A woman stands on a platform wearing only heels and a black body suit, as an artist with scissors nips away at the form-fitting Lycra. It’s like watching Edward Scissorhands—in Vegas. The result is a wearable, barely-there mosaic, something you’d only see at the Cosmopolitan’s restaurant-meets-nightclub hybrid, STK. And it’s just one among many over-the-top elements at STK’s Love Affair, a raucous celebration of five sexy, successful years on the Strip.

From innovative concepts like the new Sunday Brunch Club to the blend of laid-back atmosphere with in-house DJs, the contemporary steakhouse is so obviously Las Vegas it’s a wonder we’ve only had it for half a decade.

Executive chef Stephen Hopcraft has continuously improved on a refined menu that brings culinary sophistication to the fashionable vibe. The Love Affair showcased favorite dishes, from the shellfish platter loaded with succulent, salty oysters on the half shell and juicy ceviche with pickled peppers to the tender, delicately seasoned cuts of beef that anchor STK’s mouth-watering offerings.

From the dim scarlet lighting that cascaded across the restaurant and the sultry, lingerie-clad performers to the sounds of DJs M!KEATTACK and Crykit spinning Kid Cudi and Jay Z, STK’s anniversary pushed the envelope from the moment guests walked in. It’s one thing for a steakhouse to nail a filet mignon, but STK goes above and beyond, melding nightlife and gourmet dining into one unforgettable package. No matter what you’re celebrating, it’s the kind of spot that will have you dreaming up new excuses to return.
