Here’s Where to Watch the Patriots Super Bowl Victory Parade

The championship celebration returns to Boston on Tuesday, Feb. 5, with "six ring" specials, patio parties, and more parade-route fun.

We can’t all hang out at Disney World with the certified G.O.A.T. Tom Brady and Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman, but we can share in the revelry with the six-time champion Patriots here in Boston on Tuesday. Mayor Marty Walsh and the city has this year’s Victory Parade all mapped out, starting at 11 a.m. at Hynes Convention Center, and traveling along Boylston, Tremont, and Cambridge streets before wrapping up at Government Center.

Scope out a spot to watch and cheer at one of these parade-route bars or restaurants, which are doing their job with victory parade specials, early-season patio parties, and more excuses to take the day off from work on Tuesday to celebrate another Super Bowl championship.

Abe & Louie’s

Victory parade views don’t get much better than from this Boylston Street patio—and this year’s mild forecast looks ideal for being al fresco in February. The classic steakhouse is opening early at 10 a.m., and is dishing out specials all day like the Super Bowl filet slider and more.

After the parade finishes up at Government Center, head to this Valenti Square venue to replenish with the Six Ring Burger. Appropriately priced at $12 in honor of the indisputable greatest quarterback of all time, the sandwich loads an all-natural beef patty, sharp cheddar, and six beer-battered onion rings atop an everything-spiced brioche bun. City Winery is also shaking up a $12 cocktail special called One More Ring, and is donating $2 per drink sold to Best Buddies, a charity supported by Tom Brady.

None of chef Andy Husbands’ barbecue joints are situated on the parade route, but all three locations are celebrating the latest Super Bowl victory with free pulled pork. The first 200 fans to visit the Kendall Square, Seaport, or Assembly Row restaurants on Tuesday get a free sandwich, thanks to a promotion with Prairie Fresh meats. Each location opens at 11 a.m., and the parade livestream will be on all the TVs.
