At 8 p.m. Pacific Standard Time Wednesday night, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will open in grand style with a first-look party for invited guests, prior to the traditional first bet right before doors open.
At 11 p.m. local time, Vegas native and Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers will perform for the resort's first guests in a concert that will be broadcast live on the property's 65-foot tall LED-display marquee.
Earlier Wednesday, John Unwin, Cosmopolitan CEO, took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony inside the resort's Boulevard Casino, joined by fellow members of the hotel's executive leadership, alongside the resort's design, architecture and construction team.
The property, which announced its opening in May, started rolling out details in June. The Cosmopolitan showed off its boutique collection, Marriot Autograph Collection membership, artwork and residential-style rooms before making its official debut at Luxury Travel Expo.
Located between CityCenter and the Bellagio, The Cosmopolitan has 2,995 rooms including private terraces and designs by interior architects David Rockwell, Jeffrey Beers, Adam D. Tihany and the Friedmutter Group. Features include new membership offerings, three pools, the 100,000-square-foot casino, and Sahra Spa & Hammam, alongside Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub and 150,000 square feet of convention and meeting space. The property's nine restaurants include the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill by Bruce and Eric Bromberg; Comme Ça by Los Angeles chef David Myers; burger joint Holsteins from Block 16 Hospitality; Scarpetta by award-winning chef Scott Conant; and steakhouse STK from The ONE Group.
