The Cosmopolitan is not your average Las Vegas resort experience. The Cosmopolitan is a Hipster’s paradise — a blend of arty sophistication and ultra glam aesthetics, combined with some of the hippest restaurants, spas, and lounges in Las Vegas. If you’re looking for a place that attracts a younger hipper crowd, this really is the best place to be.
Top Things to See at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas
Your entrance into the Cosmo… Enjoy the Free Parking
It may seem weird to start an article talking about parking, but if you’ve been in Vegas for any amount of time you know the parking here sucks. To make matters worse, some genius executives at a certain collection of casinos now believe they should be able to charge you exorbitant amounts of money to park in their nasty garages. Not the Cosmo. The Cosmo has some of the best parking in town; the parking garage is easy to access, the Valet is Free, they tell you how many spots are available on each level, and unlike some other parking experiences in Las Vegas you won’t feel like you need a bodyguard to walk through the garage!
The Cosmo’s Lobby; a Digital Display of Art and an Assault of the Senses
The moment you walk into the Cosmo, you know you are in for a treat. Even the lobby is unlike anything else you will experience on the strip. Wrapped in digital displays, the West lobby is a constantly changing visual masterpiece that will make you feel like you’re in a modern-day version of Fear and Loathing.
The West Lobby is a kinetic space, centered around eight giant translucent columns wrapped with mirrors and LCD displays. The displays give the lobby an urban, modern, and hi-tech feel, and will give you plenty to look at when having a drink at the Vesper bar right next door.
Before you start your night of fun, check out the Sahara Spa & Hammam
There’s a reason the Sahara Spa & Hammam at the Cosmopolitan made our list of the top spas in Vegas; it literally is an oasis in the desert. This place will overwhelm the senses while at the same time melting away every stress you brought with you on your trip!
The Gigantic Chandeliers & The Chandelier Lounge
The Chandelier Lounge is quite literally a giant chandelier that will make you feel like your sitting in the middle of the Swarovski showroom. The Chandelier is a three-story bar surrendered by crystals, and it’s probably one of the coolest lounges on the Las Vegas Strip!
The Wall of Sewing Machines
Right across from the Chandelier Lounge is one of the largest displays of antique sewing machines in the country at All Saints Co. Ltd. This display gives you an idea of the artsy feel and aesthetics you will see as you stroll through the Cosmo.
The Marquee Nightclub – There isn’t another club like this in Vegas!
The Marquee is one of the hottest nightclubs in Las Vegas, and honestly, even people watching in the area outside the club is often times more exciting than some of the lesser known clubs in town. The things you see!
Where to get a Quick Bite at the Cosmo
When you get done clubbing or playing the slots, chances are you are going to be looking for something to eat. But who wants to sit down and wait for hours after you’ve been partying the night away? Don’t worry we have you covered with two of the best late night food spots in the Cosmo: Eggslut and Secret Pizza.
Yes, that is the actual name! Located right across from the entrance to the Marquee nightclub this place can really draw quite a crowd. But location isn’t the only reason; they have some damn good, you guessed it, EGGS!
Eggslut started out as a food truck in West Hollywood but quickly gained notoriety after they opened a brick and mortar location and was named one of the top 10 new US restaurants by Bon Appétit. If you love eggs, then you have to try out one of their signature egg sandwiches — after a long night, this can be just the thing to help you survive!
The Secret Pizza Place
How much hipper does it get than a secret pizza place for only those in the know? On the third floor, right across from the escalator lies one of the Cosmo’s hidden gems – something that is sure to hit the spot after a nighttime of drinking. If you’re looking for a cheap and quick place to get a bite to eat, head on down the secret hallway to find the Cosmo’s hidden pizza parlor.
From a restaurant inspired from the ancient gambling destination in Japan to a sandwich shop that worships at the altar of bovine & swine, Block 16 Food Hall is a new concept brings together an impressive collection of nationwide restaurant purveyors from the country’s most traversed city streets.
The food hall sits on the second level of the Boulevard Tower and is going to be a great spot to satisfy those late-night Las Vegas cravings.
