(AP) - OLD IS NEW: Las Vegas appears to have a winner when it comes to hyper-specific themes. The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas has opened a concert venue intended to evoke a 1930s-era theater dropped into an Eastern European glass factory.
CIRCUSES: The event space, called the Chelsea, features velvet and leather lounge chairs, a striking art deco chandelier, and the exposed-filament light bulbs that have recently become a Sin City craze.
SMALL VENUE: The Cosmopolitan is touting the gold and bronze-hued 3,000-capacity theater as an "avant garde" venue where fans can get an up-close look at stars that usually play arenas. Officials say the worst seat in the house is 100 feet from the stage.
