Nightlife in Las Vegas has been splattered across the front pages of magazines since the birth of the city. We are the dominating force, but after years of zombie-like dancing and EDM DJs, it’s gotten a little stale. Vegas nightlife needed someone to create the next big trend. Cue Electra Cocktail Club inside The Palazzo at The Venetian Resort. With its synergistic vibe, a playlist that inspires thought and a top-notch cocktail program that packs a punch, Electra Cocktail Club is a breath of fresh air in a crowded field of cocktail lounges. Welcome to “Nightlife for Adults,” the ultimate playground for creative conversations and self-expression. Here the old rules don’t apply, Electra sets their own and it would be wise to hop aboard before you’re packed in coach with a million others. Here, we don’t like bandwagoners, we hang out with the originals.
First things first, if you’re going to be a trailblazer, you have to make a good first impression. When people pick a bar, they often choose it for the vibe. Electra Cocktail Club creates a harmonious, but fun, atmosphere with style and cocktails. The layout of the lounge makes you comfortable and the music raises your eyebrows because it’s different from anything else you’ll find in a Las Vegas nightclub, it’s soothing. The sleek design is something you would find in a glossy catalog, and you might want to take an ottoman home with you. But the one thing that will catch your attention is the 40-foot digital canvas that sets the night’s mood. Using more than 70 million pixels, this is an animated art piece and conversation starter. As the night goes on, and after a few cocktails, you’ll start to feel your mood ebb and flow with the color of the atmospheric art. If it turns red, maybe you’ll gain some courage to go over and talk to someone that caught your attention. Maybe yellow will give you an everlasting energy that will make you want to stay up until the sunrise, but our favorite is purple. It gives the room a feeling of mystery and curiosity. After all, everyone loves a good mystery.
Diamond Studded Décor
When your retinas are soothed and the stress begins to slide off your shoulders and to the ground, take a look around. If you can’t think of anything to talk about, the décor is a great place to start. Whether it’s the chandelier with more than 1,200 points of light or the golden bangle that reminds you of the winner’s circle, the choice is yours. The diamond studded gold brass bangle descends six feet from the ceiling, and the bright white light draws you to the center. It’s as if once you step in, your night will transform. If you stare at it long enough, and with a handful of cocktails, the golden beauty will start to move. Electra Cocktail Club created the vibe to have a purpose. Every little detail was meticulously placed to inspire the patron.
The Soundtrack to Your Life
What’s a better inspiration than music? It can lift you up when you’re down, it can create an atmosphere that makes you want to get up and dance. With so many useless conversations and phone pings buzzing in your ears all day, it’s great to hear something that resonates with your soul and brings a smile to your face. With Electra’s blend of classics, indie, synth-rock and hip hop, there’s no bad track. This is the playlist you would want to play in the background of your life if it were made into a movie. Electra doesn’t stick to one genre because it doesn’t want to be confined in a small box. Trend setters don’t pick one thing and stick to it. They’re adaptable – fluid. If Electra wanted to flip the nightlife script, they needed to make sure their music shattered the glass ceiling.
The Cocktail Culture
When you hear the name Electra Cocktail Club, what comes to mind? For us it’s a fun speakeasy that serves delicious cocktails. And that’s exactly what this Las Vegas bar created. It took classic cocktails and reimagined them in a light-hearted way. Take the Penicillin for example, instead of making this specialty cocktail on ice, they put an icy spin on it and made it into a frozen drink. It’s an elevated Slurpee with high-end ingredients that won’t have you waking up with a headache. It flips slushy drinks from trashy to classy, and since Vegas is warm 300 days of the year, it will be a great way to cool off. The names of the other cocktails are fun and memorable as well. Need a pick me up? Get a Charging Station made with vodka, cold brew coffee, coconut and hellfire bitters. Looking to get in trouble? They have the Trouble Maker made with of vodka, sweet vermouth, fresh cucumber, lemon and strawberry. And if you’re feeling a bit peeved and need take a load off? The Disgruntled Mai Tai can relate. These drinks were modified to be fun and entertaining. Electra makes their cocktails sexy and chic, and they don’t take themselves too seriously. Throw the stuffiness out the window and laugh at all the names in the book. You might draw people’s attention if you’re the table laughing the loudest. And it might interest someone to make their way over and add a different dynamic into the mix of your friends. Nights like these are meant for you to connect with new people, and it makes it even better that it’s over whimsical cocktails.
Comfort You Can Count On
Another trend they’re here to set is in the seating department. Nightlife in Vegas consists of long lines, lots of standing and no places to relax and unwind. Electra understands that in order to truly enjoy something, you need to feel comfortable first. With so many places to sit, you can easily see how Electra was designed for conversation. While sipping on your cocktail, you’re lounging instead of killing your feet in those cute Jimmy Choos. Beauty doesn’t have to come with a side of discomfort. The seating at Electra is inviting, and no matter where you sit, you’ll be comfortable. They have sofas lined around the edges of the bar with more than enough pillows, velvet covered couches that will automatically catch your eye and high-top seating that will give you a great birds eye view of what’s going on all throughout the bar. Each one of these seating arrangements is conversation friendly, and since space matters, there’s plenty of room for you to get up and move about the room whenever you feel like it. Remember, the normal rules don’t apply here. Some might say that since you’re so comfortable it helps drop your guard and opens you up to conversations with strangers.
Electra Cocktail Club is a trend that will last in Las Vegas way longer than most of those YouTube challenges. It’s here to challenge nightlife industry standards and create a space that’s setting its sights on how the nightlife experience should be. They want you to feel inspired, they want you to have stimulating conversations and they want you to feel empowered in your own bodies. Once you take a step inside, you’ll see Electra Cocktail Club is filled with people who will respond with more than a “what’s up?” It’s filled with people who will challenge your way of thinking. All of these elements were put together for a reason. Their meticulous planning created a space full of energy, innovation and style. And that, will never go out of style.
