    Best Store for Your Skin

    Don't let its Strip location deter you (just take Harmon Avenue right to the Cosmo's parking garage), Skins 6|2 is locally owned and is the only beauty boutique of its kind in the United States. Featuring familiar favorites such as Deborah Lippmann nail polish and TokyoMilk fragrances, the best part of this beauty spot is that it also features a plethora of brands you've never heard of and that are normally only available online.

    Best DJ Booth

    Las Vegas has a number of rad DJ booths. But what makes Marquee the best is its sum of its audio-visual parts: a pulsating 40-foot LED wall, an integrated stage that turns go-go’s into choreographed dancers while face-melting subwoofers tickle your skin as you inch closer. The icing on the cake? The booth is raised just enough to offer celebrity-DJ-demigod proximity and easy viewing from most angles. Forget Las Vegas—this is one of the most epic DJ booths in nightlife, period.

    Best Go-Go Dancers

    It’s so much more than merely hiring models and teaching them a few moves. Sure, hotness is a prerequisite. But this is about beauty and creativity. And Marquee just gets it. Cosmopolitan creative director Gen Cleary uses the club’s stage to help “break the cliché of what a go-go dancer is and how to elevate it.” Cleary works with Hakkasan and XS, too, and both have great go-go’s, but we’re partial to Marquee’s stage that sits perched atop the DJ booth.

    Dive into Dive-In Mondays at the Boulevard Pool

    By Sam Glaser

    “Just follow the kids,” we’re instructed as my friends and I enter the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool for the Dive-In Mondays movie night. Really? I wonder as I fight an unwanted tinge of smugness. The kids? Ok, Little Giants is the 7:30 p.m. show, so of course the demographic might skew young. But would it ultimately ruin our experience? Quite the contrary, the event would prove to make us feel young, not feel outnumbered by the youngsters.

  • The Ringleader

    By Sam Glaser

    When Paul Oakenfold’s Perfecto at Rain became a renowned residency, his signature sound and persona were only a part of the appeal. Behind the literal and figurative curtain was a dancer-turned-show producer who would hugely impact the visual landscape of Las Vegas nightlife. At that time, Gen Cleary’s dance/production company Belluscious had been gaining traction with its corporate division, Stage Spectacle, providing clients such as Chanel, Mercedes-Benz and McDonald’s a more empowering, commercial brand of female glamor inspired by 1930s- and 1940s-era musicals.
