The Empathy Suite │ Palms Casino Resort │ Las Vegas
Damien Hirst’s 9,000-square-foot masterpiece.
A Work of Art
Rethink art. Rethink villas. Rethink Vegas in this unthinkable space from the mind of Damien Hirst.
Empathy Suite, a Sky Villa designed by and featuring the works of world-renowned artist Damien Hirst. With many original pieces from some of Hirst’s most notable series, a custom butterfly-motif mosaic tiled cantilevered pool overlooking the Las Vegas Strip and Venus gray marble featured throughout the villa, this 9,000 square-foot, two-story hotel suite is the first and only of its kind featuring a collection of contemporary art at this scale.
The suite, which opened in March 2019, also features a cantilevered pool overlooking the Vegas Strip, a Himalayan salt room and other luxurious amenities all tweaked with Hirst’s signature touch. It also includes a 24-hour butler, car service and $10,000 in resort credit, just in case guests want to try and win back some of their investment at the blackjack table.

Francesco Lafranconi, the former executive director of mixology and spirits education at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, debuted a luxury cocktail lounge in the Fantasy Tower of the Palms. Customers who take the elevator up to the third floor can order cocktails and bites while enjoying art and live entertainment. More than 30 vermouths, and quinine-based and fortified wines make the menu of the lounge named the retreat for Lafranconi’s dog. Customers receive a cocktail amuse bouche before they even step food in the elevator.
