It’s the hugest event in sports, the Big Game, the bowl of free guacamole. That last one is kinda just something we call it, but how often do you get free guac? That’s a big freaking deal. You’re going to need a place in Vegas to watch the game and do enough shots that you can appreciate how awesome it is to be in Vegas for the Big Game. Thankfully, this is a city for all you people who see an open bar as more of challenge than a luxury. We’ve got a ton of spots on our Big Game Page, but let’s look at a few of them right here:
How much: $175
Whatcha get: Bottomless selections from Beer Park’s tailgate menu and the open bar
Beer Park popped up just last week. It’s almost like they planned it perfectly to open just in time for the Big Game. In addition to the stellar views of the Las Vegas Strip, Beer Park has plenty of TVs to stare at, or bottoms of beer mugs to stare into if your team just did something stupid. This is the type of event that Beer Park was made for, like pretty much literally. With great game-day food and two or three oceans worth of beer, Beer Park will feel like your neighborhood tailgate party, just on the Las Vegas Strip.
Gilley’s at Treasure Island
How much: $175
Whatcha get: All-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet with barbeque and football favorites
Country folk know their football. So it’s no surprise that the delightful country bar Gilley’s will be having a rootin’ tootin’ Big Game party this weekend. Ridin’ right along with the booze and beauties will be a gigantic barbecue buffet. And if you feel like hoppin’ up and doing a bit of line dancin’ when your team scores a touchdown, they probably wouldn’t mind. Just don’t go showin’ off too much, there’s always time for a turnaround.
How much: $175
Whatcha get: A five-hour premium open bar, game day food and guaranteed seat to watch the game
Rock ‘n’ roll and football go together like leather pants and pigskins. So what better place to watch the Big Game than a spot dedicated to the biggest names in rock. Hard Rock Café on the Strip will be cranking the hikes up to 11 and giving you a chance to watch the game surrounded by rock memorabilia and incredible atmosphere. If you love football and music, you can’t lose. And if you’re really only watching for the halftime show, this is a spot that will truly appreciate the jam.
How much: $145
Whatcha get: General admission with buffet and open bar from 2-5 p.m.
Lavo at Palazzo is a beautiful, upscale spot for romantic rendezvous and luncheons done right. But that doesn’t mean they’ll tone down the football one bit. Lavo Bowl is a chance to cheer and holler surrounded by posh styling and amazing food. If you love the game but aren’t into the sports bar or tailgate scenes, this is a perfect opportunity to watch some football and keep your pinky up as you sip your martini.
How much: Options start at $65
Whatcha get: Open bar only, buffet only and buffet and open bar ticket options
If you’re not a pool club person, you might not know that Marquee Dayclub has a massive dome they can pull out over the pool area when they want to party it up during the winter months. Now that you do know, you can picture how incredible it’ll be to watch the Big Game there. You don’t even have to care about what’s on the screens to enjoy yourself at this party. Just pick out a hottie and cheer when they do.
How much: $150
Whatcha get: Includes transportation, front of the line admission, exclusive VIP seating with huge HD screen viewing and digital audio, showroom access throughout the game, upscale tailgate buffet, upscale raffles and prize giveaways
Sports aren’t usually the thing people stare at in Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club, but with all the action gracing the screens, you might not be able to look away. Of course, while everyone else is distracted, you might have the luscious buffet all to yourself for a few minutes. With a massive screen and plenty of food, this is one party football fans will love. It feels like there’s some other reason you might want to go to Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club, but we just can’t put our fingers on it. 😉

Whatcha get: Open bar from noon – 5 p.m. VIP packages include table seating, beverages and delicious game-day fare from 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria
The Sayers Club is one of our favorite venues for live music and partying. And we’re happy to let football fans enjoy it for the Big Game – just keep it looking nice for White Label Thursdays next week. At this beautiful spot, you can enjoy the game in a hip, sophisticated locale where style always has the ball. If your idea of getting dressed up for the game is throwing on a cocktail dress and/or three-piece suit, The Sayers Club has the atmosphere you’ll dig.

Known for being an awesome party spot, Señor Frogs is one of those places that you hit up when you don’t want to stop for anything.

Señor Frogs will have all you need to enjoy the game and the experience of watching it in Vegas.
How much: $135

In keeping with the Las Vegas tradition of watching the Big Game in nightclubs, the Tao Bowl at Tao will bring football fans into the magnificent world that is Tao Nightclub and let them cheer on their team, hopefully while doing a bit of dancing. Tao is a club that shines with an authenticity we love. No doubt they’ll bring that to the game-day experience as well.

Whatcha get: Table packages include open bar and food credit
Umami Burger, Beer Garden and Sports Book is one of the best places in town to watch sports, drink beer or do both of those things at the same time. You can even place bets, as the name implies. This spot really has it all. It’s got a beautiful location looking out onto Las Vegas Boulevard, amazing food and oh so much beer. When you want a place with a bit of everything, where the party will be perfect and the only thing you’ll have to worry about is whether your team can get the first down, this is the place to go.
It should come as no surprise that pretty much every place in town will be showing the game. Check out our Big Game Page for more listings. And if you can’t get to any of these picks, you can always try: Tilted Kilt at the LINQ, iBar at the Rio, Crazy Horse III Gentlemen’s Club, Cabo Wabo Cantina at Planet Hollywood or Rockhouse at the Venetian.
