Plan Your Stay At MGM Grand
MGM Grand Review
The MGM Grand is one of the oldest and most recognizable staples on the Strip and its gigantic bronze lions are featured in about 1,000,000 tourist photos. For that and many other reasons the MGM is a must stop on any Vegas tour.
Las Vegas Travel Guides
If you're smart and take the time to eat before you begin drinking there is a wide variety of upscale, casual and really casual dining options within the MGM. For a delicious meal of foods you can both recognize and pronounce Wolfgang Puck's Bar and Grill never disappoints. If you're looking for the same high end feel but lighter fare Shibuya or SeaBlue are excellent options as well. If you want rich food with a smaller price tag try another famous name, Emeril's. His delicious Cajun concoctions will make you want to go "bam" but try to restrain yourself. If dinner is just a stepping stone to get your night going try the Rainforest Café. The food is good, the theme is unique and the wild animals sounds playing throughout dinner with prepare you for the night you're about to have.
Entertainment & Nightlife
Studio 54 is the main club at MGM and like its New York counterpart people are there to let loose and have a good time. Trapeze performers swing overhead and the large projection screen behind the DJ booth makes for a fun night of sight and sound. Tabu it where you go to bob to premier techno music offered up but some big names, such as Paul Oakenfold. The cocktailers tend to the VIP couches in uniforms of lingerie and the patrons often do too. The pulsating musc works the crowd into a frenzy and the strong drinks do their part as well.
But the entertainment doesn't just happen in the late hours. One of the most popular draws to the MGM is the Lion Habitat where you can see two or three lions hanging out or playing with their trainers throughout the day and night.
Cirque du Soleil show KA is a visual interpretation of ying and yang with a moving floor that makes the amazing stunts seem even more spectacular. Inside the Hollywood Theatre there's a revolving door of great performers, including Howie Mandel. If you want more adult entertainment Crazy Horse is the place to be. Sexy dancers twist and turn under the strategically placed lights causing you to wonder if your eyes are playing tricks on you or are they really topless? Yes they are but the show is more of a sneak and peek than a full-on strip.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg that is the MGM Grand. Walking through the casino you're bound to find more pockets of fun with great bars, fun shops, and exciting games. A weekend at the MGM may not be enough to do everything there is to do but it will keep you coming back to try.
