Where To Watch The 2018 Big Game In Las Vegas

Last updated: January 30, 2018 at 2:14 pm. Posted by in Things to Do in Las Vegas. 2 Comments on Where To Watch The 2018 Big Game In Las Vegas.

The Big Game in Las Vegas might be about the teams on the screen but let’s be real, it’s at least 75 percent about the food and beverage situation. Whether your team has made it to the final showdown or not, chances are you’re looking for the ideal viewing scenario so you can eat, drink and cheer your way through the game.

Las Vegas is the perfect place to overindulge while you root for your team, or the best commercials. You really do need an unlimited chicken wing buffet in your life. Whatever your ideal game day situation is, Las Vegas restaurants, bars and sports books have you set with a plethora of options to choose from. They won’t have sway over the score but a belly full of Big Game munchies takes the sting out of a loss and will make your team’s victory that much sweeter.

Caesars Palace

We’ll begin with the mother ship – Caesars Palace – which is known for its wide array of dining options and its massive sports book, perfect for this holiest day of football. See what strikes your fancy.

    Great article but there are no contacts listed for any of the Harrah’s options. I’ve called their operator as well as their concierge and they don’t have this info. Can you tell me who you spoke to about their packages? Thank you.

  2. Allison Duck

    Hi Karin!

    Thanks for that catch. I have added in booking links above for the various Harrah’s parties and you can also contact Armando Torres at 702-693-6273 for more information and to book your Big Game Experience. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the game, wherever you’re watching 🙂
