360 Vegas Review: Chandelier Bar @Cosmopolitan Spring 2012

Chandelier Bar at Cosmopolitan is a 3 level cocktail bar that is
housed in a 2 million beaded chandelier that sets a new standard in striking
elegance. Under the direction of award winning mixologist Meriena Mercer, each
level is subtly different in style and drink offerings.

  • Level 1 - A high end casino bar that is the centre of the floors
  • Level 2 - A great place for a quiet drink and the floor dedicated to
    the speciality cocktails that the staff are famous for. This is the floor to
    visit if you are an experienced cocktail drinker
  • Level 3 - A more relaxed area than the middle floor, with views out
    to the surrounding stores. This level is designed with a more feminine touch in
Levels 2 and 3 are a great option for those who want a quiet drink
without the constant smell of cigarette smoke as they are non-smoking. 

Location - Center of the Cosmopolitan Casino and accessible from level 1 & 2
  • Hours of Operation
    • Level 1 - Daily, 24 hours a day
    • Level 1.5 - Daily, 4pm - 4am
    • Level 2 - 11am - 11pm
Theme - A giant chandelier with DJs and live bands performing at level 1

  • Average price
    • Beer & Wine $7-10
    • Cocktails $10-15
Happy Hours - None

Twitpic of the week

This week’s winner is @czabarte for a stunning picture of Vegas past, specifically Fremont Street in the late 50s or early 60s; at least that is my best guess.  This is pre-Fremont St Experience, during the day and it is beautiful.  The picture inspired some spirited conversation among some of our listeners who thought the Fremont strip would be better served if they tore down the Fremont St Experience in favor of restoring it to its former beauty.  This photo was taken by Golden Gate at the far west of Fremont St looking east.  You can see part of Golden Gates street signage as well as part of the Las Vegas Club, Fortune Club and their large slot marquee, silver palace the Mint, the Pioneer club, Binion’s and Fremont tower over them all.  Cars line the Fremont Strip and Vegas Vic has on his original yellow-checkered shirt.  It’s a great picture of a time and place I can only visit in my dreams.
