Decided yet which bar you’ll be crashing on Sunday to watch Super Bowl XLVIII?

If you’re still on the fence, here’s a definitive list of bars, restaurants and lounges in Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights or Bed-Stuy where the game will be shown.

Actually, the number of bars showing the game is much larger than what you see below. But the Brooklyn Reader has distilled it down to nine solid ones that are definitely making plans to offer drink specials, good food, at least two wide-screen televisions and a cool atmosphere!

And feel free to add to this list, if you know of a really good one you don’t see here!

Fort Greene/Clinton Hill

Mullanes Bar & Grill: Neighborhood favorite Mullanes will be drawing the crowds this Sunday with a customer raffle — among the giveaway prizes are a 32” TV. Besides this, the bar will offer its traditional weekend brunch fare. Most delectables (including French Crepes and a Quiche du Jour) will run you under $15. They also have a consistent $6 beer and a shot special.

WHEN: Super Bowl Time!

WHERE: 71 Lafayette Avenue


Putnam’s: This hip pub has a sort of Euro-Americana vibe, in a cool, well traveled kind of way… Get it? Well if not, check it out on Super Bowl to catch a really good vibe, great service and yummy well prepared vegetarian-friendly food. They’re having a Super Bowl Party with $4 draft beer specials, wings and nachos, and they will showing the game on two ginormous t.v. screens. They also have a downstairs area, in case you want to steal away and get a quick dance on.

WHEN: 5:00pm

WHER: 419 Myrtle Avenue


Crown Heights

The Crown Inn: Great beer selection, reasonably priced drinks, friendly bartenders and the inside of this place is so fresh! If you’re in or around the Crown Heights area, check out Crown Inn for a unique new experience. One YELP reviewer said: Love it here! This is my favorite neighborhood bar. Always cozy, a really comfortable local feel.  Great for happy hour, quiet enough for conversation and stocked with a ton of great beers. It gets busy on weekend nights, which is also fun! A little crowded, but in a good way.

WHEN: Super Bowl Time

WHERE: 724 Franklin Avenue


Catfish: If you’re looking for someplace to get a good meal AND watch the Super Bowl, where the focus necessarily will not have to be on the game, but on your plate of yummy food and a delicious cocktail, then check out Catfish. They have two large screens, and they will be showing the Super Bowl, but at this restaurant and bar, the food will be the star! One Yelp reviewer said: Service was casual and laid back just like the atmosphere. Great music, vibes, people and staff! Had the catfish Po’Boy and a sazerac. Both were awesome. Also had a Sidecar – which was delicious. The shrimp n grits were excellent! Lastly the French 75 was a great cocktail.

WHEN: Super Bowl Time

WHERE: 1433 Bedford Avenue



Simplicity Wine Bar: They’re mixing up the menu for the night, stocking up on beer and making things just right for the night. I even have a prediction…While horses are bigger than birds, I think that the bird team can beat the horse team since birds have a better point of view. (I am full of crap though). Please join us at Simplicity for a fun day of sitting back for a good ol’ football game on Sunday, February 2, 2014. Wear your favorite team jersey! Come decked out with football body paint. There will even be a Spades Card Tournament hosted by DJ Jahmedicine.

WHEN: Starting at 4:00pm

WHERE: Simplicity Wine Bar, 310 Malcolm X Blvd
