Attention NFL fans — or just anyone who's down for a US-themed party — mark your calendar for Super Bowl Sunday Monday, because The Wharf Hotel is about to throw a hell of a party.

While the US gets to experience the big game prime time Sunday night, Melburnians are going to need to convince their bosses for a late start on Monday, February 12, or chuck a sickie to get in on the fun, as the game is set to kick off at 10:30am on this side of the planet.

For those free and willing, The Wharf Hotel has collaborated with Pepsi to create Melbourne's first-ever Super Bowl LVIII Dome Experience, an event that claims to transform how you watch live sport.

Set to float on the Yarra River, the Pepsi Dome Experience will offer a 360-degree viewing perspective. Picture yourself immersed in the game, lounging on beanbags, while enjoying a siren-to-siren package of unlimited drinks (selected bottled beer, wines, and Pepsi) and a lineup of American-themed snacks.

Dome tickets aren't cheap ($190), and they're very limited, but if you're looking for a unique way to experience the game, this package might be for you — just get in quick.

If you're on a tighter budget, the tailgate party is your go-to. This complimentary event unfolds on The Wharf's outdoor lower level, featuring a mega screen for live game coverage, with a nice background of the Melbourne skyline. Entry is free, but RSVPs are essential through the venue's website.

For those seeking a more conventional viewing experience, general reservations are available, with tables inside, on the garden deck or the covered promenade. No matter where you sit, you'll be able to see the game, thanks to multiple screens throughout the venue.

Doors open from 8am, while the Dome will open from 10am.
