There’s been quite a bit of change at the Mirage lately, from new food and drink venues to stylish modifications to Cirque du Soleil juggernaut The Beatles Love. Literally at the center of it all are a cozy new bar and lounge that just happen to be the ideal starting points for everyone’s night of classic Vegas fun.
The classy Center Bar, done in warm tones of amber and blue to complement the nearby rainforest atrium, is the kind of spot where you can grab a quick beer and a shot, or indulge in a classic cocktail like a beautifully crafted Sazerac or Pimm’s Cup. Share a bucket of icy beers with your crew before your next stop, or spend some time tasting an original libation like Vegas Via Toronto, with Crown Royal, Cinzano Rosso vermouth, Fernet Vittone and orange oil. And if you feel like hanging out a little longer, the adjacent Parlor Lounge is open Tuesday through Saturday nights until 2 a.m., offering live piano music and its own collection of bold cocktails.
A great Vegas casino bar should be a gateway, where the customizing of fun begins. The heart of the Mirage is ready for you. Center Bar at Mirage, 702-791-7111; daily 10 a.m.-5 a.m.
