Because history is fun, the Cosmo's new proprietor teamed up with an actual historian to supervise a complete restoration of the hotel's 1869 appearance, including an eating- & drinking-minded 1st floor now impressively outfitted with: period-dressed staff, hand-painted faux-wood doors (a sign of affluence!), overhangs painted in period-rare blue paint, a front saloon boasting a circa-1850 bar (reclaimed from a Tombstone hotel) and an 1855 half-grand piano, and a back bar in what was originally the general store (sadly you'll still have to go elsewhere for your cocaine tinctures).
