With glitter walls, late fifties salon chairs, and two stages, one inside and one outside Beauty Bar is fun, entertaining, and unique.

Daniel Parlin




Daniel Parlin is our fun and knowledgeable mixologist of the week. Originally hailing from Boston, Daniel moved to Las Vegas in 2003 for Light Group, attended UNLV, and graduated from UNLV with a degree in Criminal Justice. Having worked behind the bar for nearly 15 years he has gained recognition in the book, 101 Best New Cocktails of 2014 by Gaz Regan for his Pisco Fever. He has also received his Cicerone Level 1, Professional Bartender Certification from Southern Wine and Spirits, USBG Spirits Professional Certification, and SWE Certified Specialist of Spirits Certification.



While Daniel wears many hats behind the bar, you can catch him making fresh and delicious cocktails all over the city, mostly at the Cosmopolitan, on special nights at Beauty Bar downtown, and helping at events for SWS and Liquid Arts. Daniel's extensive knowledge of mixology and spirits is an added bonus to his friendly and welcoming personality behind the bar. Daniel created some fresh fruit margaritas for us using Maestro Dobel and Solerno. Visit Daniel at Cosmopolitan or First Fridays at Beauty Bar and enjoy one of his creative cocktails!
