Sam Ross and David Rabin of The Dorsey fame at the Venetian are back at it, this time planning to open Rosina, a cocktail lounge at the Palazzo. The resort says this bar, set to debut in December, is the first of three planned.
Ross, of New York City's Attaboy, plans to oversee Rosina. “There is a trailblazing cocktail culture unfolding at these resorts. With Rosina, your enjoyment is enhanced by attention to detail — in the drinks and the setting,” he says in a press statement.
The lounge features an Art Deco appearance decked out in black, champagne, rose gold and blush. Customers walk up to a solid brass and glass facade that resembles a jewelry box with brass inlayed flooring throughout that space next to the elevators at the Palazzo. Inside, crystal lights made by hand, tufted leather seats with the Rosina monogram and pink velvet chairs. Curtained banquette tables flank the bar. The entire place has room for about 65 customers.
Rosina plans to up the novelty factor with a champagne call button, which customers can use to top off their flute with the push of a button. The menu here features classic cocktails such as a Negroni, Manhattan and the Dark and Stormy.
The Dorsey opened last December on the Venetian side of the resort with cocktails such as the Penicillin with scotch, lemon, ginger, honey and an Islay float, which The New York Times named to its list of 11 essential drinks of the "modern cocktail revival."
