Madison Square Park: Las Vegas at the MGM
A replication of Madison Square Park in Las Vegas will be constructed by the MGM Grand. The $100 Million project will be located outside the MGM New York-New York and Monte Carlo resorts.
The Madison Square Park inspired space in Las Vegas will be a part of a promenade containing a 20,000 seat arena, stores and restaurants. The park will also feature Madison Square Park-staple Shake Shack.
The area will also contain a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge and a beer garden. The plans include a Double Barrel Roadhouse, Hershey’s Chocolate World and an 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria.
The Madison Square Park Las Vegas outpost is not the first piece of NYC to go out west. Las Vegas has recently gone Brookln-crazy with plans for a Brooklyn Bowl to open. In addition, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh is spearheading the $350 million “Downtown Project” to create an urban Brooklyn-like space in Sin City.
Madison Square Park in Las Vegas? We’re curious to see how it turns out!
