On March 5, Town & Country invited a few friends to Solaire Resort & Casino for our first Theatrical Dine Around. A spin-off of our Dine Around, we took our special guests to dinner at Solaire’s fabulous signature restaurants Red Lantern, Yakumi, and Finestra before seeing The Phantom of the Opera.

Before the festivities started, cocktails commenced at Solaire’s newly opened The Cigar Bar & Poker Room where Phantom-themed cocktails with names like Music of the Night, Secret of Darkness, and Behind the Mask were served. The Cigar Bar’s intimate atmosphere made for the perfect setting. Scroll down for a look inside.

Located beneath the casino floor, The Cigar Bar & Poker Room is one of Solaire’s newest offerings.
