Return of the Hotel Atrium

So one of my aesthetic preoccupations at the moment is large-scale 80s/90s hotel architecture and its reclamation after years of log-cabin/rustic design stylings. I was really pleased to see this renovation of the Mirage casino atrium in Las Vegas, which now has a well-designed restaurant in it that feels fresh and open-air due to the slatted roof and atrium glass. The restaurant replaced a super norm-core 90s tropical bar called Kokomo's, which is slightly a shame (miss u basic party bar), but the new one is a much better use of the space and light. The tropical plants on the floor of the atrium lend it a high-end Rainforest Cafe vibe, like Rainforest Cafe for grownups.
