Insider’s Guide to the Mirage
The Mirage brings a taste of the tropics Las Vegas Strip; it’s an island retreat in the desert. There’s a lot of energy here, and the staff works to make sure that every guest enjoys this tropical-themed resort. As soon as you see the palm trees lining the entryway, you know the Mirage is going to be something special. From there, it’s only steps away to the lagoon and the Volcano.

Walk through the Mirage
First stop: the gaming floor—take a trip to the tropics with the Mirage’s lushly decorated casino covers more than 100,000 square feet, complete with slots, table games, and sports book. This comfortable retreat also is home to a poker room and high-limits lounge. Art lovers will adore the sculptures from glass artist Dale Chihuly that adorn the gaming floor.
It’s like South Beach and the Caribbean were transported to the desert with these rooms. All of the resorts’ accommodations are as luxe as they are stylish. The decor mixes neutral colors with splashes of color and warm wooden accents and cool metal elements. Luxuries are plentiful, from the flat-screen LCDs to modern furniture. The suites add even more luxuries, even his-and-hers baths, luxury linens, and wet bars. For those who really love a taste of the tropics, they’ll adore staying in one of the lanai suites or private poolside villas.
Like the resort as a whole, the dining scene at the Mirage is comfortable yet classic. If you want to grab a burger or some froyo, there are plenty of choices at the Mirage. The resort also is home to the California Pizza Kitchen, New York’s classic Carnegie Deli, and other eateries that are as stylish as they are tasty. There’s also upscale restaurants and pool bars to suit the guests who want the fun of a beach vacation on the Las Vegas Strip.
All 24 hours of the day, there’s something going on at the Mirage. The entertainment scene is just what you would expect for a full-service resort, complete with big-name shows, steamy nightclubs, and happening lounges. One of the best places to soak in the views of Sin City is Rhumbar—you can almost feel the ocean breezes as you sip a mojito. For the classic club experience, try 1 Oak Las Vegas and its DJs that keep the party going all night. Another favorite nightspot, King Ink, has a great outdoor deck to take the party outdoors.
It’s no surprise that the pool complex at the Mirage is every inch a tropical paradise. There’s two saltwater pools, waterfalls and whirlpools here, along with private cabanas and mesh lounge chairs for relaxing in the sun. The water features are surrounded by amazing plants in fiery shades of yellow, red, and pink. If you’re not enjoying the good life in the cabanas, it’s just a few steps to Paradise Cafe and the Dolphin Bar for some tasty treats.
During the day, Mirage guests and those just in for a visit should check out the aquarium, Dolphin Habitat, and Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden, a lush home to the famous white tigers. The Mirage also hosts the Cirque du Soleil Beatles’ Show, LOVE, which is one of Las Vegas’ best-rated and best-attended shows. Even though there are other Cirque shows in Las Vegas, this is the only one to feature the music of the Beatles. Terry Fator, the ventriloquist who won America’s Got Talent, also plays the Mirage.
