The $100 million transformation of SLS Las Vegas continues as the resort unveils the elegantly-appointed CASBAR, a 24-hour lounge featuring craft cocktails and inviting seating areas perfect for assessing the action from the casino floor.

Vibrant hues of golds, oranges and purples create a striking setting reminiscent of moody desert sunsets, beckoning guests to come in and stay awhile. Two dual-sided fireplaces serve as focal points in the lounge, as sultry artwork lines the walls of CASBAR.

A selection of reds, whites and bubbles complement the range of craft cocktails specially designed for CASBAR by the resort’s beverage team. Serving as the catalyst for the resort’s reinvigorated mixology program, CASBAR menu highlights include The Vespear, featuring Bombay Sapphire Gin, Grey Goose la Poire Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur and Angostura bitters; Bombshell Botanga made with Herradura Reposada Tequila, real pineapple puree, lime juice and Pepsi cola; and the Deer Bobby featuring Glenfiddich 14-year Scotch Whisky, Giffard Banane Du Bresil, Lustau Oloroso Sherry and Angostura bitters.

“The cocktail program at CASBAR has something for everyone,” said Nate Hedlund, SLS Las Vegas beverage director. “From sweet to dry and boozy to light, the CASBAR program focuses on crafting classic cocktails with a twist. We pay homage to these tried-and-true favorites with the freshest ingredients, garnishes and juices – and deliver them in elegant, classic glassware. We believe the perfect night out, begins with the perfect cocktail.”

The cocktail program at CASBAR, coupled with the venue’s design and modern art installation containing Italian glass mosaic sculptures, make it the ideal centerpiece to highlight the resort’s larger transformation. Updates to the casino floor, hotel rooms, corridors and spa, began last October. Beyond CASBAR, new resort additions include the fast-casual eatery, Uno Mas, along with a soon-to-be-revealed high limit gaming area.
