LAS VEGAS DESIGN GUIDE
WHERE TO STAY
THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS
For a multi-sensory stay in Vegas, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is the perfect spot to enjoy the city to the fullest. The collaboration with Tihany Design, Richmond International, and Daun Curry Design Studio has created this luxury resort, ready to cater to every whim.
Enjoy the amazing view from the suites and be ready to spend some time appreciating the many amenities that the resort offers to its guests. You can’t miss the three-story Chandelier Lounge, where shimmering beaded curtains of light create a scenography wonder, resulting in an out-of-this-world stay, that continues in the casino where floor-to-ceiling glass work lets you experience the traditional games with a glamorous view.
Let yourself be stunned by the art collection spreading through the whole resort, from the display to the lobby’s columns – commissioned art from famous artists such as Sarah Rara, Yorgo Alexopoulos, and Yoko Ono – to the murals, created by Shepard Fairey, Curtis Kulig and RETNA, adorning the subterranean parking garage.
If the iconic fountains are just the preview for the leisure setting that the Bellagio offers, you can only imagine the delights that await your stay at the luxury resort. After a mesmerizing show of choreographed lights, music and water – always different no matter how many times you see it! – go inside and enjoy the luxurious setting and amenities.
The suites let you choose between views of Las Vegas valley and the scenographic fountains providing you the best the hotel can offer, while choosing different venues for your dinner, from Le Cirque, whose bold and colorful setting had been designed by Adam D. Tihany and offering a contemporary French cuisine, to the Spanish and French influence of Chef Julian Serrano at Picasso, an award-winning location featuring real Picassos. Concluding the day is the best here at Bellagio, where you can find some of the best highest-stakes poker games of the city.
WHERE TO EAT
SCOTCH 80 PRIME
Located at the Palms Casino Resort, Scotch 80 Prime is the best location to enjoy an artistic dinner accompanied by original Basquiats and Warhols. Earthy tones and wood texture had been chosen to give the specific atmosphere to chef Barry Dakake’s new steakhouse, while chef Mark Purdy will make your toes curl with his perfectly-cooked Kobe beef. Enjoy our choice from Las Vegas Design Guide!
United States, Korea, and Japan had been the main influences for chef David Chang’s cuisine. Located at the Cosmopolitan, Momofuku – the first on the West Coast – was designed by The DesignAgency, trying to maintain its original spirit while adding a little Las Vegas touch to its core. Even here arts will delight your dinner with artist David Choe’s work.
WHAT TO DO
As a club, Omnia surely can be included in the top choices: having been designed by Rockwell Group, it sports the world-famous chandelier, a 22,000-pound kinetic wonder capable of donating the most amazing club experience with its eight concentric rings and thousands of LED strips and lights. Internationally acclaimed guests are always invited to create memorable shows for its guests.
KEEP MEMORY ALIVE – LOU RUVO CENTER FOR BRAIN HEALTH
Designed by world-famous architect Frank Gehry, it opened in 2010 as the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health (LRCBH), a national research center for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington ‘s Diseases, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and other diseases. The grandiosity of the façade is in its surrealistic proprieties, with a normal operating building from one side and The Life Activity Center, an event space with the characteristic twisted shape – emphasized by LED lights – a tribute to the memory and its challenges (profits from LAC are used as additional funding for the center).
