    The Outer Rim At The Contemporary

    I thought I read some where that the Outer Rim Lounge is closing and the space will be taken over by Chef Mickey's expanding over there. Does anyone know if this is for sure true and when this is supposed to happen? This is a frequent relaxation watering hole for my husband and I and we would be sad to see it go!

    The old Outer Rim Lounge closed last year. A new one is to go where the temporary Grab & Go counter service was.

    I'm not sure if CM took over the Outer Rim space as for some reason I can't picture where it was - I though CM annexed the Concourse Steakhouse space.

    You will be happy to know, then, that the Outer Rim has reopened. It is smaller than it used to be and has been pushed down to where the old television area showing Disney cartoons used to be, but it is still a nice place for adults to relax with the same view.

    I share you appreciation and was also disappointed at the thought that the only lounge at the Contemporary would be the trendy Wave. Don't get me wrong, one of the best meals I have had in the past year was at the Wave last August. The lounge just does not appeal to me, though.

    So glad to hear the Outer Rim has reopened. I look forward to visiting it
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    We actually did the monorail bar tour on Friday and stopped there. It's pretty small, and there was a loud hum...like it is on top of or next to a very large HVAC unit...you can see a bit of the pool and the lake from it.
