Your Tour Guide: Cisco Torres

Francisco “Cisco” Torres (above) is Ghostbar Dayclub’s first male cocktail server. His role includes establishing the party vibe and fulfilling bottle service requests for his guests. “I love that we get to dress up for the different themes each week. It’s pretty much the best costume party in Vegas.” He adds, “I also love all the props and special effects, such as the confetti cannons and fog machine.” In case you missed it, GBDC is a winter-only daytime party at the Palms’ 55th-floor club, Ghostbar. When pools close for the off-season, parties like GBDC step in to fill the void.

Save the Date

Torres’ tip for gaining access to the spectacle: “The unique aspect of this party is that there is no dress code, and costumes and themed squads are highly encouraged and they will receive complimentary entry.” Upcoming events include Daisy Dukes & Deejay Silver (Dec. 10); an ugly sweater and gift-giveaway party (Dec. 17); and New Year’s Eve during the day (Dec. 31), when you can get a jump on the New Year by partying all day and into the night.

A Must-Try

Among the fun options from the bar, GBDC offers hilarious and highly Instagrammable 40-ounce bottles of malt liquor served in brown bags. Torres also recommends trying one of the specialty cocktails. “My favorite drink on the menu is the Unicorn Punch: Belvedere Wild Berry Vodka, peach liqueur, fresh lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, Peychaud’s Bitters and ginger ale in a souvenir yard glass. You also receive a token to play our new claw arcade game.”

On Deck

Local and resident turntable talent set the scene for some of the craziest wintertime parties each season. “The great part about GBDC is that the party is not centered around a superstar DJ, but rather it’s about the music and the vibe,” Torres says. “Our resident DJs, Mark Stylz and Exodus, are amazing and always play the best music for all tastes.”

Wait, Did You Say “Arcade Game”?

“I love the new GBDC claw machine. You can win some cool prizes and swag,” Torres says. Those include emoji stuffed animals, GBDC gear, extra drink tickets and one grand prize, a stay in the Hardwood Suite. “It’s the unexpected elements about this party that make it so great. Speaking of unexpected, we also surprise our guests each week with some sort of food, either pizza, cheeseburgers or doughnuts.”
