Two words: blackjack cabanas...
Welcome to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a 50-story showstopper of a hotel and pioneer of the city’s first casino cabana, taking reservations now for its December debut.
This is going to be big. We mean that literally: 3,000 rooms, a gaming floor the size of two football fields, three pools, 374 showgirls, six pit bosses named Ralph and one ice sculpture of Bugsy Siegel. (Note: some figures may be estimates.)
Should you crave something more—like something to eat—you’ll head to the third floor for a massive restaurant row, including a spot from José Andrés, a Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and a Vegas incarnation of Scott Conant’s Scarpetta. Oh, and the Strip’s first Greek spot since Jimmy the Greek went to that great casino in the sky.
But the focus is right where it should be: on the sweet art of playing games of chance. Specifically, at the front of the casino, where you’ll find seven cabanas devoted to secluded gaming. Book one and you’ll get a curtained-off blackjack table of your own, complete with plush couches, flat-screens and room for 15 like-minded card players. (Recommended watching: Casino, obviously.)
Basically, it’s like having your own casino within a casino, so feel free to invite any passing card sharks who meet your rigorous standards.
Make that 373 showgirls.
