This lobby bar at The Cromwell features a drink list created by famed mixologist Salvatore Calabrese. Located near registration, it’s a sophisticated oasis before you enter into the madness of the casino floor, done up in lots of gold, with plush seating and a cabinet full of rare spirits. Calabrese, who once set the Guinness World Record for creating the World’s Most Expensive Cocktail, left that one off this list, but does serve up his Breakfast Martini here. Legend has it that he created it after his wife implored him to eat breakfast (as opposed to drinking it, we’re assuming), so he made this with the orange marmalade he puts on his toast. To go along with this theme, Bound also has a selection of nice, strong coffee cocktails, to give you a jolt as well as a buzz. Bound is open Monday through Thursday from 4pm to midnight and Friday through Sunday from noon to midnight.
