Francesco Lafranconi, the former executive director of mixology and spirits education at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, recently debuted a luxury cocktail lounge in the Fantasy Tower of the Palms dubbed Mr. Coco. Customers who take the elevator up to the third floor can order cocktails and bites while enjoying art and live entertainment.

More than 30 vermouths, and quinine-based and fortified wines make the menu of the lounge named the retreat for Lafranconi’s dog.

Customers receive a cocktail amuse bouche before they even step food in the elevator.

Chef Steve Benjamin, who left L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon at the MGM Grand in 2017, and currently oversees the food and beverage at the Waldorf Astoria in Los Angeles created the menu that include caviar served table side. Bites include Gruyere cheese puffs, hamachi and salmon with crispy rice, and smoked salmon with a baguette with dill.

Savory dishes include an eggplant caviar confit with pita, cumin seeds, raz el hanout and tomatoes coulis; a charcuterie and cheese platter; one ounce of Osetra caviar for $145; foie gras torchon; and the signature dish, chilled capellini pasta.

Mr. Coco, Palms, 4321 W. Flamingo Road, 702-944-5960. Open daily from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
