The Dorsey upscale cocktail lounge is officially headed to the Venetian, confirming the Eater Vegas reveal of the replacement for the shuttered Bourbon Room. Two high-profile New York nightlife names will be behind the "high-design" venture, allocated a $2.5 million budget just for construction costs.

The resort partnered with David Rabin to bring the sophisticated concept to the casino floor. His long resume is connected to a host of New York successes including LotusThe Lambs Club, The Skylark, JIMMY at the James and his most recent project, the celebrity hot-spot restaurant, Café Clover.

In Las Vegas, The Dorsey is described as a "memorable cocktail spot for the worldly, curious and engaged," featuring an "old-school service pedigree" and an atmosphere that may inspire a "‘devil-may-care’ sense of possibility."

The themed Bourbon Room was synonymous with high-energy scheduled performances and high volume tributes to ’80s hair-metal bands, but in stark contrast, The Dorsey promises "quality and discretion, allowing guests to enjoy relaxed conversation over a modern classic cocktail in an upbeat atmosphere."

Setting the mood with the drinks will be Sam Ross, a "craft cocktail" pioneer and the force behind the "neo-speakeasy" style of Manhattan’s Milk & Honey and Attaboy and the bar program at David Myers' former Los Angeles restaurants Comme Ça and Sona.

Design details will be anchored by a gold-and-black palette and work continues on the 4,415-square-foot lounge aiming for a December debut.
