This is the total opposite of one of those times.
But for the hell of it, let’s go ahead and act like choosing between Center Bar and Parlor Lounge is a matter of life and death. They’re two new Liz Pierce–spearheaded havens for pre-Thanksgiving revelry, and they’re both open now in the Mirage.
Come. Let us explore.
Center Bar (pictured left): It used to be the high-limit slot area; now it’s awash with warm amber hues and not-slot-machines.
Parlor Lounge: It used to be the poker room; now it’s a wood-paneled room with emerald accents and not-poker.
Edge: See them both here and decide for yourself.
Center Bar: You’d feel comfortable coming here whenever, day or night. And, as the name implies, it’s in the center of everything.
Parlor Lounge: It’s pretty intimate and piano-y. Because it’s a piano lounge.
Edge: We had you at “piano-y.”
Center Bar: A nice mix of wine, beer and classic cocktails.
Parlor Lounge: A clever menu with things like bell-pepper-infused vodka, a matcha-tea-and-gin drink and a four-rum cocktail.
Edge: What’s your stance on rum?
