Super Bowl Spots

Any dive with a cable box and a framed Bill Gallo drawing can call itself a sports bar, but for the Super Bowl, nothing short of a headache-inducing surfeit of video screens makes the cut. Since SRO is the norm for big games, call to reserve a table.

1. Park Avenue Country Club
For its array of huge screens and sound system alone, Park Avenue Country Club gets the nod. You won't have to apologize for the cuisine -- caor for shouting "Whoo!" and high-fiving a total stranger. (381 Park Avenue South, at 27th Street, 212-685-3636.)

2. ESPN Zone
It's okay if you step away from your comfy leather Barcalounger in the screening room: The seats in the restrooms (and even the urinals) have their own monitors, to ensure that you won't miss a down. (1472 Broadway, at 42nd Street; 212-921-3776.)

3. The Sporting Club
Claiming to be New York's original sports bar, the nineteen-year-old TriBeCa institution was the first in the city to incorporate multiple satellite hookups and large-screen projection TVs and remains one of the best places to catch a game. (99 Hudson Street; 212-219-0900.)

4. Time Out
This dark, no-frills spot is overwhelmingly popular because it gives fans exactly what they want: cheap beer, tasty bar food, and the highest proportion of TVs per patron of anyplace on our list. (349 Amsterdam Avenue, near 76th Street, 362-5400.)

5. Ship of Fools
The fans at Ship of Fools, a roomy but intimate bar on the Upper East Side, are passionate about football, so expect an outstandingly opinionated (if very friendly) crowd. (1590 Second Avenue, near 82nd Street, 570-2651.)
