One of the most iconic bars on the Las Vegas Strip has a whole new look, and if you haven’t experienced the renovated Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan, it’s time to return.
The crystal-adorned, three-tier lounge that stands as the centerpiece of the Cosmo’s casino was originally designed by the Rockwell Group and is constantly popping up on every travel magazine and website list of must-visit Vegas destinations. Changes to the ground floor were completed last year, including the addition of bartop video poker machines to complement the gaming experience at that level.
But it’s the second level that’s all the buzz right now. That Chandelier space, previously closed off and dark per typical bar-lounge design, is wide open and brighter, with a social area facing new restaurants Eggslut, Milk Bar and Momofuku and seating that has expanded from 15 to 70. Modern, minimal furniture has replaced bulkier pieces inside the lounge, adding a feeling of flexibility. And level 1.5—still a bit of a lesser-known, hidden-gem when the crowds take over the rest of the Chandelier during busy weekend nights—is wrapping up a similar cosmetic upgrade that includes USB ports and power outlets to keep the party well-charged.
Most importantly, the stellar cocktails and service remain intact. Because even a three-story chandelier needs a solid foundation.
