A little whimsy never hurt anybody, so all-aboard Platform 18 at The Century Grand, where guests are invited into a Presidential Pullman-inspired train car for a simulated 90-minute journey through the Rocky Mountains, hosted by one Hollis Cottley Pennington, a railroad tycoon and bootlegger. The 45-strong cocktail list has a strong non-alcoholic component – apt-given the Prohibition-era inspiration – but there's also a selection of drinks including punches, sours, dessert drinks, spiked sorbets and some complex stirred creations like the Philanthropist: cacao-infused cognac, vermouth, Campari, apricot liqueur, amaro, chicory, coconut essence, tiki bitters and orange oil.
