Las Vegas will soon be home to a new location of The Nomad Hotel, complete with a restaurant from Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, as well as an outpost of Eataly. Basically, Las Vegas is getting a taste of Broadway between 23rd and 28th streets. MGM Resorts is teaming up with Sydell Group, the company that owns The Nomad, for a $450 million revamp of The Monte Carlo Resort & Casino. When work is complete in 2018, the space will have both a version of The Nomad Hotel, and a new, slightly more casual 2,700 room hotel called the Park MGM.
The Nomad Vegas will have 292 rooms, a swimming pool, gaming, and a restaurant, of course. In an announcement about the project, Will Guidara explains: "Daniel and I are thrilled to be bringing what we do at The NoMad to Las Vegas. We love creating fun and memorable experiences for the people who walk through the doors of our restaurants, and we can't imagine a more perfect place to do it than in a city whose very foundation has been built around doing exactly that."
The Nomad crew loves magic tricks and showmanship in general, so Vegas sounds like a good fit. Humm and Guidara are also planning to open another outpost of The Nomad in Los Angeles next year, and they're currently hard at work on their fast casual restaurant on 28th Street, Made Nice, which is slated to open around Labor Day.
Mario Batali has been contemplating opening a Vegas outpost of Eataly since at least 2012. Just like the New York location, Eataly vegas will have a mix of market areas, cafe spaces, and full-service restaurants.
