Forget everything you have heard about the Raiders moving to Las Vegas, this isn't that type of article. I will still stick to the football theme however.
Beneath the Vegas lights, there are some amazing sports bars that you can enjoy watching the game of football and a lot of them won't send you to the bank.
USA Today gave 20 of the best places to watch the game, here were some of the standouts.
Las Vegas Race & Sports Bar at The Cosmopolitan
You don't usually associate The Cosmo with a sports bar, but the Las Vegas Race & Sports Bar has everything you can imagine if you want to mix sports, billiards and blackjack. Dubbed one of the "hippest hotels on The Strip," The Cosmo's new sports book is double in size and the amount of televisions will make sure you don't miss a beat.
Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo Resort
The cool thing about Lagasse's Stadium is the "chic" feel you get when you walk in. But chic comes wth a price. It will run you about $75 a person, but you're getting a lot out of it. Food from a celebrity chef and luxury boxes. You don't get a wall full of t.v's, but that celebrity chef is Emeril Lagasse, so I'm sure that evens it out.
Topgolf at the MGM Grand
I can't count the amount of times I have seen people on social media playing topgolf. If you want a laid back setting while hanging out with friends and still playing an activity, look no further than the MGM Grand. There are more than 300 HD televisions with any size you can imagine. Plus, there are five bars at the location.
This place sounds really cool.
"Those who want a mix of football, board games, ping-pong and beer in an upscale casual indoor/outdoor setting in The Strip's first park."
Located at the new dining and entertainment district called "The Park," in between the New York-New York and the Monte Carlo, you don't have to worry spending a lot of money on drinks, and you get a meat-lovers assortment of food. And what's better than that?
Tag Sports Bar, Linq Hotel and Casino
How does 300 brews sound? No, you don't have to drink them all, but it does make a more difficult decision to choose just one. But that's all part of the fun.
Located at the center of The Strip, you can enjoy the football game at any of the screens located in the different areas right on the casino floor.
