NoMad Las Vegas officially opened its doors to the public Friday, Oct. 12, bringing the refinement of a European home to Park MGM, the city’s newest resort (Pictured: NoMad Las Vegas Classic Manhattan – Photo credit: Benoit Linero).
Conceived by Sydell Group in partnership with 2017 World’s Best Restaurant winners Chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara, NoMad Las Vegas offers highly personalized and holistic service paired with understated sophistication, comfort and intimacy.
Designed by French architect Jacques Garcia, NoMad Las Vegas’ 293 rooms and suites, situated on the top four floors of Park MGM, reflect Garcia’s timeless style, with a distinct New York sensibility. Each room is thoughtfully appointed with custom-designed furnishings, hardwood floors, Bellino linens, custom Argan bathroom products and original art-work curated by Paris- based design studio be-poles, who have been an integral part of the NoMad hotels from inception.
“I am so pleased to be bringing our NoMad family to Las Vegas and can’t wait to share it with the world,” said Andrew Zobler, Founder & CEO of the Sydell Group.
NoMad Las Vegas marks the first Las Vegas culinary offerings from Humm and Guidara’s Make It Nice, whose portfolio includes the NoMad hotels in New York and Los Angeles, Made Nice and the famed Eleven Madison Park in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, which has garnered six James Beard Foundation Awards, has three Michelin stars, and was ranked the No. 1 restaurant by the World’s 50 Best in 2017.
The classical theatres of France inspire the design of NoMad Bar, an all-day dining destination with breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night menus curated by Chef Humm. During the day, a velvet Austrian sheer curtain, custom-made by the Rosebrand theatre production company, cloaks the bar. In the evening, the curtain rises to reveal a bar environment reminiscent of its New York counterpart, which is No. 1 in North America and No. 4 among the World’s 50 Best Bars.
Chef Humm said, “It is an honor to be a part of this incredible culinary community. The entire NoMad team is excited to bring our brand of delicious food and gracious hospitality to the millions of people that visit and love this amazing city. We feel so very lucky to be welcomed here.”
NoMad’s eclectic and always-evolving beverage program is created and managed by Bar Director Leo Robitschek, whose passion for the perfect cocktail has earned him critical acclaim, including the 2014 James Beard Award for Outstanding Bar Program and the “America’s Best Bar Team” honor at the 2017 Spirited Awards. The Restaurant, a NoMad signature, will make its debut in November 2018 along with private dining spaces and meeting rooms.
Guidara said, “We’ve always been inspired by the theatricality of Las Vegas and have been waiting for the right opportunity to come here and be part of this incredible hospitality scene. And finally, we found that opportunity. We’re so excited to bring the NoMad to The Strip. There’s nothing more fun than serving people looking to have fun and there’s no better place in the world than here to do that.”
The first-ever NoMad Casino sits beautifully poised under the historic Tiffany glass ceiling that is original to the former Monte Carlo. The high-limit gaming floor, with blackjack, baccarat and roulette, takes inspiration from the old-world glamour of European casinos and the playfulness of the hotel’s new home on the Las Vegas Strip. Taking cues from the Tiffany ceiling, Garcia’s design draws on its pentagonal shape, mirrored in the casino’s geometry, leaning in an art deco direction as a nod to the 20th century building. The bar at the Casino showcases Robitschek’s expertly crafted cocktails.
Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts International President, said “We have long admired the expertise of Sydell Group and Will and Daniel to create hotels and destinations that cultivate such a strong sense of place. Arriving at NoMad Las Vegas through its private entrance, you immediately feel transported to a world of romance and refinement, where you can craft an entirely new kind of Las Vegas experience for yourself.”
Opening in spring 2019, guests will be drawn to the NoMad’s luxurious and tranquil pool, a garden-like oasis inspired by the Majorelle Gardens of Morocco.
