Over the years, tailgating has evolved into a bigger trend, embraced by fans of both college and professional football. And it’s not merely an hour or two before the big game, but in many cases, fans are looking for places to celebrate from the early morning until late in the evening. Las Vegas is perfect for this type of endless party, and fans can enjoy both pre- and post-game activities around Allegiant Stadium events at The Fan District.
The Fan District, located at Mandalay Bay and Luxor, is an easy 15-minute walk to Allegiant Stadium, where fans can enjoy plenty of entertainment, choose from a host of food and drink opportunities, and even participate in meet & greet and photo opportunities with team players. The district is a great pre-event space for other local events, too, from concerts to sporting events.
Fans will enjoy brunches and game-day specials to get the party started early—and keep the party going as long as they wish afterward. Plus, with myriad room and suite options at both Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and Luxor Hotel & Casino, they can even stay right on the property. To amp up the celebration, both Mandalay Bay and Luxor are offering sports-related festivities and live entertainment options programmed throughout the season.

Flanker Kitchen + Sports Grill, a fan favorite, is one of the go-to spots for gameday action, and it’s conveniently located just steps from the walkway to Allegiant Stadium. And if you’re not lucky enough to hold a ticker, this is an ideal place to settle in, and watch the game in an elevated environment—you will definitely feel like you’re part of the action here!
After the event, there are specials to be had at The Fan District, such as:
• At popular bars Centra, Aurora, Hazel, and Franklin, sporting fans (of legal age) who show their Allegiant Stadium ticket after the event receive a buy-one-get-one free beer
• At Diablo’s, show your Allegiant Stadium ticket after the event, and get one free bacon cheese fries when you purchase one entrée.
• At Public House, show your Allegiant Stadium ticket after the event, and get one free appetizer when you purchase one entrée.
There are plenty of game day drink specials, as well. The offers extend to several of the Fan District’s most popular watering holes. At Rhythm & Riffs, EyeCandy, the Sports Book at Mandalay Bay, Centra, and Aurora, these specials run all of game day: $30 domestic beer bucket specials, $35 import beer bucket specials, $8 select beer, $7 select draft beer, $12 cocktails, and $6 shots. With deals like this, you’ll come out a winner, no matter what your favorite team does that day!
Don’t forget about parking on game day. The Fan District has you covered there, too! Luxor, Mandalay Bay, and Delano are all located within a 15-minute walk of Allegiant Stadium, making The Fan District the perfect place for event parking, along with getting your pre-game on before your easy walk to the Stadium.
