Hotelier Sam Nazarian's company, Los Angeles-based SBE Entertainment Group, will open a nightclub inside the new Las Vegas Arena, opening in April 2016 between MGM Resorts International's New York-New York Hotel & Casino and Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, it announced last week.

Part of SBE's Hyde brand, the club -- Hyde Lounge at Las Vegas Arena -- will be located above the arena floor, offering views of the entertainment and sporting events taking place below. Totaling 18,000 square feet, it will sport two viewing platforms extending out over the arena, an intimate lounge experience with bottle service, plush couches, DJs, VIP elevator access, and food offerings.

"We are extremely proud to partner with the Las Vegas Arena team on this dynamic and forward-thinking development that will transform the Las Vegas landscape," Nazarian said. "Hyde provides an unrivaled nightlife scene that will leave a footprint as we enhance the brand with this large-scale viewing and event-driven destination."
Added Rick Arpin, senior vice president of entertainment for MGM Resorts International, which is developing the arena in partnership with AEG Facilities, "We are creating a world-class venue that will deliver a number of memorable moments to our guests, with Hyde Lounge at the top of the list. Hyde's ability to engage guests in a high-energy Las Vegas atmosphere while enjoying a major concert or sporting event is exactly the type of environment we want inside the Arena; it will be nothing short of spectacular."
