(Please note that “Super Bowl” is copyrighted by the National Football League and that Caesars Entertainment properties are the only ones with an official tie-in with the NFL.)
Editor’s Note: Super Bowl 56 was a fun one, and many are already looking forward to Super Bowl LVII, to be held February 12th, 2023. We will update this article once watch parties are announced, typically beginning in November. Until then, below is the wording for the most recent parties.
There’s nothing like watching a big football game on a mammoth screen surrounded by rowdy gamblers in Las Vegas.
Football is already fun just when watching from home, but spending Super Bowl Sunday in Sin City gives the game a whole new dimension, as almost every single play elicits loud roars (or groans), from the thousands of watchers with money riding on the game.
Between the prop bets, flowing drinks, fans all decked out in their favorite team’s jersey, there is an amazingly fun buzz in the air, which is why Las Vegas bursts at the seams with visitors on Super Bowl Sunday.
In fact, last year, over 311,000 people came into Las Vegas for Super Bowl weekend, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
To put that number in perspective, 309,000 came into town to celebrate New Year’s Eve, meaning that in Sin City, Super Bowl Sunday is a bigger holiday in than New Year’s!
Hotels, (which already average a weekend occupancy rate of 95.5% during the rest of the year) fill up to capacity, shows sell out, and dining reservations get a little harder to acquire.
And while many of the sports books will reserve their best seats for their high-rollers, the rest of us have plenty of options in which to enjoy our football weekend – both on the Strip and on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.
There are literally hundreds of viewing parties, as each bar and restaurant will have some special event, however we’re just covering the bigger ones in this article. (I may receive a commission should you purchase tickets from a link on this site).
Here’s a look at the viewing party options in Las Vegas for Super Bowl 56, on Sunday February 13th, 2022, broken down by Caesars Palace, then Strip Casinos, Downtown Casinos then Off-Strip casinos.
Caesars Palace Super Bowl Viewing Parties
As an official partner of the NFL, Caesars Palace goes all out every Sunday, but Super Bowl Sunday is predictably crazy. You find TV’s and an electric buzz all over the resort of course, but there are three main Super Bowl viewing parties here: the Caesars Palace sportsbook, Stadia Bar, and the Montecristo Cigar Bar.
Prices shown below may increase, and/or seats sell out, but are current as of this writing.
- Caesars Palace Sportsbook
I remember watching the 1998 NFC Championship game here at this beautiful sportsbook while on a bachelor party. We grabbed some empty free seats.
My how times have changed.
For this year’s Super Bowl, the Caesars Palace sports book offers several viewing options among three different tiers. In the main Seating section, there are four rows and the price is based on the row. Counter-intuitively, rows are cheaper the closer to the TV screens.
Prices change based on demand, however as of this update they were as follows, before fees, but including tax and an 18% gratuity.
|Type of Seat||Drink Benefits||Price|
|Bleacher Seat||3 drink tickets||$411.87|
|Row 1||4 drink tickets||$765.83|
|Row 2||4 drink tickets||$811.87|
|Row 3||4 drink tickets||$861.87|
|Row 4||4 drink tickets||$1,011.87|
|VIP Seat||Unlimited drinks, access to expedited betting window||$1,453.20|
|VIP Fan Cave (for 10 people)||Unlimited drinks, access to expedited betting window||$18,165.00|
