The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and newly formed Clique Hospitality founded by Andy Masi have partnered to bring Clique, an avant-garde lounge concept, to the Strip casino resort this winter.
Located in the heart of the Cosmopolitan, the hip and swanky cocktail lounge will add another outlet to the bar collection. Clique will serve as an escape from the outside world, offering artisanal cocktails and house-made mixers.
Clique, in the Book & Stage area, will feature musical stylings and relaxation in an environment designed by Alessandro Munge of Studio Munge. Clique will be adorned with dark wood, couches and posh finishing touches.
Mixology will take center stage as Clique reinvents the lounge experience with tableside mixology. Aside from classic drinks, Clique will offer a seasonal cocktail menu, juices and garnishes.
Guests also can enjoy shared plates and bites, including street tacos, sliders and salads, from award-winning chef Brian Massie (Hearthstone at Red Rock Resort and Stack at the Mirage).
“We are extremely thrilled to partner with the Cosmopolitan on this venture,” Clique Hospitality founder Andy Masi said in a news release this morning. “I think this is a concept that Las Vegas has been waiting for.”
Upon its arrival, Clique will join the Cosmopolitan’s collection of bars that now includes the Chandelier, Bond and Vesper Bar.
Masi, the Light Group founder and former CEO, founded Clique Hospitality, along with his partners Massie and Shane Monaco. Clique has eight restaurants and lounges in the pipeline in Nevada and California.

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.
