LAS VEGAS (CelebrityAccess) Lady Gaga debuted her residency at Las Vegas’ new resort, Park MGM, with a sold-out performance Dec. 29.
The first night of Gaga’s “Enigma” residency also marked the introduction of Las Vegas’ first Eataly and the launch of new speakeasy On The Record. Engima is expected to run through 2019 and not only has an over-the-top science fiction theme but a stripped-down segment featuring Gaga’s performances of the Great American Songbook.
Those in attendance for the 5,200-capacity show included Katyu Perry, Orlando Bloom, Jeremy Renner, Dave Grohl, Adam Lambert and Marisa Tomei.
Los Angeles scene-makers and twin brothers Jonnie and Mark Houston hosted the evening’s official after-party, premiering their new modern speakeasy and club concept, On The Record. Hidden behind a functioning record-store entry, the club spans three rooms, including indoor and outdoor spaces, dance floors, a patio bar and three hidden karaoke rooms. It also boasts the ultra-intimate 25-seat Vinyl Parlor, where a lineup of top bartenders from coast to coast serve as Bartenders-in-Residence.
The 40,000 square-foot Italian marketplace Eataly welcomed more than a thousand guests for its opening reception, which featured a pasta-ribbon cutting and a proclamation of Dec. 27 as the official “Eataly Day” in Las Vegas, according to a statement.
The debuts of Lady Gaga, On The Record and Eataly mark the final stage of the two-year, $550 million development at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. A partnership between MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group, Park MGM features 2,700 guest rooms and suites; the Las Vegas extension of Sydell’s NoMad features 293 guest rooms and suites.
Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas are located next to the entertainment and dining neighborhood created by The Park and the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena.
