Eataly’s sixth U.S. location opened at Park MGM just as 2018 came to an end. The 40,000-square-foot culinary destination is located directly on the Las Vegas Strip and will serve as Park MGM’s main entrance.
Eataly is a vibrant space full of unique food counters, bars, cafés and dining experiences offering traditional, authentic Italian food. This is the venue inside Park MGM that I’ve been most looking forward to. Eataly is more than just a food court with different Italian dining options.
It feels like just yesterday that The Cosmopolitan opened in Las Vegas. Nope, the luxury casino-resort opened in December of 2010. There’s a long history for this relatively young casino on the Vegas Strip. At first, The Cosmopolitan marketed themselves as a unique property. While the right amount of wrong was fun for guests, it didn’t produce the revenue needed to make the property profitable.
One of the best trends to emerge in Las Vegas restaurants in 2018 was special dining opportunities. Tasting and pairing menus for one night only isn’t exactly a new concept. However, it seemed as though more restaurants offered special menus than ever before.
More than ever before Las Vegas is an event town. Long-term nightly artist residencies are a thing of the past. Today, the majority of residencies in Las Vegas are limited engagements or short blasts of shows throughout the year.
Longtime visitors to Las Vegas are probably familiar with Criss Angel. For more than a decade, he has been one of the biggest names in the magic world. Some of you may know Angel from his role as star, creator, executive producer and director of Criss Angel Mindfreak on A&E. Most visitors to Las Vegas know Criss Angel from his extremely popular Cirque Du Soliel shows at Luxor for the past 13 years.
The end of the year gives us a chance to look back at what was new and popular in Las Vegas. Today we’ll look at some of the most visited locations in Las Vegas according to rideshare company Lyft.
Prices at the newest bars and restaurants on the Vegas Strip haven’t been “cheap” in years. However, the inflated prices from the 1990’s haven’t stopped and sticker shock is real. There’s nothing like being hit with a $6 price tag for a large iced coffee before you can open your eyes in the morning. Eesh.
A small group of friends recently stayed at Bellagio for a short vacation. I spent a lot of time at the casino-resort for the first time since it opened. Even though it’s only 20 years old, it feels as if Bellagio has been around forever. It is still one of the most classic (and classy) resorts in Las Vegas.
Escape rooms continue to become more popular around the country. As usual, whatever becomes trendy around the country eventually ends up in Las Vegas. Most of these activities are located off the Vegas Strip. Escape rooms continue to pop up all over town.
