LAS VEGAS (Oct 9, 2018)- The always evolving LEVEL UP at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino continues to enhance its interactive entertainment offerings with several new additions including a live music stage, mechanical bull riding pen, state-of-the-art casino-style games, arcade installations including Hot Shot basketball as well as more traditional games. The 12,000-square-foot venue located between Hakkasan Nightclub and the MGM Grand Race and Sports Book continues to develop with a variety of new activities and events for guests.

From its debut in December 2016, LEVEL UP’s modern and industrial design concept has provided a unique aesthetic adding to the overall guest experience. Accompanying the current traditional and skill-based games, the lounge’s expanded amenities will entice guests to dance to live music, sing on karaoke night, saddle up on a mechanical bull, spin the “Wheel of Fun,” shoot hoops on Pop-A-Shot, team up for beer pong tournaments and much more.

Additionally, LEVEL UP, the energetic ‘place to play’ social lounge, provides the perfect atmosphere for sports enthusiasts. Fans can catch a game on over 36 state-of-the-art TVs and a giant LED video wall which can showcase four games at once, complemented by craft beer and signature cocktail specials from the in-venue “Live Lucky Bar.” Guests also may find themselves challenging their friends to mini-bowling or during one of three virtual reality games within the 2,000 square-foot arena

With its entertainment expansion, LEVEL UP will be the premier destination for social gatherings, esports, athletic events and those looking to take their Las Vegas experience to the next level.

Mondays at 9 p.m., guests can participate in karaoke, Thursdays at 10 p.m. rock out with ‘80s tribute band, Spandex Nation, Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. catch a set by open format DJs, and close out Sundays with the acoustic sounds by Rusty Vaughn Lee at 9 p.m.
