Best Places to Watch the Big Game in Downtown Las Vegas

February isn’t just about Valentine’s Day — it’s also about football!

About The Teams

The teams are set, The Philadelphia Eagles make their return to the Big Game since 2005 when they lost to Tom Brady and The New England Patriots.

The Patriots look to win their 6th championship in the last 15 years and continue their run as the most dominant NFL team in recent memory. This will be their 8th championship appearance in the last 17 years.

This showdown should be one for the ages.

Where To Watch The Big Game?

It is never too early to start making plans for the Big Game, and in 2018 there is no better place to watch the Big Game and party afterward than Downtown Las Vegas. Cheer for your team and enjoy delicious food and drinks at the following downtown destinations.

Plaza’s Big Game 2018 Viewing Party

To watch the big game, join The Plaza’s massive Big Game Party in the newly renovated Sierra Ballroom. Included in the ticket price, we will have a stadium food buffet, open bar, William Hill betting stations and sports memorabilia for purchase. The game will be broadcast on several large screen televisions and projectors, so you’ll have a great view no matter where you are.

Every year, the Plaza’s Big Game Viewing Party offers both residents and tourists an exciting environment, complete with excellent food and drinks, for rooting on your favorite team!

Amid the Big Game festivities, commercials, and performances, it’s also worth noting that Big Game Sunday is one of the biggest drinking days of the year.

Have you ever thought of a hotel room as an alternative to drinking and driving?

The cost of a DUI can be $1,000’s of dollars and leave a permanent mark on your driving record. Taxis and ridesharing apps might be convenient, but they can also be expensive and time-consuming alternatives to drinking and driving. Drivers are also very cautious about accepting fares from intoxicated passengers.

Our hotel rooms are oftentimes less expensive than a round-trip ride and are a short walk from all the action. Best of all, you’re never too drunk to sleep so you don’t have to worry about us not accepting your reservation.

Book your accommodation at The Plaza Hotel early – rooms tend to run out fast for this special event.

The William Hill Race & Sportsbook Bar

Located on the casino floor of the Plaza Hotel is the William Hill Race & Sportsbook, the perfect place to watch the biggest game of the year. Place your bets and enjoy an array of beer, wine, and cocktail choices at this cozy sports bar. The best part is, you’re located near exciting casino gaming action — a perfect way to spend halftime if you don’t care to watch the show.


However, if you do want to watch the show you can enjoy watching Justin Timberlake perform from our viewing party. Grab yourself a drink, sit back, relax and be entertained by Justin Timberlake’s return to the halftime show after 13 years when he performed for the Big Game in 2005. Timberlake is said to be releasing a new album in 2018 so there’s speculation that he will be playing some new songs during the show.


After the game, Downtown Las Vegas has several attractions to keep the party going well into the night.
