Casino bars usually bring to mind watery rum punches and built-in screens for playing poker at your seat. So when you walk past the blackjack tables in the Palms to find a huge deconstructed shark and Unknown’s cocktail menu with things like a barrel-aged negroni and an allspice dark and stormy, you’ll have to reconsider your expectations. That might just be the motto for a trip to Vegas, though. Sitting at the circular bar is perfect for people watching or testing out your new pick-up line that starts with “there are plenty of fish in the sea” before mumbling something about sharks sleeping with their eyes open and introducing yourself.
