Where to watch the Rose Bowl in Iowa City


A historic football season concludes with one final game. The Iowa Hawkeyes return to the Rose Bowl for the first time in twenty five years to play Stanford on January 1 at 3 p.m. CST. Thousands have made the trip out west to sunny Pasadena to cheer on the Hawkeyes. For all those sticking around in Iowa City here are a few places we noticed going above and beyond to offer you a unique Rose Bowl viewing experience.

Rose Bowl Tailgate

Summit (10 S Clinton St.) — 1 p.m.

Inexpensive drinks and giant TVs on the wall play well with the college crowd at the Summit, one of Iowa City’s most popular college bars. These type of events at the Summit tend to fill up quickly, so make plans to arrive early and mark your table.

Rose Bowl Pride Beer Dust

Studio 13 (13 S Linn St.) — 2 p.m.

If a dozen HD TVs (including one 8 foot HD TV in the main room) isn’t enough, a $10+ donation gets you penny beers with the proceeds going to Pride.

Martinis’ Hawkeyes Rose Bowl Party

Martinis’ (127 E College St.) — 3 p.m.

Celebrate at Martinis with $2 touchdown shots, $3 well drinks and $5 domestic pitchers.

Deadwood Watch Party

The Deadwood (6 S Dubuque St.) — 10 a.m.

The Deadwood may be the best place to watch Hawkeye football as far as best-kept-secrets go. Filled with hometown fans and college students alike, this bar offers a truly unique fan experience. And starting at 3:30 p.m. they’ll be serving up house-made chili to accompany those PBRs.

Joe’s Place Watch Party

Joe’s Place (115 Iowa Ave.) — 12 p.m.

With over 20 TVs, Joe’s Place provides abundant seating and ample viewing. BYOF (or fill up on free popcorn), get comfortable and belly up to cheer on the Hawks.
