Bud Light Tail Gate

Located in front of Luxor Hotel & Casino, sports fans will find the Bud Light Beer Garden on select game days—and we don’t just mean Raiders games.

We look forward to creating new traditions at this venue for this season and beyond,” Chuck Bowling, president and COO of Mandalay Bay and Luxor, said of the venue. In true Vegas style, the Bud Light Beer Garden won’t be serving just the traditional tailgate foods. Instead, fans can enjoy food and beverage offerings from International Smoke by Chef Michael Mina and Ayesha Curry, Diablo’s Cantina, Public House and Beerhaus.

Raiders Tavern & Grill

Located inside M Resort Spa Casino, the Raiders Tavern & Grill is the ultimate spot for fans. With team decor and memorabilia along with 45 HDTVs, fans can fully immerse themselves in silver and black. The restaurant is open late every night (until 7 a.m.). The menu spans from sports bar favorites such as nachos and fried pickles to fancier fare like the braised short rib. Screens are strategically located throughout the restaurant, and the outdoor patio is a perfect place to watch the sunset (it also overlooks the pool).

Raiders-Themed Menu Items

Are you looking for some fun foods that match your Raiders enthusiasm? We’ve rounded up several great menu items around town that are perfect for fans.

Pinkbox Doughnuts

If you’re in the mood for something sweet on game day, make sure to reserve a box of Pinkbox Doughnuts—the official doughnut partner of the Las Vegas Raiders. The special Raiders-themed sweets are stunning confections that are almost too cute to eat—I was gifted a box from Pinkbox Doughnuts and struggled to eat the super adorable goodies (they were too delicious not to). Take your pick of “The Raider,” “Raiders Pee Weez,” the “Raiders Football” or the “50 Yard Line.” Do yourself a favor—get a box of them all.

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer

Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer inside Venetian Las Vegas always has the best seasonal milkshakes, but the Raiders Crazyshake might be one of our favorites. The Oreo shake is decorated with black and silver dots, a Raiders cupcake and more. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any of the craft burgers (or burger salads if you’re trying not to indulge too much).
