Where should you watch the big game this Sunday? Forget about cheap beer and soggy, stale nachos: these supreme Super Bowl XLIX watching spots take your experience to the next level with gourmet fare and delicious drinks.

1 L'Ermitage

The hands-down hautest Super Bowl party of the season in Los Angeles is will be held at L'Ermitage in Beverly Hills this year. Warning though: you will PAY to watch the Seakhawks and the Patriots play. For $35,000, you'll get six rooms for a one-night stay, an ‘arrival ambassador’ who will greet your party at the door and hand out jerseys and hats, your own private area to watch the game, an unlimited bar stocked with Stoli, 'haute’ dogs, and, as the closer, an end-of-night Japanese Binchotan complete with A5 Kobe beef, a personalized raw bar with oyster shooters and a Cristal cart doling out champagne.

2 The Bungalow

Starting at 2 P.M. on Sunday, Brent Bolthouse's low-key escape by the sea will morph into the supreme Super Bowl viewing spot. The big game will be screened on multiple big screen TVs, where watchers can view the ultimate New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks showdown in a great indoor/outdoor venue. Imbibe signature classic sangria, margaritas and specialty cocktails, before you head out to the parking lot for a BBQ and pig roast. If, after all the revelry, you're unable to drive, well, the Fairmont IS attached to The Bungalow, after all.

The haute eatery will feature a large screen with full audio for the game, Choi's signature Korean pub fare including Korean fried chicken wings, fried dumplings, rice cake nachos, and vegetable pancakes as well as $15 pitchers and $9 POT shot and beer specials. You better believe there will be games here, too: corn hole, Jenga and beer pong are all on the table. There's betting, too, for those who can't resist, though all betting games will be done through beverage purchases, and prizes will include food and drink specials.
