Last night, two-time Emmy award-winning actor William H. Macy sipped on Glenlivet on the rocks at Easy’s Cocktail Lounge, a hip new hidden cocktail bar at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
Joined by a male friend, the “Shameless” star was overheard complimenting the entertainment, led by guitarist and singer Justin Carder – an up-and-coming artist making a big name for himself in Las Vegas.
After the show, Macy introduced himself to Carder and told him, “That was an incredible set,” tipping him $100.
Patrons sitting near the beloved superstar actor, who was dressed casually in jeans and a half-zip sweater, noted the actor’s friendly demeanor. In addition to obliging Carder for a photo, he was gracious when approached by fans.
In addition to showcasing distinctive talents like Carder, Easy’s is known for its theatrical “Showstopper” cocktails, like Shroomin’. Made from Botanist gin, matcha, honey and lemon, the picturesque cocktail for two is presented in mushroom-shaped glasses that emerge from a custom-made wooden tray filled with moss and dry ice, which hovers over the moss in what appears to be a layer of fog.
Hidden behind Easy’s Donuts at Clique Hospitality’s new Proper Eats Food Hall, Easy’s is Vegas’ new “in the know” hot spot in Vegas.
A moody cabaret lounge for posh cocktailing on the low, Easy’s Cocktail Lounge is a sultry world where live musicians play intimate sets and expert bartenders meticulously craft extraordinary drinks.
Easy’s singular dining option is caviar presented in a replica Farberge egg and accompanied by two chilled flutes of vodka and blinis.
Easy’s Cocktail Lounge is open Thursday through Monday, 6 p.m. – 2 a.m. With limited capacity, reservations are strongly encouraged.
