In the heart of Las Vegas, at the illustrious Bellagio Hotel, lies The Mayfair Supper Club – a place where culinary artistry and theatrical enchantment intertwine. On a recent visit, my colleague Jeremy and I were privileged to immerse ourselves in its allure.
The Mayfair isn’t just a supper club; it’s an otherworldly realm, inspired by mythology and the enchanting tales of Neptune. The interior is a masterpiece of design by Martin Brudnizki, evoking the depths and mysteries of the ocean. A statement bar crowned with a sea-green Murano glass canopy serves as a focal point, while coral-inspired wall lights and scalloped-edge banquettes add to the underwater fantasy. The walls, adorned with ceramic shells, transport guests to an opulent, Neptune-esque kingdom. The rich layering of textures and colors creates a decadent and sophisticated setting that’s perfect for an evening of indulgence and dance.
As my colleague Jeremy and I stepped into the renowned Bellagio Hotel, we were immediately drawn into the mesmerizing world of The Mayfair Supper Club. The moment we entered, the enchanting sounds of Mrs. B’s performance greeted us, her voice weaving through the air, complemented by an array of musical pleasures and captivating dance. This introduction set the tone for what was to be an evening of unparalleled culinary and theatrical opulence. The exceptional Leilani and Joel assisted us through our journey. The ambiance was reminiscent of the golden age of Hollywood, with a touch of old Vegas glamour, this was setting the stage for an amazing culinary experience.
Our culinary voyage at The Mayfair was as impressive as the surroundings. The Mayfair Roll, an innovative take on sushi, let the freshness of the fish shine, with a dramatic flame upon serving adding to its allure. Accompanying this was the Hamachi Crudo, a delicate harmony of sashimi-style fish and a surprising hint of grapefruit, adding a refreshing twist to each bite.
As we savored these appetizers, Jeremy’s Copacabana cocktail, a tropical blend of flavors, provided a delightfully smooth start to our evening. My choice, the Cloud 9, was a sweet, effervescent champagne concoction, topped with cotton candy, creating a visually stunning and palate-pleasing first drink.
Before our main course, we were treated to the enthralling musical performances by the Mayfair Trio. The “Luck Be My Lady” number, perfectly synchronized with the Bellagio fountains, was a captivating display of auditory and visual harmony, enhancing the anticipation for our main dishes.
As we were captivated by their astounding perfoamnce, main course was heating up in the kitchen and soon was by our table side. Jeremy’s main course was the Garlic Crusted Prime Rib with Crab Oscar, a flawless surf and turf combination. The prime rib, cooked to tender perfection with a delicious garlic crust, paired beautifully with the delicate crab. Freshly cut and served right by our sides. His drink, the Smoked Old Fashioned, added a smoky depth that complemented his meal wonderfully.
I indulged in the Maine Lobster Thermidor, an exquisite blend of succulent lobster, rich Gruyère, and mushroom duxelle. Paired with The Lola, a refreshingly sweet cocktail with a cucumber twist, it was a culinary experience to remember. Together, we shared the Truffle Pasta, a creamy and luxurious interlude to our main courses.
Even though our taste buds were filled, we couldn’t escape our journey without the final sweets. For dessert, Jeremy chose the Carajillo, an espresso cocktail that rejuvenated our spirits, preparing us for the night ahead in Vegas. We both relished in the ‘The Cigar’, a unique dessert with a smoky chocolate flavor that surprised and delighted. The Cherry Jubilee, a balance of sweet and savory, was a refreshing treat. My Espresso Martini, paired with the dessert, was a rich and smooth conclusion to an extraordinary meal.
Throughout the evening, Manager Andy and his team ensured that our experience was nothing short of phenomenal. From the exquisite dishes to the theatrical performances, The Mayfair Supper Club proved to be more than a dining destination; it was a celebration of the senses. In the heart of Las Vegas, The Mayfair stands as a testament to the city’s allure – a place where culinary artistry, theatrical spectacle, and luxurious ambiance converge to create an unforgettable adventure into opulence and fantasy.
