Religion's influence is undeniable, providing the world with wars, works of art, and that many more chicks to bone, since A.C. Green's, like, reading a comic book about god. And now, Vegas-worthy debauchery, thanks to Nu Sanctuary.
Located at Town Square, Nu's a religious-ish-themed Mediterranean restaurant/ultralounge with a "Salvador Dali-inspired" design highlighted by a giant LED-lit tree splaying roots and branches into all corners, a "Last Supper" interpretation w/ random people thrown in, and huge video screens spurting differing imagery which combines with music/lights to divide the space into "Heaven" and "Hell", though later in the evening that distinction will mostly depend on whose table you've invaded. Start things off with "Steak and Eggs" beef carpaccio (thinly shaved filet mignon, avocado, fried egg, black truffle) or crab falafel with chipotle mayo, tzatziki, and ginger miso aioli, then move onto mains like the Taleggio cheese-stuffed "Spring Chicken" wrapped in prosciutto & lemon beurre blanc, and seared yellowfin with sake, lemongrass, and steamed bok choy called "Buddah Gone Fishing", but he diligently released Four Noble Youths. Bottle service buttresses mouthwatering cocktails like the "Zeus" (Le Tourment Absinthe/fresh lemon juice/sweet syrup/fresh sage); the oversized "Nu Confessional" combining four rums (151, Dragon Berry, Peach Red, Meyers Dark) with Monin Acai, fresh blood orange juice, and sweet syrup; and pitchers of their "Elixirs" like the triple-tangerine-vodka/Cointreau/Absolut Mandarin "Nu Tang", also a soft drink reformulation that despite a huge marketing push, never caught on in Skylab.
They're also stocked with hookahs boasting flavors like vanilla & orange "Heaven Gate", cinnamon/cappuccino/salvia "Eternal Fire", and the the orange/cherry/tequila "Demonic Sunrise", also what A.C. Green called that fateful day when he woke up early, grabbed the paper, and the bra section of Sears catalog tumbled out into his Kix.
