Where to Watch the Super Bowl in SF

Jeff Howard February 1, 2019

The 53rd annual Super Bowl is set to be an exciting match-up between the Rams and Patriots, but where should you watch the super bowl in SF? San Mateo native Tom Brady will be competing in his 9th Super Bowl and the Bay Area will have plenty of fans rooting on the Patriots. However, the Marin native and UC Berkeley graduate Jared Goff will be behind center for Los Angeles. The Bay Area is certain to be filled with tension on Super Bowl Sunday. However, the real dilemma is determining which fine San Francisco establishment to enjoy the game. We at Trinity SF have compiled a list of the best places for football fans to watch the Super Bowl in San Francisco.

Boston Bars

Horseshoe Tavern

#SFLegacyFBF: Affectionately known as just “The Shoe,” Horseshoe Tavern was established in the Marina District on Fillmore and Chestnut in 1934. The original owner was a storied character, serving as a US Marine and a football player for an early team that would go on to become the San Francisco 49ers. Ramos set up shop in ’34, and gathered a popular following and a devoted local crowd. Over the next several decades, Horseshoe Tavern also went by the names The Wrinkle Room or God’s Waiting Room, but always maintained its faithful regulars. Three such regulars, Robert Walker, Brenda Turner, and Stefan Wever, had known Ramos for years and had made him many offers to purchase the bar, which he always turned down. Finally after thirty-eight years serving as the bar’s owner and proprietor, Vic Ramos sold to the three enterprising patrons. The new owners rechristened the bar Horseshoe Tavern, and added pool tables and a new jukebox to update the bar, though Horseshoe remains much as it was since its inception. Amidst a crowd of upscale bars and upscale people in the Marina District, Horseshoe Tavern persists as a classic San Francisco institution. . . . #sfheritage #sflegacybar #sftavern #sfdives #thehorseshoesf
