One good turn of the cocktail shaker deserves another. Nightlife pioneer David Rabin and renowned barman Sam Ross scored big with the Dorsey at Venetian last year, and now they’re taking another big swing with Rosina, a cocktail spot set to open on the casino floor at Palazzo in December.
The classics will be the focus at this new drinking destination. “Like the world-class restaurant experiences we see on the Strip, the Venetian and the Palazzo are reimagining the conventional notion of casino cocktails,” Sam Ross said in a statement. “There is a trailblazing cocktail culture unfolding at these resorts. With Rosina, your enjoyment is enhanced by attention to detail, in the drinks and the setting.”
The intimate bar and lounge will seat nearly 65 with a design inspired by an elegant train car from another era, created in cocktail colors of Champagne, rose gold and blush. Expect lots of brass, crystal lighting, pink velvet chairs and a Champagne call button that will allow bubbly fans to top off their flutes on demand.
Those who enjoy Ross’ creative menu at the Dorsey should revel in his versions of time-honored libations like the Negroni, the Manhattan and the Dark and Stormy. Anyone who appreciates swanky, old-school surroundings and vintage vibes might have a new favorite place.
