Where to Watch the Big Game in Palm Springs

Are you ready for the big game this Sunday? It’s time to finalize your party plans, pull out your crockpot, and set up your sound system. But if you’d rather avoid the post-party cleanup and let someone else do the cooking, you’re in luck. Whether you’re a local or you’re just visiting Palm Springs, there are tons of fun bars and restaurants that will be showing the big game — so you can sit back, relax, and cheer on your team in style.

Here are some of the best places to watch the big game in Palm Springs:


You don’t need to be in Las Vegas to hit the buffet! Lulu California Bistro is already well-known in Palm Springs for their Sunday brunch, and they’re taking it up a notch this Sunday for the NFL’s 51st championship showdown. Stop by for a Super Sunday Buffet from 1-6 p.m. to watch the game on 120-inch screens while feasting on chicken wings, pizzas, hamburgers, hot dogs, and much more — all for $24.99. Reserve your table soon, as last year’s event sold out!

Whether you’re staying at the Hard Rock or not, our Bar and Lounge is one of the best spaces to see and be seen. It’s right in the middle of all the action in the hotel lobby, with comfortable seating, trendy decor, and professional mixologists to keep you quenched while you watch the game. Not into cocktails? Sip from the bar’s large selection of bottled beers or fill your glasses with top-notch wines of both foreign and domestic origin. Fans will enjoy all-day Happy Hour pricing and beer specials. And if you’re the only one in your party not into football, simply sneak away to the Rock Spa to unwind and meet up afterward!

If you’re an early riser looking to claim the best spot at the bar for the game, head to The Hair of the Dog. Why’s that? This English pub right on N. Palm Canyon Drive opens bright and early at 7 a.m. If you’re looking for a friendly, low-key place to post up for the day, this is one of the best bars in Palm Springs to watch the big game.

The Moxie Palm Springs opened just a couple of weeks ago, but it’s already becoming a hot spot in downtown Palm Springs. Located above the Broken Yolk Cafe, this bar offers amazing views of the San Jacinto Mountains and prime people-watching on Palm Canyon Drive. Plus, the Moxie will be showing the big game on TVs both indoors and on their outdoor patio. Happy hour deals (both food and drinks) can be had until 7 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m.

Staying outside of Palm Springs? The Beer Hunter in La Quinta is one of the best greater Palm Springs sports bars, located about 35 minutes from downtown. They’ll be hosting the ultimate NFL party, with all-day drink specials, breakfast starting at 8 a.m., and raffle prizes to benefit the Desert Blaze Youth Hockey team. Pure Sports host Geoff Bloom will be on site for live radio cut-ins during commercial breaks, and with 50 TVs throughout the bar, there’s not a bad seat in the house!
