The games are over and the field is set for Super Bowl 54 in Miami this weekend.
Now while the Los Angeles Rams might have failed to earn a shot at the Lombardi Trophy, there are still plenty of people in Los Angeles anxiously awaiting this year’s Super Bowl Sunday matchup between the San Francisco 49ers, the owners of the league’s best defense, and the Kansas City Chiefs, the owners of the best offense.
While plenty of people are solidifying their guest list for their own Super Bowl parties, Downtown also has a great list of bars and restaurants that will be pulling out all the stops for Super Bowl Sunday.
Below, Los Angeles Downtown News has put together a list of nine great places to watch the Super Bowl in Downtown.
The Superbowl will be held on Sunday, Feb. 2 and kick off is at 3:30 p.m.
700 Jackson St.
Game Plan: This Arts District space features two rooms to watch the big game, but the main room is where most of the action will happen. Catch the game on a projector screen in the main room and enjoy bites from Highland Hickory and Poutine Brothers. There will be prize handouts throughout Superbowl Sunday. The best part? No cover. A full list of the specials for the evening have not been released as of press time.
Brack Shop Tavern

Clayton’s Public House has one of the more gorgeous interiors in Downtown, mixed with great eats and an even more robust drink option.
