There's no shortage of sparkly light fixtures in Las Vegas, but The Cosmopolitan features one of the biggest. A three-story chandelier houses a unique lounge experience on each level: high-energy hot spot, sophisticated cocktail haven and inviting lounge.
Conceived and designed by Rockwell Group, The Chandelier Bar combines more than 2 million crystals within one three-story space connected by a glass spiral staircase. “We wanted The Chandelier Bar to become the iconic center of this resort, so we designed it as a larger-than-life lounge and bar where people would feel that they were inside a fantastical chandelier,” said David Rockwell, founder and chief executive officer of Rockwell Group.
The most popular item served at The Chandelier is the Verbena cocktail, incorporating tequila, yuzu sour, lemon verbena leaves and ginger syrup, garnished with a Szechuan button flower that is meant to heighten flavor.
The bar attracts people from near and far, including Las Vegas native Brandon Flowers of The Killers, who performed there solo in 2010.
