Follow that up with a pregame meal at a rooftop bar and restaurant, BrewDog Las Vegas. Enjoy the best views of the Las Vegas boulevard with one of 30 craft beers and exclusive brews of the on-site microbrewery. Then, it’s time for the game.

After the game, head to Downtown Las Vegas for cocktails and more in the Fremont East Entertainment District. Here, you’ll find music clubs, lounges and bars with handcrafted brews, restaurants, boutiques, and other arts and entertainment venues perfect for celebrating after any game.
