If like me, you constantly find yourself looking for a dodgy stream of a 6pm Washington Redskins game whilst nursing a god awful hangover, then stop.

These Manchester bars offer all things NFL on a Sunday which means you no longer have to miss any of the action because your feed isn’t good enough!

Dog Bowl
Dog Bowl is famous for its Super Bowl parties so of course it should be your go-to for weekly NFL screenings. Plus, there’s always an abundance of American snacks and great drink offers to sweeten the deal. There’s a ton of HD screens knocking about, as well as a bowling alley to keep you and your mates entertained during the thousand time-outs and breaks between play. Head down on Sunday 2nd of Feb for the Super Bowl!

Dog Bowl, Whitworth St W, Manchester M1 5WW

Bunny Jackson’s
What do Americans love more than ‘football’? Fried stuff of course! Bunny Jackson’s is the place then, with their exquisite 10p wings and acres of hot dogs flying around, this place would make any American proud. Add on a massive menu of great cocktails, more frosty beers than you can shake a leg at and you’re in US Sports Fan heaven.

Dive NQ
Venture down into Dive on any day and it’s likely that they’ll be showing some form of sports, whether it’s Midget Tossing on Euro Sport 4 or the NFL on a Sunday. They also have a brilliant happy hour every single day that lasts a massive 5 hours too. A frosty pint of Coors will set you back a cool £3.50. The American Football is just a cherry on top really.

Okay, so heading into the deepest, darkest bowels of the Printworks is a little bit more on the commercial side, but with a giant screen and a load of drink deals to match you’re still going to be in for a pretty decent NFL Sunday down in Shooters. You can also fill your face with plenty of fried American goodies too, which will only enhance the experience.

Shooters Bar, 12, The Printworks, 27 Withy Grove, Manchester M4 2BS

Second City
Ancoats’ answer to a sports bar is Second City. It’s got Sky Sports, BT Sport and FIFA on a PS4 so basically, every form of sports there is. There’s plenty of American themed cocktails including, ’21 Float’ made from JD, root beer, vanilla ice cream and cherry.

Second City, 37 Blossom St, Manchester M4 6AJ


The Courtyard
I swear by Courtyard for any sporting event because they offer a massive pitcher of lager for only £9 and wherever you look you’ll always have a screen in your eye line. It’s actually always a good laugh in Courtyard, they don’t take themselves too seriously and there’s always a great atmosphere.

The Brotherhood Of Pursuits & Pastimes
Brotherhood aims itself as a bit more of an upmarket sports experience, and so it’s a great place to book a booth with your mates, tuck into some beers and scoff some platters while watching the NFL. IN fact, they’ve got loads of proper nice food on offer, so for the real NFL Sunday experience – get tucking in, sitting in your booth with your own TV and the rest will be history!
