Area15, the 200,000-square-foot entertainment venue with interactive artwork, debuts on the west side of I-15 at Rancho Drive on Thursday. Only a few of the attractions inside open, with the remainder arriving in early 2021. One, a bar from Corner Bar Management, arrives tonight.

The Oddwood features cocktails in open area that surrounds a 25-foot-tall digital maple tree. The 2,500-square-foot bar sits in the Spine, the main corridor of the complex filled with giant pieces of art.

The digital tree created by Color + Light uses more than 5,000 individually programmed LED lights that line the branches. Corner Bar founder Ryan Doherty designed Oddwood as “a juxtaposition between the vibrancy of the tree and a collision of brass, bronze, and worn wood on the bar tops and other surfaces.” The lights twinkle to the beat of the music.

The lounge features cocktails such as the Willow, made with Ketel Peach & Orange, elderflower, lemon, and Champagne; Habitat made with Tito’s vodka, Borghetti espresso, vanilla syrup, heavy cream, and lavender bitters; and the Sweet Leaf, made with Avua Balsamo, poppyseed amaro, lemon, cucumber, and basil. All go for $12. Oddwood also features a limited menu from The Beast Pop-Up Experience by Todd English.
