Rí Rá Irish Pub coming to Mandalay

A new Irish pub will be opening on the Las Vegas Strip. Rí Rá Irish Pub is scheduled to open in March 2011 and will be located at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place.

A key component of the restaurant will be a 160 year old, eight foot tall, 500 pound statue of St. Patrick that is currently being shipped over from Ireland.

The pub will also feature live music and a comprehensive drink list. For more information and updates about the new bar, check out Rí Rá Irish Pub on Facebook.

Cosmopolitan Video Room Review

I just found this video room review of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on YouTube. The video does a pretty good job of showing off one of the wraparound suites at the hotel.

When The Cosmopolitan was originally conceived, a great portion of the units were intended to be sold a condos. From this video it's clear that much of that condo influence remained in the design of the suites.

It's pretty rare in a Vegas hotel room to get a full sized fridge, kitchen and washer and dryer (not pictured in this video, but included in most of the suites). These added amenities will no doubt come in handy to Cosmo guests.
