If you want to know what went down at Party Rock Monday, just listen to the first few verses of LMFAO’s “I Don’t Wanna Be”: “When I walk in the club, the people show me love ... I get looks from the ladies, daps from the dudes.” Yep, all of that definitely happened. And DJ Redfoo (of LMFAO) was dressed like it was the ’80s, though I couldn’t see if he had checkered shoes.
The DJ’s Party Rock concept delivered exactly what the name implies: a rockin’ party. Marquee’s main room was packed to the brim with no-lens-glasses-wearing, Red Bull-vodka-drinking party people. The club’s tables were decked out with inflatable zebras and guitars, foam horns and glowsticks galore. After Party Rock-approved DJ Air spun a superior opening set, Redfoo took to the tables with mega-hit “I’m in Miami, Bitch,” supplying the vocals himself. Soon the Party Rock Crew hopped on the go-go boxes to hype up the crowd, offering vodka shots to those in reach. Party Rock-themed go-gos and trippy, hallucinogenic visuals completed the event—an experience DJ Redfoo describes as “a way of celebrating life.”
So how exactly does one prepare to celebrate life Party Rock-style? Here are a few vital items you’ll want to invest in if you plan to roll with Redfoo and crew:

1. Eyewear with no lenses, preferably bedazzled, patterned or striped.
2. Some type of brilliantly colored pants; purple denim works just fine.
3. Very large jewelry—think “bling.”
4. Pleather. ’nuff said.
Think ’80s. I found the four essentials at Buffalo Exchange, Hot Topic, Ross and Savers.
So why should you add to your closet and opt for the all-out Party Rock experience? DJ Redfoo explains: “You can dress party animal and ... kind of let your freak out. You’re going to feel comfortable dancing and getting crazy.”
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
