Cosmopolitan Las Vegas
The Cosmopolitan is the newest hotel and casino on the Las Vegas strip. We walked around there last week and took some pictures. It’s a really well done hotel. The whole place is awesome, they’ve done a great job. I saw a lot of kids around so I am assuming this would be a good family hotel. I have only stayed here with friends and not my kids.
I stayed on the butler floor when I stayed here and I highly recommend it. Our room was huge with a massive bathroom with a jetted tub and separate shower, and had a large balcony overlooking the Bellagio fountain and the strip. I loved staying here.
When I stayed I was using a military discount and my nightly rate was less than $200. Check today’s rates.
Benefits of Staying at the Cosmopolitan
This hotels as everything you need and then some:
- Rooms with two beds: With two beds up to four friends can stay together and split costs. Or a family of four can stay comfortably in one room.
- Fantastic restaurants: The Cosmopolitan has some awesome restaurants, my two favorites are China Poblano and Jaleo. They both offer happy hour!
- Hot Nightclub: The Marquee nightclub continues to be one of the top nightclubs in Las Vegas. The outdoor portion with the rooftop patio has amazing views.
- Fun Dayclub: The Marquee is also a day club with optional private cabanas offering bottle service, private hot tubs, and a live DJ.
- Pool Time: The Cosmopolitan has two other pools besides the day club. The Boulevard pool has an exciting vibe and over looks the strip. Besides lounging next to the pool, there’s a gaming area with pool tables and video games. The Bamboo pool is a quieter area. So, if you are looking to relax and read a book, head there. (Or if you are just hungover and your head is about to explode.)
- Shopping: You will of course want to be close to shopping just in case you feel like shopping. The Cosmopolitan is close to the Shops at Crystals and across the street from the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.
Cosmopolitan Dining Options
The Henry best known for brunch. Our brunch was excellent, but I found it not to be worth the wait. I went with thier “Signature Short Rib Benedict” which was braised short ribs, soft poached eggs, hollandaise, and hashbrowns for $20. I washed it down with a few cocktails including the “HOT UNDER THE COLLAR” their House Bloody Mary with Green Chili Vodka, Mary Mix, a pipette of Sriracha, rosemary and bacon for $14.
Jaleo is the tapas restaurant inside the Cosmo. Their food is delicious, but it’s expensive and the portions are small.
Since the last time I visited they have added an assortment of restaurants, two of which I am extremely familiar with. Lardo and Pok Pok. These are both originally Portland restaurants and their food is phenomenal. I definitely recommend trying both!

Scarpetta inside the Cosmopolitan offers you guessed it happy hour Monday – Thursday from 5:30 – 7 PM with $7 cocktails and $7 food items.
This first picture is the Chandelier Bar. The Chandelier bar serves fancy martinis. I highly recommend trying the s’more martini. Or one of their signature drinks.
- Whiskey Business: This new twist on the Old Fashioned combines The Cosmopolitan’s barrel of Knob Creek bourbon with bitters, Amaro Meletti, and “Old Time Rock ‘n’ Roll” syrup.
- Finishing School: A floral mule of Ciroc Red Berry vodka served with strawberry rhubarb rose syrup, citrus, ginger beer and plum bitters.
- We’re All Mad Here: An ode to Alice in Wonderland, this gin-based concoction starts blue but changes colors once blended, and is accompanied with an edible tag that makes your tongue tingle.
This is a picture of Holstein’s restaurant right next to the Chandelier bar. It’s a burger place. The prices are good, but the portions are small. The avocado salad here is yummy.
The Cosmopolitan Pool
They have a pool lounge area that’s incredible and has good views.
A sitting area on the third floor of the Cosmopolitan. This is where many of their restaurants are. There were lots of kids, so it seemed to me to be a kid friendly area. Right near there is a tapas bar. It’s good and has paella too. It was a little pricey, except for the Sangria. It was priced right and delicious.
