MAYFAIR AFTER DARK RETURNS MAY 28

Revival of popular nightlife experience sets the stage for a bigger and bolder evening at Fountain-side hotspot, The Mayfair Supper Club.

Recently named one of the world’s best new restaurants by Conde Nast Traveler’s Hot 100 list, The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio is set to revive Mayfair After Dark, the sensory-consuming, late-night revelry, on May 28. The nightlife soiree starts at 11 p.m. every Friday and Saturday and blends live musical acts and performances with a menu of gourmet bites and bottle service; unexpected show vignettes, and more to create an interactive dance party unlike anything else on The Strip.

“We are proud to relaunch Mayfair After Dark and welcome back the dancers and entertainers who make the nightlife concept come alive,” said MGM Resorts International Chief Hospitality Officer Ari Kastrati. “The high-energy atmosphere of the experience along with a vibrant production of talented performers delivers the ‘wow’ factor at every turn.”

Mayfair After Dark will relaunch Memorial Day Weekend with the official introduction of new powerhouse singer Stephani Parker, who will headline the show nightly with awe-inspiring vocals and an engaging charisma that is sure to bring guests to their feet. The late-night program will continue to evolve in the coming months with new musical arrangements, high-energy DJ beats, and more memorable surprise and delight moments.

“The response to The Mayfair has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Co-Founder of No Ceilings Entertainment Kim Willecke. “For our second revival, we’re channeling everything people love about the experience but taking it to the next level with new showstopping duets, bigger dance ensembles, enhanced costume flair and so much more. We can’t wait for guests to see what we have in store.”

In addition to Mayfair After Dark, new dinner show creative will debut that features:

  • New Acts: More swing. More jazz. More laughs. The Mayfair has layered into its beloved evolution of a swinging prohibition jazz club with brand-new, full-scale productions that blend modern music with old-school big bands. High-energy choreography and new character scripts immerse first-timers and regulars alike in new entertainment to captivate their senses from the moment they step into The Mayfair.
  • New Performer: Along with headlining Mayfair After Dark, Parker, whose voice earned her the informal title “Diva of the Seas,” will add her soulful sounds to weekly dinner show performances at The Mayfair. Complementing the talents of current lead performers LaShonda Reese and Steve Judkins, Parker brings an electric vibe to the production through new solos and duets introduced throughout the evening.
  • New Costumes: Inspired by classic 1950s Hollywood, The Mayfair’s new style celebrates mid-century glamour with Vegas charm. Performers and band members bedecked in fringe, diamonds, gowns and tailcoats further transport guests into a world of yesteryear.

The Mayfair Supper Club is located on the Bellagio casino floor, adjacent to Lago by Julian Serrano. Hours of operation are:

Dinner

        * Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday: 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

        * Friday and Saturday: 5 p.m. – 11 p.m.

Mayfair After Dark

        * Friday and Saturday: 11 p.m. – 2 a.m.

A Letter From MGM Resorts

As quarantine policies lift around the country and people begin to leave their homes, travel guidelines must be carefully calculated so jet setters can safely explore. In a letter from Jenn Michaels, Senior Vice President of Public Relations at MGM Resorts International, she explains how the resort experience has changed for a health-conscious stay.

Having recently reopened resorts in Mississippi, Las Vegas, and New York and Excalibur opening later this week, Michaels explains the new normal for the MGM Resorts. Employees and guests wear masks, plexiglass separates players at card game tables, and signs remind guests to keep social distance from one another. The resorts implement new technological innovations to ease worries for guests. One technology applies to their restaurants where guests can now view menus and wine lists on their phones and receive texts when their tables are ready. Another innovation allows guests to use their mobile phones to check into their room and as a room key. Technology like this limits the touch points in one’s MGM Resort stay.

Jenn explains that, despite the readjustments necessary for a safe stay, guests still relax and enjoy their stays, “What else do I see as I wander around? People having a great time, enjoying fun dinners, hanging out poolside, exploring the Bellagio Conservatory (a gorgeous Japanese display), watching the fountains dance, and generally having a blast, like you’re supposed to in Las Vegas. And even better than that is seeing people back at work and how happy they are to be reunited with their colleagues.”

And for those of you who are still weary of travel, Jenn assures guests that MGM Resorts will be happily awaiting your arrival, “When you’re ready to come back, we’re here. There’s no doubt that the world needs travel, adventure, exploration, experiences. And all of us, in some way, play a role in that for consumers – whether it’s the destination itself or telling wonderful stories that inspire people to travel. Let’s continue to be there for each other and for the world.”

Our lives may look different but with innovative technology and careful policies, we can ease back into comfortable and exciting vacations.

MGM Resorts International – Reopening Plans

MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL RELEASES HEALTH AND SAFETY PLAN FOR RE-OPENING UNITED STATES PROPERTIES

Expert input, digital innovation and operational enhancements are at the forefront of MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) today released a report outlining the comprehensive health and safety protocols the company is implementing prior to re-opening its domestic properties and resorts which were temporarily closed in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The report details MGM Resorts’ “Seven-Point Safety Plan” – a multi-layered set of protocols and procedures designed in conjunction with medical and scientific experts to deter the spread of the virus, protect customers and employees and rapidly respond to potential new cases. The full report can be found HERE.

“Preparing for the moment we can re-open our doors, MGM Resorts focused on developing a plan that puts health and safety at the center of everything we do. Our ‘Seven-Point Safety Plan’ is the result of months of consultations with public health experts and outlines our comprehensive approach to welcoming guests back safely,” said MGM Resorts Acting CEO and President Bill Hornbuckle. “Our properties will not look the way they used to for a while, and that’s not only okay, it’s critically important. We will continue providing the hospitality experiences we are known for, but we must do so safely. We will continue working with experts and following guidance from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government officials and regulators as we evolve these protocols based on the latest information.”

EXPERT GUIDANCE

MGM Resorts Lead Health and Safety Advisor: Dr. Shannon Magari, Vice President of Health Sciences for Colden Corporation

MGM Resorts is working with Dr. Shannon Magari, ScD, MPH, MS as its lead health and safety advisor for this process. Dr. Magari is the Vice President of Health Sciences for Colden Corporation, an occupational health, safety and environmental firm. Dr. Magari obtained her Master of Science from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College and received her doctoral training and served as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health – specializing in Occupational Epidemiology.

OVERVIEW: MGM RESORTS’ SEVEN-POINT SAFETY PLAN

The full report, including detailed protocols, procedures and operational enhancements can be found HERE.

These protocols and procedures focus on balancing the customer service guests have come to expect from MGM Resorts with the urgent need to apply knowledge about COVID-19 and adapt environments accordingly. This plan is being implemented at MGM Resorts’ properties throughout the United States, with additions and changes being made based on local jurisdictions.

MGM Resorts’ Seven-Point Safety Plan is as follows:

    1. Screening, Temperature Checks and Employee TrainingMGM Resorts has implemented employee-screening measures to assess signs and symptoms of infection and whether the employee resides or cares for someone who has recently been diagnosed with the virus. Employees are currently and will continue to go through temperature checks before entering properties.Guests will be asked to abide by a similar self-screening protocol prior to arriving and during their stay. Guests who have reason to believe they may have been exposed to the virus are strongly urged to follow CDC guidelines for self-quarantine and not travel. We will look forward to welcoming those guests once the self-quarantine period is complete.

 

    1. Mandatory Masks and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)All MGM Resorts employees will be provided and required to wear an approved mask when on our properties. We will also strongly encourage guests to wear masks in public areas and offer masks to any guests who need one, free of charge. Gloves will continue to be worn by employees who require them to do their jobs, such as food handlers and employees who clean public areas. Additional categories of employees required to wear PPE will be identified by medical experts.
      • Drink service: We will ask guests to minimize the amount of time masks are removed when drinking on the casino floor.
      • Eating: We will ask guests to refrain from eating on the casino floor to minimize the amount of time masks are removed.

 

    1. Physical Distancing: Six-foot physical distancing policy will be in place, wherever feasible, with floor guides serving as reminders throughout MGM Resorts properties. From time-to-time, six-foot distancing will be challenging – and in those cases, reasonable mitigating protocols will be implemented, such as plexiglass barriers or eye protection for employees. Plexiglass barriers will be installed in areas throughout casinos and lobbies, where appropriate, for the safety of guests and employees. Signage will be installed throughout properties to guide employees and guests on how to safely practice physical distancing.

 

    1. Handwashing and Enhanced Sanitization: Prior to property closures in March, MGM Resorts implemented increased and enhanced routine cleaning, based on CDC guidelines, with a focus on high-touch surfaces in common areas. We will continue using proven cleaning products in accordance with EPA guidelines for coronaviruses, bacteria and other infectious pathogens. Electrostatic sprayers will be used in many large areas to allow us to apply disinfectant more efficiently.In addition, custom-built handwashing stations with soap and water, along with hand-sanitizing stations, will be readily available in high-traffic areas and with a visible presence. Signage will be installed to guide and remind employees and guests of the importance of proper handwashing protocols.

 

    1. Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Controls and Air Quality: MGM Resorts has always placed a high priority on air quality for our guests and has reviewed the operation of HVAC systems to identify additional opportunities to enhance their effectiveness. Rigorous measures in accordance with established guidelines to help mitigate the risk of virus transmission have been taken throughout our properties.As scientific information becomes available about the virus, and as additional guidance from state and local authorities and our medical experts evolve, we will continue to review and adjust the operation of our HVAC systems, fully recognizing the important role they have in keeping employees and guests healthy and safe.

 

    1. Incident Response Protocols: MGM Resorts has protocols in place aimed at reducing the chance infection will spread. In the unfortunate event a guest or employee tests positive for the virus, we will activate incident response protocols to ensure the infected individual has access to medical treatment, exposed areas are thoroughly sanitized and, when possible, notify those who may have come in close, prolonged contact with the infected individual. MGM Resorts has medical and security personnel on staff to respond quickly in the event of an incident.

 

    1. Digital Innovations: MGM Resorts is reimagining several aspects of the guest experience through technology to transition current processes into contactless options for guests that eliminates or reduces the need for waiting in line.
      • Contactless Check-In: Guests will have the ability to complete the check-in process entirely themselves through the MGM Resorts mobile app. This includes the ability to process payment, verify identification and obtain a digital room key, all through a mobile device. If preferred, physical keys will be available through self-serve key encoders. Employees will be available for guests who prefer check-in without using their mobile device, while still maintaining a line-reduced environment.
      • Food & Beverage: Digital menus will be available to view on personal mobile devices via QR code. Virtual queues will be in place for guests when immediate seating is unavailable. Guests will receive a text message notification when their table is ready.

The Mayfair

Music, sports, television and fashion stars rang in the new decade in Las Vegas with a night of dancing and dining at the grand opening of Bellagio Resort & Casino’s glamourous new supper club, The MayfairLeona LewisNina Dobrev, Tanner Novlan and Kayla Ewell, Candice and Joe King, Shaun White and Daniel Bamdad were amongst the revelers. On Friday, Lady Gaga brought 100 of her dancers and friends to The Mayfair for an early New Year’s celebration before the restaurant opened to the public.

Filled with live performances and surprise acts, The Mayfair Supper Club overlooks the Bellagio Fountains and evolves from a swinging prohibition-era jazz club to a late-night dance party that modernizes the Roaring ‘20s for the 2020s.

British singer-songwriter and “X-Factor” star Leona Lewis headed to Vegas to support new hubby Dennis Jauch, who is co-founder of No Ceilings Entertainment, the production powerhouse that produced The Mayfair’s incredible entertainment experience. The duo, who tied the knot in Italy this summer, met in 2010 when Jauch was a dancer on her tour.  Throughout the night, Lewis was glued to performances by the dancers, singers and musicians – many of whom she saw during the casting process – snapping pictures and videos and congratulating Jauch.

“Vampire Diaries” cast Nina Dobrev, Tanner Novlan and wife Kayla Ewell, and Candice (Accola) King reunited at the bash celebrating New Year’s Eve at a Fountain-side table, dining and dancing into the early morning. Olympic champion and snowboarding legend Shaun White, and Accola’s husband and The Fray’s guitarist Joe King, also joined the party. At midnight, the Novlans rang in 2020 with a sweet kiss on The Mayfair’s dance floor.

Lewis, Dobrev, Ewell and King complimented each other’s stunning NYE attire and joined together for celebratory photos, followed by Lewis and Dobrev snapping selfies together.

German model Daniel Bamdad was pulled on stage, blindfolded and fed cream pie as singers and dancers teased him during one of The Mayfair’s boundary-breaking performances that concluded with a hilarious bait and switch that had Bamdad – and guests throughout the restaurant – roaring.

Bellagio to Debut Lakeside Supper Club

Renowned for a portfolio of ‘must-visit’ experiences that forever transformed the city, Bellagio will once again change the way visitors think about a night on the town with the launch of The Mayfair Supper Club over New Year’s weekend.

Inspired by top supper clubs in London and around the world, The Mayfair will redefine the traditional “dinner and a show” for today’s traveler with a restaurant that evolves throughout the evening, amplifying in energy as dusk shifts to night. Guests will be able to indulge in contemporary American cuisine while enjoying live entertainment performances nightly, set to the greatest backdrop in the world – the Bellagio Fountains.

“The experience will be fun and memorable and feel like a return to the glamour eras of Las Vegas and old New York when dinner and a show was the place to be seen,” said MGM Resorts International Senior Vice President of F&B Strategy Ari Kastrati. “The Mayfair’s food and beverage menus will pay homage to all the greatest hits of classic American dining.”

MGM Resorts partnered with London and New York-based Martin Brudnizki Design Studios to create whimsical moments that transport guests to a fanciful and flexible environment – from a backdrop for a delightful meal to a high-energy lounge with moments of surprise.

MGM Resorts President of Events and Nightlife Sean Christie said, “The Mayfair will bring together the best elements of what makes Las Vegas the world-famous destination it is, in ways that celebrate our past, channel our present and define the future of a memorable night out on the Las Vegas Strip.” The Mayfair also will serve as the ideal location for guests to book special events.
