A trip to see UFC in Las Vegas is sure to be adrenaline-packed, but when you’re in The Greatest Arena on Earth™, the fight is just the beginning of the excitement. From bars near T-Mobile Arena to wild after-parties, to epic sportsbooks, there are so many things to do in Las Vegas. Here are eight ideas (one for each side of The Octagon) to help you get the absolute most out of your trip.
Must See Bars Near the Arena
Grab a cold one at Beerhaus at The Park, just a short walk down to Toshiba Plaza and T-Mobile Arena. This modern, German-style beer hall provides an extensive draft beer selection, tasty food options and, of course, plenty of TVs to catch the fight.
An epic weekend calls for an epic view and it doesn’t get much better than SkyBar’s view from the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide a stunning view of the Strip and skilled mixologists whip up equally impressive drinks. And even though you’re way up high, you’re still in close proximity to the action at T-Mobile Arena.

Robert Irvine’s Public House at Tropicana Las Vegas aims to satisfy your cravings for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Unique pub-style comfort food inspired by chef Irvine’s travels, along with libations from a wraparound bar, are sure to please any palate.
Experience the Action at Iconic Sportsbooks
Aptly named the SuperBook, the 30,000-square-foot sportsbook at Westgate Las Vegas is the ultimate sports betting experience. With over 350 seats and a 220-foot by 18-foot 4K video wall, you’ll be able to catch everything happening in The Octagon from any seat in the house.
