On February 2, 2020, the AFC and NFC Champions will meet in Miami to play at the 2020 Super Bowl. The two teams will play at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida—the home of the Miami Dolphins and the University of Miami Hurricanes. As the host of the Super Bowl, Miami becomes the only city to host the Super Bowl for a record-breaking eleventh time, despite the fact that it’s been a decade since it has last hosted.
Start planning your Super Bowl trip to the Magic City now! There’s a lot to do!
As one of the biggest cities in Florida, restaurant selection in Miami may be overwhelming. Here are some restaurants that have us drooling just thinking about them:

801 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131
For high-end Southeast Asian food and drinks, dine at Komodo – a stylish, three-story indoor and outdoor restaurant and lounge. Just one look at the menu featuring Peking Duck, Tuna & Toro Roll and Lobster Dynamite and you’ll be ready to make a reservation.

It’s wouldn’t be right to travel to Miami and not experience its vibrant nightlife! It will be Super Bowl weekend, so prepare for heightened celebrations with celebrity guests and DJ’s! There are many different clubs, but here are some of our favorites:
29 NE 11th St, Miami, FL 33132
E11EVEN is the nightclub and cabaret that never sleeps. Literally. Open 24 hours/7 days a week/365 days a year, E11EVEN will be there for you at any point during your trip!

If LIV sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve heard it before! This iconic nightclub has been featured in rap songs by musicians such as Drake and Kanye West. Prepare to dance in falling confetti and under laser lights. LIV is the name of the club but also the roman numerals for the 54th Super Bowl, so it must be a sign!
Ball & Chain
1513 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33135
Ball & Chain Saloon opened in 1935, and today is Miami’s best Latin Club featuring live music and Cuban-style food and drinks. The best way to party is at Ball & Chain’s La Pachanga parties on Saturday nights for some of the best live music and DJ sets in Miami.
