Ask the Ex­pert


Where Las Vegas - - THE GUIDE | ATTRACTIONS + TOURS - Bev­erly Gal­lagher Concierge at The Mi­rage.

Q: What is a don’t miss spot for a first time Vegas vis­i­tor?

A: If you’re step­ping foot in Las Vegas for the very first time, you ab­so­lutely have to visit the Foun­tains of Bel­la­gio. The foun­tains dance beau­ti­fully to mu­sic ev­ery day and it’s one of the most iconic lo­ca­tions in the city.

Q: What is your fa­vorite Las Vegas photo-op spot in town?

A: With­out a doubt, the best place to snap a photo is from one of the pods on the High Roller at The Linq. You get an amazing view of the Strip. Try go­ing at night.

Q: Tell me about your fa­vorite hid­den gem in Las Vegas.

A: The Ethel M Choco­late Fac­tory and Botan­i­cal Cac­tus Garden is such a great spot and hid­den gem.

Q: Where should I eat if I want to cel­e­brate a spe­cial oc­ca­sion?

A: I’d def­i­nitely rec­om­mend Portofino at The Mi­rage. En­joy a glass of wine, a great bowl of pasta and the peo­ple around you and it’s the per­fect en­vi­ron­ment.

Q: What has been your most un­usual re­quest as a concierge?

A: I get all types of re­quests, but I’ve had guests ask me, more than once, to ar­range spe­cial ac­cess in­side the cage of the white tigers at Siegfried & Roy’s Se­cret Garden. Since I can’t make that hap­pen, I al­ways share the won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ences they can have at The Mi­rage.

Q: Who is your fa­vorite Las Vegas celebrity chef?

A: I ab­so­lutely adore José An­drés be­cause of his culi­nary skills and hi­lar­i­ous per­son­al­ity.

Q: What is your best Las Vegas tip?

A: If you’re in­ter­ested in see­ing shows dur­ing your visit, I’d rec­om­mend speak­ing with your re­sort’s concierge team to get the best deals. It’s your concierge’s job to know all there is to know about the Strip and des­ti­na­tion. They’re def­i­nitely the peo­ple you want to talk to.
