most of your Super Bowl LVI (or Puppy Bowl)—whether you’re celebrating at your favorite bar or from the comfort of your own home.

Bub’s @ the Ballpark

Just a block away from Petco Park, Bub’s is offering a Super Bowl drink menu consisting of $5 Bud Light drafts, seltzers, and cans, along with $5.50 Michelob Ultra, Mango Cart, and Kona Big Wave drafts for all the local beer enthusiasts. If you’d like to enjoy the game a block from the beach instead, you can find the same deals at Bub’s @ the Beach.

Super Bowl - Deck

Super Bowl – Deck

The Deck at Moonshine Flats

This downtown bar has lots of bites to satisfy your appetite. Fun $10 appetizers like cinnamon pretzel bites, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos corn dogs, and Fritos pies toe the line between sweet and savory and can be washed down with $7 Jack Daniel’s shots or one of their $25 Buena Cerveza bucket specials. If you need to step away from the screen, there’s an array of fun activities like corn hole, pool, and oversized beer pong.

335 Sixth Avenue, Petco Park 

Draft at Belmont Park

Beginning at 1 p.m., Draft’s Super Bowl pre-party will provide a tailgate experience with free tastings from Ballast Point, Tap Truck, and Patrón; discounted appetizers on pretzel bites and shredded beef nachos; and dozens of screens to watch the game. There’s also a chance to win prizes by participating in their Square Game, where all proceeds are being donated to Rady Children’s Hospital.

3146 Mission Boulevard, Mission Beach

Duck Dive

Pacific Beach gem Duck Dive is a great place to watch the big game, with drink and dining specials to last you well through halftime. Their $30 Touchdown Platter boasts chicken wings, calamari, fried pickles, and garlic Parmesan duck fat fries to create the ultimate cheat day meal. Plus, their $25 High Noon Buckets come with five seltzers to help you and your friends wash it all down.

Firehouse - Super Bowl

Firehouse American Eatery and Lounge

Firehouse American Eatery and Lounge

If you’re looking for much more than the typical Super Bowl watch party, Firehouse American Eatery and Lounge might be your spot. From 1:30 to 8 p.m., you can enjoy URBN pizza and Dirtybird Wings, bottle service, and a silent disco to go along with the game, which promises an unforgettable afternoon even if you don’t have the slightest interest in who wins the Super Bowl. General admission tickets are $29 and early-bird specials begin at $19, so purchase them here while they’re still available.

722 Grand Avenue, Pacific Beach

Harrah’s Resort Southern California

For a Vegas-inspired Super Bowl party, consider The Events Center at Harrah’s Resort SoCal. Expect appearances from former pro football players Doug Flutie, Shawne Merriman, and Nick Hardwick, luxury seating areas, and a tailgate-style buffet. Free general admission gets you in to watch the game, but if you want any of the special perks, purchase a $40 ticket upgrade for $100 VIP lounge access.

777 South Resort Drive, Funner

The Loma Club

The Loma Club is offering a tasty lineup and their outdoor patio to watch the clash between the Bengals and Rams. Their drink specials include You & Yours canned cocktail bucket specials and team-color Jell-O shots to stick with the Super Bowl spirit. For food, they’re featuring a housemade chili, meatball hoagies, or you can step it up a notch with their chili cheese fries.

2960 Truxtun Road, Liberty Station

Mavericks Beach Club

Mavericks Beach Club is hoping to replicate the fun on the field with their own Super Bowl Super Yard. The outdoor patio will be decked out with a football simulator, lawn games, and an LED screen to enjoy the game and create a miniature stadium setting. If you need any extra incentive, the bar will be offering $4–$5 drink specials all game long and raffling away two 55-inch LED TVs to a couple of lucky patrons.

860 Garnet Avenue, Pacific Beach 

Moonshine Beach

Though the 49ers fell just short of reaching Super Bowl LVI, San Diego’s home for the red and gold is still hosting the big game in style. Moonshine Beach’s Super Bowl menu includes $8 shots of Jack Daniel’s and Captain Morgan and $30–$35 buckets of beer and wine. We recommend arriving a couple of hours before the 3:30 p.m. kickoff to stake out a spot on their outdoor patio and catch every play of the game on their 10-foot LED screen.

1165 Garnet Avenue, Pacific Beach

Moto Deli

For those looking for a main course that’s less messy compared to wings or ribs, Moto Deli’s BLT or Turketta Sandwich offers a tasty, but less sloppy alternative. Whether you want your sandwich hot or cold, or want to try their local craft, beer, wine or Kombucha, Moto’s Deli offers a Mediterranean and Southern-inspired sandwich lunch that allows you to focus on the game without having to worry about spilling BBQ sauce on your shirt.

1076 North Coast Highway 101, Encinitas

Ranch 45

Whether your passion is for cheese-filled delights or heavenly smoked barbecue, Ranch 45’s SmokeHouse Tailgate Pick Up menu contains decadent versions of all the game-day classics. You can share the $25 burnt ends nacho dip or the $15 country-style baked mac and cheese with friends, but you may want the $30 half rack smoked back ribs all for yourself. Order before February 9 and pick up your order on February 13 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

512 Via de la Valle, Solana Beach

The Rooftop Bar at Mission Pacific

Root for the West Coast team with good food and great ocean views. The Rooftop Bar at Mission Pacific is offering sips and snacks curated by Chef Roberto Alcocer while you watch the game. Guests wanting a more private experience can book a Big Game Cabana package with your own private 44-inch HDTV, shaded loungers, valet, and wifi.

Smokey and the Brisket

La Mesa’s Smokey and the Brisket is a wise choice for anyone hosting a large Super Bowl party this year. Their $250 Super Brisket Party Meal and their $200 Hail Mary Poker Party Meal are ideal for groups of 15 or more, with plentiful sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw, and big slabs of ribs to share.
