Fountain-side dining got a big bump on New Year’s Eve when The Mayfair Supper Club debuted at the Bellagio. The new venue combines entertainment and dining with an ever-changing roster of music and dancing meant to entice diners to stick around all night. The view of the Fountains at Bellagio only adds to the setting.
On the entertainment side of the venue, the evening starts with “Cavi-Hour,” a happy hour featuring a pianist, caviar specials, sharable entrees, and cocktails overlooking the fountains. Once the sun sets, male and female vocalists backed by a band perform jazz numbers. Later in the evening, every singer, dancer, bartender, and waiter becomes part of the production as actors interact with a 360-degree light show that takes over the restaurant. On Fridays and Saturdays from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m., a late-night menu, deejays, live music, and more performers take over the venue. Starting on January 5, the venue features a jazz dinner.
On the food side, dishes such as a wagyu hand roll with caviar layered with horseradish cream, tonkatsu sauce, and a gold leaf as well as a scallop baked in the shell with black truffle and seaweed butter sourced from Normandy start the meal. The Mayfair offers table side service such as a Mishima Farms wagyu prime rib slow roasted for seven hours and Dover sole Veronique, deboned and finished with a brown butter sauce, Champagne, and fresh grapes at the table. One touted dessert, the Cigar, an edible chocolate and hazelnut cigar showpiece that arrives vanilla-smoked under a glass cloche.
Of course, the supper club also offers cocktails, such as the Lemon Drop, which is poured into a citrus bubble that pops and releases scents into the drink, and three original versions of smoked Old Fashioneds, including one with a ginger-infused maple whiskey.
The Mayfair Supper Club, Bellagio, 3600 Las Vegas Boulevard S., 702-693-8561 Open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m.
