Hot Girls, Cold Beers and VIP Bottle Service: What’s Not to Love About a Las Vegas Sports Bar?
Sports betting has been around since the first cave man accepted a fighting challenge to win the love of his favorite cave girl. “Hey Grunk, I got 3 T-rex teeth down that Brog can beat your butt”, and so sport betting began. The Ancient Romans made things a bit more interesting when they decided to pit man versus big, hairy beast and the Emperor started placing rubies down on who he hoped would come out alive.
Thankfully, sports betting has gotten to be a bit more civilized (at least we like to think so) since then. Now you just hop a plane to Vegas, place your bet with your favorite book and then head out to one of the many Sports Bars located on the strip. Here you get to watch your favorite team fight their own bitter battle to the end while downing drafts and chicken wings. Whether you like your sports served with hot girls or VIP bottle service, there’s a seat somewhere on the strip for you.
Blondies Las Vegas: Of course MSN’s pick for best sports bar in the country would be in Vegas, right inside Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile. Sure, there are the big screens tuned in to every game going on imaginable and sports memorabilia galore, but that is the norm for a Sports Bar. What got the guys at MSN so excited were the hot cheerleaders serving them their rib eyes and draft beers. Or maybe it was the beer pong tournaments, beer pong has that same effect on guys.
Steiners Pub: This is where Las Vegas locals go to watch sports and the minute you step through the doors you’ll understand why. 70 different types of beer, plasma screens playing the latest games, and video poker to help keep that hometown feel Vegas-ey. This Sports bar has become so popular that it has turned into its own mini franchise with not one, or two, but three separate locations. If you’re the guy who likes to yell at the refs from his seat, feel free to do so here, with plenty of company.
The Ainsworth: Nestled in the corner of the casino floor at the Hard Rock, this sports bar is more like a sports lounge. Don’t let the high class décor fool you though, with over 20 big screens scattered around you know that the latest basketball stats are their first priority. Take advantage of the relaxed ambiance with VIP table service, where $400 will get you your own private table with a full view of the game, your own VIP hostess and a bottle of Patron Silver, complete with the salt and lime.
Lagasse’s Stadium: This is where you watch the game when the food is as important to you as the score. Owned by the Bam man himself, Chef Emeril’s take on the sports bar is as over the top as he is. There are over 100 flat screens plus a projection screen, stadium seating and even a sports book inside of this 24,000 sq. ft. venue. But none of that compares to his menu which features Creole favorites like beer steamed mussels or Southern classics like BBQ baby backs. One taste of the sweet potato fries and you will forget all about the grand you just lost on New York.
Even a Roman emperor would have to admit that watching a big game is better in Vegas. (Hopefully) There is a lot less bloodshed, and the beers are served colder than ice.
