If you see N9NE Group co-founder Michael Morton (yes, like the steakhouse chain, that was started by his dad, Arnie Morton) walking through Wynn Las Vegas sometime soon, don’t stop and ask if he needs directions. Morton isn’t lost. He’s working.
Morton, whose nightlife and dining company has thus far been exclusive to the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, is slated to open up a new wine bar inside the Wynn this fall in the space adjacent to the Terrace Pointe Café. A release from the property claims the as-yet-unnamed swill and sip spot will “elevate the celebration of wine to a multi-sensory experience including food, mood, and music with innovative design features.”
Here's what your senses will actually experience: Morton’s new venture will feature a wide range of wines from around the world, as well as artisanal beers, crafted cocktails and gourmet nibbles like house-made charcuterie, various cheeses, grilled tapas and bite-sized desserts. The bar’s soundtrack is planned to match its wine list with music from such famous wine-producing countries as France, Spain, Argentina and Australia. No word yet on whether Californian or Oregonian bands will make the list.
With world-class dining, shopping, spas, golf and entertainment, there's no shortage of things to do at Wynn. The resort’s aquatic acrobatic show, “Le Reve—The Dream,” a creation by Cirque Du Soleil veteran Franco Dragone and Steve Wynn, will leave guests wanting more with its breathtaking performances that conjure an imaginary world. The Wynn Esplanade offers a unique shopping experience with stores including Chanel, Manolo Blahnik, Christian Dior, Oscar de la Renta and many more. Tryst is its signature nightclub, offering a secluded lagoon inside the club and spacious dance floor. Blush, the Wynn’s ultra lounge, draws swanky party-goers. Tryst, Wynn’s signature nightclub, is situated along a private lagoon under a 90-foot waterfall and plays host to some of the world’s most renown DJs.
