A Real Winner: Las Vegas' 10 Best Sports Bars

If you think the only place to catch a game in Las Vegas is at a casino sports book, you would be seriously mistaken. The city is home to some of the best sports bars fans will ever step foot in, offering an array of delectable dishes and ice-cold brews to complement the viewing experience.

For those hoping to place a wager on their favorite team, both Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo and Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book at SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino have sports books located within the venues, so guests don't have to venture far to place their bets. Regardless of a game's outcome, visitors are sure to feel like a winner as they dine on celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse's menu of game-day favorites or GQ's "Burger of the Year."

If you'd rather be surrounded by sports history while watching the game, TAP inside MGM Grand features an array of sports memorabilia on its walls for guests to look at in between innings, quarters or periods. If sexy servers are more your thing, the waitresses at Twin Peaks and Blondies Sports Bar & Grill serve up plenty of eye-candy in between all of the action on-screen–in fact, the servers at Blondies are actually dressed up like cheerleaders to help cheer your team along!
