The amenities at Rain Nightclub just got a little swankier. Last weekend, the club at the Palms introduced a new VIP room serving up Harlem Kruiden Liqueur. The drink is served up as a shot and made by the Nolet family, makers of Ketel One Vodka, and named after Haarlem, a town outside of Amsterdam.
The sexy and elegant space within the venue that combines luxurious furnishings and a full-service bar to party-goers. Decked in crimson paint, black carpeting and with red neon lighting framing the door, the décor includes three Kristall chandeliers designed by Jonas Wannfors as well as horizontally-placed mirrors that display Harlem’s motto, “Proost!” Dutch for “cheers!” Three TVs and three oversized black couches round out the room.
The VIP room comes on the heels of the Harlem Shot Showcase last Monday at Rain. Bartenders from around the country came up with their own interpretations of the 2-ounce drink. They combined ingredients such as pumpkin and nutmeg as well as fresh marmalade, chocolate and espresso.
The Harlem Kruiden Liqueur VIP room at Rain will serve the brand’s signature drink, The Slamsterdam, in addition to a range of cocktails made exclusively for Harlem.
