Centra Bar @Luxor Summer 2012

Formerly Liquidity, this renovated bar has been given a new lease on life. Sit back, sip a cocktail and enjoy this centrally located, yet welcoming escape surrounded by all the casino action.

Offering the ideal locale for mingling with friends, Centra is a great place to enjoy some casual Las Vegas-style libations while playing video poker at the bar. And with all the biggest sporting events broadcasting live on Centra’s dozens of LCD screens, you have quite the incentive to hang around.

Brand Steakhouse & Lounge @Monte Carlo

Download MP3

Brand Lounge is located just off the casino floor. This 511 square foot lounge is all about comfort and style. Featuring ample low back seating to enjoy a drink and listen to the sounds of the casino floor or the music from the DJ booth Thursdays through Mondays. As is a signature of the Light Group, the bar is discreetly fitted with 5 high definition plasma screens.

The 5000 square foot restaurant is set back from the gaming floor behind the lounge, creating a more intimate feel, even with the larger than average floor size. The dark wood walls and cedar layered ceiling panels contrast sharply against the bright, but soft lighting. The ambience is cool and casual and creates a welcoming atmosphere
