The lights are on at Republic Reign, but these spindly chandeliers might be the only things ready for business. Despite missing its own New Years Eve party, the press team at the high-end lounge insists it will be open in a few weeks as promised. It looks behind schedule but its priorities are in the right place. Long bars (inside and out) already have a strong presence in the former Chai's Lounge space and the cocktail list, which leaked in October, boasts a VIP vibe with bottle service, carafed spritzes, and cocktails on draft.
Design firm Mister Important, responsible for flashy lounges in Las Vegas, Dubai, and San Diego, has already left its mark on the nearly
unfinished restaurant with luxe touches, like glossy snake skin and stitched leather furniture. As for the palm tree and wooden-laden deck? Now it's a far cry from the rendering, but it could be an outdoor lounge worthy of some beachside paradise.
