Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino is offering two viewing parties, along with drink specials, tailgating food options, and exclusive downtown Las Vegas hotel packages to get the party started even before the official kickoff.

Where to Watch the Big Game

With all the chaos and inflated prices on the Las Vegas Strip, downtown Las Vegas has become one of the most popular destinations to watch the game in Sin City. Here are the hottest options to view the big game downtown:

Big Game Tailgating Party at Downtown Grand (Free)

The free Big Game Tailgating Party will feature a multitude of big screen TVs, plenty of tables and seating on the casino floor, and food & drink specials including hot dogs, nachos, pretzels, wings, $2 domestic draft beers, and more!

While you watch the game, be sure to hit up your favorite slot machines and table games too. The TV screens are viewable from almost every part of the casino, so you don’t have to pause during your hot streak.

Things to Do Before the Big Game

If you plan to spend the entire weekend in Sin City, downtown Las Vegas is the best place to be.

Here are a few must-do items to check off your list:

All-You-Can-Eat Brunch at Freedom Beat


The big matchup doesn’t start until Sunday afternoon. What to do until then? There’s really nothing better than fueling up on some comfort food with brunch at Freedom Beat! Set the tone with bottomless mimosas, bottomless well Bloody Marys, or other cocktails served fresh from the Freedom Beat bar. You’ll also have as much breakfast food you can handle from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Try to get there early and be prepared for a short wait – although it’s well worth it, we promise.

Dinner at Triple George Grill

It’s well known that Triple George Grill is one of the most iconic restaurants in downtown Las Vegas. The evenings leading up to Sunday are the perfect opportunity to check out this downtown staple and sample its nostalgic cocktails and dishes.
