The Dramatic Lights Inside One Steakhouse Will Keep Diners Mesmerized for Hours

When brothers Michael and David Morton decided to renovate their former MB Steak into One Steakhouse, they chose to make the biggest design changes to the front lounge and dining room. MB Steak felt more reclusive with an entrance closed to the casino floor, a tiny lounge at the front, and a speakeasy feel. Just trying to find the way into the steakhouse could be a challenge.

Now the revamped 9,000-square-foot steakhouse at Virgin Hotels practically blends into the casino floor with an inviting open entrance, dreamy lighting in the lounge that morphs colors through the night, and a handsome dining room with distinctly feminine touches to give it a whimsical air.

A stunning LED light over the lounge features more than 3,000 pieces of glass that gradually change from white to pink to purple and more. Instead of the cozy lounge, room for 100. A winding bar now features a leather bar top.

The dining room melds handsome woods with whimsical pieces of art, including cloches with mystical pieces inside. “A venue like this is a departure from reality,” Jenna Morton says. “Especially after this pandemic, you’re often eating at home. If you go out to eat it, we’re pulling out for something special, and you’re getting away.”

Executive chef Patrick Munster says the menu gives him a chance to interact with diners more often with table-side dishes. A Japanese grill brings surf-and-turf dishes to the table with dramatic smoke. Munster carves other steaks such as a porterhouse, tomahawk, or Chateaubriand table side. “It’s fun for me because people see a chef and they’re like, ‘I’ve been wanting to ask this food question for three years,’ and they finally get to.”

Upstairs, the atrium bar remains, now with cantilevered windows that can open. The 50-person lounge now has a giant 12-foot by 8-foot LED screen that can show one game or many while customers order a bottle of wine.
