With the NFL regular season complete, that leaves 12 teams to battle it out on the gridiron for a shot at playing in the Super Bowl Feb. 6 in Dallas. If you can’t land tickets to the playoff games, let alone the Super Bowl, consider one of the haute spots as your destination for all things sports related.
Sitting on the sports book floor can be crowded. You have to fight for a seat or get there early to find a table. For the ultimate private experience, book one of the four private Skyboxes at the MGM Grand Race & Sports Book. Ten people can watch the games from plasma televisions with surround sound all situated on the second level. Compare it to getting a skybox at the game; you can see every play.
At the Sporting House Bar & Grill at New York-New York, you can check out the Screening Room with its two 16-foot, high-definition screens, a dozen 36-inch, high-definition video monitors and individual monitors at every table. Pop up to the Sporting House Game Center, where more than 10,000 square feet of interactive and competitive sports-themed attractions await.
For classic bar food coupled with sports, try the Race and Sports Book at Aria at CityCenter. The Skybox Sports Bar & Grill nestled inside has 23 high-def screens, 12 beers on tap and American pub food.
Get in on the betting action and more than 10,000 square feet of big screens at the Mirage Race & Sports Book. The projection screens will pull you into the action on the field.
At the Pub at Monte Carlo, you can find 30 televisions and a Jumbotron for your sports viewing pleasure. You can find more than 70 beers on tap and a menu with pub-style faves. You can order up adult milkshakes in flavors such as “The Luck of the Irish” or “Peppermint Snowflake.”
