February 3rd is Super Bowl Sunday and if you’re going to be in Atlanta, you’ll want to make the most of all the festivities! Make sure you’ve got a place to party on the day of the big game. Whether you want to rub elbows with NFL stars, check out awesome live music, eat gourmet food, or just have access to an open bar for those critical hours leading up to kickoff, here are the best Super Bowl 53 Pregame Parties in Atlanta to help you maximize your weekend’s fun!
The Maxim Pregame Experience Presented by TickPick
Maxim is possibly the biggest name in Super Bowl parties, and this year they’re hosting a pregame party of epic proportions! From noon to 5PM on game day, swap your usual tailgate for DJ entertainment, celebrity appearances, top-shelf open bars, and premium buffets. There will even be a DJ on the roof! Most exciting of all, DJ Snoopadelic, aka Snoop Dogg, is headlining the party and NFL superstar and sports analyst Deion Sanders is hosting! In the past, Maxim Experiences have attracted celebs like Lil’ Wayne, Ludacris, Kate Upton, Post Malone, Terrell Owens, Justin Bieber, Iggy Azalea, and many more.
Presented by TickPick, the Maxim Pregame Party is one downtown affair you don’t need a Super Bowl ticket to attend. It’s happening at one of the biggest and best sports bars in Atlanta – STATS, a complex made up of STATS Brewpub, Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria, and Twin Smokers BBQ – meaning there will be over 30,000 square feet of space to party. The buffets will feature food from each of the restaurants, including barbecue, prime rib, burgers, fried chicken, pizza, pasta, and Southern cuisine.
Guests can also participate in a silent auction featuring fantastic sports memorabilia with proceeds going to benefit Warrior Rising and 22Kill, both nonprofits that support veterans. If you do have a ticket to the big game, you’ll only be four blocks away from Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Get your tickets here.
Ric Flair’s Blitz Tailgate
Taking place at the Atlanta Hard Rock Cafe, this premium tailgate party will be hosted by none other than wrestling legend Ric Flair. There will be live entertainment, appearances by NFL stars, and the chance to take photos and snag autographs from celebs. To fill you up before the big game, you’ll get four hours of a gourmet buffet with all-you-can-eat food, top-shelf liquor, beer, and wine.
The venue is walkable to Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the party will be happening between 1 and 5PM before the Super Bowl kicks off at 6:30 PM. Kids are welcome (though they won’t be served booze, obviously). Get tickets here. If you don’t have Super Bowl tickets, the party will continue with a cash bar and a la carte meals during the game.
The Players Tailgate
An annual affair hosted by celebrity chef Guy Fieri, you don’t need a Super Bowl ticket to attend this huge pregame party presented by the Bullseye Event Group.

In the past, The Players Tailgate has boasted athlete attendees like Dak Prescott, Jalen Ramsey, Josh Norman, and Odell Beckham, Jr. ESPN’s Sage Steele will emcee and entertainment will be provided by DJ Irie.
Along with food by famous chef and caterer Aaron May, Guy Fieri himself helps prepare some of the dishes! There will be several other celeb chefs and James Beard Award winners helping to create a ridiculous spread, like Michael Voltaggio, Jamie Bissonnette, and Thiago Silva.
