Let’s get ready to rumble! Kickoff is less than 48 hours away, and you don’t have plans yet? Oh no! Well, we can fix that … but before we talk about where to watch the Super Bowl in Phoenixville, we wanted to pay a little homage to nearby Philadelphia, PA.
For starters, Philly native Michael Buffer, an MC for boxing, professional wrestling, and National Football League matches, is known for his trademarked catchphrase, “Let’s get ready to rumble!” I actually typed it as the first line of this article before I even knew that it’s a Philly thing … how cool is that?
It’s a Philly Thing!
When it comes to Philly, there are a few things that just make sense.
Like how we always cheer for our underdogs, no matter what. Or how we love our cheesesteaks (and will fight you if you try to tell us where to get the best one).
But there are some things that only locals would understand.
Things like why the Liberty Bell is such an important part of our city. Or how we can spot a tourist from a mile away (hint: they’re the ones asking where the Rocky steps are).
So if you’re not from the Philadelphia area, there’s a lot you might not understand about us. But that’s okay! We’re happy to share our city with you. Just don’t try to tell us how to do things because, well, it’s a Philly thing.
And, speaking of a Philly thing…
It’s Super Bowl weekend! Super Bowl LVII matches up the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles with a halftime show headlined by Rihanna.
Both teams have an impressive 14–3 record and boast two of the better offensive lines in the league, and the Eagles are just five sacks away from an NFL record.
Add in the fact that the Chiefs head coach, Andy Reid, previously served as the Eagles head coach from 1999-2012, and that Reid actually fired Nick Sirianni, the current Eagles Coach, in 2013 when he took over the Chiefs, and you have a seriously interesting dynamic and rivalry to contend with.
Speaking of rivalries, this game will mark the first time two brothers will play against each other in a Super Bowl, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, and Eagles center, Jason Kelce. Well, while their mom might not know who to root for, here in Phoenixville, PA, we are Philly all the way!
Phoenixville’s Bar Scene vs Philly’s Greasy Poles
Phoenixville, PA is home to a thriving bar scene, offering residents and visitors a variety of options to choose from when it comes to catching this year’s Super Bowl.
From rowdy, lively atmospheres to more relaxed, laid-back environments, there’s normally something for everyone in this charming town; however, while we don’t expect that there will be any bars that are laid-back this weekend, we don’t think it will be so rowdy that we need to grease the poles like they do in Philly. After all, we recently won the Super Bowl in 2018, defeating (or dare I say crushing) the favored New England Patriots 41-33.
Even four days after the win, fans filled the streets for the Super Bowl Parade, 20 people deep in some spots, from the stadium to our famous “Rocky” steps, to catch a glimpse of our Eagles.
“We were a bunch of underdogs,” shouted center Jason Kelce, channeling Rocky himself. “Bottom line is we wanted it more!”
“This Super Bowl championship is for you,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie told the vast crowd. “You are the most passionate and deserving sports fans on the planet. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
But, while we may already be planning next week’s championship parade down Broad Street, we need to watch the Eagles win the game first! Here’s where to watch the Super Bowl in Phoenixville…
Where to Watch the Super Bowl in Phoenixville
For many sports fans, finding the perfect spot to watch the game can be just as important as the game itself. Whether you’re a die-hard fan looking for a lively atmosphere or just looking for a place to enjoy good food and drinks while catching the highlights, choosing the right place to watch the Super Bowl can make or break your viewing experience.
Here are some factors to consider when choosing where to watch the Super Bowl in Phoenixville:
Atmosphere & Quality Viewing
When it comes to sports bars, the atmosphere can make or break the experience.
If you’re looking for a lively, rowdy atmosphere, you’ll want to look for a bar known for its energetic crowd and high noise level, such as PJ Ryans.
Bistro was closed for renovations the last time the Eagles went to the Super Bowl, but they are open now with the game (sound on) on both floors and projectors up and downstairs.
With lots of space, great sound, and a good amount of TVs, not to mention great food and drinks, you can’t go wrong with either of these options.
If you’re looking for a more relaxed, low-key experience, a quieter, more laid-back sports bar may be more your style. But, SORRY, there aren’t going to be any laid-back bars in Phoenixville for this game!
Food & Drinks
Whether you’re looking for pub-style food, craft beers, or classic cocktails, it’s important to consider the menu when choosing a sports bar. Make sure the bar you choose has a menu that fits your tastes and budget, so you can enjoy your game-day experience to the fullest.
The Rec Room by Conshohocken Brewing Co. is planning a Super Bowl Watch Party featuring $4.20 wings by the dozen (we see what you did there), $5 Mike & Merrill Hazy IPA Pints, $8 Chicken Nachos, and $10 Philly Cheese Steaks.
Home Watch Parties
Of course, many fans will watch the big game from home on their comfy couches in front of their big-screen TVs. If that sounds like your ideal place to watch the Super Bowl in Phoenixville, and if you plan to order food, we suggest you get your orders in ASAP. Like right now.
