The Palazzo is often considered the more modern younger brother to The Venetian. The two casino-resorts are connected by the Grand Canal Shoppes and restaurant row. The Palazzo recently unveiled a newly remodeled casino floor and renovations to all of its suites.
Similar to The Venetian, The Palazzo is an all-suite resort. There are no small rooms at The Palazzo. The fair price point and relatively quiet casino make The Palazzo one of my favorite properties on the Vegas Strip.
The renovations on the casino floor include new bars and cocktail lounges, unique digital art installations on the casino floor, and new restaurants. “Visitors returning to The Palazzo will find a noticeable difference in the energy level of the resort,” said George Markantonis, president and COO of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo.
He continues, “A culmination of nearly two years of work, we have touched nearly every aspect of the guest experience at The Palazzo. Beginning with the casino, which has been re-imagined from floor to ceiling, and continuing to the resort’s refreshed suites, The Palazzo provides a fresh approach to Las Vegas luxury.”
Here’s a look at the upgrades and renovations at The Palazzo:
Bars and Lounges
Electra Cocktail Club is the new cocktail lounge located in the center of the casino floor. Electra completes “the trinity” for Las Vegas Sands (owner and operator of The Venetian and The Palazzo) known as The Venetian Cocktail Collective.
The bars of The Venetian Cocktail Collective include the sophisticated Dorsey, romantic Rosina and now, the kinetic Electra. This cocktail lounge includes a digital display spanning 40 feet. This display serves as a focal point of Electra and features original art using 70 million pixels and more than one billion colors. The 127-seat bar includes large tufted sofas and custom lounge chairs with contrasting leathers and metallic trim line the perimeter.
The Palazzo casino floor is introducing new elements that go beyond the thrill of traditional casino gaming. Guests will notice an overhead electric ribbon of color that creates waves of light and new marble pathways with patterns and medallions drawn from rich Italian history.
The Palazzo’s newest restaurant will be Mott 32. The new dining concept should open in December 2018. Mott 32 is a celebration of Hong Kong culture and culinary tradition. This restaurant represents the modern Chinese city. Mott 32 will offer fresh daily dim sum, Cantonese and Szechuan fine dining practices.
Mott 32 keeps to its roots with a design by Hong Kong-based Joyce Wang Studio. This is the third Mott 32 restaurant around the world and the first in the United States.
Each of The Palazzo’s 2,872 suites now features a lighter and brighter hotel suite. The room features include from LEED-standard wall coverings, flooring, lighting and finishes.
