It's almost as if this lounge tucked inside Portofino Ristorante at The Mirage doesn't want to be found. However, the oak barrels stacked up to create a striking display in front of the restaurant should clue you in that this is a place for wine lovers. Step in and you'll be enchanted by the chic white-hued décor, Tuscan chandeliers, wood fixtures and dim lighting (which also gives the impression this is a secret spot).
Sip on dozens of wines offered by the glass at Portofino Lounge. Or go for one of the inventive flights including a sparkling wine flight, an Italian white wine flight, a traditional white wine flight,a red and blue fruit wine flight, and a red and black fruit wine flight. A select menu of Chef Michael LaPlaca's Italian appetizers are available in here as well.
Portofino Lounge is a relaxing (and romantic) refuge from the noisy casino. Unfortunately, after writing this, Portofino Lounge may no longer be a hidden gem...but we thought it's only fair to share.
