The Resort Hotels – Hard Rock Hotel:
Velvet


What: Trendy watering hole
Where: Off the main lobby lounge
Price Range: $ - $$
Hours: 4:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. daily
Reservations: None

Plasma TV screens on the wall provide a never ending flow of music videos for the crowds that gather in this intimate, postmodern lounge. It has quickly proved to be the place for groups of friends to meet before an evening at the hotel or CityWalk.

The decor relies on the same artfully mismatched furniture that fills the lobby. To this are added some wonderfully tacky faux zebra chairs, abstract art, and portraits of rock stars in a color-filled mish-mash that makes you feel like you've had a bit too much to drink before you take your first sip. A well-placed divider splits the room into a bar area and a more secluded lounge area, and servers in chic black prowl the bar and the adjacent lobby lounge taking orders. For serious drinkers there is cognac ($10 to $175) and single malt Scotch ($11 to $55). There are about two dozen specialty drinks ($10.50 and up) on offer as well as an abbreviated menu ($10 to $16) of things to nibble on, including shrimp cocktail, burgers, and salads. Hookah water pipes ($20) and cigars ($6 to $20) are also available.

A stand-up comic is featured on Thursday nights; there is no cover charge, but the value may vary depending on how much alcohol you've had.
