The 2022/23 NHL season has come to an end, and the Stanley Cup playoffs are right around the corner, which means it’s time for us to cheer extra hard for our favorite team – the Vegas Golden Knights! While it’s the end of the regular season, we’ll still be crossing our fingers throughout the playoffs. Claiming their fourth division crown in six years, the Golden Knights have made it into the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the Western Conference’s No. 1 seed, giving us even more games to catch this year leading up to the championship!
All eyes have been on our Knights this NHL season, and everyone is on the edge of their seats looking forward to the Stanley Cup. No matter what, the Golden Knights have proven their dedication to Las Vegas and win or lose, the Knights’ loyal fans will always stay true to the players, season after season. If you’re in town for a home game or catching an away game on the screen at a sportsbook or sports bar, use this guide to plan an epic Vegas Golden Knights hockey weekend.
With only a handful of Golden Knights home games remaining in the regular season, they’re sure to be exciting events, especially as the team gets closer and closer to the Stanley Cup playoffs. If you’re lucky enough to have tickets to a game at T-Mobile Arena, get ready for an exciting time! The local VGK fans will be there in full force cheering on their team. Be sure to buy your very own jersey, too. Who will you sport? With centerman Jack Eichel, defensemen Shea Theodore and Alex Pietrangelo, and forwards like Reilly Smith, Chandler Stephenson, and Jonathan Marchessault, it’ll be hard to choose just one jersey!
On top of the hockey action, you’ll find a lot of great amenities at the arena. The state-of-the-art arena allows great views of the ice from almost any seat. Hungry or thirsty during the game? From Bud Light to upscale wine bars and award-winning sandwiches to sushi bars, the food and drink options at T-Mobile Arena will make your Golden Knights home game even better. You can also grab a mid-game drink at one of the lounges around the arena, like the Hyde Lounge, ABSOLUT Vegas Lounge, Bud Light Lounges, and Jack Daniel’s Lounges.
You’ll also want to download the Circa Sports® app so you can place any bets right from your seat while watching the action live!
If you can’t make it to one of the remaining home games or are in town for an away game, there are plenty of places to watch the games all around Las Vegas. For bettors, head to the sportsbook to watch the game and put some money behind it surrounded by other NHL bettors and fans. At the Circa Sports Sportsbook at Circa Resort, you’ll likely see the game on the 3-story-tall, 75-million-pixel screen.
Or, move it from the ice right to the pool. At Circa Stadium Swim®, you can watch the game on the 143-foot screen while lounging in one of the 6 pools. It’ll be hard to find a more exciting spot to cheer on the Knights Go big and order the Zamboni – a tribute to the Knights featuring 1 Methuselah of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne and 10 champagne spray bottles.
For those who prefer the vibes of sports bars, Vegas has you covered. You can watch VGK hockey games while surrounded by screens and drinking an ice-cold beer or eating a delicious burger. To see some of the Circa Sports action, grab a bite and beer at Victory Burger or have a front-row sportsbook view and cocktail at Overhang Bar. To really immerse yourself in hockey, head over to BarCanada®, a Canadian-themed bar that truly captures the hockey spirit. It’s also right next to a Circa sportsbook, making it even easier to bet on the Knights! At the end of the game, grab a celebratory drink at OneBar, where you can get a golden yard drink to really fit the vibes.
The 2023 NHL playoffs will surely be exciting, especially as the Golden Knights continue on their path toward the championship. If you have the chance to be in town for one of the games, expect one of the best trips as you cheer with locals! Still need a place to stay while in town for a VGK hockey game? Well, what better place to do it than a place that has the word “Golden” right in its name – Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, of course! Keep the golden Vegas vibes going and book a room at the Golden Gate for the next Knights game.
