Inside, the Mirage's paradisiacal setting is replete with a huge rain forest atrium under a conservatory dome filled with jungle foliage, meandering streams and soothing cascades. Woven into the tropical waterscape are scores of bromeliads enveloped in sunlight and fed by a computerized misting system.

Hits include Cirque du Soleil's Beatles LOVE ; the psychedelic Fab Four-inspired Revolution Lounge ; mojitos on the Strip-view patio at Rhumbar ; and an NYC-import nightclub, 1 OAK .
