In a city in which classy-sounding names don’t always accurately describe the establishments to which they’re attached, you’ve got to appreciate the name of the upscale pool lounge at The Mirage.
Bare. Short. Accurate, seeing as how Bare offers, as the phrase goes, "European-style sunbathing." And very, very sweet.
This summer marks Bare’s third season of offering warm-weather comfort and entertainment to throngs of guest and locals. And because it’s operated by The Light Group, Bare offers a definite clublike sensibility.
Amenities include two saltwater dipping pools, an upper-deck infinity pool and a private VIP area that overlooks The Mirage’s dolphin habitat.
Daybeds, chaise lounges and private cabanas are available, and guests can enjoy bottle service or pitcher service featuring such libations as mojitos, bloody marys and sangria. Cabana and daybed guests even enjoy such VIP touches as chilled cucumbers to soothe the eyes, iced towels and Evian misting bottles.
Bare’s food offerings, available daily, include everything from lighter fare to summer-suitable barbecue. Meanwhile, a DJ plays music from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
The most important amenity, though, is "our service," says Kalika Moquin, Bare’s marketing director. "It’s great and very, very intimate."
Given both its lineage and its location, it’s not surprising that Bare also tends to be a magnet for celebrities. Bare has, for instance, hosted birthday parties for Fergie and Quentin Tarantino and a concert by Slash, and has been visited by a roster of celebs that includes Britney Spears.
Yet, Moquin adds, "we’re very, very local friendly. That is a huge part of our market."
This season, Bare is holding weekly Asset Thursdays events for hospitality and nightlife workers.
Bare accommodates 500 to 600 sun-loving partyers daily, and guests must be at least 21 years old. It’s open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
Admission is $10 for women and $20 for men Mondays through Thursdays, and $20 for women and $40 for men Fridays through Sundays.
