Three cheers for cocktail collective: Palazzo’s Electra lights up as chic and sophisticated

Good things really do come in threes, as the new Electra Cocktail Club in Palazzo makes strikingly clear. The third entry into The Venetian Cocktail Collective, which already has produced The Venetian’s Dorsey and Rosina at Palazzo, is the boldest and most daring of the trio. Located on the casino floor, it’s a chic cocoon of electric colors and sexy sophistication that hearkens back to the glam-rock era.

The lounge’s centerpiece is a 40-foot, 70 million-pixel display that slowly morphs through original works of art, from brilliant light shows to tastefully sexy nude bodyscapes, over the course of the evening. Other design touches include a 127-seat bar accented with luxurious splashes of brass, granite and etched metals, plush sofas, contrasting leather lounge chairs and a chandelier illuminated by more than
1,200 points of light.

With clear lines of sight, Electra is a place to see and be seen, and there’s no better view than from the most coveted seat in the house, the VIP corner banquette. Housed within what looks like a stack of giant, sparkling bangle bracelets, under a concave mirror with backlit faceted crystals, it offers VIPs, high-rollers and anyone else fabulous enough to secure it for the night views of both the lounge and the casino floor.

With a soundtrack that includes David Bowie and Cardi B, the party is fueled by a spirits collection with a focus on mezcal, rum and its cousin, agricole, and an imaginative tropical cocktail program designed by barman Sam Ross. Order one of his signature creations, such as the Age of Aquarius (mezcal, passionfruit, lime, honey and Campari), and let the evening begin.
