Beatle mania is back in a big way at the Mirage Hotel and Casino with its new ultra lounge, Revolution Lounge. While inspired by the Beatles era of self expression and free love, the primary influence behind Revolution Lounge actually comes from its creator, Cirque du Soleil. The lounge serves as the perfect complement to Cirque's popular show "Love."
Revolution Lounge takes a modern twist on '60s psychedelic imagery, sound and decor, reflecting the true multigenerational influence of legendary of the legendary 60's group, the Beatles. The Beatles theme is obvious in the Yellow Submarine-inspired portholes behind the bar to the 30,000 crystals adorning the ceiling in the spirit of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." Cocktail waitresses in go-go attire serve up specialty drinks like English Breakfast and Strawberry Fields.
At Revolution guest DJs, including celebrities, spin a progressive mix of house, rock, electronic, new wave and British pop genres. The musical themes change night by night, but original Beatles' music and covers of Beatles' songs can be heard from noon to 10 p.m. daily. For a special treat there is occasionally a live band that will play, such as the local Las Vegas group, Love Pentagon.
Revolution Lounge is not just a "groovy" place to hang out; its modern twist is a truly interactive experience. Inspired by the graffiti found on a brick wall outside The Beatles' Abbey Road Studios in London, Bouchard found a way to put technology to an innovative new use. Revolution lounge offers seven VIP tables that allow guests to create colorful tabletop graffiti using their fingers or other objects. That artwork can then be projected onto a central diamond-shaped column in the lounge.
Whether you experienced the original outbreak of Beatle mania or have only recently discovered the group's powerful music and message, fans now have a spot in Las Vegas to "come together."
