2012 will mark the end of the reign of Hard Rock Casino as the "hip and Trendy" hang-out for the young, beautiful people in Vegas. The Cosmo has officially smashed the competition, becoming the new "King of the Kids". Hard Rocks title lasted well over a decade, but from what I saw on my last three trips to Vegas, the tides have turned. The place was packed on the weekend with the L.A. looks crowd, driving in from California, spending large quantities of Daddys cash. With the entertainment offered, it appears the Cosmo is here to stay.
As far as the rest of the casino, rooms are gorgeous with walk out balconies. Table limits are high, even for the strip (except Cesars) but the scenery is nice. You have to check this place out when in Vegas. You will definately remember it!
I love the atmosphere of the casino, the "lifestyle" that breeds in the casino floor, and the staff are super-friendly! There are a lot of table games and bars, though wish there was more choices of slot machines to play (most that are there are over 3 to 7 yrs old). The buffet Wicked Spoon is sympathetically different from most others you will see, but great nonetheless. The parking underground is a complication for most, but because the casino is in the middle of the action walking from another casino is sometimes better.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is probably the newest Las Vegas casino hotel. On the casino floor there is a huge crystal chandelier that is over 2 stories high. This hotel also has marquee nightclub which is supposedly one of the hottest clubs right now.
Now I've got to say I'm not usually a fan of the big mega-resorts on the vegas strip, but this is the best all around casino I've ever been to. Not only is it absolutely gorgeous, but the customer service is spectacular and on top of that they actually have pretty good video poker for a strip casino.
They lowered their video poker pay tables since I was there last. They did have Liberace's car, which I took a picture of. A beautiful place to play and be. They do have a special lunch bargain at their Greek eating establishment. I forget the name.
Their pool scene in the summer looks pretty dynamic.
