The slow transformation of the Monte Carlo to Park MGM is almost complete. Construction on the property started more than two years ago. By the end of the year, work should be finished both the main casino-resort (Park MGM) and the boutique hotel-casino (NoMad).
NoMad Las Vegas
NoMad Las Vegas is officially open. The boutique hotel has 293 rooms and suites and occupies the top four floors of Park MGM. NoMad Las Vegas ties together the New York City park-like influence that you see outside of the hotel at The Park. The new hotel rooms include hardwood floors, Bellino linens, custom Argan bathroom products, and original art-work curated by Paris-based design studio be-poles.
NoMad Las Vegas marks the first Las Vegas culinary offerings from Humm and Guidara’s Make It Nice. Chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara’s portfolio includes the NoMad hotels in New York and Los Angeles, Made Nice and Eleven Madison Park in Manhattan’s Flatiron District.
The restaurant at NoMad will open before the year is over. In the meantime, guests can dine at NoMad Bar. The classical theatres of France inspire the design of NoMad Bar. This is an all-day dining destination with breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night menus.
NoMad Las Vegas has their own casino area at Park MGM and will have a new pool opening when the weather warms up in 2019.
Eataly Las Vegas
Eataly is the venue inside Park MGM that I’ve been looking most forward to. The Italian marketplace is still on schedule to open its first Las Vegas location at Park MGM in late December.
The 40,000-square-foot culinary destination is located directly on the Las Vegas Strip. Eataly will also serve as Park MGM’s main entrance. This location will feature unique food counters, bars, cafes and dining experiences offering traditional Italian food in a vibrant ambiance.
Eataly will be is a new experience for visitors to Las Vegas. The Italian marketplace will offer premium food selections such as cured meats, cheeses, and fresh seafood as well as an assortment of artisanal Italian favorites imported from Italy for purchase.
They will also have several areas dedicated to live cooking demonstrations. You’ll be able to purchase a variety of products as well. You won’t find this offered at any other Las Vegas casino. It will be interesting to see how popular this is since this is a unique concept.
The Eataly Las Vegas dining experience will offer authentic Italian dishes, from Neapolitan pizza and pasta to specialties such as regional Italian street food and hand-pulled mozzarella and burrata cheese made in-house. There will also be al fresco dining at Eataly so you can enjoy the beautiful Las Vegas weather.
“Eataly Las Vegas will showcase our continued evolution,” explains Nicola Farinetti, CEO of Eataly USA. “We are integrating our retail store and restaurants further than ever before to create a more immersive and interactive experience surrounding premier food offerings. We can’t wait to share our country’s delicious cuisine and culture with the Las Vegas community – while Eataly will always remain authentically Italian, we are also excited to incorporate the culture and ingredients of the American Southwest throughout the venue.”
