Upscale Super Bowl Party with food?

shnigglebob Jan 24, 2007 08:04 PM

Does a party like this exist in San Francisco? My friend would like to watch the Super Bowl but in a surrounding that is more upscale than your ordinary sports bar. I let him know that I don't think San Francisco throws a party like that... maybe in Vegas or LA or something... Anyone have any suggestions for my Super Bowl enthusiast friend?

    You can try Willie Mays Skybox Lounge. http://www.williesbox.com/events/Supe...

    But I'm just looking for a fun bar with good food to go for Super Bowl, any suggestions?

      Sauce in Hayes Valley is doing a superbowl party with flatscreen tvs, and they have great food!

          Anyone been to Fanatics on Army Street. I received a couple of mailers from them. They are an upscale sports bar with pool tables.

              I found out that the View Lounge at the Downtown Marriott is going to open up early at 2:30pm and show the Super Bowl on 3 plasma tvs. No cover charge and they are also going to have a bloody mary bar. That might be as upscale as it gets.

                Ask at Seasons at the Four Seasons. Not sure but there's a bar area with TV.

                  My friends and I went to T-Rex for brunch several times last year on Sundays to watch a morning game or two and have a nice eye-opener. Apparently they are considering doing something for the Super Bowl--their lunch and dinner menus have received mixed reviews here, but it would definitely fit your desire for more "upscale" than your ordinary sports bar. Unfortunately for you, it is in Berkeley, not San Francisco.

                  Another place that might be up your alley is Acme Chophouse, right on Willie Mays Plaza at the ballpark.

                        Personally, I detest all Orwellian mass displays of testosterone fueled sports insanity. Er...sorry. Anyhow, why not rent a hotel suite with a wide screen TV and cater a party for friends and relatives? The only reason I'm even responding to your post is that I just discovered an absolutely wonderful caterer (GREAT lox!) aviouslydelicious.com. They're in Marin and serve the whole Bay Area. Avi Cohen is the owner. You can see their menu on the website.

                          Does that mean you don't like football? :)

                            Possibly niki has had a change of mind in a year.
