California’s Best Super Bowl Parties

The best Super Bowl parties always involve good friends, great food and drinks, and some entertainment outside of the game itself.

In the center of the Hollywood film and entertainment industry, we know better than most that adding a celebrity to the mix can take a Super Bowl party to the next level. That’s why dozens of sponsored celebrity Super Bowl parties surround the big game every year.

Super Bowl 58 is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. It’s the first Super Bowl in Sin City, a legendary party town just a few hours’ drive or a short flight from Los Angeles. That’s why California’s best Super Bowl parties, including many sponsored celebrity Super Bowl celebrations, will go off up Interstate 15 in Vegas next year.

Here’s a look at the most dazzling, upscale, unique, and crazy celebrity Super Bowl parties already planned for Super Bowl LVIII this February.

What are the basics of a great Super Bowl party?

Can’t make it to Vegas? Host one of California’s best Super Bowl parties yourself by including the following elements we all know make for the best Super Bowl parties:

Good friends: Invite your best friends and family, too. A great mix of interesting characters you know and love will mean a fun atmosphere at your Super Bowl party, even if the game is a dud.

Great food and drinks: Make some tailgating classics, or order them in. Try putting together a themed menu beyond football favorites.

You can offer guests the most popular cocktails from the cities or states the two Super Bowl teams call home. If the Miami Dolphins are in the game, serve mojitos. Try clover club cocktails if the Philadelphia Eagles are back in the Super Bowl, or Kansas City Ice Water if the Chiefs return.

Some entertainment: You need something more than the game to entertain people and turn your basic Super Bowl watch party into one of California’s best Super Bowl parties. Traditional Super Bowl betting games are your best bet.

Start a Super Bowl squares game by creating a 10-by-10 grid on poster board. Sell the squares to your guests for a buck or two, and after they gobble them up, draw numbers for each space on the top of the grid and down the side. Randomly pick teams for the top and side, and the squares will correlate with the last digit of each team’s score. Give away pieces of the prize pool for matching the scores at the end of the first quarter, first half, third quarter, and the final score.

You can also try a Super Bowl props pool, putting together a list of the most popular and enticing Super Bowl props and getting everyone to fill out a sheet with their picks.

Las Vegas’ Best Super Bowl parties

  • Any famed betting? If Rubin takes the Fanatics Super Bowl Party to a Las Vegas casino resort this year, we could see some of the biggest celebrity Super Bowl bet of all time come out of the affair.

Maxim Super Bowl Party – The Maxim Casino Royale Experience; Saturday, Feb. 10, 2024

Maxim reinvents its annual Super Bowl Party with a different theme every year. There have been superhero and Treasure Island themes in the past. Last year in Arizona, it was the Catch Me If You Can 1960’s mod glamour experience. This year, Maxim is partnering with Resorts World in Las Vegas to create a Casino Royale experience with the thrills and glamour of high-stakes poker at the Casino Royale.

  • Hosts: Maxim, the international men’s magazine and lifestyle brand
  • Cost: $250-$3,000
  • Location: Resorts World Las Vegas
  • Guest list: Travis Scott and DJ Khaled performed last year. It was Kendrick Lamar and Ludacris before that. Several celebrities always attend. In fact, Terrell Owens, Fergie, and Joe Jonas are regulars.
  • What makes it must-attend/exceptional? The list of past performers is legendary.
  • Any famed betting? The Maxim Super Bowl Party is coming to Resorts World Las Vegas in 2024, featuring a high-stakes poker theme. The Dawg House Saloon & Sportsbook on the property and the Resorts World Las Vegas Live Betting Sports App should see increased Super Bowl action the night of the event.

Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Tailgate; Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024

Celebrity chef, restaurateur and Food Network TV host Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Tailgate is part food festival, part music festival, and the Super Bowl’s largest culinary event. Food, drinks, and music include 20-plus restaurant pop-ups and interactive dining experiences on game day.

  • Hosts: Celebrity chef, restaurateur and Food Network TV host Guy Fieri.
  • Cost: General admission tickets are free; VIP tickets cost up to $1,000
  • Location: Allegiant Stadium
  • Guest list: Diplo, LOCASH, and Brett Ortiz performed in Arizona. Plus, Guy Fieri is as big a food celebrity as it gets.
  • What makes it must-attend/exceptional? The restaurant pop-ups make it the culinary event of the Super Bowl and the tailgate event of the year.
  • Any famed betting? Guy Fieri’s Flavortown Tailgate is a game-day event. Local mobile networks are bound to be busy with all the last-minute mobile Super Bowl betting app action stemming from this event.

Shaq’s Fun House Super Bowl Party Presented by NetSpend; Friday, Feb. 9, 2024

Shaq’s annual Super Bowl party is part carnival, part concert. There’s a carnival midway, and the biggest names in hip-hop and EDM perform alongside circus performers. Previous lineups have included Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and DJ Diesel (AKA Shaq himself.)

  • Hosts: Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal and sponsor NetSpend
  • Cost: $250-$1,800
  • Location: TBD
  • Guest list: Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg have performed at this party in the past, so the biggest names in hip-hop and several celebrities always attend.
  • What makes it must-attend/exceptional? The list of past performers contains hip-hop royalty, and Shaq is literally the world’s largest celebrity.
  • Any famed betting? Shaq’s Fun House Super Bowl Party is coming to Las Vegas in 2024. If a casino plays host with Shaq, we could see big Super Bowl betting numbers coming out of the event. Circus Circus Hotel & Casino Las Vegas seems like a natural fit, but it may not be upscale enough for Shaq and his hip-hop celebrity friends.

Rolling Stone Live 2024; Friday, Feb. 9, 2024

Rolling Stone’s annual Super Bowl party is for the hardest-partying celebrities and people willing to pay big bucks to party with them. It’s always one of the hottest tickets in town, and captains of industry, sports team owners, superstar athletes, and A-list celebrities all attend.

  • Hosts: Rolling Stone
  • Cost: $750+
  • Location: TBD
  • Guest list: A few years ago, Rolling Stone celebrated the magazine’s 50th anniversary at its Super Bowl Party and invited A-Listers such as Nas, Busta Rhymes, and NFL legend Warren Sapp alongside a host of other athletes, celebrities, and social media influencers. Last year, Travis Scott, Robin Thicke, and DJ Irie performed at Rolling Stone Live 2023 in downtown Scottsdale.
  • What makes it must-attend/exceptional? Rolling Stone knows how to party, filling the guest list with A-listers.
  • Any famed betting? With Rolling Stone Live coming to Vegas, a casino/sportsbook venue is possible, which means the potential for hard-partying celebrities to bet big on the big game at the event.
