No, it doesn't have a sports book. But the EA Sports Bar at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas will feature Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s, six high definition televisions, and an assortment of, duh, EA Sports titles for patrons to play.

It's another real world presence for the sports label, which last September opened a physical store in Charlotte, N.C.'s Douglas International Airport. In October, Oklahoma started selling EA Sports-branded lottery tickets in October.

EA Sports Bar opens at the Cosmopolitan on March 31. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the lounge is "designed to have an intimate 'living room' feel," and will serve bottled beers and snacks. A retail area offering gift items and games, similar to the airport store's wares, will also be on the site.

If you live in Vegas, EA Sports Bar will be open Sundays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to midnight and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.

I'm usually not too much of a Debbie-downer on trying new and exciting things, but this just sounds like a bad idea. ESPN restaurants are different, in that you can watch actual sports and have a great conversation at the bar with other sports fans.

This is more like playing at home, but having a waitress.
