We are practically still in mourning over the closure of the ESPN Zone at New York, New York as it was such a clutch free WiFi spot. But when one joint closes in Vegas, another one scrambles to open up in its spot and so today we have The Sporting House Bar & Grill, a spin-off of the joint already located out in Henderson.

The new sports bar is set to open this Sunday, on 10/10/10, and to celebrate it is offering a $10 GameCard to its All-Star Arcade--so long as you are wearing a jersey with the number 10 on it. Okaaaay....

Nevermind that, let's get to the important stuff--the TVs. Here's what you can expect inside:

In The Screening Room located on the first-floor, guests can enjoy the year’s biggest games on two 16-foot, high-definition screens and a dozen 36-inch, high-definition video monitors. The room offers an unrivaled atmosphere and unbeatable access to each day’s best matchups.

Tiered seating assures that all guests have a perfect view for every game, match or event. Each table in The Screening Room features an individual video monitor that guests can adjust to keep track of additional action.

As for grub, the two-story restaurant and bar has hired executive chef David Waltuck, the chef/owner of four star Chanterelle in New York City, and Damien McEvoy, the Ark Vegas Restaurant Corp.’s Executive Chef for the past 14 years. Thus the food is a little higher-end than curly fries and chicken wings.

Items on the menu being touted in the press release are Maine lobster club wrap, Wagyu Kobe flat iron steak and smoked meatloaf. But of course, there will always be chicken wings and other classic sports bar fare--just with a different twist like honey hoisen chicken wings, wood roasted BBQ chicken pizza, Philly cheese steak and a wide variety of burgers.

And about that All-Star Arcade, it promises more than 10,000 square feet of interactive and competitive sports-themed attractions plus a bunch of TVs so you don't have to miss the real game while you're playing games.

The Sporting Zone House will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Now this might have you a little upset since football on the West Coast starts at 10am. Never fear, The Sporting House will be open at 9am on weekends during the football season. But no word yet on the free WiFi.

Lastly, is it just us or did the Sporting House kinda rip off the ESPN logo a bit?

Umm...

I'm not a bright man, but isn't this essentially the EXACT same as ESPN Zone?

Agreed

Looks a lot like espn zone logo and sounds a lot like the inside.  

But I am glad there's something in that spot again.
