Real Neverland kind of place:
Roller coasters in the sky. Tuxes with built-in lobster bibs. Fanciful swashbuckler shows.
Next up: an evening of trying to make Gretzky’s head bleed.
Presenting EA Sports Bar, a new lair stocked with bottled beer, leather sofas and old-school video-game-related tomfoolery, popping up tomorrow inside the Cosmopolitan.
Think of this place as the basement lounge your most fortunate childhood pal would’ve had if his parents did a little less parenting and a little more fueling your late-night PlayStation benders with cerveza.
Saunter in off the Strip and settle into a hand-tanned leather couch. A video game concierge will hand you a game menu. Tonight’s selection: boxing. Football. Hockey. Tennis. You name it—he’ll set it up and get you situated with microbrews and some salmon jerky to snack on.
Oh, and never mind the crowd forming on the sidewalk. They were there for you when this place was a wedding chapel, and they’re here today to support your decision to go for two on a bootleg option.
And if the gaming gets heated, proceed to the bar, where you’ll resume a lighter form of competition on a 1930s-era wooden foosball table.
We’re pretty sure there’s a sportsbook that will take that action.
