|Wow, what a day I had! The Cosmopolitan is all that it has promised and more. Just when you think that Las Vegas cannot top the last mega-resort, they do it. I am still in awe of City Center. But I am really in love with The Cosmopolitan...much more of a boutique resort, very unique in it's shops and restaurants, it is smaller than I would have thought...but opulent beyond belief. I heard that it cost 4 billion, when compared to City Center, almost 3 times the size, that cost 8 billion ~ well, every single little detail is superb.|
An A+ rating from moi if you are planning a trip here and wanting to be removed from the hustle and bustle of the Strip circus.
|These stunning flowers are at the entrance to Jean Philippe's Patisserie ( at Aria) where my girlfriend and I started the day with chocolate croissants and coffee...They are made entirely of chocolate! Absolutely exquisite ~|
|One of his petit cakes, 6 inches tall... divine!|
|A sculpture at one of the entrances to Aria ~ We started our day here as we wanted to run into Assouline ...|
|You know it is good when the underground parking looks like this...Cosmo here we come!|
|My girlfriend had fabulous pictures that she took with her i phone, but I can't figure out how to get them on here :( |
So you get my shots...
|We took so many pictures!|
|A little settee to dial your concierge...|
|Oh! The Vesper Bar, named for the original Bond girl Vesper Lynd of "Casino Royale"|
Pictures do not do it justice, it is stunning...
|The Cosmopolitan's crown jewel...a three story chandelier, the largest in North America, is made of two million crystals ~ it has a different bar ensconced inside of it on all three levels.|
|Jose Andres' restaurant "China Poblano," a fusion of mexican and chinese cuisines. It looked even cooler inside.|
|Out of London, and LA, first time in Las Vegas...|
|My vote for the best window display ~|
|To die for! Hundreds of antique sewing machines ~ So incredible, and I love the shopping inside too!|
|Even the little sundry shops are boutique-y and filled with fabulous hard to find items...|
|The interior of "Skins 62", their first shop in the US. Love the mirrors on the wall...|
|Every little detail, like I said ~ Wow!|
We had an incredible lunch at Scott Conant's D.O.C.G. enoteca ~
