Superbowl? Nice but not too nice.

In from LA for superbowl and looking for place to take business associates. Some pretty serious foodies, but were also going to enjoy drinking and yelling at the TV. Pub with good/great food would be perfect.

Thanks in advance.

    The Hyatt downtown (near Chinatown) has a really nice Sports Bar in their basement. It's your typical sports bar fare (greasy bar food), but good enough I think. And, that bar doesn't seem to get nearly as crowded as others I have been to.

    There is also a Hooter's in Chinatown. I'm a big fan of their wings, but have never looked to them as a sports bar per se.

      Good wings, but who wants to pay extra for bleu cheese and celery? Not a knock on you, but it doesn't make sense for Hooters to do that.

      Crystal City Sprots Pub has decent bar food and is an easy metro trip from the city

        Just to toss some things out - all have decent to above average food, but nothing outstanding.

        - The new Stoney's - 14th and P - now has larger and more screens.

        - Bungalow Billiards in Shirlington has some of the best hot wings around and a few large screens. All other food on the menu seems to be above average.

          Bailey's in Ballston Mall seems to be a popular place for catching the game.

            If you are in Baltimore James Joyce near the harbor has tv's around the bar and great Irish food.

              Can't vouch for the food, but DC has an ESPN Zone in downtown DC.

                I don't know about the DC location, but I know that last year at the Baltimore location they required customers to spend a certain amount of $/hr to watch the game and there was a long wait to get in.

                If you are going to be in Baltimore there are alot of better options that are more relaxed and without children (where you can feel free to get drunk and shout obscenities).
