Aside from the French-American fusion fare, the main attraction at Aureole Las Vegas is the massive four-story glass-and-steel wine tower in the main dining room. However, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant inside the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino also offers two bars in case you prefer a quick drink or a more casual bite. The upstairs wine lounge has 13 seats at the bar as well as small tables with white low-slung cushioned sofas and chairs. The downstairs lounge is smaller, but you can also find seating there. Each offers a bar menu filled with tasty small plates, like tomatillo gazpacho, oysters (in season) and spicy Italian sausage.
A trip to Aureole Las Vegas’ bars wouldn’t be complete without sampling from its top-notch wine collection, which features vintage bordeaux and bottles from Italy, France, Spain, Australia and Germany, among others. If you fancy a specialty liquor, the bar also has rare grappas and boutique cognacs, as well as cocktails like the signature Charlie Palmer Bloody Mary, made with Absolut Peppar, horseradish, Dijon mustard and spicy sriracha. Relax on the white lounge chair with a glass of vino and let the hordes of tourist fight for a table near the wine tower.
