New Fusion Bar at The Palazzo in Las Vegas Offers Guests Out of this World Latin-Inspired Cocktails

There is a whole new vibrant energy on the casino floor at The Palazzo in Las Vegas.  Their new Fusion bar has recently opened and it features a Latin-inspired mixology bar with beautifully handcrafted cocktails focusing on the Latin American beverage culture. 

Designed by hand-picked, award-winning bartenders and mixologists, Fusion’s cocktail menu focuses on Brazilian, Peruvian, and Mexican regions of the world. Flavorful music and video from Latin America play throughout the day and night as guests enjoy delicious fusions custom made by a skillfully trained mixology team. 

The mixology team at Fusion creates their select cocktails through muddling– a technique that uses the concept of mixing fresh fruit with a stainless steel rod, by hand, to create a refreshing, all-natural concoction. Examples include the Peruvian-fused Pisco Tango, with mango infused Barsol Pisco Quebranta, fresh lime juice, rock candy syrup, and funkin mango puree; Brazilian-infused Pineapple Batida with Agua Luca Cachaca, fresh pineapple juice, and sweetened condensed milk; or the Mexican-fused Paloma with pink grapefruit, tequila, rock candy syrup, fresh pink grapefruit juice and 7 Up. 

“Fusion brings the regional beverage culture of Latin America to The Palazzo,” said Sebastien Silvestri, executive director of food and beverage for The Palazzo and The Venetian. “With fine spirits such as rum, pisco, cachaca, and tequila coupled with fresh fruit, the cocktail experience at Fusion will allow guests to enjoy a premium beverage in a high energy environment.” 

Along with offering the finest cocktails, gaming machines consisting of blackjack, keno, poker, and slots are conveniently located at the bar. Happy Hour Specials occur daily from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. – Midnight. Fusion is located on The Palazzo casino floor and is open 24 hours a day.

Las Vegas’ “Cocktail Culture” Offers International Stimulus Elixir

The Social Mixology Summer World Tour kicks off their program this month, bringing Las Vegas BarMagic’s cocktail-culture events to cities around the globe, including Manhattan, Aspen, Johannesburg, London and beyond. SocialMixology

As they state on their website: “The premise of Social Mixology is simple- create an interactive experience for the cocktail community to showcase Las Vegas’ best cocktail talent, cocktail bars, and artisan brands in an atmosphere that is a little bit sexy, a little bit laid-back, and little bit fun.” 

“We’ve seen a lot of interest in the program outside Vegas,” says BarMagic co-owner Tobin Ellis, “and it just so happens we had a few clients book us for things out of town, and decided rather then just pause the whole program, we would see if we could take it on the road.”
