Today kicks off the Venetian and Palazzo’s inaugural Winter in Venice celebration that includes a musical performance from Grammy-nominated, platinum recording artist and season six “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks.
While you might want to enjoy the Venetian’s Doge’s Palace, next to the outdoor gondolas, the stunning premiere of the nightly holiday spectacular at 6:30 p.m. that features the lighting of a 65-foot LED holiday tree or the ice skating rink, we’re excited about the new lineup of holiday cocktails at all of the resort’s bars and lounges through Jan. 8. Stop by Fusion, Laguna, La Scena, Oculus and Salute for some of these drinks, or just make them for yourself at home.
