LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas has opened the Strip's newest event space. It's a concert venue intended to evoke a 1930s-era theater dropped into an Eastern European glass factory.
The space will celebrate a grand opening just before the new year with a performance by pop star Bruno Mars. It technically opened its doors on Sunday, hosting an IBM meeting.
The event space, called the Chelsea, features velvet and leather lounge chairs, a striking art deco chandelier, and the exposed-filament light bulbs that have recently become a Sin City craze.
The Cosmopolitan is touting the gold and bronze-hued 3,000-capacity theater as an "avant garde" venue where fans can get an up-close look at stars who usually play arenas.
