With world-class electronica artists, laser lights, and a ceiling that rains confetti, a night at Marquee feels like a New Year’s Party that never ends, a midnight mass in “an entertainment sanctuary” designed to host Las Vegas’ most important VIPs and most extravagant events.
Owned and operated by the Tao Group, Marquee is the New York club’s (of the same name) western counterpart, which opened on New Year’s Eve 2011 and has since proved its staying power at the ever-popular Cosmopolitan.
The multilevel club itself spans 60,000 monumental square feet and is divided into three separate rooms, offering different experiences to match any room or taste. All are designed by the Rockwell Group, who also did most of the designs of its hosting hotel, so patrons can expect the same purple, pink, and crystal motif throughout the club.
The main room surrounds a forty-foot DJ booth and projector screen programmed to delight drinkers and dancers with smoke, visual effects, and other pyrotechnics that match the beats of a number of world famous DJs. Private booths allow guests to sit and converse without being bumped and grinded on by overeager dancers.
With several bars located throughout the room, finding a drink without paying for bottle service is rarely a problem—provided you are willing to wade through the sea of club-goers.
For the sophisticated intellectual in all of us, Marquee features the Library, which is decked out like a mid-twentieth century man cave, featuring floor-to-ceiling woodwork, a fireplace, billiard tables, and volumes chronicling the history of Las Vegas.
Downstairs from the main room is the chic Boombox, a more intimate setting favored by many celebrity guests, such as Jay-Z, Kanye, Beyonce, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
And beyond all this lies a 22,000-square-foot multilevel daytime entertainment complex boasting two pools, trendy DJs, brightly-colored daybeds, private cabanas, and three-story bungalows with private rooftop pools—all designed to make your Marquee experience a memorable sun-up to sundown affair.
