Blake Shelton is opening a new hot spot in Las Vegas that amalgamates live music, good food and amazing vibes right on The Strip. Ole Red is the newest brainchild of Blake Shelton, Ryman Hospitality Properties and Caesars Entertainment’s Horseshoe Las Vegas.
Ole Red will be a four-story restaurant, bar and music venue that will give attendees a country-style experience with a Las Vegas twist, of course. It will be the ultimate spot for people who crave live music, dancing, and high-quality entertainment. Blake Shelton made a stop in Las Vegas to celebrate the building’s ground-breaking event, and he also had a Q&A session, hosted by Bill Cody from WSM Radio.
There are a few Ole Red locations peppered throughout the United States already. There are locations in Oklahoma, Florida and Tennessee. But, the largest location will be right here in Las Vegas. It’s also the first location in the America West.
“If you are going to do something here, you’ve got to do it big,” Blake Shelton said during a Q&A session. “Every time I’m in Vegas, I want some country music and Ole Red is the remedy for that.”
The newest entertainment hub will be located on the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. The structure will be about 27,000 square feet with 686 seats. The celebration of Ole Red and the project’s ground breaking was part of a special event that allowed attendees to get a first look at Las Vegas’ newest country bar.
According to a press release, there will be four floors in total that will offer a different type of experience depending on the level you’re on. The first and second floors will be your traditional drink-and-dine area. There will be live music playing throughout these two floors and attendees can order scratch-made dishes and great drinks. But when nightfall hits, these two floors turn into a honky-tonk dance floor that has VIP areas. The third floor will be for “higher-end VIP.”
The third floor will have lounge seating, advanced audio and visual technology and nigh-end décor. Bottle service will also be available along with a special third-floor menu.
The last floor, which is the fourth, will be a rooftop bar with a swanky restaurant environment during the day. And at night, the rooftop bar will transform into a true Las Vegas lounge — with Country style.
The future of hospitality and entertainment seem to be experiential. Essentially, attendees want to feel apart of the living environment with enough stimulation. Ole Red is as experiential as it gets, bringing together innovative and traditional ideas of entertainment to offer a new live music bar that is different from the rest.
