Taste The Cosmopolitan

3 Dec
It has taken five years, a foreclosure, a few lawsuits, and an amazing partnership, but The Cosmopolitan is finally opening their doors December 15th. It will be the only casino and resort opening on the strip in 2010 with the grand opening being just in time for New Year’s Eve, one of Las Vegas most celebrated nights. Located in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, The Cosmopolitan is focusing on redefining luxury with a unique and meaningful approach with “just the right amount of wrong.” They recently partnered with Marriott International’s Autograph Collection, a collection of independent hotels with access to Marriott’s huge reservation and rewards system. Being an independent casino and hotel allows The Cosmopolitan to go beyond the standards and do exactly what they want. Besides the anticipation of Jay-Z and Coldplay’s live concert performance, the opening of Las Vegas’s biggest nightclub, and rooms that have a touch of naughty, The Cosmopolitan is offering an experience that is going to leave guests wanting to have a second round.
You can see The Cosmopolitan from a distance down the strip with their signature marquee featuring live video and a display of the restaurants, clubs, and shops that will all be a part of the two-tower monument. The casino will be on the first level of the resort offering 1,479 slots, 83 tables, a high limit lounge, and gaming in the pool area. A unique feature of the casino is the semi-private casino cabanas that allow small groups to gamble together. You may get hungry from all of that gambling, so lucky for you The Cosmopolitan is offering nine different restaurants to satisfy your hunger and leave you hankering for more. 
Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill – an electric pairing of sushi and American bistro favorites
China Poblano – an innovative new concept that brings noodles and tacos together in a festive, stylish setting

After dinner you may want to continue the night by sipping on some cocktails or even downing a bottle at The Cosmopolitan’s premiere nightclub, ultra lounge, and dayclub, Marquee, from the creators of Tao. If you need to find something to wear out on the town, The Cosmopolitan is offering an electric collection of shops yet to be seen on the Las Vegas strip.

To top off your stay you should visit Sahra Spa & Hammam and treat yourself to level of relaxation you have never experienced before. 
The experience of The Cosmopolitan is something you will have to do in person and most likely will be unforgettable. As Las Vegas is dealing with closings and shut downs throughout the city, it is awesome to know that the city will have a purple ray of light that will be shining, hopefully, for years to come.
