San Francisco’s most epic Super Bowl watch party spots (2024)

By Christina Campodonico

With the San Francisco 49ers facing off against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Sunday, the Bay Area—for the most part—is gearing up to cheer on the Niners in what promises to be an epic rematch between the two teams.

While your couch may be a fine viewing spot for most run-of-the-mill movie fare, this might be one occasion where you’ll want to get out and be with a crowd. In that spirit, we’ve rounded up some of the best spots to watch this year’s Super Bowl around the Bay. From a swirling Taylor Swift roller disco party to an oyster-fueled fête on Polk Street, here are over a dozen ways to party on Super Bowl Sunday—even if you’re not into football or keeping score.

Swivel between co*cktails and a sculpture wall at True Laurel

A swanky co*cktail bar is not the usual scene for a raucous football party, but the Mission’s True Laurel is switching things up with its first-ever Super Bowl bash. (Reserve here.)

The upscale bar from Lazy Bear’s David Barzelay will serve American comfort food with a gourmet twist, including its signature dry-aged beef patty melt on slices of griddled pain de mie and twice-baked potatoes. But the real showpiece of the experience is the restaurant’s built-in Isamu Noguchi-inspired sculpture wall, where the big game will be projected.

🗓️ 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
📍 753 Alabama St., Mission

Roller disco with Swifties at Church of 8 Wheels

Some surmise that more young women will tune in this year due to Taylor Swift’s much-followed romance with Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. So we’ll see how many Gen Zs show up at Church of 8 Wheels’ rolling dance party on Sunday. Swift fans of all ages are welcome to swirl around and shake it off while the game (and Usher’s halftime show) are projected on a 20-foot screen.

Join the Chiefs tribe at BuzzWorks

Chiefs fans may be in the minority around here, but there’s one haven where Kansas Citians can assemble undisturbed by Niners devotees. Craft beer and sports bar BuzzWorks announced last week that it would ban 49ers fans from its bar for the Super Bowl and throw a “Chiefs Fans Only” celebration where the “faithful” could congregate. Bar owner Vlad Cood has since said that his words were taken out of context but advised that Niners fans might feel more comfortable at his establishment’s sister bar, Butter, across the street.
