There’s something euphoric about watching the Super Bowl in a roomful of people who love the smell of pigskin as much as you do. Toss in a bottomless bucket of beer and that’s a traditional game-day gathering. But why limit yourself to one kind of experience? Las Vegans have options. That’s why we’re blowing the whistle on seven places to watch the big bowl.


Pair your rum with yard runs at this Caribbean-inspired lounge. Food and beverage packages start at $200 with specialty hot dogs and smothered nachos serving as comfort grub and a free-flowing booze selection to keep you in (or out of) the zone. In The Mirage, 702.792.7615;


Searching for an Italian take on tailgate fare? Look no further. Chef Enzo Febbraro, dubbed 2013’s Best Chef on the Strip by Vegas Seven, is dishing out an all-you-can-eat-menu full of wood-fired margherita pizzas, chicken Parmigiana sliders, rice arancini and truffle fries to kick off the big day. Prices begin at $125. In The Wynn,702.792.7615;

DB Brasserie

If you’re more partial to the French than the Italian, DB Brasserie in The Venetian is your best bet. The game will be aired at the bar, with sound running throughout the restaurant. Happy hour runs from 3-7 p.m., with two specials: burger and beer, and wings and beer, both for $15. In The Venetian, 702.430.1235,

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar

Did someone say “all-you-can-drink”? Bottomless servings of Miller Lite and Coors come with the $150 ticket, plus shot and drink specials with every touchdown. And did we mention the Fireball Whiskey wings? Who could say no to that? In The Linq,702.731.3311,

Cabo Wabo Cantina

Watching the game on a 184-inch video grid is what Super Bowl dreams are made of, and Cabo Wabo’s delivering. The viewing party starts in The Loft, an exclusive area above the restaurant with enough 80-inch TVs to make a football fan weep. For $200, an open bar stocked with margaritas, wine and beer options awaits you. Soak up some of that pre-game with an all-you-can-eat buffet full of authentic street tacos and executive chef Tacho Kneeland’s signature sliders.

Who knew frozen custard and pigskin went so well together? New York- New York’s newest burger joint offers fans the chance to score a Two Pint Conversion. The play? Buy one pint of the Shack’s world-renowned custard and get a second free. Those itching to study every play can view the game on Shake Shack’s six-screen video wall.

Social House

Sipping sake on Super Sunday is anything but traditional, but we love it. Known for its pan-Asian cuisine, Social House challenges fans to go with their gut this game day and pick a winner. Guess the team and final score correctly, and you’ll receive a complimentary dinner for two. You can also try your luck at the Sake Bomb Giveaway, meaning if your team scores, you get a sake bomb as a reward. In the meantime, chow your way through the final quarter with slow-cooked Kalbi ribs, chicken wings dipped in yuzu chili sauce and corn on the cob topped with dynamite sauce and Parmesan cheese.
