Electra Cocktail Club Debuts at Palazzo Las Vegas

There’s a new lounge at Palazzo Las Vegas, Electra Cocktail Club, and our liver remains a somewhat viable organ, so we had to check it out.

Electra Palazzo

We never get tired of filling our eyes with Vegas.

We love new casino lounges. Partially because of the liquor, but mainly because of the marketing.

The news release for Electra calls it “an inventive collision of energy and style.”

The Palazzo’s Web site states, “Magnetic in its appeal, fashionable in its aesthetic and garnished with a dash of the surreal, Electra is where avant-garde cocktail creation challenges the limits of tradition in a kinetically charged environment.”

We quite enjoyed our visit, anyway.

It’s like the 50-foot woman from that 1950s movie lost her bracelets.

At Electra, you may not experience a “dash of the surreal,” but the vibe is undeniably appealing.

As advertised, the decor features “brass, granite, etched metals and custom wall coverings,” but the real draw is a massive video screen along one wall of the lounge.

The video display (made up of 34 screens) spans 40 feet and boasts 70 million pixels. Yes, we counted, and your skepticism is duly noted.

Electra claims it has the highest resolution video display in Las Vegas. Thankfully for Electra, there are no video resolution police.

The cocktail menu at Electra is extensive, and it’s clear a lot of care has been taken to create drinks that are accessible while being inventive. Many were inspired by classics, nearly all cost in the $18 range.

Yes, Electra is further proof $18 is the new $12 in Strip cocktail lounges. Just go with it, you’re in Las Vegas!

We were delighted to see Electra named a cocktail after us, the Trouble Maker. The Trouble Maker has vodka, sweet vermouth, fresh cucumber, lemon and strawberry.

We’re pretty sure they didn’t intend for the ice to resemble Nevada, but bonus points, anyway.

The drink was quite good, although our experience of it was tainted by the fact Electra only uses paper straws. It’s amazing Las Vegas venues so committed to flavorful drinks would force guests to drink through paper straws, an experience akin to sucking a gourmet meal through the cardboard tubes found inside holiday wrapping paper.

In addition to that annoyance, we were dismayed to see much of our glass was taken up by a large, rectangular piece of ice. “Presentation ice” as we’ve taken to call it, or “flair ice” if you prefer.

Yes, the ice displaced at least 60% of our $18 drink, but we are a glass-half-full kind of person.

Still, the Trouble Maker was a pleasing cocktail in an environment that conveys a touch of class without being pretentious.

We were surprised and delighted to learn the music volume at Electra was perfect. Which, in our world, means it’s loud enough to give the room energy while allowing for conversation without screaming one’s way to a case of laryngitis.

The DJ deserves a nod as he deftly delivered on the promised “celebration of all genres of rock from old and modern to indie and synth mixed with current hip hop.”

All the very best DJs have an extra set of ears.

Electra Cocktail Club seems a great place to meet up with friends or make new ones, and if you can adjust to the idea cocktails cost $18 a pop, you’re in for a great night out in Vegas.

It’s worth mentioning, by the way, customers at Electra are given a free bottle of water (a $6 value in some of these places) and parking is still free at Venetian and Palazzo.

While you’re at Palazzo, make sure to stop in at another upscale lounge, Rosina.

Rosina lounge Palazzo

Rosina is a village in the Targovishte Municipality of Bulgaria. A little esoteric, don’t you think, Palazzo?

Rosina opened in December 2017, and is part of what’s described as “the trinity that is The Venetian Cocktail Collective.” The third part of the “trinity” is The Dorsey, in the Venetian, that opened in December 2016.

Rosina is more intimate than Electra, and the cocktail menu is much smaller.

The names you know and love, the hangovers you know and love slightly less.

The decor of Rosina features crystal chandeliers, high-top tables and u-shaped banquettes, perfectly suited for groups of six or eight.

Here, the music is more mellow, with an emphasis on soul, R&B and jazz, clearly intended to serve as counter-programming to Electra.

Las Vegas does watering holes right.

With the opening of Electra, Palazzo is now brimming with lounge options.

Dress up (or not), choose the lounge that suits your mood and let Las Vegas do what it does best. Namely, help you get lucky.

Actual results may vary.

    Looks like a nice place to bring someone you want to impress. Unfortunately my favorite drink is a Vodka and Soda. Cannot see paying $18 for that

    Can’t wait to check this place out on my Xmas trip. I’m a huge fan of the Dorsey, they got so much right with that place from the vibe to the decor to the staff, and Rosina is a winner too. If Electra is in the same zone I’ll be doing a lot of ping-pong-ing on that trip between the 3.

    So nice to see a “posh” set of bars not have pretentious bartender attitudes or turn their nose up at someone walking in in a hoodie, as I’m sometimes wont to do. Unlike ANYTHING by the Clique group.

    I checked this place Saturday. I liked the clientele but even tho the casino was very busy Electra was pretty dead.

    $7.50 for a Bud Light!?! Vegas has lost all touch with reality… Also, the decor at this place looks like something from the 70’s (and not in a good way). #VegasFail
