Nights in Las Vegas are electric at Electra Cocktail Club
Electra Cocktail Club is a night of mixed drinks, mixed sounds of music and a mix of company, all in a swank setting that’s spacious enough to practice social distancing. The Palazzo’s lounge sits near the casino floor, but once you step through the curtained doorways it’s a world away from the ringing of slot machines. The design is sleek and modern, a mix of blues, blacks, grays and silver furnishings with technically innovative touches throughout, like the giant digital wall that displays images and artwork throughout the evening.
Guests can delight in the cocktail program created by world-renowned bartender Sam Ross that focuses on tropical-tasting cocktails and a celebration of rum and mezcal spirits, with Electra having one of the largest collections of mezcal offerings on the Strip. Frozen cocktails are a specialty, like the Cucumber & Elderflower Daiquiri, perfect for summer, with white rum, fresh lime, cucumber and elderflower.
Some of the tropical cocktails fall under the “tall” category of the menu, like the fun Unicorn Tears, a mix of gin, fino sherry, fresh lime, pineapple and absinthe. On-the-rocks favorites include the Disgruntled Mai Tai, a blend of two different rums, Aperol, fresh lime, curacao, orgeat and Underberg, and the Age of Aquarius, mixed with mezcal, passion fruit, lime, honey and Campari.
A special Golden Hour menu, served until 8 p.m., includes buy-one-get-one bottles of champagne and $18 champagnes by the glass. For those that love to read the stars and their horoscopes, check out the Zodiac Cocktail Menu. If you know your zodiac sign, locate it on the menu and find treats like this month’s Leo cocktail, a mix of rum, Campari, lime, simple syrup and strawberries. Are you a biting Scorpio? Its cocktail is made with rye, Jamaican rum, Amaro CioCiaro, Carpano Antica, absinthe and a maraschino cherry. There’s the love-for-family sign, the Aries, mixed with Campari, mezcal, aged rum, lime and pineapple juices and ginger syrup and ginger candy.
Food service at Electra comes from the property’s authentic Chinese kitchen and includes dishes like pan-fried pot stickers, Szechaun-style spicy chicken, honey-glazed walnut prawns, crispy shrimp tempura, barbecue pork buns and more deliciousness.
