Vic's lounge is the setting of the Bashir 62 holoprogram that was created by Felix for Julian Bashir. Vic Fontaine would perform in the Las Vegas lounge for the crew of Deep Space 9. The lounge is always available as the program runs continuously.
The lounge was based on the real Vic's lounge that was located in the Dunes Hotel. On October 1, 1993, Roberta Lincoln met Shannon O'Donnel there to pass on more information to Area 51 to help them in the construction of the SS Botany Bay.
