Super Bowl weekend is a big deal in Las Vegas.
While thousands pack the State Farm Stadium outside Phoenix, Arizona to watch Super Bowl LVII in person, even greater numbers will be in Las Vegas to catch the action on the big screen. Bars, lounges and restaurants will try to outdo each other with “Super Sunday” deals. Some may charge an admission fee that usually coincides with a food and beverage minimum. It’s one of the wildest times of the year, so if you’re planning to visit Vegas, make sure to book a hotel early and anticipate football parties up and down the Strip. Here’s a preview of some of the best places to watch the Big Game on February 12.
Chickie’s & Pete’s (Sahara)
The Sahara is home to Chickie’s & Pete’s, a sports bar and restaurant with Philadelphia roots. The venue hosts a Big Game party, beginning at 2:30 p.m., with food and beverage credits built into the ticket price (beginning at just above $200). Feast on cheesesteaks, buffalo chicken nachos, wings, burgers, pizzas and of course, the restaurant’s famous Crabfries. Tickets are available online.
Tilted Kilt (The LINQ Promenade)
For those in the heart of the Strip, consider watching the game at the Tilted Kilt on the LINQ Promenade. It sits between The LINQ Hotel and the Flamingo and is an easy walk from Caesars Palace, the Cromwell and Bellagio. Tilted Kilt (featured in our LINQ bar crawl) is a Celtic-themed sports bar with dozens of TVs to ensure there isn’t a bad seat in the house to watch the game. Food and drinks are served by girls in skimpy outfits, guaranteeing a great time regardless of whichever team wins. Make an easy bet at The Book inside The LINQ Hotel.
Tap Sports Bar (MGM Grand)
TAP Sports Bar inside the MGM Grand is a paradise for true fans. Authentic sports memorabilia covers the walls and 60 high-definition televisions are in place to make sure guests don’t miss a moment of the action. There is seating for 200 people, a great atmosphere and an amazing selection of local and seasonal craft beers, not to mention signature bar bites and dishes like the Beer Can Chicken. TAP is very close to the MGM Grand’s sportsbook, making it convenient to place a last-minute bet.
HyperX Arena (Luxor)
The HyperX Arena typically hosts video game tournaments, but is transforming into a football viewing party for the Big Game 2-8 p.m. inside the Luxor. All tickets are $110 and include open bar. Book a reservation for a table or VIP room (equipped with video game console upon request) and enjoy the best views of a large video wall to catch every play in high-def color. Dozens of televisions are on display throughout the 30,000-square-foot arena. Call liquors, beer and wine will be available through the third quarter. Order pepperoni pizza bites, truffle fries, tuna poke nachos, chicken wings and other bites a la carte.
Hard Rock Cafe
The Hard Rock Cafe is known for rockin’ music, delicious American cuisine and an impressive collection of music memorabilia. Pair that with the excitement of the Las Vegas Strip and you have the ultimate destination for football fans to eat, drink and enjoy the Big Game. Spanning over 42,000 square feet, the venue invites guests to experience three towering floors that include a patio, lounge, concert hall and interactive “Rock Wall” to digitally search memorabilia at other Hard Rock Cafe locations. Guests can expect a five-hour premium open bar (2-7 p.m.), food stations serving game day favorites and a guaranteed seat included in the admission price of $300. Tickets are available online.
Las Vegas Events Center
Just south of the Fremont Street Experience, the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center is hosting an outdoor party dubbed the “Biggest Big Game Bash 2023.” Admission is free with drinks and game-day bites for sale. Watch the action on a massive stadium-sized screen with betting odds updated in real-time. Tables and mancaves can be reserved in advance with beverage minimums in place.
The 21-and-over Circa resort is one of the best places in Vegas to watch the Big Game, presented in grand fashion on a 78-million-pixel video screen at the multi-level sportsbook. Choose from a variety of packages with stadium seating, ranging from drink tickets to all-inclusive deals with bottles, open bar, burgers and other food. Football fans can also cheer on their favorite team at Stadium Swim, a rooftop deck with heated pools, cabanas and other VIP areas. The game will be shown on a high-resolution, 143-foot, 14-million pixel screen with pyrotechnics and other special effects all afternoon long.
The Hofbrauhau Bavarian beer hall is throwing a Super Sunday bash with tickets available online for $170 per person. The price leaps to $200 per person at the door. Seating begins at 12:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis, although all ticket holders have guaranteed seating. The first 350 tickets purchased get to sit in the beer garden.
