Top 10 Reasons to Visit The Park
Located between New York-New York and Monte Carlo, The Park is an open-air space where you can temporarily escape the hustle and bustle of the Vegas Strip. The area offers plenty of seating areas with a handful of dining options that all lead to the newest entertainment venue in Las Vegas, the T-Mobile Arena. Once you walk past the water wall features that separate The Park from the Vegas Strip you’ll find a lot of things to enjoy.
1. Enjoy A Cup Of Coffee from Sambalatte At Monte Carlo
Grab a cup of coffee from Sambalatte at the Monte Carlo Plaza and take the 30-second walk to The Park. Sit back and take in this relaxing environment while enjoying one of the best cups of coffee on the Vegas Strip. The Nutella latte might be the best latte you’ll drink in Las Vegas!
2. Try A Fried Chicken And Waffle Sandwich at Bruxie
In the past few years chicken and waffles have graduated from a southern cuisine (I use that term loosely) to the hippest dish on the brunch menu at just about every restaurant in America. Waffles and waffle sandwiches are for everyone but there’s something different about the Bruxie waffles that make them more than appetizing. The light waffle essentially serves as a vessel for a juicy buttermilk fried chicken breast. The added cider slaw and chili honey really make this sandwich explode in your mouth.
3. Play Games At Beerhaus
Beerhaus not only has a wide variety of beer and delicious food (try the brisket sandwich) but they also have a handful of games you can play. Choose from Jenga and Connect 4 if you want to play a game at your table while eating or grab a beer and head over to play foosball, shuffleboard, corn hole and more. Value tip: This is a good place to stop if you want some afternoon fun. From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. they offer a happy hour type deal with $4 brews and bites.
4. Visit New York-New York
The Park was built as a non-gaming destination but there’s actually an entrance to the New York-New York casino right in the middle of The Park. The quick entry is nice in case you get the itch to hit the tables or slots. It also makes for a nice exit if the casino isn’t treating you so well.
5. Chillax With A Slushy Drink
Las Vegas is famous for its slushy drinks and there’s one specific bar at The Park where you can get one. Sake Rok has three machines at their outdoor bar that pour different icy cold boozy delights. You can choose from strawberry, mango and blue colada flavored boozy slushy drinks, Just make sure that you drink slowly so you don’t get brain freeze.
6. Grab A Pie And Park It
California Pizza Kitchen is probably the most famous brand name at The Park, but this location is a little different than others you’ll find around the country. There are items unique to this location and you can enjoy your meal outside. If you don’t feel like being held to the confines of the restaurant just grab a pie to go and head out to The Park and grab a table or seat that you should easily find.
7. Post a Photo of Bliss Dance on Instagram
The 40 foot sculpture is sure to become a favorite for visitors posting on Instagram. Created by artist Marco Cochrane and originally displayed at Burning Man in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, Bliss Dance is a focal piece of The Park’s design. Intended to provide a statement about about female strength and expression, the sculpture is especially impressive at night when it is illuminated by 3,000 LED lights.
8. Dine Al Fresco
One of the best features of the restaurants at The Park is that you can dine outside. Shade and seating vary by restaurant but eating and drinking outside provides for an unbeatable dining experience when the weather is nice. If you’re a people watcher you might want to grab a burger at Shake Shack and watch the action on the Vegas Strip. If you prefer some seclusion but like dining outside just head to the roof deck at Sake Rok.
9. Take Part In A Sake Rok Performance
Sake Rok isn’t just another sushi restaurant. The restaurant is inspired by Japan’s pop culture and the servers are also entertainers. There are restaurant-wide sake bombs offered, impromptu dance parties and lip-sync serenades by guests and performers alike. This is not just another place to eat. It’s an unique experience.
10. See A Big Show
Once you hit the end of The Park you’ll pass through Toshiba Plaza before you enter the newest entertainment venue on the Vegas Strip, the T-Mobile Arena. One of the best ways to enjoy The Park is to stop by for dinner and drinks before a concert or sporting event at T-Mobile Arena. When the event is over you can stop by The Park for after show drinks and shenanigans. It’s almost like MGM planned it this way.
