Dave & Buster’s: With a newly renovated sports bar, Dave & Buster’s is no longer just a grown-up arcade – it’s a sports destination. The bar has numerous TVs, as well as a projector, and a new sprawling layout, so you’ll have room to enjoy the game. 22 oz. drafts start at $3.50 – and don’t forget about the game room.

Wicked Good Bar and Grill: This expansive sports bar with 35 TVs is located in Twin River Casino.

Snookers: There’s a reason Snookers has been a sports bar staple in this town since 1989. It has over 40 flat screen TVs, 15 pool tables, $5 sangrias, $2.50 Coors Lights, unique menu items such as spicy fried pickles and cheesy beer dip, and a striking décor of film memorabilia and industrial treasures.

Ladder 133: This renovated Douglas Avenue Fire Station is a sports bar with a sense of history. Ladder 133 is best known for their comfort food, like beef satays and pulled pork nachos – just what you want on game day. For XLVII, Ladder 133 will be promoting various food and drink specials and there will be a DJ if you’d rather dance than cheer. For reservations, call 272-7427. 133 Douglas Avenue, Providence.
Spats: Located right off of Thayer Street, this college favorite is the always popular at game time. It’s got a nice balance of mellow seclusion with a hint of roughhouse (I’m one to appreciate a fair deal of balance). Spats has numerous flat-screens, a projector, and draft specials, so you’ll enjoy the game even if it’s a blowout. For reservations, call 437-8300. 182 Angell Street, Providence.
The Bradford: For a more intimate game day setting, The Bradford has you covered. Located on Federal Hill, their annual Super Bowl Bash will feature music, a celebrity bartender, giveaways and, of course, food. I suggest the meatballs and shoestrings and the arancini for an alternative to your usual football fare. For reservations, call 432-7422. 42 Atwells Ave, Providence.
Pj’s Pub Cranston: It may look small from the outside, but when you walk through the doors you’ll find a big party. There’s a reason this is a neighborhood favorite in Cranston: PJ’s always knows how to make everyone feel at home. During the game they’ll be featuring $2 domestic drafts and a buffet at halftime. 383-5885, 1139 Pontiac Ave, Cranston.
Ri Ra Irish Pub: A Super Bowl guide would not be complete without an Irish pub. Ri Ra has a load of food and drink specials during the big game: $3 Bud light, Amstel, Heineken, and Guinness pints, $5 cocktails, and half-priced appetizers. For every Guinness you purchase, you receive a raffle ticket, where prizes (plural!) are drawn after each quarter. Ri Ra is also equipped with a 120” HD Projector. For reservations, call 272-1953. 50 Exchange Terrace, Providence.
