It is hard to keep up with all of the new experiences that seem to crop up in Las Vegas almost every month. Each year, more hotels, shows, bars, restaurants (you get the idea) are built, changing the flashy skyline faster than we can comment. And with each new endeavor, the city becomes a bigger beacon for visitors from all over the world to come party, gamble, eat, drink and play to their hearts content. With that being said, it is always good to stay in the know of up and coming ventures, so you can plan your dream holiday to Sin City the right way. Here is all that should be appearing over the next year, with an emphasis on all things BIG TIME.
If we are talking big time- then the Raiders Stadium is at the top of the list. For anyone who has been to Vegas lately, you will probably have seen the looming building growing larger by the day. Set to open in 2020, the stadium will seat 65,000 football fans and host too many epic games to count during it’s lifetime. We can only imagine what the half time shows will look like, seeing as we are set in the entertainment capital.
The world has never been so futuristically inclined as it is now- and there is nothing like a huge space defying orb that will boggle your mind and change the way concerts are seen (and heard). Simply titled the MSG Sphere, this concert venue is the design of Madison Square Garden inventors, so we expect big things. Think high def screens, seats that literally pulse with the beats of the music, and options to increase or decrease your personal sound experience to fit your needs and expectations. The Sphere will be able to hold 23,000 guests, and will be situated just off the strip for easy access. If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to be in a Sci-Fi film… wonder no more.
Kaos pool gets a dome of its own
Speaking of domes, it has been a long time in the making for such a structure to be built over the Vegas hotel pools so guests can enjoy the summertime feels year round. Those dreams have become a reality, and Kaos pool will be the newest to house a cover that means the parties won’t stop once the weather takes a turn for the colder. In fact, the Kaos dome will be over 70 feet high (big enough to encase that towering naked sculpture we all know and love) and is sanctioned to be finished by Halloween for the club’s “Demon Dome” Halloween party. If we didn’t have you at ‘towering naked sculpture,’ then the headliner, which will be none other than Cardi B, should solidify your resolve to book those tickets.
As if we didn’t have enough choice on where to stay here in the oasis, the newest addition to the strip hotels is due to open in December of 2020. Resorts World is bigger, more elaborate and exquisitely draped in all things 5 star. 59 stories of impressive rooms, restaurants and bars/lounges should have guests chomping at the bit to get a reservation here, with fans of the other Resort World properties vouching for their envy-inducing reputation. If it seems like we don’t have much to tell you yet, it is simply because the hotel and its amenities must be tried to be fully comprehended- no amount of text can do it justice.
If it feels like its been awhile since something new in the nightlife game has hit, the wait will soon be coming to an end. Fuerza Bruta, an interactive artistically directed show/ dance party extravaganza is opening at the Excalibur in 2020 to what will certainly be immeasurable excitement. Changing the way shows are produced and performed, this one has the audience placed in the center of the stage, (which is set in an outdoor high tech tent-style arena) while the show commences around them. It is meant to encourage an interactive vibe from the onlookers, shrugging off the old school of thought that the audience should be seen and not heard. We can bet it is going to be incredible, as the show originated in Buenos Aires and they don’t take their entertainment lightly down there.
While we are biding our time in high excitement awaiting these new venues and ventures, there are a few things that have opened this year that are still worth shouting about. The new Zipline at the Linq Hotel lets visitors soar over the promenade of shops, restaurants and bars before ending at the foot of the High Roller Wheel. A great day or night activity for all ages and adrenaline (or lack there-of) seekers. Eataly inside the Park MGM has debuted in 12 different countries(!) and is now serving Las Vegas foodies. Multiple stalls, bars and seating areas allow people to wander around, taste and watch as their favorite Italian dishes are made right before their eyes. The food is to die for, and the Aeperol Spritz is one for the books. And finally, the household name of Vanderpump has finally made its mark on Sin City, with Lisa Vanderpump herself spearheading the cocktail lounge inside Ceasars Palace Hotel. The dreamy setting is perfect for date night or cheeky drink before a big night on the town. You’ll be rubbing elbows with the stars, even if they are only famous on reality TV.
So mark your calendars, empty those saving accounts and start planning your whirlwind trip to Las Vegas. It is going to be a year of wonder, excitement and parties so extravagant you’ll never want to leave- but book fast because many others will be wanting to indulge in their share of the fun.
