The bar at Sage, located near the entrance of the Las Vegas restaurant, is the ideal place to go for appetizers or a signature cocktail. Wine offerings run the gamut, with varietals from California, France, Spain and New Zealand, and they pair perfectly with Cabot Clothbound Cheddar and Calabrese salami. We’d recommend sitting at the long bar to indulge in one of the signature cocktails. After enjoying a complimentary, non-alcoholic pink lemonade palate cleanser prepared using a balancier, try one of the barrel-aged cocktails, like The Empire State, made with Hudson rye whiskey, root liqueur, Punt e Mes and Angostura bitters. Or order a fun and fruity libation, like the TGV, made with Hennessey Black Cognac, pomegranate and blood orange liqueurs, fresh sour mix and orange juice or even the poblano-kiwi margarita. A full range of classic cocktails, from the Moscow Mule to the Hemingway Daiquiri, is also available. And if you couldn’t tell from the glass fountain and those balanciers located behind the bar, know that one of Sage’s most unique offerings is its selection of absinthes from around the world; if there’s sure-fire way to kick off a night in Sin City, it’s definitely with a glass of the green fairy.
