If you're like us, you grew up in an age where it was OK to not be so politically correct (man, we miss those days).
During that time you probably learned a fun little song called, "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." Sure, you were like 10 years away from being able to drink the stuff, but it was OK, we were just kids.
Fast forward a few years and taking a bottle down and passing it around sounds like the basis of a fun night. Well, at Rouge inside the MGM Grand you'll feel inclined to sing that childhood favorite as soon as you see the illuminated bottles (definitely more than a 100 of them) on the wall behind the bar.
While you won't be able to take down one of those bottles (they're not real anyway), you can grab a spot next to some friends or someone you would like to be friends with on one of the plush leather couches. The low lighting, red tones throughout and intimate space is ideal for friend making.
Rouge is also somewhere to kick-off your night. The sultry cocktail servers will pique your interest with their eye-popping bustiers and a well-built cocktail list. Additionally, the TVs throughout the space will keep you from missing any of the game before your night of debauchery.
The aforementioned bottles on the wall are a neat feature. On first glance, they look like regular liquor bottles, but a back-lit video screen flashes small images across them continuously, creating a number of images including faux bottle labels. You might be enticed to take one (or two) down, but to save you from embarrassment you may just want to stick to that specialty cocktail your server just brought you.
