Las Vegas Welcomes Football Fever
VEGAS.com travel experts recommend the best places to view this season's hottest games
Football fever has hit Sin City and it's time to find the best seats at the hottest sports books in the sports betting capital of the world. With so many choices, the travel experts at VEGAS.com have stepped in to help the discerning viewer with a list of the top game viewing and betting hot spots throughout the city. They are:
Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo
Combining everything guests love in a bar and sports book, Lagasse's Stadium offers tasty cuisine from Celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse. The bar hosts up to 1,300 people and features 100 high-definition TV screens along with a 9-foot by 16-foot giant flat screen that gives fans a view no matter where they sit.
Caesars Palace Race and Sports Book at Caesars Palace
Voted "Best Sports Book" in Las Vegas four years straight by a local Las Vegas newspaper, this sports book has a VIP-style area, separated by ropes that feature 22 tables with personal monitors so guests can keep tabs on the game closest to their heart — and wallet.
Hilton Theater at Las Vegas Hilton
The Hilton Theater, a smoke-free venue, goes beyond just showing all the games. Budweiser, ESPN radio and American Memorabilia, which also sells football memorabilia outside of the theater, will all be on hand every Sunday to give away NFL merchandise, drinks and a number of other items.
MGM Grand Race and Sports Book at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
Aside from offering 5,300 square feet of bettor's heaven, there are also skyboxes to give you the feel of a luxury box at your favorite NFL stadium. Each skybox ranges from 300-325 square feet, fits up to 10 guests and features plasma TVs, CD systems and surround sound.
Bettors can try their luck at earning a share of more than $150,000 in cash prizes. The free contest runs through the end of the regular season and is open to everyone who signs up for the iMagine Rewards program. Members earn a free weekly entry and up to 10 additional entries daily based on slot points or rated table play.
The Pub is a great place for watching the games and enjoying food and drink specials. Pints start off at $3.95 and buckets start at $19.95. If you're planning a Sunday marathon of football consumption, The Pub features a VIP package with sofa seating; for $150 per person, it includes all-you-can-drink wells, drafts and house wine along with appetizers, flatbreads and burgers.
Rockhouse Bar and Nightclub at Imperial Palace
Guests are encouraged to swing by the Rockhouse Bar and Nightclub which features 28 high-definition TVs showing the action. Patrons receive two-for-one Bud Light bottles during the games. At 10 p.m., Rockhouse transforms into a nightclub, giving guests a place to celebrate their team's win or try to forget their loss while watching the attractive staff swing on tires over the bar.
Rock & Rita's at Circus Circus
As the newest bar on property, Rock & Rita's is practically giving away wings during college and professional games. Food specials include 25-cent wings and $6.99 brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This place is the perfect compromise for football fans who can bring their kids along and have their spouses take them to Adventuredome for a 'Vegas is for kids too' experience.
McFadden's Restaurant and Saloon at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
Guests can try their luck of the Irish at McFadden's. Guests who purchase a bucket of Budweiser during Sunday games or a bucket of Coors Light during Monday night games are entered into a drawing for two tickets to the Big Game on Super Sunday in February. Additionally, McFadden's will give away NFL regular-season tickets, merchandise and beer on game days.
