Planning a Super Bowl Party in Milwaukee

Although our beloved Packers did not make it to this year’s Super Bowl, it is still time to join the rest of the U.S. in gathering with friends and family and watching the game. But with a party comes the stress of planning the gathering, so we have made this year’s planning easy and compiled a list of places to cater, to host or where to find the best Super Bowl party décor and favors in Milwaukee, so you can kick back and enjoy the game too. 

Cater with the SportClub 

With a sports-inspired menu, and a promise to bring your food in time for kick-off, SportClub in Downtown Milwaukee should be everyone’s go-to for grub at your Super Bowl gathering. The sports bar knows the kind of food sports enthusiasts need to stay fueled and offers a catering menu with a multitude of options to fulfill your cravings, from tacos and pizza to pasta and wings. Some items are gluten-free and vegan-friendly, like the cauliflower bites that have been fried and battered with scallions and served with a side of house-made ranch, for your guests with dietary restrictions. A food purchase minimum of $100 is required, and the delivery fee starts at $30.
