You take a seat in a tufted banquette in a dimly lit space designed for performances. Inventive cocktails and dishes like caviar tacos appear, and live entertainment begins. For travelers seeking a modern twist on the supper club, dining at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is a wildly memorable experience.

But no matter what your passion happens to be, you can find an outlet for it at this action-packed luxury resort in the center of The Las Vegas Strip. With more than 25 name-drop-worthy restaurants and seven iconic bars (each with its own unique vibe), The Cosmopolitan is open and ready to offer something for everyone: a foodie seeking the next great bite; a night owl whose day ends in the wee hours; and even someone looking for R&R.

Here’s how each of those travelers might spend their ideal day—and night—at The Cosmopolitan.

The Perfect Day for the Food and Drink Fan

For those who experience a place through what they eat and drink, The Cosmopolitan’s well-edited collection of restaurants—including those led by James Beard award-winning chefs like José Andrés and David Chang—along with its seven iconic cocktail bars, are destinations unto themselves. Reservations are encouraged. (And, why not make them through Rose, the resort’s “resident mischief-maker” and contactless digital concierge that’s available 24/7?)

For breakfast, head to Eggslut, the L.A. food truck-turned-restaurant that serves breakfast sandwiches, and order up the best-selling “Fairfax,” with scrambled eggs and cheese on a soft brioche bun. Lunch at Chang’s celebrated restaurant Momofuku, where you can order and split several small plates, such as pork belly buns and Shishito peppers with smoked salt and lime. For an afternoon pick-me-up, pop into District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. for a decadent donut and nitro cold brew.

Elevate your dining experience at Rose. Rabbit. Lie., the hotel’s supper club with a modern twist.

Dinner is fun all the way at the contemporary restaurant inspired by social clubs of the past, Rose. Rabbit. Lie. Whether you choose tamarind-glazed bone marrow or the award-winning caviar taco, the cuisine is as compelling as the immersive, live performances. For dessert, visit the outpost of Christina Tosi’s famed Milk Bar and order a slice of the Instagram-worthy, mega-confettied birthday cake. (Not your big day? We won’t tell.) By now, you’re probably ready for an after-dinner drink, which means stopping into Vesper, a see-and-be-seen cocktail bar. Order both a classic cocktail and a version reimagined by the bar and see which one you like best. Still awake? It’s time to check out The Barbershop, where you enter through a janitor’s closet to enjoy sweet, whiskey-inspired dreams.

Enjoy the open air of The Cosmopolitan’s unrivaled terrace rooms, with sweeping views of the Strip.

The Perfect Day for the Professional Relaxer

Can you really chill out amid Las Vegas’ buzzy, nonstop scene? If you’re staying at The Cosmopolitan, absolutely. From the moment you check into your spacious suite with an expansive terrace overlooking the city’s famous fountains, you’ll begin to unwind. Take a seat outside and watch the spectacular sunset over the Spring Mountains or slip into your Japanese soaking tub before going out for dinner; you could even stay in and order room service.

Soak up the sun and relax on a daybed or in a personal cabana, at the stylish Chelsea Pool.

The next morning, grab your swimsuit and flip-flops and head to the most relaxing of The Cosmopolitan’s collection of pools, The Chelsea pool, which is known for its secluded, stylish vibe. For the ultimate in privacy, you can even reserve your own daybed or cabana. By lunchtime, keep unwinding at Estiatorio Milos, the chic, Mediterranean restaurant designed by restauranteur Costas Spiliadis. With Las Vegas skyline views and a misting system to keep you cool and refreshed on the patio, the restaurant is known as much for its laid-back atmosphere as its fresh seafood served with a Greek accent.

Block out your afternoon for some self-care, like a workout in the 5,250-square-foot fitness center or a match on the tennis courts in The Chelsea Tower. Then grab a cold-pressed, organic juice at The Juice Standard—perhaps the “Bee Energized” juice, made with cucumber, carrot, apple, and beet—before heading to the Sahra Spa, Salon & Hammam for a therapeutic stone massage. Based on native Hawaiian healing principles, the treatment uses perfectly warmed stones to relieve tension and relax the body. Having achieved a deep level of relaxation from the outside in, your post-massage skin will glow, and so will you.

For dinner, stay in the comfort zone with a bowl of signature spaghetti tomato and basil at Scarpetta, where modern Italian cuisine is always seasonal and simply elegant.

Indulge in cuisine from around the globe with a leisurely brunch at the Wicked Spoon buffet.

The Perfect Day for the Nightlife Maven

Late-night fans can find plenty of fun at The Cosmopolitan. Begin your day slowly with a leisurely brunch at Wicked Spoon buffet, where servers dish up your choices for you and the drinks are bottomless. If you’re still breakfasting, the buffet features traditional eggs Benedict and Liege waffles with strawberry compote; if you’re in a lunch mood, indulge in succulent charred Korean short ribs with kalbi glaze, chipotle-spiced ceviche, and tandoori roasted chicken. After your last mimosa, hit Boulevard Pool to lounge and soak up the rays, upbeat music, and social vibes in the space designed for a communal atmosphere. You won’t have to travel far for lunch at Overlook Grill, an open-air dining spot with a view of Boulevard Pool. The relaxed setting serves casual food to match, like the signature fish tacos with smoked jalapeño aioli and a Cuban sandwich stuffed full of mouthwatering, slow-roasted pork.

Explore The Chandelier’s dazzling three-story lounge with a handcrafted cocktail.

Later for dinner, amp up the energy with live entertainment at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. that transports you to a modern supper club while you dine, or head to STK, the flirty steakhouse with a sexy interior and buzzy cocktail scene. Stay at the bar and order the signature Wagyu Beef Lil’ Burgs or slip into a stylish, curved banquette. Afterwards, try your luck in the glamourous casino where you can play classic table games such as blackjack, roulette, and craps, or try your hand at video poker in the elegant, high-limit slot lounge. Celebrate your winnings with a handcrafted cocktail surrounded by sparkles at The Chandelier, a three-story lounge encased in millions of crystals that make up beaded curtains of light. And catch live bands at The Barbershop to round out the evening.

Grab a late-night snack at The Henry; its signature brioche French toast will transport you directly to dreamland. The next day, before you hit the repeat button, recharge and refresh with a deep hydrating and anti-aging oxygen facial and at Sahra Spa, Salon & Hamman. Now, go forth and conquer once more.
