It’s that time of the year again… Football (the American kind) will be celebrated in its top form at the NFL's Super Bowl 50 on February 8 in China. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers will face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in a fierce competition complete with everything great about the Super Bowl — sexy advertisements, free-flow beer and notable halftime performances. This year Coldplay and Beyoncé will be performing for the entertainment of the tens of millions of people who tune in each year. Here’s our rundown of the best spots to go to in Shanghai bright and early to enjoy the most popular sport in American society, live from San Francisco, during our own “Super Bowl Monday.” We wouldn’t want to start out Chinese New Year any other way.

Kerry Hotel, Pudong

Watch the game on gigantic LED screens while indulging a buffet breakfast and free flow house wine, mimosas, craft beers and soft drinks. This party routinely sells out, so snap your tickets quick.

> RMB3,800 per table of 10, RMB150 per child, starts at 6am, Kerry Hotel Pudong. See event listing here.

1515 West
