Downtown's List of Fan-Neutral Bars with the Best Super Bowl Deals!
Calling all Jets and Giants fans and everyone in between! If you’re not a Patriots or Eagles fan, there’s a good chance your team is either a rival of or has been eliminated by these two teams. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel like watching the super bowl where a bunch of rival fans get to root on their team. So if you’re looking for a good neutral spot to avoid all those obnoxious Pats fans, or a bar where you don’t have to deal with the aggressive Philly fans, look no further, DOWNTOWN is here to the rescue! Here is list of some of our best sports bars that aren’t Pats and Eagles fan zones.
