Last updated: October 6, 2015 at 4:52 pm. Posted by in Las Vegas Bars, Things to Do in Las Vegas. Comments Off on Score a touchdown at Las Vegas’ top spots for football viewing.

New England Patriots quarterback (and dreamboat) Tom Brady’s four-game suspension has been thrown out by a federal judge, so we’re gonna call it: Football season can officially start! Even though Las Vegas doesn’t have its own NFL team, football lovers have plenty of options when it comes to finding the perfect venue for cheering on their home team (or rooting for the team on which they placed bets). We dug into the playbook and found not only the best places to watch football in Las Vegas, but also got the skinny on all the specials and giveaways they’ll be offering all season long.

Bally’s Las Vegas

Sully's Bar

We like our martinis shaken…just like a quarterback after a sack.

Sully’s Bar

With an extensive draft beer selection and a location right in the middle of the action at both Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, Sully’s Bar offers a convenient spot to grab a table and catch a live game on TV while enjoying discounted drinks. These specials are also available at all casino bars inside Bally’s and Paris:

  • Buckets of Miller Lite or Coors Light: 5 for $25
  • Ketel One Bloody Marys: $8

We’re Sear-suckers for football.

Chef Brian Malarkey’s Caesars Palace restaurant is known for its creative twists on classic American comfort foods, but during football season, Searsucker also becomes home to America’s favorite sport.

The Cromwell

Interlude

If James Bond was a gridiron fan, this is where he’d go to watch it.

Interlude

The Cromwell’s European-inspired, boutique hotel vibe might not scream “pigskin party,” but if you’re looking for somewhere a little different to celebrate the tossing of the (hopefully fully inflated) oblong ball this season, you might want to check out Interlude.

The LINQ Las Vegas

There are so many bars, restaurants and lounges at The LINQ offering viewing options throughout the football season, we wouldn’t be surprised if on Sundays we saw bouncing cheerleaders and shirtless slot players body-painted in team colors all over the casino. The outdoor LINQ Promenade alone is home to 306 TVs and 660 beer options over 300,000 square feet. Let’s take a look at the highlight reel:
