More than 150 vodkas in flavors from bacon to peanut butter will be served at a new martini bar set to open next month on the Strip.
VDKA is scheduled to begin pouring shots Dec. 28 at the Encore. It opens the same day as Andrea's, the new Asian restaurant located next door.
Some of the vodkas will be served chilled on tap. A cocktail menu will feature recipes from Franceso Lafranconi, executive director of mixology and spirits educator for Southern Wine and Spirits of Nevada.
Stoli Elit Pristine Water, CLIX Vodka, Jean Marc XO, and Beluga Noble Gold are among the brands that will be available, coming in flavors including tangerine, bacon, basil, peanut butter, hibiscus, whipped cream and sugar cookie.
The bar will be operated by Sean Christie's Las Vegas Nightlife Group, which also runs Andrea's, Encore Beach Club, Surrender and the Society Cafe at the Encore.
Encore is nearly a mirror image of the Wynn Las Vegas, from the brown glass exterior to the style and placement of the logo-- and it's just as luxurious as the original. Some call Encore the younger, hipper sister of Wynn.
Steve Wynn spared no detail in his newest property. The casino floor is decorated in rich reds, browns and purples with mosaic butterflies embedded into the marble floors and fresh flowers greeting guests in the casino atrium.
Luxury doesn't end of the casino floor. Encore houses 2,034 impeccable suites. The standard suites are 700 square feet with the larger suites measuring in at 5,800 square feet. Standard suites feature plasma screen TVs, high-end bath products, spectacular views of the Strip, plush linens and mattresses which can be purchased in the Encore store, in case you can't get enough.
Dining options include fine Italian cuisine at Chef Theo Schoenegger's Sinatra's and the pan-Asian cafe creations of Chef Jet Tila at Wazuzu. Guests can also dine on steaks and chops at star Botero Steak. At Switch, Encore's French restaurant, the walls come to life mid-meal and your surroundings appear to change before your eyes.
XS headlines Encore's nightlife and pool party scene while Danny Gans takes care of humor and entertainment.
Encore Esplanade will feature 11 high-end retail stores, with brands like Hermes, Chanel and Rock and Republic. The Resort also has a spa, a salon and an 18-hole, on-site golf course, which is adjacent to the Wynn.
