Red Hot Rouge

Intimate, red velvet booths in this ‘conversation bar’ provide a sexy backdrop for a first date get-to-know-you exchange. Later in the evening, Bar Rouge fills with cool-cats sipping cocktails and grooving to jazzy tracks. For a truly VIP experience, ask how to reserve “The Dark Room” for your personal posse.
