Rumjungle is many things to many people -- an awesome cocktail lounge, a trendy restaurant, and a happening nightspot. We enjoyed its cocktail-lounge aura on an early evening before the crowds arrived. Juxtaposing actual fire and water (both are everywhere throughout the space), the space ensconces you in its black, cavernous surroundings, like so much of Mandalay Bay.

Vegas is over the top, and this place transports you to the next level. Any place built on rum drinks can't be that bad, especially when the rum drinks are served in 16-ounce glasses. Go for it! And if you like it, go for it twice. Each of the specialty drinks we sampled was as good as the one before, so I would imagine you can let your senses take over and you will do fine.

The place drew a varied crowd. While we were there, we saw a wedding reception going strong, couples on dates, and groups looking for another diversion in Vegas. All seemed happy! The food looked spectacular. We had conch fritters. While not typically Vegas, they were wonderful and added to the feeling that we have been whisked out of the desert and onto some remote Pacific isle (loaded up with fashionable people, of course!) Heather was a fun bartender who made sure we started the evening on the right note! We returned later in the evening, but elected to not explore Rumjungle after it had turned into a nightclub with a cover.
