As if you needed another excuse to head to Vegas, the Super Bowl is an ideal time to bask in the hedonistic indulgences of American excess.
If you can’t be in New Orleans on February 3, make your way to Vegas for the next-best thing at these top Super Bowl viewing venues:
Lagasse’s Stadium at the Palazzo
It's not the Superdome, but you might not realize it walking through this huge arched entryway and sinking into luxurious stadium seating on plush elevated couches. Recline in front of 100 TVs and a giant 10-by-20-foot projection screen, then prepare for your pre-game feast catered by Emeril Lagasse himself. Eat like an offensive lineman thanks to grilled ribeye served on stacked onion rings, topped with homemade Worcestershire sauce.
3325 Las Vegas Blvd. S, The Strip. (702-607-7777)
The Sporting House Bar & Grill at New York New York
Massive leather La-Z-Boys right out of John Madden’s living room set the stage at this bustling bi-level sports bazaar where 130 HDTVs (including two 16-footers) follow you like Clay Matthews rushing the QB. Dine on lobster club wraps or Wagyu Kobe flat iron steak in the comfort of your own private MVP Room or Screening Room — where you can get as loud as you want without raising any eyebrows.
3970 Las Vegas Blvd. S, The Strip. (702-740-6766)
LVH Superbook at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
This slightly off-Strip locale is a favorite among locals and we think we know why. With the largest wagering menu in Nevada, 350 seats, and 28 giant screens (including a wall-covering 15-by-20 foot monster), the experience is a game in itself. If that’s not enough, grab a seat in the sunken-in “Ultimate Fan Cave” with your own personal 120-inch TV and lounge seating for a more professional viewing experience.
3000 Paradise Road, Off-Strip. (702-732-5111)
