The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas has opened a new concert venue which has been designed upon the theme of a 1930s-era theater dropped into an Eastern European glass factory.
The new venue will have a grand opening at the end of the month featuring a performance by Bruno Mars, however, it has already opened its doors and over the weekend it hosted an IBM meeting.The new venue has been christened the Chelsea and it features velvet and leather lounge chairs, an art deco chandelier and the exposed filament light bulbs that seem to have become incredibly popular around Las Vegas.
The Cosmopolitan has described the 3,000-capactiy theater as an “avant-garde” venue where fans can get an up-close look at stars that usually play arenas.
The Chief Marketing Officer, Lisa Marchese, said that the worst seat in the house is 100 feet from the stage.
The designers of the new venue wanted to evoke a glass factory with caged light fixtures, antiqued mirrors, and deep basins in the toilets. There is also a set of three vintage stage backdrops hanging from thick ropes above the grand staircase and more ropes hang above the balcony like Christmas lights.
