Muddle Bar & Wine Cellar
At deseo, Muddle Drinks go far beyond the average Mojito. Created by smashing together the freshest fruits and herbs to release their intense flavors with a wooden mallet called a "muddler," build a custom Muddle drink and add a spirit of your choice to enjoy a truly unique beverage. When selecting a wine to sip over conversation or pair perfectly with a dinner entree, deseo’s collection of over 275 different labels along with our very own wine expert will surely provide an array of choices to ensure the most pleasurable wine experience.
Nelson Garcia-Miranda, an associate of The Westin Kierland, also holds great recognition for being a renowned Cuban artist. Nelson shares his passion by painting live in deseo during Unwind every Tuesday through Saturday evening. His work is currently on display at deseo, and is a perfect compliment to the restaurant, which is a celebration of Latino cuisine and culture.
