Father’s Day in Vegas can mean many things. Perhaps you got dad the ultimate gift and sent him to Las Vegas to have a trip filled with culinary delights and a side of poker. Maybe you gave him a for-you-for-me gift and came to Vegas with him to enjoy some shows and attractions. No matter what type of vacation you’ve picked, it’s time to spoil dad with delicious food and unique Vegas experiences.

Let Dad Live Like A Caesar

Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino offers a special Father’s Day Brunch where dad can eat Like A Caesar. Hit up the seafood station for fish & chips, lobster benedict and boursin and crab scrambles. Other Father’s Day specials include corned beef hash, pineapple empanadas, huevos rancheros, walnut shrimp and wagyu steamship beef carved to order.

If dad’s a golf fan, catch the US Open golf tourney on the TVs at Montecristo Cigar Bar where dad can grab his favorite cigar, try three Gentleman Jack specialty cocktails and get raffle tickets for a Sunday drawing for golf-themed items.

Out on the Spanish Steps outside Caesars Palace, dad can try his hand at a nine-hole putting course on Saturday and Sunday. While dad’s putting in the shaded putting tent, grab him a specialty Jack Daniels cocktail from the Spanish Steps Bar. Beer and shot combos will be specially priced as well.

Party by the pool at the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis with live DJs, go go dancers and grape goddesses who can serve dad grapes poolside.

How to spend Father's Day in Las Vegas - Take Dad to Jerry Seinfeld at The Colosseum

Does your dad have #dadjokes? His corny one-liners might not land him on stage at The Colosseum but he can definitely enjoy the humor of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham Friday, June 16 and comedian and actor Jerry Seinfeld Saturday, June 17 and Sunday, June 18.

Treat dad to some meat

If the dads and granddads in your life like meat then Vegas is definitely the right place for them to pig out —literally. This town is filled with delicious barbecue, steaks, meat-filled buffets… you get the idea.

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace celebrates Beef Wellington Week June 12-18 with the celebrity chef’s signature dish so let dad splurge on a decadent dinner of Beef Wellington served with red wine demi glaze and truffle mashed potatoes.

Try some tasty meats at Virgil’s Real Barbecue on the LINQ Promenade where dads can enjoy complimentary bottomless Virgil’s Ale with the purchase of the entrée. A barbecue meal is ideal for the whole family to share, just make sure you give dad the last rib. It’s his day after all. Try The Pig Out featuring delicious dry-rubbed, Memphis-style pork spare ribs, sliced Texas beef brisket, Carolina pulled pork, and a 1/4 barbecued chicken, served with your choice of two sides and Virgil’s famous cornbread. Pro tip: Get the cheese grits and start with Trash Fries covered in bacon and cheese. Save room for key lime pie or and banana pudding (because dad deserves both).

Put a lid on it

Just down The LINQ Promenade from Virgil’s is Goorin Bros. Hat Shop where hat-loving dads will actually flip their lids. Take dad in to upgrade his headgear to the next level. This San Francisco-based hat company upholds the family tradition of the neighborhood hat shop with friendly and knowledgeable staff who aim to make you love hats as much as they do. Right now, the store is full of Panama hats and packable straw hats, which are a great pick for summer. They’ll help you help dad look as fly as he feels.

Make dad like a High Roller

While you’re at The LINQ Promenade, take dad on The High Roller. He’ll ride for free with the purchase of another ticket so now’s the time to take him to the highest heights in the world’s tallest observation wheel. Enjoy the view of the Las Vegas Strip and take some fun selfies.

Free Beer

How to spend Father's Day in Las Vegas - Free Beer offer to Dads at the Beer Park

Is your dad a beer fan? Stop by Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas so you can share a little cheer(s) with him on the outdoor patio, overlooking the picture-perfect Strip. On Father’s Day (June 18), Dads will get the hookup with an all-day barbecue and beer special. Order the BBQ platter with Beer Park’s Signature Budweiser Beechwood-smoked St. Louis ribs, chicken and beef brisket, served with a side of coleslaw and potato chips. Dads will also receive a complimentary Budweiser Signature draft beer when they arrive. That’s right. Dad can get FREE BEER on Father’s Day while the whole family eats delicious food! Finish the day off with a game of giant Jenga, shuffle board or Connect Four.

Dad deserves Lobster

Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace offers a wide variety of steaks, seafood and all the classic steakhouse sides dad loves. Lobster lovers can start off with Maine lobster bisque or the seafood platter with Maine lobster, king crab, shrimp and oysters. Keep the theme going with the lobster and filet mignon surf & turf with a side of lobster mac and cheese. Throw in a side of bacon creamed spinach because dad should definitely make sure he eats his vegetables. If dad’s an oyster fan, Old Homestead offers an assortment of oysters including fried oysters, oysters Rockerfeller and oysters and pearls served with Golden Osetra Caviar.

How to spend Father's Day in Las Vegas - Feast on the lobster at The Palm Restaurant

Lobster at The Palm Restaurant makes Father’s Day decadent.

Just ahead of Father’s Day, Friday, June 15 is National Lobster Day. The Palm Restaurant, inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, offers a lobster special in honor of this tasty crustacean. Dad’s in luck because not only does the special run through Father’s Day weekend, but all summer long until August 15.

Enjoy a 4-Pound Jumbo Nova Scotia Lobster split for two, along with two starters and one of the signature family-style sides. Get the goat cheese whipped potatoes. If you’ve never been to The Palm, then now’s the time to wow your dad with a lobster special he’ll truly appreciate. If you have been to The Palm before, then you know what’s up and you probably already have your reservations for Father’s Day Weekend. If dad likes chocolate, be sure to save room for the Chocolate Fourless Cake.

You can bet he’ll enjoy the WSOP

How to spend Father's Day in Las Vegas - World Series of Poker 2016

Qui Nguyen won the 2016 Main Event for $8,005,310 and the bracelet.

Take dad to the World Series of Poker. Whether dad’s a poker fanatic or not, it’s quite the spectacle and it’s very fun to watch the players do their thing. Watching poker may sound about as interesting as watching paint dry but I promise, you’ll be surprised how entertaining it is to be a “railbird.”

Go fishing

Is dad a sushi fan? Take him for a truly gourmet sushi dinner experience at Nobu Restaurant at Caesars Palace. Sit at the sushi bar to get a view of the fresh fish you’re about to eat or sit back and relax at a table in the main dining room. There are plenty of veggie, vegan and gluten-free options available plus a selection of Japanese craft beer and whiskies. Opt for specialties like the rock shrimp tempura or sashimi salad, or ask about the off-menu items which vary daily.

Sushi Roku in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace is another great option. Surprise dad with a sushi lunch before roaming the Forum Shops or work up your appetite by shopping first then having dinner at Sushi Roku. Dads can enjoy complimentary hot sake on Father’s Day. Let dad customize a bento box for lunch. The spicy pork belly “Kakuni” fried rice is everything you want in a fried rice bowl — spicy, tender meat atop flavorful rice that’s all tied together with egg that makes the dish downright creamy. Dinnertime specialties include the yellowtail with diced chilies, toro sashimi and the baked lobster roll with creamy miso sauce.

Remind Dad It’s What’s Inside That Counts

Take your pops to the REAL BODIES exhibit at Bally’s Las Vegas to geek out and get your science on. If he likes to reminisce about the time “when you were thiiiiiis little,” take a look at real bodies in many stages of development, from the very young to the other end of the spectrum, and everything in between. You’ll get up close and personal with real human bodies in this unique and compelling exhibition on human anatomy. Travel through the body and the exhibit system by system but remember, don’t fall for any “pull my finger” jokes, especially if dad’s trying to fool you while you’re browsing the digestive system section.

Show your dad he’s king

Rebel rock star dads, or those who like to sport that look, will love King Baby inside the Appian Way Shops at Caesars Palace. The custom jewelry store specializes in hand-crafted, unique pieces created in their Santa Monica, Ca., or Nashville, Tn., outposts. Dad can find a piece that speaks to him or customize a special order in any size he needs. It’s the ultimate personalized gift to help him show off his own style.
