The Palazzo gets ready for March Madness with a pop-up sports bar in the former Lagasse’s Stadium space. Brackets @ the Stadium offers beer and food along with a place to bet on the games
William Hill, which operates the Venetian Race and Sports Book, provides the betting options.
Fans can watch the games on more than 100 television screens and stadium-style seating can be reserved at the large, 9-foot-by-16-foot screen.
Food options include a half-pound certified Angus beef “build your own” burger; a beef hot dog wrapped in bacon and topped with pico de gallo, guacamole, roasted poblanos, mustard, and mayo; a tandoori grilled chicken wrap; spicy Cuban sandwich; Bavarian soft pretzel served with Fontina cheese fondue and beer mustard; chicken wings and tenders served with a choice of sauces or dry rubs; pizza options; and more.
For drinks, fans can order cocktails with Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey and Herradura Tequila, as well as Bud Light, Stella Artois, Michelob Ultra, Shock Top, Bud Light Seltzer, and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer.
The venue, which will open at 8 a.m. on Friday, March 19, will be available through Monday March 22.

Morning sessions run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and afternoon sessions go from 3 to 10 p.m.
Pricing depends on seating. Head to the patio starting at $150 per person, while upper-level balcony and lounge seating starts at $250 per person. Prices skyrocket from there, with a VIP suite for eight people going for $4,400.
