Bars in West Hollywood’s Rainbow District hosted various Super Bowl LVIII viewing parties along Santa Monica Boulevard, aiming to draw large crowds for Super Bowl Sunday as the San Francisco 49ers faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas.
Some bars went all out with balloon sculptures, giant screens, drink specials, and additional entertainment, while others opted for a more straightforward approach, focusing solely on airing the game.
Micky’s WeHo set up a giant screen on their patio for the game, accompanied by go-go dancers and offerings of popcorn and hot dogs. The effort paid off with a large turnout throughout the night.
Trunks offered complimentary pizza, while Heart WeHo boasted numerous screens but experienced a low turnout. Gym Bar’s sports-themed decor and high flat screens provided an optimal viewing experience for patrons, with chicken hot wings being a popular menu item. Hi Tops WeHo drew a large turnout despite solely showing the game, and Mother Lode had a decent crowd. Stache provided a laid-back atmosphere, with most patrons seated at tables to watch the game.
This is Superbowl Sunday in the cCty of West Hollywood CA. Some bars went all out… others did not. Micky’s WeHo and Hi Tops were the busiest. #wehonews #wehocity #wehotimes #weho #superbowl #superbowlsunday #superbowl2024 #wehonightlife #westhollywood #westhollywoodnightlife #losangeles #california
The game went into overtime, with the Kansas City Chiefs ultimately making history by overcoming a 10-point deficit to secure their second consecutive Super Bowl championship, prevailing over the San Francisco 49ers with a final score of 25-22.
Both teams were tied at 19 points apiece at the conclusion of regular play. During overtime, Jake Moody of the 49ers kicked a 27-yard field goal, briefly putting San Francisco ahead 22-19. However, Kansas City’s star quarterback Patrick Mahomes orchestrated a game-winning one-yard touchdown pass to receiver Mecole Hardman with just 13 seconds remaining in the overtime period.
Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, celebrating the historic victory alongside his girlfriend, pop superstar Taylor Swift, expressed gratitude for the team’s collective effort, stating, “The goal’s always been to get three. But we couldn’t get here without getting the two. And having the target on our back all year.”
