EA Sports Bar opened this week, in time for Monday night's NCAA men's basketball tournament championship game.

The new bar at the Cosmopolitan will be open until at least June at the pop-up space just inside the resort's Strip entrance.

Inside, visitors can watch games on flat-screen monitors around the bar or play their own on nine PlayStation consoles. As of Monday morning, five of the nine spaces were already reserved for the title game between Kentucky and Kansas.

For $10 per hour, customers can play video games produced by EA Sports. Buckets of drinks and snacks are available for $20 to $50, which includes the fee for video game play. Games include Tiger Woods PGA, Tour 13, Madden 12 and FIFA 12 soccer.

EA Sports Bar is open 11 a.m. to midnight Sundays through Thursdays and until 1 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The bar is the latest to take over the front space, following a pop-up wedding chapel. Cosmopolitan representatives say it's part of their plan to provide fresh looks inside the main entrance on a regular basis.
