Cosmopolitan Sports Book Review

Cosmopolitan Race and Sports Book

Seats: Approximately 50

Screens: Approximately 25, with large screens that are configurable

The ultra hip Cosmopolitan’s sportsbook is located on the second floor of the property adjacent to the Marquee night (and sometimes day) club. This is one of the smaller sportsbooks of the major hotels in Vegas and contains the usual Cantor sleekness in a more condensed space compared to other sports books on the strip. Cocktail service is available but you will have to pay for your drinks.

Cosmopolitan Sports Book

If style and coolness takes precedence over comfort and free drinks, then the Cosmopolitan sports book is for you. But there is another factor to consider with this sports book – the food options. Holsteins Shakes and Buns, located just a few steps away, arguably provides the best burgers on the strip. Their alcohol laced shakes are also top notch. There is usually a wait to be seated, however the bar inside the restaurant usually has a seat or two available with ample flat screen HD monitors to follow the sports action. A second, and quicker option for a bite to eat is Secret Pizza. This place is such a secret, that the Cosmopolitan website does not even list it under its dining page, but many have already discovered it. It is a New York style (thin crust) pizza joint hidden at the end of an unmarked corridor…no signs, no name, just a very tasty and reasonably priced  slice of pizza waiting to be taken back to the sportsbook. Pabst Blue Ribbon and IPA beer on tap are also available as the perfect pairing to your pizza slice. Have fun searching for this “hidden” gem.

Odds and Ends: If you choose to not make the trek to the second floor, there is a betting window at the Book and Stage Bar on the first (casino) floor of the Cosmopolitan. Just like the aforementioned Secret Pizza, you will have to look for the betting window behind the bar area (trust us, its there). This bar/lounge has somewhat of a cult following given the quality of the drinks and the indie bands that play there in the evenings. The Book and Stage is actually not a bad lounge-style space to catch the sports action, as there are great flat screens throughout the space. And of course, there’s the wagering availability via the hidden betting window if you need to get that halftime wager in while enjoying the high-end, and very delicious, mixology style cocktails.

The Cosmopolitan Sports Book is a nice space located within one of the hippest hotel/casinos in town. The screens, as in all Cantor operated sports books, are crystal clear HD and there are great food options – solid.
