Hello again. Going to Vegas Superbowl weekend and looking for a place to watch the game. I have looked into a few places like the pub at Monte and Lagasse Stadium. The prices seem ridiculous. Does anyone know of a good place to watch with a respectable price? Look forward to your comments.

I as well am heading to Vegas for superbowl weekend , my fourth year in a row. But the prices have priced me out the viewing parties so I always either grab a seat early at a casino bar or just hang at the sportsbook. I always stay at the Orleans and have never had a hard time finding a place to watch just maybe finding a seat . They usually turn down the lights and turn the volume up ,and usually really good drink service. Well I hope that helps give you an option anyway , so good luck !! Cheers

This is my first time going for SB. Wanted to experience a viewing party but prices were crazy. The prices at the pub started at $175 per person and up to $250. Lagasse stadium was between $300 - $500 per person. We might just grab a bottle of liquor and watch in the room. Order some room service. Don't feel like standing up for 3 hours watching the game in the sportsbook. thanks and have fun.

Get there early and stake out some seats at Book & Stage at Cosmo. Watched the SEC Championship game there last month and it was a great atmosphere!

Last time I was there for Superbowl (1999 I think) we went to The Pub at Monte Carlo. It was great they divided the room in two (you chose your side by your team) and since I didn't have a team I started on one side with DonnyMac then got brought over to the other side with promises of beer! The promises came true!

3 years ago during the final four i booked a media suite at mandalay bay and had my own party. we brought 3 suitcases of liquor and ended up getting room service to bring up the grub. seemed a better way to enjoy the game w/ 15 of my friends. plus we didn't have to worry about anyone passing out at bar.

I was there for the Super Bowl last year. Ended up watching the game at the bar just outside the Paris sportsbook. I was kind of surprised by how uncrowded the book was, and we were able to belly right up to the bar and get a seat in front of a decent size TV, and had "free" drinks while we slow played some video poker. It wasn't hard to get a bet in at the book either.
That said, we got kind of bored around halftime and went and sat at some tables in the mostly empty Paris casino. It wasn't exactly a high-energy kind of day, but we liked that we weren't fighting crowds. And the wife hit a 4OAK on a Let It Ride table for $2000, which was nice.

i'm staying at Aria. Is there a bar there where I would be able to play some video poker, watch the game and get some free drinks?

Probably have to get to Skybox bar pretty early to get a good seat. I also like Bar Moderno

I've gone there yearly since 2001 for the superbowl. We have watched the game all over. From strip clubs to our room. We've done a few at the pub @ monte carlo but our whole group didnt want to pay the big bucks so we just hovered at the bar. This was just okay. If you plan to watch the game at a video poker bar get there super early to claim your spot. Otherwise they'll all be claimed. We did aria once and could not find a spot, eventually we just watched it on our room.
Last few years we spent at Elara (formerly P-ho Towers). This has been great for us. Floor to Ceiling projection TV. We stock the fridge with booze and order in pizza.
Main issues with watching it in a casino is not enough space for your group and paying a ton to watch the game + booze + food.
If you plan to watch in a free area (like a sports book or bar) get there early to claim spots. Smaller the group the better. If you are rolling with around 10, you best bet is either put up the cash to watch it somewhere (and get reservations) or watch it in your rooms.
Also if you are going to bet, do your betting on Saturday.

I've watched the Super Bowl at:
-Heart Bar at Planet Hollywood (not bad, but insanely expensive)
-Various conference areas at South Point (Cheap and very fun people to be around, just not comfortable).
This time i'm spending it at a smaller off-strip sportsbook I won't mention on here.
