Heck, even though we’re in the middle of a desert, the islands are calling. Rhumbar at The Mirage re-creates an idyllic island setting where guests can sip on tropical cocktails and puff on their favorite cigar—all while enjoying an indoor/outdoor setting filled with lush greenery and views of the iconic Mirage volcano.

Of course, rum is the name of the game when it comes to Rhumbar’s cocktail menu. There’s a mix of classic and tropical-inspired cocktails, and guests can go traditional by ordering the signature Rhumbar mojito, mixed with rum, mint and lime. Or opt for a classic island treat, the 1944 Mai Tai made with Avuá Amburana Cachaça and Cointreau. For something more fruit-forward, try the guava daiquiri that mixes rum with fresh guava and pineapple juices. If there’s a group, order the Volcano Bowl, a sweet, tiki-inspired punch filled with four different rums. Rhumbar also offers some of the most delicious frozen cocktails, perfect for the warmer temps taking over Las Vegas, and guests can also choose from one of the largest selections of rums on the Strip.

But it’s not all about libations at this lounge. Rhumbar is known for both affordable and high-end cigar offerings, everything from Davidoff to Arturo Fuente brands. Guests can also delight in cigar-and-cocktail pairings. For those that want to start out light, try the Dos Maderas PX 5 + 5 rum paired with a Padron 1926 Series No. 2 Belicoso cigar, which results in an earthy aroma with hints of vanilla and coffee. Toasty and spicy tobacco comes from the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story cigar paired with an Angostura five-year rum. For those looking for a spicy kick paired with a sweet and syrupy rum, order the Davidoff Special Series R cigar and El Dorado 15-year rum. Just ask your server for more rum-and-cigar pairings that have been carefully curated based on your favorite cigar and rum flavors.

While most enjoy the tranquil, low-key, beachy scene of Rhumbar, perfect for cocktails and conversation, Rhumbar does offer multiple TVs for sports viewing, and invites live musical acts and DJs to perform on most weekends. But if you’re looking for that oasis in the desert, complete with cocktails and cigar in hand, Rhumbar has long been calling visitors to its special slice of paradise.
