The 53rd Super Bowl is this Sunday, Feb. 3, and a number of metro Detroit bars will be screening the playoffs between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams. We’ve gathered the best places to score pitchers of beer, order wings and nachos, and even win a 47-inch flat screen all while watching the big game.

The stylish sports bar at the MGM Grand Casino boasts over 40 HD flat-screen televisions for guests to enjoy the game, along with an impressive lineup of snacks and libations.
