With every bar, nightclub, restaurant, and strip club worth its salt hosting some kind of “Big Game” event, we doubt that there’s a complete list of options anywhere, but what follows is our pick of those parties that stood out as offering something of interest, loosely grouped by area. Obviously, any party that involves making a reservation may already be sold out, so if something you see piques your interest, call ASAP to find out and bag a spot while you still can!
LAS VEGAS STRIP
Of course, there will be a “scene” in every casino race and sports book, not to mention all the sports bars and restaurants, the but here are some highlights, presented in no particular order:
