Vegas Cocktail Experience at Palms
In a crowded Vegas nightclub, it's usually all but impossible to get a bartender's attention. But for the Vegas Cocktail Experience at Palms on December 6, it will be the bartenders vying for guests' attention. Fifteen of the city's most talented cocktail artists will be competing for the title of Vegas's top mixologist, sharing their signature cocktails for guests to sip and vote on.
As revelers stroll through the party sampling libations, they'll be able to groove to music played by live musicians and spun by house DJ Bass Punks. They'll also be able to take in spectacular views from two of the Palms' lounges and nightclubs: The View and Moon. The View frames the city's glittering lights in floor-to-ceiling windows beyond a room furnished with leather couches, chandeliers, and billiards tables. Moon, a rooftop bar with a retractable roof, shows off starry skies and the gum on the bottom of Orion's shoes.
