If there is one thing Las Vegas does really well, its throw a party, and the record-breaking 40 million tourists that visited in 2013 continue to prove that Sin City is a lot more than the low-ball strip clubs and smoky casinos of old. In 2015, world-class concerts, luxury hotels and legendary nightlife rule the Strip and compete on a grand scale with over-the-top ambiance and premier entertainment for every tourist dollar they take in.
Which is why every major Las Vegas hotel and nightclub has plug-and-play Super Bowl XLIX viewing parties planned to entice business. But the list is lengthy, so which one should you choose? Here’s a list of the best Las Vegas Super Bowl parties happening on February 1, 2015.
Lagasse’s Stadium at Palazzo
Lagasse’s Stadium at Palazzo – The Sport-Lovers Haven
At Lagasse’s Stadium, expect the crowd to yell at the 120 HD TVs, many will wear team logos, a great deal of beer will be consumed, and all will eat exquisite, high-end cuisine made from recipes created by Louisiana chef Emeril Lagasse.
The Super Bowl XLIX will take center stage on the 9 ft. x 16 ft. main TV. Luxury box seating is stadium-style with rows of sumptuous leather couches positioned for prime game viewing. Tables line the perimeter and traditional seats at the bar are also available. If that’s not enough, a sports book offering more than 80 propositions wagers during the game is also on site.
A few of the Big Game specials on offer include chilled Alaskan King Crab legs, 32 oz. ribeye with mashed potatoes and even clam chowder for the Patriots fans and Fanny Bay oysters for those cheering on the Seahawks.
Hardcore sports fans will pack this hot spot, so getting there early on Game Day to claim your territory is a must.
