    A group of 8 guys were planning on getting a table at Lagasse to watch the National Championship game but when we called earlier this week things were almost sold out and we would end up being split up. Was wondering what other options are out there for a group of 8 guys where we can eat, drink and have fun. We thought about the Pub at Monte Carlo but wanted something new. We want somewhere that serves food so a sports book is out. We are doing this instead of a nice steak dinner for the bachelor. Any suggestions would be great! THANKS

    The MGM Grand has a couple of options. They have their new sports bar named Tap. You can watch the game on large televisions, have a table, and order food. It is located right across from the sportsbook's entrance. They also have a couple of skyboxes that overlook the sportsbook. They rent them out, but I'm not sure how they handle the food.

    Thanks! We have looked into the Tap and will most likely end up there but they do not take reservations. They have a sky box available at Lagasse but it is a $1500 min on F&B and I am not sure the 8 of us would eat and drink enough.

    This! We were there a few weeks ago and had a great experience. Lots of TVS. Good service and very good food and beer selection. I was impressed and recommend highly.

    Not everyone's cup of tea but eight of us enjoyed NFL divisional round playoff games at Twin Peaks on the strip last year. Plenty of last minute table availability and smoking hot waitresses which goes with the bachelor party theme.

    We're planning on a return visit the same weekend you are there.

    This too! Sat at their semi outside bar and watched the strip and enjoyed some great food and drinks! really enjoyed this place and would return. Was with two hosts who were paying with company credit card. so problem is you can't charge this back to the room or have it comped.

    Dal Toro right across from Lagasse's also seats people for the games. You sit on the couches among the cars. Not sure whether they take reservations. Something like $10 cover, which is applied to food.

    The Twin Peaks is in Planet Hollywood and Lagasse's Satdium is in Pallazzo.

    We have had some good times at Twin Peaks and that was another option. Wanted something a little more "Vegas Only" like though if that makes sense.

    I've been going with a small group every year for NFL wild card weekend - first thing to know is that everyplace will have the games on. If you want to try the Public House in the Venetian, they have several side rooms that have TV's - and you should be able to get a reservation there. We were disappointed in the experience at LaGasse - I think you can do much better. If weather is half decent, try sitting outside at Rhumbar at the Mirage - even if it's a little cold, they have portable heaters. We are flying in on the 1st this year - and planning on watching NFL games at the previously mentioned TAP at MGM Grand, Double Barrel Roadhouse at Monte Carlo for two of the games

    How early would you need to get to these places to get a decent table for 8 people? I was saying 2 hours before and my buddies were making fun of me for it being so early. I know Vegas and I know it gets busy as hell around big games.

    Blondes at least takes reservations and has a minimum tab requirement you need to prepay (or at least deposit against). You can choose the exact table to reserve and at least for opening weekend of football, something like $25/pp minimum

    Honestly, take a look at the multitude of sportsbars offstrip. Hit up a nice steakhouse first, and limo it out to a footbar bar. (Vegas has dozens) That may be a seedier option that you were looking for, but nights like this often transition to additional activities!

    Anything on the strip will fill up early, so if you end up going that direction, plan to pregame for several hours as well.

    Totally understand. TP does seem to have plenty of seating thouh even for last minute arrivals. I agree that two hours early is reasonable for most popular sports viewing venues in vegas.
