Located in the center of the Rio 's main casino pit, I-Bar is a unique venue with refined sophistication and subtle allure. The bar's décor is a celebration of its namesake, Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro . It combines natural elements of earth, rock and water with stunning lighting and sleek lines, setting the tone for this upscale lounge.
In addition to offering a full bar, I-Bar features 12 signature cocktails, sporting such tantalizing names as Tropical Hypnosis, Peachy Keen, Exotic Spice and Passion Pulse. Each sophisticated cocktail will feature an intricate, whimsical garnish, handmade with exotic fruits, tailored to accent each drink as a pair of stylish shoes complements a beautiful outfit.
I-Bar also features its beautiful I-Girls. Each of these 10 models is adorned in an exquisite flesh-colored costume, trained to move with the rhythmic sounds
of I-Bar. More than just eye candy, the I-Girls are trained mixologists and ambassadors of the Rio , providing cocktail and bottle service upon request.
I-Bar's mood changes with the various times of the day. It opens with an embrace of Las Vegas history with an extensive mix of Rat Pack-style tunes
and a display of iconic Las Vegas images on the surrounding flat screens.
In the early evening, the mood shifts with an exhibit of natural images and a move toward down-tempo, chill-out, rare groove music, sprinkled with recognizable artists such as Jamiroquai and Moby, along with house remixes
of Aretha Franklin and Dinah Washington -- described as soulful house with a world flavor.
As the sky darkens, a sensual collage of erotic imagery surrounds guests, and the music shifts to the sounds of up-beats and lounge-style house.
