Hard Rock Cafe Hoops Madness description

Squeeze into your compression pants and wring out your sweatband because Hoops Madness has invaded the Hard Rock Café.

In your quest for the perfect bracket, Hard Rock Café’s Hoops Madness has you covered. Every game, every match-up, televised on the biggest and flattest screens for the ultimate game day! Just be sure to loosen up before arriving because “open bar,” and “all-you-can-eat,” means you’ll be able to toss back and wolf down from 9 a.m. until the final buzzer sounds. You’ll be glad we suggested the compression pants.

Put your money where your mouth is, because William-Hill Race and Sports Book will be on-site to take your sports bets.

This is where months of watching those teams from conferences you’ve barely heard of pays off. Get down to Hoops Madness and let the world know that you had the basketballs to choose that 12 seed over a five. Make fun of those rookies who picked the favorites to win it all. You’ve earned it.
