The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has partnered with EA Sports to create a new sports and video game bar on the Strip.
The 2,500-square-foot EA Sports Bar will open March 31 and will feature Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles; a selection of EA Sports games such as as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, Madden NFL 12 and FIFA 12; high-definition televisions broadcasting sporting events; and a bar.
The gaming will be set amongst nine living room-style seating areas, which will be decorated with a variety of premium hand-tanned Italian leather sofas and chairs and vintage media trunks.
“Guests can expect a mash-up of sports bar, game room and your best friend’s living room. Whether or not you’re a video gamer, it’s a great place to spend a few hours with friends,” said Lisa Marchese, chief marketing officer of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in a press release.
The glass-fronted bar will provide a street-level view of the Strip and will feature six wall-mounted 70-inch LED screens and an antique 1930s foosball table.
In addition to food and beverage offerings including a wide selection of bottled beers and snacks, a retail area will feature EA Sports, MLB and NBA branded T-shirts, sweat shirts, hoodies and caps. EA Sports Bar will also carry an assortment of gift items, books and EA Sports games.
The bar will be open Sunday- Thursday from 11 a.m. – midnight and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 1 a.m. It occupies the space that was used as the hotel’s Pop-Up Wedding Chapel over New Year’s and Valentine’s Day.
