Mynt-y Fresh

December 17 2004, 9:48 PM

Mynt True Lounge has just received a makeover. Not in the "Extreme Makeover" sense that we've all grown to love/hate. This is less a serious hack job, and more of a mild "Trading Spaces" update. Welcome to the new version, Mynt Mojito Lounge. To celebrate the third anniversary of the sleek cocktail lounge, the remodel is less streamlined and mod, and more comfortable and exotic. The too-bright lights and minimalist white furniture it previously featured actually turned some people off because of its stark austerity. The space now sports a Latin tropical vibe - perfect for sipping rum drinks with sugarcane stirrers; think fuschia, purple, bold greens, funky silver lighting and plenty of booty-shakin' Latin House spun by DJs nightly. This Saturday night, marketing maven Paulina Szafranski has whipped up a fashion fete in honor of the new look, featuring the couture designs of Denver's own Gabriel Conroy. Pop in for free mojitos from 9 - 10 p.m. and soak up the warmth of the sultry new surroundings.
