Hoops and Hops at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

3 Days of College Basketball at The Chelsea


March Madness is a big deal in Las Vegas and these days the parties are getting bigger than Super Bowl events. If you need a bigger, better way to watch college basketball the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has you covered with a luxury basketball experience that will feel a lot like going into the greatest man cave available to watch the tournament.

The Chelsea is a plush theater and it is transforming into the perfect spot to engage in some serious basketball watching along with a lot of fun activities to keep you busy in between the bracket watching. Imagine a sports lounge where snacks, games, television screens and space combine to make the entire March Madness chaos a bit more civilized. You'll get plenty of snacks that include Warm Pretzel Rolls with beer cheese and German mustard, Philly Cheese Steak Burritos as well as lighter options like Italian chopped salads and fresh cut fruit. Also games and activities include blackjack and bracket betting, shuffleboard, billiards, pinball and even a hardwood basketball court.

This is not your typical March Madness tournament viewing party.
