40 Love on La Cienega
| Wonho Frank Lee

Southern California has a spot in the Super Bowl this year, thanks to the recently-relocated Los Angeles Rams. Led by a young core including quarterback Jared Goff, coach Sean McVay (he’s only 33, for those asking), and running back Todd Gurley — to say nothing of all-everything defensive tackle Aaron Donald — the team is set to take the sports-watching world by storm this Sunday. They’ll be matched up against the dreaded New England Patriots, the NFL’s perennial favorites, so it should make for a competitive game, and an even better drinking and eating experience. Here now, 16 great sports bars for catching every angle, screaming with the crowd, and downing lots of beer, presented north to south.

16153 Victory Blvd
Van Nuys, CA 91406
(818) 988-9786

Van Nuys sports bar Springbok is a Victory Boulevard staple for beers, burgers, sausages, and the like. Better still is the space, a pseudo-rustic recreation with sports memorabilia on the walls and a rather unique clientele holding down the stools.

Glendale, CA 91203

Visit Website

There may be no bigger single space to watch the game than at Mr. Furley’s Bar in the heart of Glendale. The cavernous room houses countless TVs as well as pool tables and other distractions, but the real heart of the place is the 3600-degree bar ready to pour from a long list of craft beer.

Without reservation, Barney’s Beanery is perhaps one of the premier places to catch a cheap stiff drink and a game. It helps that the place has so much history behind it.

Butcher’s Dog is part British pub, part classic American hangout, and part downright sports bar — all tucked into a space that’s just off one of LA’s most enduring Japanese food strips, naturally. The result is an eclectic menu of food and booze, with plenty of TVs for catching the big game.

15. Ercoles 1101

1101 Manhattan Ave
Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
(310) 372-1997

Ercoles should stay busy during the Super Bowl, given its location in the heart of already busy Manhattan Beach. The place feels mostly like a dive bar, but cheering fans pointing at one of the many televisions inside should turn it into a definite sports bar for the Super Bowl.
