Bagatelle, the French-Mediterranean bistro known for their wild champagne parties and delectable brunch menu, will be extending the party to a new Las Vegas location. In addition to their already established Vegas location and venues in New York, Los Angeles, St. Barths, and Sao Paolo, Brazil, Bagatelle Beach, an outdoor addition of Bagatelle Las Vegas made for a champagne-fueled daytime party, will open on Cinco de Mayo weekend.
Bagatelle owners Aymeric Clemente and Remi Laba made sure that their new “South of France-meets-Las Vegas oasis” would be set up for poolside dining and bottle service, according to a release. Surrounding two pools will be a “St. Tropez –inspired playground” consisting of two regulation sand volleyball courts (which can be accommodated for other sports as well), two full-service bars, daybeds to dance or lay on, and a 1,500 sq. foot stage for live music and DJ sets.
If you want your own personal playground, you can go VIP and get a private cabana with a flat screen TV, surround sound, a mini fridge, and of course, bottle service. The most private VIP option includes its own private Jacuzzi and a “birds’ eye view” of the “beach bash.”
But with every champagne party comes some delicious food to drunkenly nosh on, and Bagatelle Beach definitely has quite a selection. Executive Chef John Zamarchi tailored the menu for outdoor eating with an array of Mediterranean-inspired dishes to be served poolside. It consists of appetizers such as fresh snapper ceviche and jumbo shrimp cocktail, and main courses such as BBQ chicken flatbread, the “hangover helper” (bacon, egg, and cheese on a croissant), and a Thai steak salad with soy marinated steak, pickled carrots, roasted peanuts, and a ginger miso vinaigrette.
Even better is the extensive cocktail menu with a bunch of libations including the Mojitelle with Bacardi rum, mint, lime juice, sparkling wine, and simple syrup; the Sangri-Le with peach ginger liqueur, wine, and seasonal fruit; the A’Riki Tiki with banana and pineapple rums; and a variety of traditional drinks.
Bagatelle Beach will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday to Sunday. They hope to expand to future locations including St. Tropez, Dubai, Miami, and London.
