The Double Helix Wine and Whiskey Bar at Town Square celebrated its third anniversary on June 19, 2014 with a special reception.

 

The grilled carne asada tacos were delicious

 

 Invited guests were treated to wine, signature cocktails, freshly grilled carne asada, and chicken tacos as well as alcohol infused snow cones.

The 2,800 square foot lounge is located adjacent to the AMC movie theaters in Town Square Center on the far south end of The Strip.  It features over 40 unique wines, 100 whiskey labels, signature cocktails, and an extensive small plate menu.

 

 

The diverse menu, developed by Chef Doug Vega, includes meatballs, a variety of sliders, seared yellow fin tuna and a variety of gluten free items, many for under $16. Chef Doug Vega, whose previous experience includes Daniel Boulud's DB Brasserie, has created a menu with gourmet comfort food to complement the wine and spirits. 

 

Guests had the opportunity to sample many of the drinks

 

Signature cocktails include the Sangria Martina which consists of red wine, Orange vodka, blackberry brandy, apple pucker and secret spice. There are several other interesting and tasty concoctions on the menu.

Many customers choose to relax with a whiskey or brandy in the pet and cigar friendly outdoor patio.  The patio contains a cooling mister system and a beautiful fire pit-conducive for conversation.

 

General Manager Michael Pierotti welcomed Producers Andy Walmsley and Mark Bennick to the celebration

 

The Double Helix features a liquid brunch from 11 AM till 3 PM every Saturday and Sunday.  It features almost bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys as well as Happy Hour pricing on cocktails and wine.  Spanish omelets and steak and eggs are the featured dishes.

 

Guests were invited to walk the red carpet

 

Happy Hours run from 3:30 -7:30 PM weekdays and 11:00AM -7:30 PM weekends and are a great time to visit Double Helix.  During Happy Hours, wine is $7 a glass or less, while signature cocktails are $10 or less.  Most food items are under $10.
