New Experiences Coming to the Las Vegas Strip
If you thought last year was crazy—with the introduction of Lady Gaga’s epic residency and Park MGM opening—2019 is about to get wilder. Spoiler alert: your trip to Las Vegas is about to get more intense.
It’s a city that’s no stranger to change. After all, casinos that once stood as Sin City developed are no longer here. It makes way for transformation and embraces it, as does its visitors. Without constantly reinventing nightlife and immersive experiences, Vegas wouldn’t be a destination for 42.9 million visitors.
If you’re included in that number, keep reading to know about the new experiences heading to the Strip!
An All Senses Experience
What’s being called an “’all senses’ communal experience” is Kind Heaven, Vegas’ first Southeast Asian one-stop-shop. It’ll feature food, fashion, art, and music—while tingling all five senses.
This unique experience is brought to you by film producer Cary Granat, special effects artist Ed Jones, and Lollapalooza’s co-founder Perry Farrell. With these three in charge of the whole production, you know it’s going to be one worth visiting.
To give you a better idea of how this will play out, you’ll take a simulated train ride to what looks like a marketplace. Instead of using cash or credit cards to pay for goods and services, all guests receive wristbands which they can upload Yala Coin cryptocurrency onto.
Judging by the concept art, there will also be a nightclub with special effects lighting, temple-like settings, and garden areas. It’s set to open at The LINQ in November 2019.
A British Invasion
Those with global tastes in music will know of British solo artist Robbie Williams. He’s sold over 75 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.
This pop wonder is bringing his biggest hits like “Millennium,” “Angels,” and “Rock DJ” to the Wynn. This is his first ever U.S residency so you’ll know it’s going to be one to remember. Shows start June 19, 2019 with selects dates until July 6, 2019.
A Giant Spherical Concert Arena
Take the average concert experience and amp it up times 100. What do you get? None other than the MSG Sphere.
It’s a colossal sphere that’ll change the way we see concerts forever. Inside are 157,000 ultra-directional speakers, three-and-a-half acres of video screen (in ultra-high-res, of course), and vibrating floors. Combined, you’ll not only hear the singer but feel the power of their vocal chords too.
Another big improvement from other concert venues? Internet access at each seat means better streaming ability.
The project broke ground late 2018 but no word on when it’s supposed to be completed. It’s being built near the Venetian and the Wynn.
Vegas’ First Live Action Show
From the creators of KA, O, and Michael Jackson ONE comes an all-new Cirque du Soleil show. It’s called “R.U.N” and it’s Vegas’ first ever live-action show.
The story features the adventures of two different parties—a bride who’s wedding was interrupted and a man running from something or someone.
It’s just like the movies but better. There’s action, adventure, maybe even romance. After all, when does a Cirque du Soleil show not leave you at the edge of your seat?
Get ready to be amazed. This thriller of a show opens October 24, 2019.
A Reopened Golf Club
A scandal following the owner of the Wynn casino abruptly shut down plans for a complete gut of its golf course. Replacing it was supposed to be “Paradise Park,” a lavish 38-acre lagoon surrounded by a convention center, a 1,000-room hotel, and a white-sand beach.
Since the news broke out, the plans were then scrapped as the owner stepped down from his post as CEO.
Now, with the help of the Wynn’s new CEO, the golf course will receive a makeover instead of being demolished. The convention center is still in the plans, with golf holes being rerouted and redesigned to accommodate it. The lagoon, however, is a no-go.
No official date has been set for when this project will be completed. The only estimate stated on the company’s website is fall of 2019.
A Cute Café
In 2015, the Hello Kitty Café Truck made headlines as fans flocked to its pop-up location at the Fashion Show Mall. The truck wasn’t there for long, inciting FOMO (fear of missing out, for those who don’t know) amongst those who couldn’t make it.
Missed were uber loads of cuteness ranging from Hello Kitty themed donuts, macarons, strawberry lemonade and a tote bag for those who spent over $25. But that might all change for those who missed the truck the first go around.
Estimated in spring of 2019 (possibly June), a permanent café is set to debut at The Park, right in between the T-Mobile Arena and the Park MGM resort. We’re guessing it’ll have much success here, as the one in Orange County, California does.
A New Mexican Restaurant
Set to debut at the Encore in 2020 is an unnamed Mexican restaurant. Behind it are culinary masterminds Enrique Olvera, Daniela Soto-Innes, and Santiago Perez—also the names behind restaurants Cosme and Atla in NYC.
While its opening is still a ways away, it’s promising exceptional service, Mexican flavors, and a high-energy social atmosphere.
It’s also replacing pan-Asian restaurant Andrea’s, named after the former Wynn CEO’s wife. Reservations at that restaurant can be made until the end 2019, when the renovation for its replacement is set to take place.
A Whole New Las Vegas
There’s just no stopping change on the Las Vegas Strip. Year after year we see new casinos, renovations, and new attractions take place. But that’s what makes Vegas the ideal vacation destination every time.
