With less than a week to go until the greater New York City area hosts its first Super Bowl (it will technically be across the river in New Jersey), hotels and bars around the city are offering some fun deals and perks to get in on football fever. Here are just a few:
Watching the Game
The Gansevoort Park Avenue is offering specials at its Rooftop bar on Super Bowl Sunday: Beginning at 3:00pm, the bar will have specials on drinks and snacks. For those who'd rather stay close to the ground, a total of 16 screens will have the game at Asellina and at The Windsor sports bar.
Downtown, the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC will screen the game at the renovated rooftop Loft. Guests can unwind with some signature cocktails including the the Mango Lime Rickey. On the ground floor, the hotel’s new restaurant, The Chester, will screen the game across eight TVs.
Going to the Game
The Sofitel New York (pictured) is going one step further, offering groups a package that includes tickets to the game and three nights in a Luxury Suite at the hotel. The Sofitel Ultimate Super Bowl Experience includes:
· 20 tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII in Section 300 of MetLife Stadium
· Group transportation to and from the game
· 10 Luxury Suites (double occupancy) for three nights, arriving Friday, Jan. 31 and departing Monday, Feb. 3, with late checkout
· Breakfast for 20 daily at Gaby Brasserie Française
· Group transportation to and from the airport
The Out NYC is also offering a package that includes a trip out to the stadium. Fans can get a deluxe king room with complimentary breakfast for two, round-trip transportation to the game in Rutherford with a cooler full of beer and snacks (great for tailgating) and a complimentary cocktail at KTCHN.
After the Game
Alas, Monday morning must come, and one team will go home without the coveted trophy. At the Roosevelt Hotel, the Vander Bar is offering a "Mourning After" special (get it?) for fans of the losing team, with specials offering percentage discounts in the amount of losing points (for example, a 15-point spread means a 15 percent discount). The discounts are offered for fans dressed in the losing team’s attire at Vander Bar on Monday, Feb. 3 during open hours, 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Good to know: The game will not be repeated on the bar's TVs, and themed cocktails will be available for drowning sorrows.
