Wynn Las Vegas makes its debut Aft cocktail deck and Bar umbrella, two distinctive lounges that feature a premium craft cocktail program. The new additions join the recently unveiled Living room overlooking to complete the Cocktail Collection on the Lac des Rêves.
“We constantly challenge ourselves to deliver unique experiences that encourage a sense of discovery for our guests,” said Brian Gullbrants, President of Wynn Las Vegas. “Our new collection of lounges offers exactly that: beautiful new spaces, spectacular cocktails, and a singular location found only at the Wynn.”
Located in the heart of the resort, the new lounges were designed by President and Chief Creative Officer of Wynn Design and Development Todd-Avery Lenahan and offer inventive cocktail menus from station mixologist Mariena Mercer Boarini.
“Aft Cocktail Deck is inspired by parties held on the backs of superyachts, while Bar Parasol is inspired by an intimate grotto in a fantasy garden,” Lenahan said. “With Overlook Lounge, the Lake of Dreams Cocktail Collection features three unique destinations and personalities.”
Located on an outdoor patio overlooking the water, terraced seating at Aft cocktail deck offers guests a prime location to catch Wynn’s flagship show, Lake of Dreams. Sporting a classic nautical color scheme of blue, white, and periwinkle, Aft Cocktail Deck features swinging lounge chairs, luxe banquettes, and nautical flags that spell “Wynn LV” flying overhead. An umbrella cover is offered in spring and summer, and seat warmers during the colder months, creating a comfortable environment for a year-round waterside experience.
“I like to be inspired by the spaces I design for, so when creating the cocktail menus for Aft Cocktail Deck and Bar Parasol, I was inspired by some of the most glamorous and revered locations in the world,” said Mercer Boarini. “I also wanted to reinvent classic cocktails to provide diners with new experiences reminiscent of familiar favorites.”
At the Aft Cocktail Deck, you can enjoy a range of inventive cocktails such as the Turks and Caicos Islandsa guava mojito with Bacardi Tropical Rum, pink guava, passion fruit, mint, fresh lime and sugar cane; the monacoa seaside spritz with Belvédère Lemon Basil Organic Vodka, St Germain elderflower liqueur, lemon verbena, fresh lemon juice, Ginger, butterfly pea flowerand finished with a spritz of Edible fragrance inspired by the Mediterranean; and the Ibizaa version of the classic Spanish carajillo made with Absolut Elyx vodka infused with Madagascar vanilla, Kahlua Blond Roasted Coffee Liqueur, Liquor43 and cold brew espresso. Small dishes such as tuna tartare, beef carpaccio, seafood platters and many more are also available.
Bar umbrella is an imaginative upgrade to its predecessor, Parasol Down, where patrons can also enjoy caviar-inspired bites and creative cocktails. Elements such as rock crystal lamps, couture trimmings and 24-karat gold gilded tiles complement the garden-inspired color palette and add a new level of opulence to the venue, while the addition of greenery creates a boundary with the surrounding resort and a sense of privacy.
Like Aft Cocktail Deck, Bar Parasol’s cocktail menu draws inspiration from iconic global destinations with offerings such as the Havanaa rum version of the Old Fashioned for two made with Rum El Dorado 12 years old, Bacardi Rum 8, Amaro Meletti, cardamom and broken and finished at the table with cherry wood smoke; and the Catalinaa green Bloody Mary with Gray Goose Vodka, Ancho Reyes Verde Chili Liqueur, Homemade Heirloom Green Tomato Bloody Mary Blend, green apple, pineapple and seaside equipment; and the Jet set, a bump of Kolikof Premium sturgeon caviar served alongside a shot of Champagne Perrier Jouët. Guests can also take a “flight” at Bar Parasol, enjoying a champagne or vodka tasting with two choices of levels for either: First Class and Upper Deck.
Aft Cocktail Deck and Bar Parasol are open Sunday through Thursday from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. Light snacks are served daily from 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Living room overlooking, the first of new lounge concepts that debuted in August 2021, offers a sanctuary in the heart of the resort’s atrium and overlooking Wynn’s Lake of Dreams waterfall. Decor in jewel tones inspired by the intricate mosaic floor of the atrium is complemented by crystal chandeliers, comfortable period furniture, stunning artwork and a classic range of vintage European design elements.
The refined cocktail menu features a series of spritzes and bespoke versions of classic cocktails that borrow the names of the most iconic personalities from fashion, film, history and mythology. The spritzes are vibrant with color and flavor and end with a mist of edible aperitif flavors inspired by the world’s hottest destinations. Menu favorites include the Evangelist with Gin Empress 1908, Elderflowers from Saint-Germain, citrus, sparkling roséfinished with the Parisian aperitif perfume; the Hudsonincluding Tequila El Tesoro Blanco, grapefruit liqueur, thyme, pink grapefruit bubblesfinished with the Milanese aperitif perfume; and the brandoa tangy version of New York made with Whistlepig Rye Whiskey, lemon, cardamom and malbec wine.
