NBA playoffs

We're headed to Paradise Island this weekend :) Staying at the Comfort Suites and my sons are wondering if they'll be able to watch the NBA playoffs. Are there sports bars in the Atlantis hotels and/or Comfort Suites where they can watch?

There is a sports book in the Casino at Atlantis that will have all of the playoff games. I believe your sons would have to be 18 to watch the games there. We were there during the NFL season last year and the sports book was packed. We watched the Falcons game sitting at the bar in the restaurant that is just off the Atlantis lobby. The only thing resembling a sports bar at Atlantis was the Atlas Grill which is now Olives.

Virgil's BBQ has a nice bar area with many TVs. Only issue with it is that its closed a few nights a week.

I don't think your sons will have a problem watching the games in the sports book area especially if it's crowded. It's not like there is a guard by the monitors watching for juveniles nor is there any door to the area. Just be discreet and don't run around like a kid.

Tiger.. there ARE people who's job it is to keep the kids out of the casino area. They may not be so obvious, but they are there.

I was thinking about this too. My husband and I are basketball fans. Was also wondering what places to go to to watch the NBA playoffs. We will be there this weekend.

The sportsbook is new and nice with comfortable seating but it is not very large. during the nfl season there is not enough seating for Sunday That was compounded by the fact they had seats reserved for VIP's. I don't know if it would be as crowded for the nba playoffs. You may want to get there early to be assured a seat.

Thanks! The boys are 17 and 10 so I guess the bar is not an option. Hopefully they'll be able to catch the games somewhere.
