Park MGM, in the space formerly known as the Monte Carlo, a partnership between MGM and the Sydell Group (the buzzy brand behind NoMad, Freehand, LINE Hotels and more) is remixing the definition of Las Vegas. Call it “millennial,” hip, or of-the-moment, the brand targets those who seek well-designed, local, low-key experiences that offer a certain quality over quantity.
The property exudes intimacy and provides a nice refuge from the chaos of the strip. The casino floor is more upscale than its neighbors, maintaining the original chandeliers and ceilings from the days of the Monte Carlo, inspired by the famed Monaco casino. Still, the vibe is distinctly modern, with found art, commissioned works, and contemporary art pieces, including iPad drawings by David Hockney and a multimedia dreamscape by Iranian artists Shoja Azari and Shahram Karimi.
