How We Started
Cosmo's was founded in 2000 by brother & sister, Gerald Stogsdill & Debra Peña. They aimed for a retrograde style bar with a weird & different concept. Cosmo's is known for the dirty martini's & tasty pizza but, Jackson Tran has incorporated his family's authentic Vietnamese food to spice up the menu. Cosmo's classic cocktails & kitchen will surprise you! Who would have known, Pizza & Pho make the perfect combo?
Who We Are
Debra Peña & Gerald Stogsdill
"My brother Gerald, and I always wanted to own a retro dive bar! We thought it was an interesting neat idea to keep things old school in the Lakewood area. Most bars were going for a futuristic & modern look, but we wanted something eccentric, classy with a hipster vibe. Our funky vintage 70's furniture & our groovy lights take us back to how we partied in 1969!"
