    My wife and I will be in Vegas in less than 3 weeks and would like to find a casino bar with multiple tv's that have all the sunday football games on. Anyone know which casino bars would be the best? How hard is it to get a seat at the old Las Vegas Hilton?

    They have an auditorium like set up there as well as seats at the main book on the floor so you should be able to get a seat in one of those spots. To be safe you may want to get there around 8-830 to stake a spot out.

    Not too many people realize the back bar at the Gold Coast has all the games on and seating is available most of the time at the bar,though you can only see a few tv's overhead at a time..though they do have tables and one or 2 bigger screens working..Nice quieter place than the usual packed sportsbook bar (Rio) that you have to grab a seat(s) around 9 am..
    I see your Orleans sig,free shuttle to the GC..Nothing fancy at the GC though but fun to watch the games and slow play the VP while watching the games.

    Thanks Jamesxnj! Actually I will be staying at the Gold Coast on Saturday and Sunday nights before moving to the Orleans on Monday so the back bar at the Gold Coast will work out perfect. Thanks Rocky Balboa but I don't really want to try and get a seat somewhere at 8:00 or 8:30 on a Sunday morning. But if I did can I just put something on the seat to reserve it or would I have to literally stay in the seat until kickoff of the first set of games?

    You would have to be in the seat...its not like the pools where you can lay your towel and stuff out and then go wandering. Because the book seats are such a premium they'd probably get snatched up.

    This is always my biggest "challenge" I am going to likely end up at the Pub @ Monte Carlo - great special ($45 all you can eat [small bfast/lunch buffet] and an open bar set up with vodka).. if there is anything better out there let me know.

    Have fun!

    I always go to the LVH (now Westgate). There's always been tons of extra seats every time I have gone. It's the same theater used in the Movie "Elvis. That's the way it is". It's huge. Comfy theater seats. To get more than Miller Beer, you have to step outside of the theater and go to the bar and shlep your drinks in. There's no cocktail waitresses (at least when I went last season).

    LVH is awesome for Sunday NFL football....hands down the most fun we had last season when me and two other dads took our 21 year old sons to Vegas for the first time.

    I watched at blondies in miracle mile yesterday. I made reservations online a couple weeks before the game and prepaid ($25/pp, you book base on the # of seats for that table). Very busy/need to make reservations. Went as expected. Ordered food/drinks and they deducted the $150 I prepaid from the total. Game sucked (rooting for cowboys) but ok complaints about the location. A lot of TVs and everyone had a good view (maybe different during the early game since afternoon was only 2 games)

    Agreed, the Hilton is the best for NFL watching. No need to arrive early, as plenty of seats to be had in main theatre. That's where my son and I plan to be this weekend.

    I'll be going in November. After you get back from there this weekend can you let us know if there are any changes (positive or negative) with Football Central since the handoff to Westgate?

    Does anyone have any info on Palace Station bars to watch Sunday morning big games? Will be there in the morning and was wondering at what time do they get crowded?
    Any suggestions which bar is best?
