The bartenders of The Cocktail Collective found their holiday cheer in the form of—you guessed it—cocktails. Fans of gin, we have your new favorite: The Grinch at The Dorsey Cocktail Bar. This drink is sweet, spicy, and smooth, just like St. Nick going down a chimney. At Rosina Cocktail Lounge, you’ll find the layered Chris Cringle cocktail. Crème de cacao and crème de menthe combines for a spunky mint experience that knocks it out of the North Pole—instant classic. If you’re looking for some holiday spirit with a pick-me-up, let us introduce Reindeer Fuel at Electra Cocktail Club. It starts with a coffee liquor base, and it gets better from there. Allspice dram and mezcal infuse the taste with a warmth that tackles any winter chill. The cream float combines perfectly with the coffee flavor, making each sip rich and silky. Each of these cocktails will be available the entire month of December. Get into the festive spirit and raise a glass.

Show Bio

Lead bartender at The Dorsey inside The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas, Evan Hosaka has climbed the ranks in the competitive bar world over a short period of time. With nearly a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, Hosaka quickly garnered a love for the service trade having worked from everything from doorman to mixologist in prestigious cities such as Waikiki, Portland, San Francisco and now Las Vegas.

A native of Oahu, Hawaii, Hosaka knew he wanted to leave the island from a young age and after a brief stint in Portland, settled in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he tended bar at a variety of acclaimed restaurants and nightlife hotspots including Pacific Catch, Cocina Central, and Oceano Hotel and Spa. It was in the Bay Area that he knew he wanted to work in the beverage industry and worked his way up the ladder from bar back to bartender – having always been at the right place, at the right time.

In 2015, Hosaka moved to Las Vegas to further foster his career in the food and beverage industry. He got his start at the infamous Wolfgang Puck’s Spago at The Forum Shops, and shortly after made his way to The Venetian.

In late 2016, he was part of the team that opened The Dorsey inside The Venetian, the resort’s first of three bar that make up The Cocktail Collective.  After a year, Hosaka was promoted to the role of lead bartender at Rosina inside The Palazzo, an intimate and beautiful bar known for celebrating the classics – where he used his love of the craft, meaningful social interaction, and his respect and admiration for his colleagues to deliver the best cocktails and service for his guests.  In less than one-year Hosaka was yet again promoted to lead bartender at Electra Cocktail Club, a playful and energetic bar at the center of The Palazzo casino floor. Electra completed the trinity that is The Cocktail Collective, comprised of the sophisticated Dorsey, and the romantic Rosina. In 2021, Evan moved back to The Dorsey, this time as the lead bartender.

As someone who deeply cares about every aspect of the customer experience, Hosaka has set a unique tone at The Dorsey among colleagues and customers alike of comradery, shared craft cocktail knowledge and advice, and unmatched service that elevates everyone’s collective experience when they step into the bar. Previously having worked at The Dorsey under the previous Lead Bartender, Juyoung Kang, who he considers his mentor, Hosaka caught the attention of higher-ups, who recognized a spark in him and a passion for elevating the customer experience that led to his promotion at Rosina and Electra.  

Hosaka’s favorite part of the job is the ability to give back by helping others have the most wonderful experience possible while they are in Las Vegas. From recommending restaurants and fun things to do, to lending an ear to what has disappointed them, he considers every interaction an opportunity to turn someone’s experience from a negative one into a positive one. Hosaka’s passion stems from his deep belief that tending bar allows him to create value and give back through social interaction.

When not crafting cocktails and enhancing a customer’s experience, Hosaka can be found spending time with his cat and dog, reading up on various wine and cocktail books, and personal development.
