The Las Vegas-inspired cocktail lounge has neon lights, wallpaper with a Walt Disney original pattern, orange leather booths, and a bar with an antiqued-mirror backdrop. An back room can host events for 50, and has a billiards table and a remote-controlled fireplace topped with a turquoise hood. Old-fashioned cocktails include the Paloma Punch, which mixes tequila with agave syrup, lime, soda, and grapefruit bitters. The opening food selection includes rillette with house-baked challah, beer mustard, bourbon butter, and smoked pork belly; scallops with roasted carrot puree, chimichurri, grapefruit, and frisee; and a hamburger on a brioche bun with caramelized onions, bacon, fried egg, and Gruyere cheese.
