Vegas' first EA Sports Bar set to open at Cosmopolitan!

The Cosmopolitan will open the city’s first EA Sports Bar on March 31. Part sports bar, part living room, the EA Sports Bar will feature Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles, a selection of EA Sports games, high-definition televisions and a bar set among nine living-room-style vignette seating areas.

In addition to the lounge, video game concierges will offer games such as “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13,” “Madden NFL 12” and “FIFA 12.” The bar area features six wall-mounted, 70-inch LED screens and a foosball table. The retail area will feature EA Sports, Major League Baseball and National Basketball Association-branded gear for sale.

EA Sports is offering three fans of the EA Sports Facebook page a package complete with airfare and a VIP experience for two at the Cosmopolitan. The trips will be timed around major sporting events, including the National Football League Draft, the National Hockey League's Stanley Cup Finals and Wimbledon.

The bar will be open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. until midnight and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Guests must be at least 21 years old to enter. For more information, call (702) 698-7640.  

This will be a great place to watch the NCAA Final Fours!
