Revolution combines the sensibilities of Cirque du Soleil's "LOVE" with Light Group's nightlife experience, offering both a bar and full-fledged nightclub, giving you options for exactly the kind of nightlife experience you want. The association with The Beatles might leave you expecting a poorly-themed gimmick, but Revolution surpasses that easily.
The bar at the front looks like a cooler version of what poets and artists in the '60s must have imagined a bar would look like in 2010, with lots of rounded, polished white surfaces, a shiny bar top and seating located inside the letters of the massive "REVOLUTION" sign that faces the rest of The Mirage resort. The bar hours are longer than the club's hours, so you can still stop by for a drink or two without hitting the club.
The nightclub in the back carries a lot of that same look, but with the lighter elements replaced with subdued and dark surfaces with multicolored lighting. Psychedelic columns prop up the seating facing both the bar and dance floor areas.
Revolution is a smaller venue among the rest of the Vegas club scene, but still feels plenty roomy when it's packed on the weekends, with VIP seating toward the sides of the DJ booth and the back, past the bar. The tables here are more fun than your average nightclub table, letting VIPs draw on the table surface with their hands, interacting with the patterns projecting on to the club's light-up columns. You can expect to find a soundtrack of EDM with interspersed mashups most nights, but Revolution serves up the "Revolucion Latina" Latin night, "Good Foot" hip-hop night and "Closet Sundays" for any and all to get their dance on to their favorite groove.
Ironically, the best way Revolution captures the near-universal appeal of The Beatles is to forgo any sort of inevitably cheesy Beatles theme almost entirely. There are a lot of touches you might associate with the band's psychedelic era, from the trippy video screens, to the "diamonds" in the sky (see what they did there?) but really they're just very cool details that make for a timeless experience that anyone can enjoy, just like the music of a certain band from Liverpool.
