Camden Cocktail Lounge Grand Opening in May
This May, something new is springing on to the scene in Las Vegas: the highly anticipated Camden Cocktail Lounge! We’re proud to announce that the lounge is scheduled to open in May of 2018.
Located at the base of the newly renovated Palms Resort Casino, Camden has been generating plenty of buzz as one of the most exciting new Vegas openings. Read on to learn a few of the many reasons why the lounge should be on your list as one of the hottest new spots to visit in Sin City!
Creative fusion by cocktail geniuses.
What makes one lounge a hot spot and another one a flop? Believe it or not, there are plenty of considerations that go into curating an amazing lounge experience. There are actually people and businesses who dedicate their lives and careers to figuring out what makes successful lounges tick and then working hard to put it into action for establishments. Camden Cocktail Lounge is the brainchild of two such creative forces: the Clique Hospitality Group and Vegas nightlife visionaries Ryan Labbe and Jason “JRoc” Craig
In case you’re unfamiliar, the Clique Hospitality Group is established as a pioneer of nightlife and culinary establishments, having created such venues as Clique Bar and Lounge, Hearthstone Kitchen and Cellar, Bottiglia Cucina & Enoteca, Borracha Mexican Cantina, and more. Labbe and Craig are the darlings of the Vegas nightlife world, and have had a hand in creating or consulting on several of the most vibrant spots in town. With the creative groups and people involved in conceiving Camden Cocktail Lounge, it’s bound to be amazing.
The end goal is the experience.
One of the things that sets Clique Hospitality and its venues apart is that it has one simple goal: to deliver an incredible experience to customers. This simple goal allows them to keep their priorities straight, and it also allows them to consider every part of delivering that experience. With this mentality, everything from the decor to the staff to the drinks menu is geared toward delivering an experience. The result is that the establishment has a high caliber of products and service, and truly does deliver a sort of experience that lingers in the customer’s mind.
At Camden Cocktail Lounge, you’re not just going to hit up a lounge and get a drink. You’re going to be dazzled by the entire experience, and you’ll absolutely want to come back for more!

A $485 million resort revitalization.
As noted above, Camden Cocktail Lounge is among the new offerings in the recently renovated Palms Resort Casino. Now, when we say “renovation” we’re not talking about re-doing some carpeting or fixtures. This is an all-out overhaul, amounting to a massive $485 million resort revitalization.
Doing this sort of renovation and revitalization requires vision. It also requires the ability to be willing to spend money where and when necessary to bring that vision to reality. The Palms Resort Casino revitalization absolutely falls into this category. No expense is being spared, because in Vegas, people want to have their socks knocked off! Camden Cocktail Lounge is part of this thoughtful and incredible revitalization, so you’re bound to be dazzled by the entire experience, from the moment you step into the Palms and into the lounge location within the resort.

Incredible craft cocktails.
As the name of the lounge implies, cocktails are the name of the game. Camden Cocktail Lounge is dedicated to the art of craft cocktails.
Once again, Clique Hospitality’s dedication to delivering the ultimate customer experience comes into play here. It’s not about simply creating cocktails that can make money for the lounge. It’s about creating incredible cocktails that will blow customers’ minds and keep them coming back for more!
Working with “Head Intoxicologist” Eric Hobbie, a creative and delicious menu of cocktail creations awaits you at Camden Cocktail Lounge. Curious to learn more? Read our interview with Eric Hobbie to get a sneak peek at some of the cocktails on offer!

A luxuriant atmosphere.
In spite of its location right in the thick of the Palms Resort Casino, Camden Cocktail Lounge offers a luxuriant, decadent getaway from all the action. The beautifully appointed interior breathes opulence and indulgence, offering guests an experience “akin to modern and mysterious library,” with details like a decadent bookcase lining one wall. Don’t worry, though, it’s not without modern touches: flat screen TVs offer a welcome and necessary nudge to technology.
Moreover, it’s a calm and sophisticated atmosphere that practically begs you to enjoy another drink. Cheers!
Bookended by Apex Social Club.
Camden Cocktail Lounge is conveniently located near the entrance of the resort, which means that it’s easily accessible. But 54 floors above, it has a bookend: Apex Social Club, another new venue brought to you by Clique Hospitality.
Where Camden Cocktail Lounge offers a calm setting to enjoy craft cocktails, if you feel like getting more into party mode as the evening wears on, you can switch gears and take the elevator up to its sister establishment, Apex Social Club. Boasting some of the best views in Vegas, Apex offers a different yet just as high caliber experience as Camden Cocktail Lounge. It’s nice to have variety in life, and these two venues ensure that you can have it without leaving the resort!
For tourists and locals.
One of the most important goals in creating Camden Cocktail Lounge was to create a Las Vegas bar that appealed to not just tourists, but locals as well. After all, the residents of Las Vegas are a huge part of the community, and their seal of approval on an establishment truly matters! As such, there was a strong emphasis on creating a space that would appeal to both locals and visitors. As you come to visit the lounge in May, we hope that you’ll agree that we’ve struck the perfect balance.
A decadent, wonderful ambiance. Mind blowing cocktails. An overall great experience. What’s not to love about Camden Cocktail Lounge? We can’t wait to see you in the lounge when we open in May.
