Miami may not be playing host to the actual Super Bowl game this year, but that doesn’t stop the hottest city on the planet from celebrating the NFL’s biggest night in style. With different-styles of watch parties being planned all over town, we found some of the most coveted and hard to top spots to enjoy this year’s battle of the pigskins.
There is nothing better than a poolside game day at the Shore Club. That being said, no Super Bowl would be complete without a trip to the Shore Club and all its festivities. This year, the top rated hotel will be holding a watch party inclusive of game day picnic fare favorites like hot dogs, burgers, pulled pork and BBQ selections. The hotel will be showing the game on two mammoth televisions poolside, as well as a 15 foot projection screen. While the event is open and free to visitors, to ensure a comfy seat, you may wish to reserve a table or cabana, which start at a $400 minimum.
The Perry Hotel South Beach
If what you crave while watching this year’s big game is a laid back rooftop atmosphere, then the Perry Hotel in South Beach is calling your name. Nestled above the aforementioned hotel rooftop, stunning cabanas surround a seemingly endless pool with sweeping views of the ocean. As for game time, the scene at the rooftop is more tailored to families wanting a stylish and fun place to celebrate the NFL’s biggest night with all the comforts of cabanas and full-service for game time appetizers. (Minus the adult beverages…no liquor license on the rooftop).
This year, the Lobby Lounge will be the place to enjoy the Super Bowl on the grounds of the 300-acre Miami resort. Always an elegant retreat, Turnberry Isle will offer its guests of the game a comfortable pub-like setting without all the pub-infused fuss. Big screen televisions will fill the venue, along with tasty appetizers served during the game. The resort’s impressive wine and beer selections will be hard to pass up throughout the duration of the game. Cost ranges depending on your choice of food and beverage.
Nestle away on the upscale island of Brickell Key, the Mandarin Oriental will be holding a poolside watch party for this year’s Super Bowl sure to offer only the finest and most comfortable atmosphere for guests. Traditional football bubbly (aka buckets of beer) are served, ($20 domestic, $25 imported), as well as countless gourmet tailgating fare options. Prices vary depending on your choice of food and beverage, but may we recommended trying a little bit of everything, as the menu is divine.
The Rusty Pelican
The newly-renovated dining room at The Rusty Pelican on Key Biscayne not only offers stunning views of Miami’s Brickell Avenue and Central Business District, but you will feel like you are floating on the crystal waters of Biscayne Bay as you cheer your favorite team to victory this Super Bowl. With six flat-screen televisions and an all-day happy hour featuring beer, wine, and appetizers…it is a Sunday event that is not to be missed. Priced under $50 for the evening.
