Octane @Excalibur Spring 2012

Octane Lounge is a small, but high energy night spot. Styled after a mechanics motorcycle garage with a twist of Las Vegas flair, the bar is decorated with modern metal inspired artwork and motorcycle paintings lining the walls. The center piece of the bar features 3 bad ass phantom motorcycles.

Rhumbar at the Mirage

Rhumbar is a 2000 square foot outdoor/outdoor bar that opened in early 2009 and is themed as a modern Caribbean oasis right on Las Vegas Boulevard. Inside the design is bright and modern which contrasts sharply against the lush outdoor patio.

The patio has excellent views of the infamous Mirage volcano and lake and provides a great spot to watch the show at night. With comfortable patio seating and cool misters for the hot summer days and carefully placed heat lamps for the brisk nights, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail.

Rhumbar features an extensive cocktail menu and over 40 different rums. Further enhancing the Cuban feel, Rhumbar is fitted with a large humidor complete with local and imported cigars. For something different, patrons can partake in unlimited hookah pipes for $65, in a wide array of flavors.
