The Best Place to Watch Football Playoffs? Poolside in Santa Rosa

The Sunday Funday event will feature an all-day happy hour menu, live-streamed games and a hot tub for halftime hangouts.

The 49ers and Raiders won’t be continuing on past the regular season, but you can still find joy in football. Whether you’re cheering your fantasy team to a championship, watching the playoff race unfold, or catching all of the postseason action, you can do it all poolside at Santa Rosa’s Sandman Hotel.

The Sandman, which recently underwent a full refresh, has launched a Sunday Funday all-day Happy Hour menu at its tricked-out Pool House & Bar. Open to the public (not just hotel guests), The Sandman will stream live games from 10am-3pm every Sunday, while serving up drinks and snacks at a serious steal. We’re talking $6 Bloody Marys and spiked smoothies, $18 for a bucket of six beers, $8 wings, $4 Southwest Avocado Toast, and more. View the full menu here.

Winter might not be the best time for the pool—though it will be open, in case you have the urge to push your buddy in after a tough loss—but we highly suggest a hot tub sesh at halftime. If it’s raining, the cozy-chic pool house will keep you dry and the drinks flowing.
