Two new cocktail lounges head to the Palazzo, with one already opening and another on the way. First up, Electra Cocktail Club, a lounge the resort says “represents the evolution of nightlife in Las Vegas” along with the very romantic Rosina and the East Coast savvy Dorsey.
Electra plans to sit on the casino floor, closer to the check-in desk. Sam Ross, the barman behind The Dorsey and Rosina cocktail menus, creates the list here, with rums, Caribbean agricoles, mezcal, and tropical cocktails taking center stage.
Future drinks at this lounge that opens in early September include the Penichillin, a frozen play on The Dorsey’s popular Penicillin with lemon, ginger, honey, and smoky Scotch; a frozen peach daiquiri, made with white rum, rhum agricole, peach, and lime; the Trouble Maker with vodka, sweet vermouth, cucumber, lemon, and strawberry; the Pina Verde with Green Chartreuse, pineapple, lime, coconut, and a dash of cream; and the Age of Aquarius, with mezcal, passionfruit, lime, honey, and Campari.
The 127-seat bar designed by Simeone Deary Design Group features a piece of art made with a video display that uses 70 million pixels and more than one billion colors, changing throughout the night. Brass, granite, etched metals, custom wall coverings, and a chandelier with more than 1,200 lights decorate the space that includes leather sofas with metal trim and brass high top tables surrounding a 40-foot-long Carrara stone mosaic and black absolute stone bar.
Drinkers might clamor for the VIP corner banquette surrounded what’s dubbed “a stack of 10 bracelets.” These 14-foot circles come in metal finishes ranging from brass to rose gold with several sparkling inside and out. On the ceiling, a concave mirror suspended with gold bands with faceted backlit crystals runs around the entire parameter.
The playlist includes songs from artists such as David Bowie, N.E.R.D., Cardi B, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, G-Eazy, The Talking Heads, Drake, Cage The Elephant, Portugal. The Man, The Rolling Stones, and more.
Once open, customers can stop by from 3 p.m. until 4 a.m.
Already open, Bar Luca, a 24-hour bar in the center of the casino floor with bar gaming, beers, wines, champagne, and cocktails such as The Tempest made with Empress, Fever-Tree elderflower tonic, and grapefruit, or the Kiss Me Chiara made with Belvedere, coconut lychee, lime, pineapple, and Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut. The best-kept secret? The potato chips made in small batches.
