Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (Cosmo) set an official opening date for December of 2010. Kinda.
The CEO of the new $3.9 billion Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas casino says it will open in mid-December with about one-third of its rooms delayed until July 2011.
The Cosmo will open in December, but will keep some of its rooms closed. CityCenter properties opened similarly. All of this room capacity that goes unfilled should keep prices in check for a while. So, Cosmo, thank you for opening.
You may be familiar with the Cosmo, but not aware that it exists. It’s nestled between CityCenter and Bellagio and surrounding the Jockey Club. You can see the location on the awesome Vegas Today and Tomorrow map.
Because of location and look it can easily be confused for part of CityCenter. The Cosmo website has very little information, but everything I’ve read makes it seem as if it will have an urban south beach feel to it with multiple restaurants, clubs, etc. with a fancy beach club in the air between both towers of the hotel.
I walked by the Cosmo on the way to CityCenter in December and it looked like it was almost ready to open. I’ll check it out. With it’s proximity to the strip, hopefully it will be inviting to me.
