On Wednesday we told you where you should watch the Super Bowl if you happen to be a 49ers fan in New York City. Today, we’ve found a couple of great spots to watch the game if you bleed purple! This one’s for the Baltimore Ravens fans looking for fellow die hards to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday with:

Wharf Bar and GrillMidtown East

Head up to 3rd and 39th to find this fantastic sports bar which will be crammed with Baltimore Raven’s fans on Super Bowl Sunday. Just make sure you get there early because every Raven fan in the city will be trying to get in.

This Union Square bar is perfect for watching the Ravens and serves as the host of a weekly meetup for Raven fans. If you forget to wear purple next week, you’ll probably stand out.

Where to watch the Super Bowl in NYC if you’re a 49ers fan

The Super Bowl matchup is finally set and the first Sunday in February will see the San Francisco 49ers face off against the Baltimore Ravens. While this year’s Super Bowl doesn’t feature any New York teams, you’re still probably going to want to watch the big game, so let us help you out. Here is a list of great spots in NYC where you can watch the biggest game in all of sport, if you root for the :

Finnerty’sEast Village

Finnerty’s in the East Village will surely be showing the game. After all, it is NYC’s unofficial 49ers bar. So put on your favorite Smith jersey (I’m partial to Aldon) and meet your friends from San Francisco on 2md Avenue and 13th Street

HiberniaHell’s Kitchen

Hibernia isn’t a Niners bar, but you certainly won’t find any Ravens fans here on Sunday. As the Unofficial Steelers bar of NYC, this crown may be rooting for San Francisco even harder than the group at Finnerty’s.
