22 Las Vegas Sports Bars to Visit For an Ultimate Game Day Experience

Catch the big game while eating great food

View as Map

Las Vegas went from promising rookie to big-league sports town faster than a Formula 1 car can speed down the neon-lit Strip. Now, we’re a winning, full-throttle professional sports city. The Vegas Golden Knights raised the Stanley Cup in just their sixth season. Our WNBA Las Vegas Aces have won back-to-back championships and the city is hosting its first Super Bowl in 2024.

Sports fans are coming to Las Vegas in big numbers and they’re finding plenty of places to play, drink and eat. From reliable neighborhood sports bars to Strip resorts, the places to catch a game seems to multiply by the day.

So, what makes a great sports bar? Well, you need dozens of television screens, seating for all those fans, and an exceptional menu featuring chicken wings, hefty sandwiches, finger foods, and unique dishes that will carry you through overtime. Place your bets, then head out to one of these sports bars for your fill of game-day action and championship-caliber food.

More country music bar than sports hangout, the four-story Blake Shelton honky tonk is still an impressive place to down a beer and catch a game on the 38-foot-tall LED screen.

Loaded tots, shrimp corn dogs, brisket sandwiches, and St. Louis-style ribs, which can be smothered in Ole Red’s traditional or Korean bar-b-que sauce or a honey bourbon glaze, are some of the menu items.
