A new Ole Red location in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip is slated to open in 2023. Blake Shelton joined Ryman Hospitality Properties yesterday at a press conference to announce plans for the new venue, marking the brand’s sixth location.
Located in front of Caesars Entertainment’s Bally’s Las Vegas at the Grand Bazaar Shops, the planned Ole Red Las Vegas project will be the company’s first Western location. The company revealed plans to spend approximately $30 million developing the four-story building, which will feature a main dining floor and two additional guest floors overlooking a central stage with state-of-the-art video, acoustics and lighting.
Guests will also enjoy food, beverages and a live music experience on an expansive 4,500 square-foot rooftop while taking in the Las Vegas cityscape. The Shelton-inspired menu will feature food and cocktails that are unique to the Las Vegas location and infused with southern hospitality. At approximately 27,000 square feet with a planned 686 seats, Ole Red Las Vegas is slated to be the brand’s largest location to date.
“I know what it’s like to be a young musician playing bars and small venues, never knowing what to expect. I’m proud that we’re building a network of places where artists can get the kind of exposure playing live that is so critical for growing their fan base,” said Shelton. “Having these locations for artists to play in different parts of the country is a dream come true.”
“Las Vegas is one of the most important leisure playgrounds on the planet with over 40 million tourists a year,” added Colin Reed, chairman and chief executive officer of Ryman Hospitality Properties. “As we expand this brand into tourist and convention-focused markets, Las Vegas is a natural fit since many of its top feeder markets are home to high concentrations of country lifestyle consumers. We are excited to have the opportunity to develop a flagship Ole Red location on such a coveted piece of commercial real estate within the Caesars Entertainment empire where over 100,000 people walk by each day.”
