Formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, Westgate Sports Book is one of the largest sports books in town and, by far, one of the best. With 30,000 square feet, over 300 seats, 60 viewing monitors, including 28 large screens and one massive 15-by-20 foot screen, this is the place to watch and bet on all sports. Streaming across the room is a 75-foot sports ticker that keeps bettors and sports fans up to date with scores and news. The entrance off Joe W. Brown Drive behind the hotel offers convenient parking, something which is hard to find around Vegas. Eight Pole Bar and The SuperBook Deli offers drinks, sandwiches, snacks, and even breakfast. Both are located right next to the big screen action so you never miss a second of your favorite game. Open Sunday-Thursday, 8 a.m. – 10 p.m.., Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. – 11 p.m.

Chicago style pizza and all the Windy City’s sports teams. If you’re not from Chicago, no worries, Brando’s has you covered. This is a local hotspot to watch all major sports games, have a drink, and savor good food with friends. Enjoy a Chicago style hot dog with curly fries, or many other menu items on the outdoor patio, or stay inside to watch the Women’s World Cup Soccer on one of the large screen LCD TV’s.

This is not your average corner sports bar. It’s chic, comfortable and a great place to enjoy a drink, bet on a game, or just relax and watch the games on one of the 33 flat-screens surrounding this sleek lounge. Located inside Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip, it’s a cut above the norm. Open 24/7, there’s no doubt you’ll find a drink and a comfortable chair at this lounge, but get there way before your games start because seating fills up fast.
