    My son likes to be on these fights and I know about Caesars room, but any suggestions of places you like, and why?
    He said he wants some place comfortable, good drink service, but not totally packed and loud.
    Thanks!

    The sportsbooks don't/cannot show the pay per view fights. It has to be in a private viewing setting. I have gone to El Cortez and Palace Station to watch. El Cortez is cheapest,but not as nice as Palace Station.

    It should also be mentioned that you cannot bet UFC at any Station Casino because of the shared ownership with the UFC.

    This is correct. If you're looking to bet, you can do that at Caesars or (I think) any other Strip casino. As far as watching, I think some of the casinos host invitation only viewing parties, but I am not 100% certain of that. I know I have received invites to that kind of stuff in the past, but not being a fan, I always threw the invitations away without reading them closely. If you or your son have a host anywhere, call and ask them

    Yes, you can bet at any casino city wide. I have never had a problem as long as you know which Casinos are owned by the Ferttita bros (station casinos), those are the ones you cannot bet.

    If I had to think of one book that might accommodate, it would be the LVH super book.

    The alternative is to bet in the sports book and order it in room. With the sports book apps you can get on your phone with direct access to the sports book, he could bet in the room on the fights as they are about to happen without leaving the room.

    If he wants the camaraderie of being in the sports book with fellow MMA/UFC fans... he should seek out a bar. Here's a list: (Lagasse's has a sports book in the bar)
