Bahama Breeze

It’s winter in Las Vegas and the holidays are over. We’re in the middle of a string of days with below-freezing temps and cabin fever is rapidly setting in. Time to get out of the winter doldrums before Prozac is the only escape.

If you happen to be a Las Vegas local, you might head to a casino to kill some time playing video poker until it warms up outside, or perhaps jump in the car and head to California for a few days. And then, there’s the Bahamas–Vegas style.

We recently accepted a timely invitation to join the hospitable folks at Bahama Breeze for cocktails and appetizers, and are very glad we did. A tasty tropical cocktail can be found anywhere in Las Vegas, but not like the drinks they’re making here. These aren’t the syrupy-sweet tropical drinks served at other theme restaurants. Juices squeezed from fresh fruit, and refreshing sugar cane juice extracted on-the-spot using a fascinating machine we’ve never seen before are the stars of many of the rum-based tropical beverages

Exceptional cocktails deserve exceptional appetizers. We particularly enjoyed the savory, curry-scented beef empanadas and the caveman-sized Jamaican jerk wings. Enormous coconut-crusted shrimp served with a citrusy dipping sauce were the best version of this often poorly executed dish we’ve ever had.

Service from an upbeat, thoughtful staff as well as a tasteful Caribbean-themed decor (as opposed to the silly tropical themed restaurants on the Strip) made for an extremely pleasant break from our mid-winter blues. Shame on us for taking so long to discover this gem located on the corner of Hughes Center Drive and Flamingo, just a few minutes from the Strip.
