Busters garage

another good spot is Alhambra Cleos bar
another good spot is Champions at the Marriott Ocean Club

but BUSTERS is my 1st choice.

or u could host a super bowl party at the divi golf in your unit and really have a fun event!

We watched the world cup at Moomba Beach in July and it is a great place to watch. I know Busters and Champions have better tv's, but at Moomba you can go into the water during timeouts and halftime :cool: and you don't feel like you have given up a beach day to be inside...although the Super is basically at night. They are all a lot more fun than watching in NJ in cold February.

The Hyatt puts a tv in the ocean then sells tables and chairs to watch the game. I think it includes food/drinks etc. which makes it rather expensive but looks like it might be fun.

Arawak Gardens where Salt & Pepper, Tango, Sopranos, etc. had a big TV set up last year for Super Bowl. Busters Garage at South Beach Centre is on Palm Beach Rd.

Busters is a big bar with just a couple of tables. I would say they wouldn't take reservations. If you want to try to get a bar seat, get there real early. There is a lot of standing room at Busters. I never saw a TV inside the restaurant at Moomba's. I would assume that the TV is outside as it is at the Hyatt. At the restaurants at Arawak Gardens if the TV is outside (which I think they advertised last year that is where the TV was), I would think they would want people to order dinner and leave when finished. Salt & Pepper has a bar inside the restaurant. They probably wouldn't rush you to leave. Any place you go will have the game on.

If I recall correctly the Hyatt had staff taking reservations at a hut on the beach.

I will be in aruba for the superbowl. I was wondering if the TV's will carry the game or will i have to go somewhere to watch it? any suggestions where to watch it at. We are staying at the marriott surf club.

Andrea J.
12-04-2010, 05:38 PM
super bowl is shown practically everywhere.
it will be on your tv options on your tv at the surf club.
practically every bar will have the superbowl on.
many folks will be going to BUSTERS to watch it on may of the large tvs.

This is the first year in many that I won't be there for the Super bowl.....going a little earlier this year........but I have found that Matthew's at CDM is a great place to watch!
Last year they offered their all you can eat ribs on Super bowl Sunday and had 3 big screen TV's set up. We were able to stay for the whole game. I thought it was so cool to
be able to watch the Super Bowl while sitting by the beach listening to the waves come in and enjoying an AWESOME meal...........not something we can do here in the winter!!

We called Hyatt today and they will have more details two weeks prior to the Super Bowl. I will try to remember to post up here when we get the info. Last year I heard is was like $60.00 per person, but I believe it included food and drinks. We went to Moombas last year, but it was really really loud!!!! You can't even have a conversation it was so loud.

sunworshipperII
01-12-2011, 08:23 PM
Yeah I emailed them too, they told me as soon as they had the info they would email me...hopefully before we leave.... if not I will just have to go there AS soon as we arrive... Yeh I don't want lound like Moomba

I emailed them on 12/28 to reserve a table. Rusty did respond to me, but was back in the states at the time. He said that he would respond to me in a few days once he was back in Aruba, he never did. I sent two more emails (Jan 13th and 17th) and haven't heard back. I didn't know that Rusty was a Jets fan. I guess I made the mistake in my emails by saying "Go Pats" maybe this is why he hasn't responded after TWO emails...I guess our party of 7 will go elsewhere.

The past few weeks we had to deal with some internal stuff and shorthanded with staff a few days so sorry about the delays. Being in Aruba during superbowl is a great time and alot of places have different type of parties to cater to everyone. Our policy for this day is no cover, options to buy ticket for buffet, order from menu, and outside tailgate BBQ. We have limited superbowl Balashi shirts that will come free with a bucket of beer. If you reserve a table please be here 1/2 hour before kick-off . seating inside and outside on deck. 1st e-mail bustersaruba@aol.com if problem e-mail me at markstone68@aol.com
My team is out so I hope it goes down to the last play.

No problem Mark.......I'm sure we'll figure something out that night..........It sounds like many places are offering the same kind of "deal", so I guess it would make sense to go the same route!!! GO STACKARDS! PEELERS! Haven't picked a team yet to root for......so, it's a toss up!:)

Not a lot of flyers up advertising the big game. Without the Eagles, Patriots or a NJ/NY team there really is not a big buzz. I will stop by and see you next week at Busters Mark, I also plan on stopping by Cafe Capri. I passed it on way from airport looks like a cool place. On the back page of Aruba today was a full page add about a Carnival flip flop beach party w free entrance two bands Tsunami and Dushi band to introduce the new Balashi Chill . It is Feb 13th at Village Square 4-pm -12-am

01-26-2011, 06:27 PM
Cosmo, yes it will be good to see you we are having a pre super bowl party Friday before superbowl with one of the best rock/dance bands on the island JOYRIDE anyone from forum stop by and see me and drink on me. Claus the brewmaster from balashi and from same area of germany as my family stopped by Capri and Busters. Claus is a very nice guy and if anyone ever does the balashi tour ask if you could speak with him. His knowledge and experience in the brewing business is very impressive. Anyway he told me the new chill is going to be a lighter beer and similar in tatse to amstel Bright. Instead of going to private party introducing the beer tonight I'm shoveling snow.

Cosmo
01-27-2011, 06:13 AM
hopefully you can shovel out and get back to the Island where it is 76 degrees at 6:00 am. The new Balashi Chill sounds like a really great beer

We watched a little of the game at the USAirways Club in Philly, and the pilot told us the final score as we landed at our home airport last night...:( <--- That's not for the final score; that's for being home again. I would have loved to have still been in Aruba to watch the game. My husband and I went by Buster's one evening, and it's a great looking bar in a fantastic location.

We watched the Super Bowl at Busters. $55p/p which included a free bucket of beer (5), a t-shirt, and all you can eat buffet. Meatballs, sausage, pasta, chicken wings, build your own nachos, sub sandwich, salad, and a few veggies (might be forgeting something). All in all it was a great time! Not a bad seat in the house with all the tvs there. Was even able to hear the commercials! IMO Busters is the best place to watch any sporting event!

I'm really glad I read your post, sunworshipper. I can't believe I finally know why that screen was set up in the water. We stayed at the Hyatt this trip, and we saw them setting up the screen and wondered what it was for.
