Las Vegas may be a city full of secrets (after all, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas), but one sleek attraction is just too cool to stay hidden in the shadows. And it has nothing to do with gambling.

Tucked away inside the Cosmopolitan, sits a brand new bar and barbershop concept called, what else, The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails.

During the day, Town & Country reported, the space, which opened its doors on March 25, is home to a three-chair barbershop, staffed by New York master barber Jose Sosa. Walk-ins are welcome though we’d recommend making an appointment beforehand as this place will undoubtedly become overwhelmingly popular fast.

At the shop, guests can get a classic cut, a beard trim or straight razor shave. With each treatment guests will also get the chance to sip on a complimentary selection of whiskey and beer.

But, once the sun goes down, the entire space transforms into a speakeasy harkening back to a different era of Las Vegas nightlife.

To get to the speakeasy one must enter through the door marked “Janitor.” Inside, Town & Country explained, guests will be greeted with a vintage 1800’s mahogany bar from Kentucky, which serves up a small but efficient list of whiskey and bourbon cocktails along with a few other craft liquors, beer and wine.

“We have a relatively small cocktail selection, but we wanted to focus on our spirit selection, so the menu includes more scotch, whiskey and bourbons,” Ryan Labbe, from Clique Hospitality, who is overseeing the project, shared with Maxim. “The whiskey selection is vast, about four pages long just on whiskey from all around the world.”

After grabbing a drink guests can kick back and relax in one of the space’s plush leather chairs or couches and enjoy the entertainment. At the speakeasy, an ever changing list of bands and DJs will be on hand, though, on Tuesdays guests will do the entertaining as at karaoke night.

So when you need a cut, a cocktail, or a break from the crowds, try sneaking into The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails. Just try to keep the speakeasy a secret from here on out.
