As Las Vegas' newest home for electronic dance music, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan is focused on what makes people move. With a resident DJ roster that includes America's Best DJ Kaskade, Erick Morillo, ATB, Chucki, Cosmic Gate, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz and more bumping beats through a state-of-the-art Funktion One soundsystem, Marquee has reinvented nightlife since opening on New Year's Eve 2011. From custom visuals designed by V Squared Labs with a live VJ controlling content on a 40-foot LED wall, choreographed costumed performers courtesy of artistic director Genvieve Cleary, and an overall total immersion experience wows clubgoers weekly admidst the David Rockwell designed space. Multiple environments await at Marquee, from the aforementioned main room to the intimate lower level Boom Box room complete with a wall of retro stereos. Patrons also can experience the semi-secret Library room with a focus on craft cocktails, a billards table and fireplace, all surrounded by literature hand-picked by the Strand Bookstore in New York. Even celebrity guests and performers have stopped by, including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Diddy, Kim Kardashian, Gerard Butler, Stone Temple Pilots, Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Ice T and Coco, 50 Cent, Cameron Diaz, Travis Barker, Mariah Carey and Dr. Dre. And for partying al fresco, Marquee's Dayclub also doubled as an extension of the main room for an open air party place year around.
