The Hakkasan Group has its eyes firmly on the millennial market for its next concept headed to the MGM Grand and has announced a surprisingly early debut date for its combination bar, lounge and "tech savvy, adult playground."

On Thursday, Dec. 29, Level Up will replace the 12,000-square-foot casino level space vacated by the shuttered Rainforest Cafe, transforming the large footprint with an early estimated construction budget of $2,198,043.

Decorated with murals, "colorful upholstery, and a mixture of metal and rustic finishes," guests will "pay to play" Level Up’s unconventional game collection including "QuadAir Hockey, Bubble Hockey, Sigma Derby, Giant Pac-Man and Connect Four, an arm wrestling table, and much more." It has not been announced if this is the exact same Sigma Derby machine that has long been a feature on the resort’s casino floor.

Patrons wishing to gamble with real money can press their luck on traditional casino games, operated in unconventional formats, in a dedicated section featuring a 40-seat arena to "provide a high-energy environment that will revolutionize the casino player culture."

There will also be the "world’s first indoor laser golf course," using "Augmented Reality" to let players experience "real-world courses on moving greens with laser guidance, while offering a bevy of interactive putting and other mini-games." The golf game will be connected to a "luxurious VIP lounge area accompanied by food and beverage offerings and a private model caddy. "

Back in the non-virtual world, customers can head straight to the "Live Lucky Bar," serving 24 craft beers and a specialty cocktail menu, while being entertained by a "live DJ and endless entertainment across the multiple screens on display."

Opening hours have yet to be announced.
