Here’s Where To Watch The Super Bowl In LA
Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium is just five days away, and if you haven’t made plans yet, it’s time to nail them down.
Most years, teams sponsor championship game viewing parties for fans. This year, there are no such celebrations in the works, so you’ll have to make do with L.A.’s myriad sports bars, parties and rowdy event planners. With that said, we scoped out the best places to watch throughout the city, including spots for people who want to make a day of it and folks who’d rather stay close to home.
Important reminder: We are still in a pandemic, and in L.A. County you have to prove you have been vaccinated to sit inside a bar, with the same requirement for bars and restaurants in the city of L.A. Unvaccinated people can sit outdoors. And you're supposed to wear a mask, except when actively eating or drinking. And if you're going to host or attend a viewing party at a private home, here are some tips to stay safe.
