They were also a place for the citizens to gather and hear the latest news, trade in gossip, or catch some time with friends and neighbors before heading home for the night. At The Venetian, the Oculus bar is much the same. Set among the slots of the Doge’s Palace, and watched over by the Lion of St. Mark, Oculus offers patrons a wide array of libations. Open 24 hours daily. Press Contact: The Venetian Public Relations 702-414-4334 or email@example.com Robert G.
