The team behind Holsteins’ innovative cocktail menu went through a few cereals before finding the perfect choice for their Cereal Bowl Bamboozled Shake ($11). Wheaties and Tony the Tiger, please step aside. The Cap’n is back and better than ever.
Since its introduction in 1963, Cap’n Crunch has been sweetening the milk of millions (perhaps even billions) of bowls. Mingling at times with peanut butter or berries, it’s a cereal that continues to reinvent itself. And now it can claim fame as the star of Vegas’ breakfast of champions at the swanky Cosmopolitan. The inspiration behind all of Holsteins’ shakes is taking the everyday and making something fun and playful. The Cereal Bowl does just that. A vanilla aroma meets creamy sweet satisfaction and a brown sugar buttery crunch. Well played, Cap’n.

1 oz. vanilla vodka

milk, as needed to get desired consistency
whipped cream (for garnish)
Method: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and Cap’n Crunch.
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.
