Outdoor Entertainment: Rendezvous at the Park
New outdoor entertainment and dining district will offer an alfresco respite.
After a day of indoor meetings, fresh air outdoors is often desired. MGM Resorts International is developing an outdoor neighborhood environment called The Park, where cobblestone walkways and landscaped spaces will connect New York-New York and Monte Carlo resorts.
MGM Resorts is transforming more than 8 acres of outdoor space into a tree-lined parkway that leads to a new 20,000-seat arena being developed in conjunction with AEG.
Visitors will be able to enjoy the 320 days of sunshine Las Vegas is known for, with options for dining, entertainment and shopping. In the evenings, The Park will be illuminated to allow for live music and open-air dining, with several new restaurant brands, such as Bruxie, a gourmet waffle restaurant; Sake Rok, a sushi restaurant and late-night bar; a Robert Mondavi Jr. wine experience; and Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row country bar and restaurant.
The project will implement environmentally sustainable aspects and incorporate native desert landscaping. Completion is scheduled for 2016.
MGM Resorts also recently announced a partnership with Rock in Rio, the world’s biggest music festival, Cirque du Soleil and Ron Burkle (The Yucaipa Companies). Rock in Rio’s U.S. debut will be in Las Vegas in May 2015, and its combination of the biggest names in music with a fully immersive entertainment experience will redefine the modern music festival for U.S. audiences. Located at the Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard intersection, the 33-acre, open-air concert venue will have 80,000-person capacity.
