The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas:  Keeping Their Promises.

The name invokes an image of swank that the hotel and casino deliver on in spades.  The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is the resort that brought sexy back to the strip.  Decadence is everywhere, from the wide array of innovative dining concepts to the upbeat day club and night club scene.  When first opened back in 2010, The Cosmopolitan promised to be “Just the right amount of wrong”.  In just 4 short years, they have certainly lived up to that promise.

There are close to 3,000 rooms in the Cosmopolitan Hotel, most of which boast a private terrace. A basic Terrace Studio includes a kitchenette with microwave and fully stocked mini bar and can be booked for as low as $190 per night.  One bedroom rooms with a terrace overlooking the fountain and a Japanese soaking tub start at $260.  You will be hard pressed to find these kind of luxuries in other hotels for those prices.

Most people are drawn to the Cosmo for the party scene.  Inside you will find half a dozen unique bars and lounges to get your night started, before embarking on the real sizzle which is the Marquee Nightclub. One of the highest grossing nightclubs in the US, “wild is laid” when sophistication and opulence pave the way for a night of drunken debauchery.

The Cosmopolitan keeps that vibe going with its daytime extension of the infamous Marquee nightclub.  Marquee Dayclub is a vibrant pool party full of that same stellar ambience you get at the nightclub.  It gets crowded fast, so your safest bet is to book a cabana or daybed through Vegaster if you want to ensure entry and a place to chill.  On a typical Friday the cost of VIP service at the Marquee dayclub is $4,000 for a grand cabana.  With room for up to 15 people, you and your new friends have plenty of space to “make a hot mess”.

If you have aspirations of celebrating Memorial Day weekend in Sin City, book a bungalow at the Marquee Dayclub on the 24th to catch the musical magic of world famous DJ Kaskade.  The price of a Grand Cabana jumps to $15,000, but you can opt for the smaller, yet equally lux bungalow cabana for $7,000. If your entourage is small, VIP bottle service at an umbrella covered daybed will be perfect at a cost of only $2,000.

Calm before the storm. Vegaster Tip: It won't stay this way long!

This year, the Cosmopolitan has added a refreshingly new nightclub experience to its already rockin’ roster.  Rose. Rabbit. Lie. is a mixture of restaurant, show and club.  You know you have entered a whole new realm of cool when you are greeted by a 500 glass champagne fountain. The restaurant features deconstructed versions of classic dishes, such as the $1,200 crab stuffed with lobster meat.  Afterwards share drinks from a spiked punchbowl while waiting for the show. Tickets for the show, Vegas Nocturne, are bought separately starting at $115.  It’s sexy, risqué and fits right in with the Cosmo’s newest slogan “Wrong has more fun”.

Always grab from the top.

Everything about the Cosmo is fresh and innovative.  In just a few short years they have proven that “mutation is progress” by taking what you expect in a Vegas venue and giving it that tweak to make them stand out above the rest.
