The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas: "Just the Right Amount of Wrong" by Jesse Bluma

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas:
"Just the Right Amount of Wrong"

We waited for it.  When The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas was erected on the west side of the Las Vegas Boulevard, it triggered heads to turn, enticed a new crowd, and filled a niche.  The Cosmo’s two towers, casino spa and casino beach club, give Vegas goers a kinetic resort for fun, play, and dining.

“The Cosmopolitan is the most original destination in the heart of The Las Vegas Strip.  This unique luxury resort and casino is unlike any other.  Enjoy residential-styled living spaces with private terraces and breathtaking views of the Las Vegas skyline.  Dining is reinvented with a one-of-a-kind restaurant collection featuring world-class chefs making their Las Vegas debut.”

Should you choose The Cosmopolitan as your destination, the vibrant scene will attract your eye.  The resort occupies what was part of the Jockey Club.  The Rockwell Group is responsible for the interior, the principals and designers included Edmond Bakos, Tucker Viemeister, Penelope Fisher-White, Lauren Farquhar and, Emily Morley.  The team created a three-story, undulating chandelier and a magnanimous lobby centered with eight large digital columns.  The fantastic lighting and changing images on the screens keeps the pulse of Las Vegas running through the casino.

The exterior of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas was handsomely designed by the Friedmutter Group Architecture and Design Studios.  Additionally, the Friedmutter Group is responsible for the pools, night club, casino, and select suites.  Brad Friedmutter is known for his work with Steve Wynn.  His wife is actress and model Kimberly Stevens. 

I have enjoyed my experiences staying and playing games at The Cosmo.  This last trip was for a wedding.  The evocative room consisted of modern furnishings, kitchenette, mood lighting, telescoping doors, two televisions, panoramic views, and a private terrace.  The amatory dressing area, bathroom, shower, and Japanese soaking tub had amazing views of the city.  If reserving a room at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, reserve a room with fountain views.

The various pool options are excellent as well, depending if you are looking to unwind or play.  The Boulevard Pool has upbeat music, a multi-level deck, cocktails, and food.  The Bamboo Pool has a terrific private feel, lulling you into relaxation with smooth music.  I enjoyed the mojitos at the Bamboo Pool Bar, a cocktail consisting of white rum, sugar syrup, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint.

  1. The space itself is great. The bar and restaurant occupies two levels, with a great balcony looking out over the city. I had a great time people watching at San Francisco event venues, especially since it was close to festive season.

  2. Hello Kent,

    Yes, so true. The restaurants in The Cosmopolitan have excellent views of the city and for people watching. Appreciate your insight. Please make sure to visit Pointe Viven again or sign up for updates.
    Thank you, -Jesse
