Also, once the tournament field is announced, the world’s largest March Madness bracket will be featured on the overhead Viva Vision screen. The brackets are updated throughout the tournament and it is really a cool thing to see if you’re a college hoops fan or just a sports fan in general.

Viewing Parties

There are several viewing parties going on downtown including events at The Golden Nugget, The D, and El Cortez. All of the aforementioned are opening up their ballrooms to hold March Madness events, which include multiple screens, food and drink specials, as well as betting stations to get your action in on the basketball games.

Fremont Street and downtown in general has a heavy concentration of bars both in and outside of the casinos. As far as March Madness goes, The 777 Microbrewery at Main Street Station is a solid choice with good beer selection, tasty food, and multiple HD screens.
