We feel this is a perfect way to expand our brand,” says owner and managing partner Ray Nisi.

Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge at Town Square Las Vegas will host its public grand opening on Thursday, July 21, 2011, from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Admission is free and guests can enjoy a complimentary selection of wines, champagne, whiskeys, custom cocktails and an array of items from the tasting plates menu.
The 2,800-square-foot restaurant is located across from Rave Motion Pictures and below Johnny McGuire’s Deli. It features a full bar that offers more than 30 unique wines by the glass, 50 whiskeys, sampler flights and Double Helix’s signature “winetails.”
The wine and spirit-friendly small-plates tasting menu features shareable, melt-in-your-mouth dishes that satisfy any craving for $15 or less. The menu was created by Chef Doug Vega and includes charcuterie and cheese boards, flatbreads, and a range of gourmet comfort food dishes such as shrimp and grits, meatballs, bacon-wrapped mini Kobe dogs and ice cream sundae samplers.
Patrons can dine inside or outside on the patio, which features a fire pit, cooling mister system and ultra-comfortable lounge-style furniture. Televisions showing key sporting events are located inside and on the patio.
The lounge opens at 3:00 p.m. daily, plus lunch Thursday-Sunday. Daily happy hours from 3:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. feature 1/2 off select wines, whiskeys, tasting plates and desserts. Moviegoers can show their Rave Motion Pictures ticket to receive glasses of Double Helix Wine for $5. Both wine and whiskey enthusiasts can enjoy barrel tastings, visiting producers, tastings and pairing dinners. The patio is also available for private tastings and special events.
Double Helix Las Vegas will further expand this fall. In October, it will debut Bottles & Burgers by Double Helix, a 5,000-square-foot, double-terraced addition to Summerlin’s Tivoli Village. As its name implies, the casual concept will feature inspired burger creations with half-bottles of wine, bottles of beer, and Double Helix’s own line of “old-school” bottled sodas.
