Rhumbar at the Mirage takes the best of the islands, their drinks, attitude and music, and situates it right on the Las Vegas Strip. The indoor bar is cool and white, lined with different bottles of run, but it is the outdoor patio that is the main draw at Rhumbar. Upbeat live jazz and Rasta music is accompanied by steel drums and saxophone and there is seating for plenty.
