Sports bars to watch NFL in Taipei

What would be a good public place in Taipei or nearby that I can watch US football playoffs and/or Superbowl in February?

  1. The GMT + 8 time zone of Taipei is not conducive to live football coverage in bars. Do you anticipate a time delayed broadcast?

      Taipei is 13 hours ahead of the USA Eastern Time Zone. The game will be broadcast live there - the OP just has to find a bar that is open then, hope the hotel has cable or find local friends who have access.

        A young man traveling with our group now in Israel (7 hours ahead of EST) watched live NFL this past weekend. Got to bed at 5AM. But it was available.

        live is preferred, but will settle for time delayed.

          The Superbowl will start at about 7 in the morning in Taipei. Some bars in Mexico and S.A. open at off hours when a high profile soccer game is being played somewhere else in the world. I suspect the Superbowl would prompt some schedule adjustments, also.
          Nothing wrong with a bloody mary at kickoff!
