The Park MGM officially took over the former Monte Carlo on Tuesday when the lights went on for a new marquee lighting up the hotel tower.
The changeover marks a second phase of changes at the resort, which already debuted Primrose, the South of France-inspired three-meal restaurant and Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar out of Chicago with its swanky steaks and secret cocktail lounge at the back of the dark steakhouse.
In March, the resort unveiled Moneyline Sports Book & Bar with duckpin bowling lanes, billiards games and a menu from Bavette’s parent company Hogsalt Hospitality of cheeseburgers and self-service, weigh-and-pay food.
Juniper Cocktail Lounge only recently revealed its gin-forward menu that includes a fortune-telling cocktail.
But the changes at the resort don’t end there. This fall, Los Angeles chef Roy Choi plans to open an unnamed restaurant at the resort. Eataly brings its sixth marketplace with a bevy dining options in the fall as well.
And perhaps most exciting, NoMad opens at the resort, bringing not only a 292-room hotel, but dining from chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara, the visionaries behind the Eleven Madison Park in New York City.
