Big tv & luxury dining?

I'm looking for a place where my boss and his colleague can watch an NBA playoff game and have dinner. Is there perhaps an upscale sports bar, or a fine dining restaurant with a big screen tv? Something that would be suitable for business travelers, and not too far from Mandalay Bay?

  1. Is there a sports book at your hotel's casino? If not, find a casino with a sports book or sports book desk and call 'em and ask where to watch the playoffs and eat. I bet they'll know...

    1. Las Vegas is loaded with "Casual +" restaurants that have televisions in the bar areas, but when you move to the higher-end dining it becomes a bit more difficult to find. First is it specifically Celtics/Lakers Game #2 on Sunday? If that is the case it would rule out one option right under the Mandalay Bay roof - Charlie Palmer Steak at the Four Seasons has a couple of screens in the bar/lounge area, with comfortable seating and excellent food, but they are closed on Sundays. If it is for one of the games next week, that would be a good option. If they want to stay close to Mandalay Bay, StripSteak and SeaBlue, at the MGM Grande, bring good dining options with a view of the televisions, and If they want to avoid a noisy setting, the bar area at Circo (Bellagio) is a personal favorite for watching a sporting event.

        Thanks for those suggestions! It's Celtics/Lakers on Tuesday. They're staying at THEhotel at Mandalay and Charlie Palmer's was the concierge's recommendation... but when I googled, I didn't find any talk about a tv so I was leery... but it sounds like that may be a good spot for them. I did see a recommendation on here for Circo and that's definitely on my list. Thanks again, much appreciated.

          The Bar @ Carenevino (Palazzo)is one of my favorite spots for great dining and game watching. Excellent food, and service. Another option would be the Bar @ DB Brasserie...Wynn
