Super Bowl LV Outdoor Watch Parties in Miami 2021
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
This Sunday at 6:30 p.m., the Kansas City Chiefs will battle the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the Buccaneers’ home turf, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
Any other year, Tampa’s relative proximity to Miami could tempt local football fans to hit the road, but a global pandemic coupled with reduced capacity and high ticket prices makes watching Super Bowl LV in Miami your best bet.
Good thing many Miami restaurants offer outdoor experiences with plenty of TV monitors, beer, and food.
Here are the best places to watch Sunday game outdoors.

Batch Gastropub’s 15 TV monitors and three projectors are strategically located so everyone has a great spot, whether outside or at the bar. Matchday specialty drinks include $ 25 buckets of five 16-ounce beers (Bud, Bud Light, Shock Top, or Rolling Rock), $ 5 Bud Light Pints, and $ 5 Barn Burner (Irish whiskey, green apple schnapps, cranberry juice, and orange bitters). Enjoy bar favorites like Buffalo Nachos, Pulled Pork Egg Rolls, and Wings.
Watch the game in the outdoor butcher’s beer garden and enjoy all-day specials including a 24-piece confit wing platter for $ 25, jalapeño poppers for $ 12, laden Bavarian pretzel bites ($ 15), and many specialty beers. Very hungry? Try the “Deluxe Fat Freddy” burger, a 5-pound patty (that’s 5 pounds) topped with American cheese, hickory-smoked brisket, mac-and-cheese fritters, and more on a giant bun . The burger is served with truffle fries and a three-liter tower of draft beer. It’ll cost you $ 200, but it will feed up to ten people – and think about the Instagram options.
