Whether you’re one of the estimated 79,000 fans who’ll watch the Super Bowl in person, or plan to catch it on TV, you’ll need a game plan.

Top 3 Watch-Party Spots

Any Valley sports bar worth its salt will have the game on. Here are some less-obvious viewing solutions.

The Yard: With generous indoor-outdoor spacing and plenty of lawn games and activities – not to mention upscale pub-grub from anchor eatery Culinary Dropout – this North-Central entertainment compound is our favorite family-friendly locale for the Super Bowl.

Diego Pops/Montauk crawl: If you want to see the game in scene-y, high-energy Old Town, these sister Scottsdale restaurants make for an intriguing one-two punch. Eight years ago, they hosted a viewing party for Super Bowl XLIX. Check websites for details.,

Talking Stick Resort: The do-everything Scottsdale-adjacent hospitality playground – gaming! concerts! sports massages on the 14th floor! – also hosts annual “big game” parties in its Salt River Grand Ballroom, with raffles, prizes and other gewgaws. Expect an even bigger party this year.
