Which Seattle Bars Are Having Super Bowl Parties?

Posted by on Mon, Jan 27, 2014 at 12:43 PM


...Slog reader Christina asks. I'm guessing any bar in Seattle that has a TV will be a party, and you better get there early if you want a seat—kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. THIS SUNDAY. Here are the parties we've heard about so far... add more in comments! GO BIRDS!

BAIT SHOP on Capitol Hill: the game projected on a big screen with "UNLIMITED PLATES OF NACHOS for just $10! Seriously. No limit," Beast Mode shots for $3 every time the Hawks score, and, if Marshawn Lynch scores a TD, "free Skittles will rain down like rainbow-colored hail from the heavens of victory."

MILLER'S GUILD downtown: with the game projected onto the restaurant wall ("much bigger then a home television") and a football-themed menu from chef Jason Wilson including Legion of Lettuce Wraps (chicken lettuce wraps) and Beast Cakes (appetizer-size crab cakes), as well as meat off the restaurant’s gigantor wood-fired grill. Also: barrel-aged cocktails, wine, and beer.

POQUITOS on Capitol HIll: serving the 12th Man Margarita—"the lovely blue margaritas (which will certainly help the Seahawks win)"—for $7, plus a special game day happy hour from at 3pm through the end of the game with $4 draft beers and $4 guacamole.

LUNCHBOX LABORATORY in South Lake Union: free appetizers, drink specials, and (you know) more... UPDATE: "upstairs in the Rumpus Room with four big screen TVs," plus a Football Specials Menu including "Every Day I'm Russelin" and "The Richard Sherman Talk Show" burgers.

VON TRAPP'S on Capitol Hill: the game on all 14 screens, plus happy hour food items, plus "football pretzels," chili cheese dogs, and a couple different kinds of hot wings, plus half-liters of Bayern VT Lager for $4.

BRAVE HORSE TAVERN in South Lake Union: the game on "Big Bertha—our big screen," plus "plenty of beer, blue and green jello shots and slushies, and special game day snacks" (no particulars on prices given).

THE TRIPLE DOOR downtown: family-friendly viewing and VIP box suites in the theater, with full menu service from Wild Ginger, plus more viewing in the lounge (but no specials, apparently).

• And here's every damn sports bar we have listed in Seattle... they'll definitely be beasting out.

I would call ahead. It does stand to reason that all bars/taverns/restaurants in the city/county/state with a TV monitor will be open Sunday. However, a fellow at my local super market said at least one bar will be closed, Sand Point Bar & Grill (do double check). And get there early as I believe they will be madhouses and expensive.

Suggestion: have your own party. As long as you have a TV, make it a pot luck and have guests bring food & drink. Would be much cheaper and you could have a game pool. I know. I've hosted several parties in the past that have been well received.

If you watch the Super Bowl at a bar you need more friends. It's to be watched at a house party.

Was at Triple Door last night for the amazing Cheryl Wheeler show (she killed it). Warning: the food was not what it used to be. Burnt tofu, and the pad thai was seasoned poorly.

Just a warning, because food wise, it was not a good night for them.

Go osprey!

Or, come back osprey! They migrate, so there are no osprey within a thousand miles of Seattle right now.

(For entertainment purposes only. Not intended to be a factual number of miles. Cars can't drive on trains.)

@5/6 and @3 by proxy, or if you have friends, but none of them like "sportsball." I went to a bar for the NFC championship (The Wurst Place in SLU) and it was an excellent time.

What about family-friendly places? We don't have tv, and my kids are making some chatter about wanting to watch it. I don't completely believe them, but I'd like to have a place in mind just in case they're serious.

@9: maybe the library will open their bug room again?

(The main blurb says the Triple Door will be open and bills it as "family friendly"...but I would find another spot if you're looking for food... Hanoumatoi's [@4] experience mirrors mine. Whatever luster Wild Ginger had as far food goes vaporized several years ago. The food just utterly sucks these days.)

@9 - Hilliard's Brewing in Ballard is showing the game, dog & kid friendly. Featuring their '12th Can' beer.

But which bars will be having the I don't give a flying fuck about sportsball parties? I'd like to be sure to patronize one of those.

going to scope out triple door since they have reservations for a table and no cover -- given that most sports bars are going to be bursting at the seams I'll take a table with a side plate of burnt thai.

Any bar that doesn't have a TV?


Every night is a bad night at Wild Ginger.

@9 - You've been telling your kids about football? Don't you think they're a little young for that kind of talk?

The Skylark in West Seattle is all ages and just got a huge screen up. Not many all ages spots around we parents can feel comfortable having their kids and get a drink.
