Singer Bruno Mars feels like he’s locked out of heaven, but he certainly wasn’t locked out of the brand-new music venue the Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Sunday night.

The Chelsea and Mars made their debut at the third-floor space, and photographer Denise Truscello of WireImage was onsite for a photo gallery.

This journalist plans to be at Mars’ New Year’s Eve performance Tuesday night, so check back later in the week for a report of the concert at the gorgeous, new multi-purpose venue that reminds of a more elegant version of the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Mars’ extended engagement at the Chelsea is set for Feb. 15-16, May 23-24 and Aug. 22-23. The Chelsea’s lineup also includes Eric Church and Childish Gambino.

Mars, born Peter Gene Hernandez in Honolulu and crooner of No. 1 hits “Just the Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and “When I Was Your Man,” is the Super Bowl XLVIII (48) Halftime Show headliner at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford N.J., on Sunday, Feb. 2.
