Super Bowl Sunday: Where to watch the Chiefs-Eagles football action in the Coachella Valley
Bars, restaurants and casinos from Desert Hot Springs to Coachella will be showing the Eagles-Chiefs game
Palm Springs Desert Sun
Ready for football’s biggest day of the year? Whether you’re a sports fanatic or you can’t wait for Rihanna’s first public performance since the 2018 Grammys, we know what you’ll be watching Sunday.
But the question is, where will you be watching?
If you’re like me and don’t have cable, here’s a list of spots, from casinos to restaurants, in the Coachella Valley where you can watch the Super Bowl LVII game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
The Beer Hunter in Rancho Mirage and La Quinta
Looking for a classic mid-valley grill to hang out at this Super Bowl Sunday? Check out The Beer Hunter, which will open its doors at 2 p.m. for those who have purchased a $50 reserved seat (which will be credited back toward your purchases).

Cowboy Cantina in Palm Desert
This new Southwest-themed bar and restaurant is pulling out all the stops for Super Bowl Sunday. Cowboy Cantina will host game day “swag” giveaways — including t-shirts, hats and a big-screen T.V. — alongside drink specials and a live DJ. The space, which normally doesn’t have T.V.s, will feature several large sets and projectors that co-owner Jim Valdez said he had “trucked in” specifically for the occasion. Cover for the event is $25, which includes entry in the giveaways, or $50 for a package that includes a cocktail and appetizer. Spots are first-come, first served.
