Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Pools

Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Restaurants

Our recommendation: Rose.Rabbit.Lie: A Modern Supper Club

Upscale cocktail attire is required at this warm, intimate, and engaging restaurant.  Indulge in reinvented classics alongside live entertainment. Try their ‘Caviar Tacos’ voted “Best Small Plate” by Vegas Seven.  Or try the ‘Heavenly Egg’, described as literally, “Heavenly” and the ‘Beef Wellington’ that is beyond tender. Enhance your experience with creative whiskey based cocktails and playful desserts like the ‘Caramel Corn Trifle’.

Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Lounges

Our recommendation: The Chandelier

A “multi level architectural wonder” that is draped in crystal lights.  Grab a ‘We’re All Mad Here’ cocktail: an ode to Alice in Wonderland, it’s a gin-based drink that starts out blue but changes colors once blended, and is accompanied by an edible tag that will make your tongue tingle.  Or even try the secret menu’s lemon/ginger ‘Verbana’ margarita, which has an edible flower that will totally numb your mouth.

Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Entertainment

Our recommendation: The Chelsea

A 40,000 square foot concert and event venue that is unlike any other.  Stop by the vintage lobby bar before or during the show. Make sure to rent out a private VIP gallery box to receive special expedited line entry, a personal cocktail server, and access to the best seats in the house.  

Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Nightclub

As many say, “you only live once”...therefore I suggest splurging on this 2,411 square foot one bedroom villa or the 3,224 square foot two bedroom villa with an outdoor dining terrace and private balcony.  Not only do you get 24 hour airport limousine services, you also get 24 hour butler service and preferred access to all amenities, like daily clothes pressing.

Wynn Las Vegas Restaurants

Our recommendation: Lakeside

Sip on alluring cocktails while watching ‘The Dueling Pianos’ - a lively show where two talented musicians attempt to out-play each other during an energetic set that includes today’s top hits.  Enjoy ‘The Dream’, a cocktail that has essence of elderflower and hibiscus liquors, or try the classic citrusy ‘Wynn Margarita’ to get your night started off on the right note.

Receiver of the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ Award.  This highly-acclaimed Japanese-inspired restaurant offers the freshest sushi, Wagyu Banquet Teppanyaki, and rare sake from Japan's Hokusetsu brewery on Sado Island.  The choices may seem overwhelming since there are so many bougie options, but guests love the truly divine yellowtail belly and the delectable miso black cod.

Nobu Hotel Yelp Reviews

(3.5 Stars)  Yelpers enjoy the discreet/quiet location, impeccably clean rooms, and the delectable in-room dining options. Yelpers dislike how difficult it is to get their calls returned, late check in times, and an unfortunate lingering sewer smell on the higher levels.

Overall Recommendation

All three of these hotels have their high points, and you’ll be getting your money’s worth whether you’re staying in a standard room or a fancy bungalow.  What makes these hotels special are the unique touches and details in the decor, amenities included in your stay, and the location - right on the Las Vegas Strip.  

Our choice:  The Cosmopolitan has the best price for a killer location and a plethora of restaurants and shops to explore.  Choose between three pools to lounge during the day, then enjoy your evening at one of many casual lounges or in the multi-leveled and upscale Marquee Nightclub.  The options seem endless at The Cosmopolitan.
