Not a fan of Las Vegas’ bustling crowds and excruciating heat during the summer? Now is the perfect time for a cool escape to Sin City – and the quieter months means hotel rates are generally lower, so live it up in luxury during winter before it’s too late.

For anyone wanting to stay in a prime location on one of the busiest intersections of the Las Vegas Strip, look no further than The Cromwell.

With more than 20 million passersby each year, The Cromwell features 188 rooms and suites, a 40,000 square foot casino, hotel lobby bar, lounge, restaurant by Giada De Laurentiis, and beach and nightlife venues by Victor Drai.

Its rooms blend vintage with modern, with black Parisian-style awnings and gold fixtures.

The Cromwell’s casino features 66 table games, 434 slot machines, and a reserved gaming salon.

The hotel bar and lounge, Interlude, with its centralized location and close proximity to nightlife, serves as a social-inspired gathering place featuring cutting edge mixology.

Salvatore’s more than 30 years of experience shines with perfectly executed classic cocktails, never-before-seen espresso cocktails, elegant champagne cocktails, and signature creations.

Featured on the carefully-curated menu are Salvatore’s signature cocktails, many of which are iconic and are synonymous with the famous bartender.

The Breakfast Martini comes from Salvatore’s wife insisting he eat breakfast, to which he replied with a gin cocktail mixed with the finest orange marmalade, the same topping he uses for his toast. Also featured is the Spicy Fifty, which combines the best of sweet and sour on the palate with a warm finish.

Selections of champagne cocktails showcase elegance and style, synonymous with those who drink them. Highlights from these bubbly creations are The Cromwell Fizz, comprised of Macallan Fine Oak Whiskey, lemon juice and orange bitters, topped with Moët & Chandon Impérial Champagne, fitting of its namesake, and the Bunny Bubbles, which pulls inspiration from certain iconic centerfold bunnies, and is made with raspberry puree and fresh pomegranate.
