AURA Ultra Lounge – Sneak Peek

07
Thanks to Chase Boytim and partners, Shreveport-Bossier residents and visitors have a new downtown lounge to frequent. Housed on Texas St in the old Chicky’s Boom Boom Room which was the old Mable’s, AURA is helping to bring the sexy back to downtown Shreveport.

Sexy comes in the form of a dimly lit, 5000 square foot space filled with two full bars, Edison style light bulbs, colorful LED signs, upstairs VIP section, LED lit shelves, wine barrel tables, televisions, and more.

Sexy even spills over into the drinks, which will include high-end cocktails such as Pina Colada-Tinis, Bourbon Barrel Smoked Old Fashioneds, Mezcal Smoke-Eater, and others.

Smoke is not a typo in the Old Fashioneds and Mezcal. AURA will have smoked dranks. Chips of wine and bourbon barrels will be burned to create smoke and flavor for several drinks on the menu. If cocktails don’t tickle your fancy, craft beer and wine are on the menu. For my wine drinkers that have visited other Chase Boytim establishments, I am proud to say that Chase has moved away from the mini bottles of Sutter Homes wines. You will find Mumm Napa Champagne, Ruffino Prosecco, Argyle Pinot Noir, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, and even Las Rocas Garnacha. For the ballers and shot callers, AURA’s bottle service is flexing with Absolute Elyx, Ciroc, Grey Goose, Jameson, Crown Royal, and Louis Roederer Cristal.

Of course live music will be in the place, but DJs will also frequent AURA. The televisions that I mentioned earlier won’t be hooked up to cable to catch the latest show, game, or political debate. They will broadcast video DJing with DJs mixing with music videos. How cool is that? This is not your neighborhood bar. That’s what Fatty’s is for. This is an Ultra Lounge. AURA Ultra Lounge!

Big Freedia the Queen Diva will kick off the live shows and grand opening weekend at AURA on Friday, June 17 at 11pm. Cha Wa will hit the stage Saturday at 10pm. Bottle service/VIP section is available at both shows.

More details about AURA are coming soon but stay tuned to my Facebook page today at 4pm for live video of some of AURA’s cocktails.
