Take a First Look at the Sake Rok Plans for Social Dining

The "enchanting yet eccentric" world of Sake Rok is almost here.

On target for an April 3 debut, Sake Rok at MGM Resorts' The Park is beginning to share their three-level, design vision for hosting a lunch, dinner and late-night lounge scene they describe as a "high-profile social dining extravaganza."

Part of a restaurant row at The Park, set to include the existing Shake Shack, the future Bruxie, a "gourmet waffle" concept, California Pizza Kitchen and the indoor/outdoor Beer Garden, Sake Rok will offer a menu of sushi, Japanese cuisine and appropriately, their own "private sake label."

Filling more than 13,000 square feet, the 200-seat restaurant features a mezzanine with views of the main room, bar and sushi bar. The top level has enough room for an additional 150 guests and is being pitched to group events with the promise of a 1,300 square foot balcony and open-air views of The Park, the T-Mobile Arena and the Strip.

At night the dining room will host "interactive servers" encouraging guests to engage in "sake bombs," while staff "spontaneously breaking into dance and lip-sync serenades."

While both MGM Resorts and Sake Rok themselves, are still promoting "a six-foot man dressed in traditional Geisha attire" who will keep the room full of energy, Sake Rok updates that the emcee is now expected to be "enchanting yet eccentric" and "outlandish and extravagant."

The declared construction budget for the ground-up project has now escalated "north of $4 million." Sake Rok have helped raised money for their venture by selling $3.5 million in equity securities to 26 investors over the course of a year, including paying out $60,000 in officers' salaries.
