Come mid-May, the Palms introduces the city to two new nightlife venues from Clique Hospitality, and now both venues have a head honcho ready to stir up the cocktails. Mixologist Eric Hobbie leads the charge at Apex Social Club and Camden Cocktail Lounge.

Apex Social Club takes over the former home of Ghostbar spanning 8,000 square feet with its rooftop views of Las Vegas, while Camden Cocktail Lounge sits on the casino level with cocktails galore.

Hobbie’s resume includes stints with chefs such as Rick Moonen, Charlie Trotter, now disgraced Mario Batali, and Giada De Laurentiis, plus he helped open venues such as Jet at the Mirage, Playboy Club at the Palms, and Club Quo in Manhattan. Hobbie even work under Sam Ross for the opening of The Dorsey at the Venetian.
