The cocktails are pedigreed (and shareable)
Bar director Leo Robitschek doesn’t mess around. He’s a James Beard Award-winning innovator who’s been with Humm and Guidara since their early Eleven Madison Park days and helped NoMad New York earn the title of Top Bar in North America (and fourth in the world) on the 2018 list of The World’s 50 Best Bars. For any bar director, the nightlife mecca of Vegas brings exciting opportunities -- and Robitscheck isn’t shying away.
In addition to live jazz provided by the NoMad Bar’s Steinway piano, guests will get the chance to order “cocktail explosions,” aka large-format drinks served in a giant chalice that, “depending on your tolerance” (as the menu advises), serve four to eight guests. Consider ordering the American in Rome (bourbon, Foro Amaro, lemon, and orange) while waiting for your table. The lengthy list of (standard-sized) NoMad cocktails includes the Hot Lips (jalapeño-infused tequila, mezcal, pineapple, lemon, and vanilla) and Nod to Nothing (London dry gin, lemon, green tea, apricot liqueur, yuzu, and sage), among many others -- all of which serve as the perfect warm-up before heading out to the casino floor.
