Studio Munge is the fresh iteration of Italian designer Alessandro Munge’s 20 years of experience creating remarkable interiors. Studio Munge has brought yet another Clique Hospitality experience to life with the modern revitalization of the Palm’s iconic APEX rooftop bar.
As guests ascend into wonder and excitement, a 360-degree NanaWall reveals limitless views of Las Vegas. The open connection to the sky creates a seamless transition from vivacious daytime parties to the spirited movements of a Vegas nightclub. A lustrous black, gold, and white geometric floor reflect the building’s abstract diamond architecture. The graphite and sapphire statement bar entices the thirst of high-rollers and hotel guests alike.
Supporting the Palms’ impressive art collection, four charming sculptures from renowned contemporary artist Dustin Yellin that comprise the series “Pyschogeorgraphies” will intrigue guests as they observe their humanistic form. Each humanoid sculpture is composed of collages laid in glass and fused with resin to create 3D paintings. Through layered elements of discovery and awe, this modern bar by Studio Munge will reposition the Palms’ as the ultimate destination to see and be seen in Las Vegas.
The fine experience begins on the ground floor of the hotel, welcoming guests via a corridor clad with wallcoverings in black and midnight blue. A custom oversized metal screen is installed beside two elevators that lead exclusively to the open-air club. “The ascension into Apex is one of anticipation and discovery, feelings we brought forth through dramatic lighting and dark ombré tones that frame remarkable views of Las Vegas!” says Alessandro from Studio Munge.
“We wanted to make something that is so impactful, so cool, so different, that it really kind of took away what it used to be.” – Andy Masi, Clique Hospitality.
