Weekend in NoMad: Superbowl XLIX Edition
With New York having hosted the big game last year, it is hard not having it here again this year. NoMad has stepped up to the plate so we can feel like the game is still in our city.
We’re never short on nightlife here in NoMad, and the upcoming Super Bowl weekend has us spoiled for choices once again. NoMad will be Super Bowl Central this weekend with massive Super Bowl parties. Whether you’re looking for a proper sports bar with stick-to-your-ribs grub or a nice, quiet corner where you can watch the game with a glass of wine, NoMad’s got you covered.
We have some of our favorite spots picked out below, but you can see the full list of all participating places in the NoMad neighborhood on our interactive Super Bowl Map. Just choose the “Super Bowl” filter to see all of your possibilities.
230 Fifth is going all out for its Super Bowl party, with an open bar of wine and beer at its famed rooftop restaurant and bar. You can also munch to your heart’s content on an unlimited buffet of game day classics such as wings, mozzarella sticks and sliders, all for one entry price.
Tickets cost $35 and are available online.
Grey Bar will be offering special Super Bowl-appropriate food in addition to its standard menu. The staff says they aren’t taking reservations for the game, but rumor has it that if you get there an hour or so before kickoff, you might be able to grab a seat. And if not, there will be ample standing room throughout the bar.
Rogue combines the enthusiastic energy of a neighborhood sports bar with a high-quality menu of delicious food and premium beer and cocktails. Starting at 5:00 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday, Rogue will shift gears and will become your go-to spot for affordable drinks.
Coors Lights, Bud Light, and Budweiser bottles are all $4 each, and pitchers of Bud Light are $15. If you want something a bit fancier, the wide range of craft and imported beers will run you $23 per pitcher. And if your team is down and you need something a little stronger, there’s always the option to down a couple of Avion Tequila shots for $5.
Tavern 29 has something for everyone. You can watch the game at the dark-paneled bar on the first floor, hang out in a booth on the wood-paneled second floor, or make friends with the rest of your table in the third floor biergarten. No matter where you are, you’re guaranteed to be having a good time.
In addition to the normal gastropub menu of burgers and sandwiches, Tavern 29 will be offering specials on Sixpoint beer.
Reservations are still available so reserve your table by calling them today at (212) 685-4422.
Turnmill is a proper pub, but the drinks aren’t the only reason to consider it for your Super Bowl celebration — the menu offers great bar food classics like giant pretzels, beer brat, Philly cheesesteak and lots more. For Super Bowl Sunday there will be specials across the beer menu, as well as $5 select drafts. If you’re sticking around, you might want to pick up a Bucket of Beer for just $20. A bucket includes your choice of any 5 cans from the likes of Dales Pale Ale, Shiner Bock, Pork Slap, Sam Adams, Narragansett, Bud and Founders IPA. You can also get any one of the above cans and a shot for a cool $8.
Windsor, the English-style pub inside the Gansevoort Park Hotel (link) will be showing the game on Sunday as well. English pubs and American football generally don’t go hand in hand, but the Windsor is different — it’s a pub with a very American feel. This option could be a great fit for a more low-key viewing experience. So if this sounds like your kind of place, you might want to reserve now as we’re told reservations are filling up. As usual, the Windsor will be offering a standard food and drink menu for the game. We recommend the Half Windsor cocktail and truffle grilled cheese.
You can call to make a reservation at (646) 380-5301.
