Super Bowl Sunday: 25 Vail Valley bars and restaurants showing the game and offering specials
Everything Vail Valley
I’m from Atlanta. In terms of football, that means two things. First, I will inevitably be led on, believing my Falcons will win, only to be let down in the fourth quarter. Second, I’m stoked the Patriots are not in it this year. See Super Bowl LI for reference.
I’ve been excited about the 49ers since they started laying out their opponents in the early season. Patrick Mahomes may have built a nice fan base for the Chiefs, but the ‘Niners defense could cost him the title. Regardless of which team you’re rooting for – or if you’re just in it for the commercials, snacks and the Jennifer Lopez-Shakira co-headlining halftime show – check out this list of where to watch Super Bowl LIV in Vail and Beaver Creek. If your favorite spot isn’t included, call them to see what specials they may be offering.
Altitude Bar and Grill
Watch the game from any of 23 TVs, including a projector screen over 100 inches, test your skill by buying a square (or two), and keep the kids entertained with pool and Ping-Pong.
Newly remodeled with TVs on nearly every wall, get there early to grab a seat and receive free champagne at 3 p.m.
A viewing party unlike anything else in the valley, doors will open at 3:30 p.m., but only for those with reservations. Seats are $60 per person, and you are guaranteed a view and seat as they will be bringing in extra TVs, and only taking enough guests to fill the seats – no standing room here.
Rent a bowling lane for the duration of the Super Bowl (four hours) for $1000 and receive a $500 food and beverage credit. You can also rent a lane for the first or second half of the game (two hours) for $400, with a $200 food and beverage credit.
