On Sunday, February 5 millions of Americans will congregate to celebrate one of their favorite past times – the Super Bowl! Super Bowl Sunday is one of the best days of the year. It’s filled with food, friends, family, and of course, football. If you’re in Alaska for this Super Bowl Sunday, there are plenty of ways to get out and socialize in your Alaska car rentals or stay in and celebrate.
The Best Sports Bars in Anchorage
If you’re just visiting for business or otherwise, and don’t have a place to go outside your hotel, then you’ll be looking for a good sports bar to watch the Super Bowl. Anchorage is full of them. Please make sure to leave the Alaska car rentals at home and walk or take a cab for these celebrations!
One of the best sports bars in Anchorage is Crossroads Lounge. This place is exactly what you want from a pub! Food including hot dogs and chili (great for Super Bowl Sunday!) and a range of beers on tap you can settle in to watch the Super Bowl on one of their numerous TVs surrounding the bar. Bored at a commercial? Strike up a game of pool on one of their tables.
Chances are, Crossroads Lounge may be a little full. Why not try Steve’s Spenard Sports Pub? Steve’s is reasonably priced with affordable pub food to keep you nourished throughout the Super Bowl. You definitely won’t have trouble finding a good viewing spot in this pub – TVs surround the main seating area so you won’t miss the winning touch down.
Finally, we’d recommend Bootleggers, particularly if you’re traveling with someone who may not be as interested in the Super Bowl as you. On top of having TVs for sports, there is a dartboard, shuffle board, and pinball machine to keep other patrons occupied. The bar shares a menu with the restaurant Flattop, and therefore offers delicious pub and late night food. They also offer craft beer, canned and bottled beer, wine, and a range of tasty cocktails so you have plenty to choose from.
