The Bellagio’s 24-hour Petrossian Bar & Lounge returns to the lobby of the resort after a remodel that started in August. Still part of the scene, live music from the one-of-a-kind Steinway grand and that view of Dale Chihuly’s 2000 hand-blown glass flowers, Fiori di Como in the lobby.
The revamped bar offers hand-made infused cocktails, a vodka sampler, and after noon tea daily from 1 to 4 p.m. That comes with open-faced sandwiches, English tea sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream, Baxter’s preserves, assorted miniature pastry treats, and, teas imported from around the world.
Live music includes piano favorites from David Osborne, the pianist to the presidents. Osborne has performed at the White House for Presidents Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama.
Newcomers on the drinks list include tea-infused cocktails such as the Knights in White Satin, made with Masala Chai-infused Selvarey White Rum, Chateau Arton Blanche Armagnac, Italicus Bergamot, Cointreau, almond orgeat, and lemon; and the Mariner & Mule with Roku Gin, matcha green tea, ginger and lime, topped with yuzu soda. Petrossian Bar also has revamped several old hotel bar classic cocktails including Le Salty Dog, made with Grey Goose Le Citron, Giffard Pamplemousses, grapefruit, and Himalayan pink salt; and the Conservatory Cup made with Spring 44 Vodka, Pimm’s No 1, English cucumber, ginger, and lemon.
Petrossian Bar, Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard S., 702-693-7111. Open 24 hours daily.
