Football season is in full swing and if you can’t be at your favorite stadium in person, there’s no better place than Las Vegas to watch a game. Not only can you put a wager down on your team, but we have some of the best bars, sports books and restaurants where you can watch all of the action in style.

The Society Café at Encore takes tailgating to a whole new level. The restaurant offers beer, mojito and sangria specials during Saturday afternoon, Sunday and Monday night games along with a limited-time stadium-style menu.

This is not your typical stadium food – these dishes have a little something extra. Menu items include mac and cheese bites with truffle dipping sauce; nachos with melted blend of cheese, pico de gallo and guacamole; BBQ filet sliders with caramelized onions, chipotle cream and french fries; foot-long hot dogs with or without chili; and a meatball hero with spicy meatballs, sweet onions and mixed peppers, jack and mozzarella cheese.

The Las Vegas Hilton is known for its mammoth sports book and it’s a great place to be on a Sunday. The Hilton’s “Football Central” party is a free party held in the 1,500-seat Hilton Theater where fans can watch all of the games on 11 giant screens. The venue is non-smoking and satellite wagering is available. Food and drink specials include $1 hot dogs and $2 20-ounce Miller beer.  There are also special appearances by the Sin City Bad Girls. Doors open at 9 a.m. every Sunday.

Blondie’s Sports Bar inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood is the ultimate sports bar. More than 40 televisions ranging from 42-inch plasmas to a 12-foot screen broadcast all of the biggest games. There’s a full bar menu and there are $1 drinks for the ladies on Sundays. To give it even more of an authentic football feeling, some of the staff is dressed like cheerleaders.

Every Sunday and Monday the Revello Lounge inside the M Resort is a great gathering spot for football fans. Guests can enjoy stadium food specials and drink specials like $10 hand-crafted carafe specialty cocktails. Watch for appearances by the Miller Girls and NFL stars.
