With the Super Bowl fast approaching, it’s time to start staking out your spot for cold drinks, hot food, and a fun atmosphere during the game. If you’re looking for a great restaurant in the area to snag a table on the big Sunday, consider these five local picks:
1. Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar
1009 Poydras St, New Orleans
The vibrant atmosphere, fully stocked bar, and filling menu make Walk-On’s an obvious pick for Super Bowl fun. Hearty specialties like the Fried Louisiana Catfish, VooDoo Shrimp, and Cajun Ribeye are a welcome addition to traditional bar fare. Complement your meal with signature drinks like the Bench Warmer with Irish whiskey, Bacardi Gold Rum, or one of the two dozen drafts on the menu.
2. Allegro Bistro
1100 Poydras St, Suite 150, New Orleans
The upscale art deco atmosphere at Allegros Bistro doesn’t give off the vibe of a sports bar or pub, but the popular happy hour spot is known for hosting some of the best tailgating parties in the city during Saints home games. Enjoy juicy burgers, cocktails, and great music at the bar as you watch this year’s Super Bowl action!
3. House of Blues
225 Decatur St, New Orleans
Head to the New Orleans House of Blues to catch the Super Bowl while indulging in mouthwatering local specialties like VooDoo Oysters on the half shell. An extensive drink menu can cater to any taste, whether you’re after the signature Blackberry Shandy with moonshine, Sam Adams, and lemonade, or something as simple as a handcrafted vanilla cream soda. Located in the buzzing French Quarter, this is a great place to snag a table for the night.
4. Mugshots Grill and Bar
300 River Highlands Blvd, Covington
The Covington Mugshots has everything you could want from a laid-back sports bar and restaurant. They serve up game day favorites like boneless or traditional chicken wings in one of six sauces, and double well drinks for just $4. If you’re up for a challenge, you can always go for the Mugshot burger with three patties, six strips of bacon, and all the toppings. If you finish the burger in 12 minutes or less, it’s on the house.
2213 Florida St, Mandeville
Interference bills itself as Mandeville’s original sports bar. On football Sundays, bar food is available from noon to 1 a.m, and you’ll find NFL Ticket on DirectTV shown on a 10-foot HDTV projection TV along with eight other televisions throughout the bar. Pool tables, dart boards, and other games offer additional entertainment, making this a top coveted destination for Super Bowl Sunday.
