Best Place for a Best Arthouse Coffee Shop

Starbucks in the Cosmopolitan

For those who say that Las Vegas lacks the cultural cachet of a major metropolitan city, we say, “Um, have you seen our Starbucks lately?” Specifically, the Starbucks in the Cosmopolitan, which boasts French artist and photographer Georges Rousse’s first-ever permanent public art installation. Rousse—a multigenre artist who blurs the lines between photography, painting, sculpture and architecture—is known for his elaborate installations that transform our relationship with space and time. His piece at Starbucks, with its bold primary colors and playful geometric shapes, looks like a Rubik’s cube that was dreamed up by a surrealist. It’s just like how we take our latte—grandé, with art.
