All that jazz (and pancakes, too)

Weekends are made for brunching. Add a little music to the mix and there’s even more reason to put on your Sunday best and visit NoMad Bar, where a jazz band complements the exceptional food and beverage menu by chef Daniel Humm and bar director Leo Robitschek. Culinary highlights include lemon-poppy seed ricotta pancakes, a smoked fish flatbread, avocado toast, a breakfast burrito with suckling pig and a selection of salads. Or simply lounge on the deep bourdeaux velvet sofas with a handcrafted Bloody Mary or a freshly brewed coffee and take in the sounds of the band.

This month’s featured act is the acclaimed sextet The Hot Club of Las Vegas, whose trademark gypsy jazz — a combination of swing, flamenco and musette — will have you humming and scatting along. Amid the NoMad Bar’s plush Parisian-inspired interiors, there’s no better way to end (or start) the week.

The Nomad Bar in Park MGM, 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sundays.
