About MGM Grand

Boasting a plethora of iconic attractions, world-class entertainment, and a dynamic casino, MGM invites you into the heart of the Vegas action.

Location

MGM Grand has perhaps one of the best locations on the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Situated at the southern end of the Strip, the resort is strategically positioned, providing easy access to the city’s most renowned attractions.

Within a short walking distance, you’ll find yourself at the doorstep of attractions like the T-Mobile Arena, The Park, and Park MGM (where Eataly is). New York-New York, Excalibur, Luxor, Planet Hollywood, and Aria aren’t too far away either!

Entertainment

Prepare to be captivated by the crazy amount of entertainment options at MGM Grand. Witness the breathtaking acrobatics of KÀ by Cirque du Soleil, where gravity-defying feats unfold on a colossal rotating stage.

Or, experience the awe-inspiring magic of David Copperfield, hailed as the “greatest illusionist of our time.” Fancy a night of dance instead? The Jabbawockeez show is also here! The variety of shows ensures there’s something for every taste.

Restaurants

MGM Grand is a culinary haven — there are SO many options here. Indulge in the epitome of luxury dining at Joël Robuchon, a Michelin-starred French restaurant. For a delectable steakhouse experience, Craftsteak by Tom Colicchio is a must-visit.

Those seeking a more casual atmosphere can explore the vibrant small-plate offerings at Crush. If you’re on a budget, the Food Court provides quick and affordable bites. Here’s a list of top dining options you can get excited about:

  • Joël Robuchon: Experience culinary excellence at this three-Michelin-starred French restaurant, offering an exquisite and intimate dining experience.
  • L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon: A more casual but equally impressive dining option, providing a unique counter-style experience with a diverse menu of French gourmet dishes.
  • Craftsteak: Renowned chef Tom Colicchio brings his culinary expertise to Craftsteak, offering a modern twist on the classic American steakhouse with a focus on premium cuts of meat.
  • Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill: Enjoy a casual and approachable atmosphere while savoring Wolfgang Puck’s signature dishes, blending diverse flavors and high-quality ingredients.
  • Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House: Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse brings the flavors of New Orleans to Las Vegas, featuring fresh seafood and bold Creole-inspired dishes.
  • MGM Grand Buffet: A diverse buffet experience offering an array of international cuisines, from fresh seafood to decadent desserts, catering to a variety of tastes.
  • Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak: Craftsteak, by celebrity chef Tom Colicchio, focuses on top-quality, organic ingredients to create a menu centered around exceptional steaks and other dishes.
  • Avenue Café: A 24-hour café providing a diverse menu of American and international comfort food, perfect for any time of day or night.

Nightlife

When the sun sets, MGM Grand comes alive with pulsating nightlife. Hakkasan, a globally renowned nightclub and restaurant, promises an unforgettable evening with world-class DJs and a high-energy atmosphere.

For a daytime party vibe, head to Wet Republic Ultra Pool, where top-tier DJs and lively poolside ambiance create the perfect daytime escape.

Outdoor Pool Complex

MGM may have one of the best pool complexes in all of Las Vegas. (Personally, we think the Mandalay Bay pool complex is better, but this is a close second.) Multiple pools, lazy rivers, and lots of cabanas create a tropical oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation. You can order food and drinks at the pool area, and there’s always music playing. You could very easily spend ALL of your mornings and afternoons here.
