It’s appropriate that this spot is called a “stadium,” because the space is so massive that it exceeds a typical sports bar: the 24,000 square ft., bi-level dome boasts over 100 flat screen TVs and a sleek, modern interior. And these aren’t your average bar bites either, considering it’s Emeril Lagasse behind the menu. Expect elevated takes on pub staples, from small fare like chili cheese fries with homemade beef and bean chili, as well as heavy-hitting standouts like the Creole Burger, a nod to the chef’s Louisiana roots with Andouille sausage, garlic mayo, three chili pepper gouda, and caramelized onions.
The concept behind Hard Rock hotels is simple: people need a place to crash after raging, gambling, eating, and drinking all night. And the Vegas outpost ensures that you'll be able to accomplish all of those things in one spot, with three towers devoted to hotel rooms, the casino, over 200,000sqft of pools, nine restos to booze or grab a bite, plenty of ways to (bachelor) party during your last nights as a free man, and more.
