Las Vegas Super Bowl Parties 2023 & Best Places to Watch the Game
Updated January 12th, 2023
(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.)
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.
Las Vegas Super Bowl Parties 2023
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. Prices may increase from what’s posted below closer to game day. (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 LVII 57, on Sunday February 12th, 2023.
Westgate Super Book Big Game Party 2023
With 30,000 square feet, the Westgate Hotel & Casino’s sports book is one of the best sportsbooks in Las Vegas, offering every prop bet you could possibly imagine. In short, it may be the epicenter of sports betting in Las Vegas, if not the world.
As such, it means you’re unlikely to score one of the prized 350 seats in this massive book. So instead, you could watch the game at the exciting annual Big Game Party held at the Paradise Event Center.
There are tables and TVs everywhere, along with giant LED walls and a betting area. Tickets cost $250 per person, and that includes all fees. It gets you an open bar (starting at 1:30 PM), reserved seating, tickets for raffle drawings, along with an all-day buffet.
The open bar here includes: Captain Morgan, Jack Daniels, Smirnoff vodka, Bacardi rum, Beefeater gin, Korbel brandy, Crown Royal, Cazadores tequila and Fireball, along with beer on draft, house wines, oop, juice and bottled water.
The buffet menu, (which runs all day) includes: Pulled pork sandwiches, mini Philly Cheesesteaks, Greek feta wraps, Italian subs, chicken wings, pizza bites, pretzel bites, veggies, chips, fresh popped popcorn, sweets and more.
Tickets are available here: Westgate Big Game Ticket
A reserved table for 10 people also comes with unlimited drinks and buffet and raffle tickets. Tables cost $2,250 and are available here: Westgate Big Game Table for 10
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 several 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 are a little confusing, as it includes a minimum spend, which Caesars says is a “aka beverage credit.” Prices also can change based on demand, however as of this update they are as follows, before fees, tax and and the 18% gratuity on minimum spend.
|Type of Seat||Drink Benefits||Price|
|Bleacher Seat||2 drink tickets||$225|
|Row 1||3 drink tickets||$405|
|Row 2||3 drink tickets||$505|
|Row 3||3 drink tickets||$605|
|Row 4||4 drink tickets||$755|
|VIP Seat||Unlimited drinks, access to expedited betting window||$1,200|
|VIP Fan Cave (for 10 people)||Unlimited drinks, access to expedited betting window||$10,000|
