The Palazzo renaissance continues with an exhilarating new bar serving
hand-crafted cocktails in a high-energy environment
LAS VEGAS (July 31, 2018) – The Palazzo® Las Vegas introduces Electra Cocktail Club. A collision of energy and style, Electra embodies a dynamic scene where cocktail creations challenge the limits of tradition in an atmosphere that exudes an escapist, kinetic vibe. Electra completes The Venetian Cocktail Collective, comprised of the sophisticated Dorsey, The romantic Rosina and now the inventive Electra. The Collective represents the evolution of nightlife in Las Vegas.
“From the beginning we set out to fill a void in the Las Vegas market and Electra Cocktail Club will do just that” said Patrick Lang, Vice President, global restaurant and nightlife development. “The visuals of the room will be stunning. Electra will be a bold, super high energy and forward focused bar. It was designed to be open with clear sightlines across the space so that guests can interact on opposite sides of the room. The integration of technology is unique and will be a defining takeaway for all our guests.”
Electra’s backbar features a diverse selection of spirits with a focus on rums, agricoles, and mezcals. Like the menus at The Dorsey and Rosina, Electra’s offerings were conceived by noted barman Sam Ross and feature cocktails that are both imaginative and playful with a bend toward the tropical.
Highlights from the list include:
- Penichillin, a frozen play on The Dorsey’s popular Penicillin with lemon, ginger, honey and smoky Scotch
- Peach Daiquiri, also frozen, with white rum, rhum agricole, peach and lime
- Trouble Maker, a combination of vodka, sweet vermouth, cucumber, lemon and strawberry
- Pina Verde, a mix of Green Chartreuse, fresh pineapple, lime, coconut and a dash of cream
- Age of Aquarius, with mezcal, passionfruit, lime, honey and Campari.
A digital display spanning 40 feet serves as a focal point for Electra’s guests, featuring original art in a mind-blowing 70 million pixels and more than one billion colors. This visual canvas, the highest resolution video display in Las Vegas, features a curated selection of art providing story lines that unfold throughout the evening.
Designed by award-winning Simeone Deary Design Group under a consulting agreement with Gensler, the 127-seat bar incorporates an intoxicating use of luxurious materials such as brass, granite, etched metals, custom wall coverings and a chandelier with more than 1,200 points of light, offset by deep teal accents throughout the space.
Large plush sofas provide seating in the center of the room while custom lounge chairs with contrasting leathers and metallic trim line the perimeter. Brass high top tables run parallel to the 40-foot-long Carrara stone mosaic and black absolute stone bar.
The most coveted seat in the house, the VIP corner banquette, is surrounded by a stack of ten “bracelets,” each fourteen feet in diameter with metal finishes ranging from brilliant brass to rose gold. Each with a unique design, several of the bracelets sparkle inside and out. On the ceiling, a concave mirror is suspended with gold bands with faceted backlit crystals running around the entire parameter.
The music at Electra is a celebration of all genres of rock from old and modern to indie and synth mixed with current hip hop. The playlist includes tracks 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.
Electra is open daily from 3 p.m. until 4 a.m. For reservations or more information on Electra, call 702.607.1950 or visit palazzo.com. Guests looking to book a large party or group can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
