Watch the Super Bowl at These Classic Boston Sports Bars
Cask 'n Flagon
Open for over 35 years, this famous bar on the corner of Brookline Avenue is a landmark location in the city. The menu includes classics like wings, ribs, and burgers, but also offers a few creative bites like a fig and goat cheese bruschetta. Enjoy the game on one of their forty televisions or on either of the 80-inch screens.

A Fenway staple, Jerry Remy's has two giant screens surrounded by eight smaller screens directly behind their bar.

While Kings may not be a traditional Boston bar, it's a great place to check out the game if you're looking for some variety. Look for 16 bowling lanes, six pool tables, four skee ball tables, and two shuffle board tables — just in case football isn't your thing. If it is, don't fear: There are 32 televisions and six giant projector screens, plus an extensive food menu.
L Street Tavern
Open since the 1930s, this bar was made famous by the movie Good Will Hunting, which filmed scenes inside the local bar. It's a great place to watch the game surrounded by tradition.
An ode to the original McGreevy's (opened in 1894 and credited as being America's first sports bar), the new McGreevy's, a replica, has been open since 2008. Dedicated to all things Boston, the walls are lined with nostalgic memorabilia, and the space has two floors of televisions, including a giant projector downstairs. Order traditional Irish pub fare and classic Super Bowl offerings, and wash them down with one of the bar's many cocktails, like the Boston 1894.
Sports Grille Boston
Boasting nearly 100 TVs, every seat in the house has a great view at this sports bar. Get there in time to grab a booth, each with its own personal television, and watch the game in total comfort. Try the nacho-zilla-saurus (just because it has a cool name) or any of the traditional menu items like fire rolly fingers or Sugar Ray's club turkey.
Open since 1976, this Boston classic also has locations in Quincy and Norwell and is known for its chowder and famous Bobby Orr sandwich. Decked out with tons of sports paraphernalia from local Boston teams, the two-floor bar is equipped with over forty televisions, plus a projector screen, making it a great spot to cheer for the Pats this Sunday.
One of the oldest bars in the city, it's been open since 1780 and is said to have been one of the first buildings to be rebuilt after the British burned down Charleston. Rich in history, it was once the watering hole of George Washington and Paul Revere. The menu includes traditional tavern fare like onion rings, burgers, and shepherd's pie, as well as some modern items like Thai lettuce wraps.
