MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
MGM Grand’s top attraction is its MGM Grand Garden Arena, which has been hosting Vegas’ biggest events since the mid-’90s. Professional boxing championships are often the most sought-after tickets, but college sports, award shows, and concerts by major stars like Carrie Underwood also take place there. Additional entertainment at the hotel includes the magic of David Copperfield, the Cirque du Soleil show “KA,” and Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club.
Drinking and dining are in no short supply at MGM Grand, with nightclubs that host renowned DJs like Calvin Harris, the Wet Republic Ultra Pool (often part of Vegas pool party passes), and the Michelin 3-star Joël Robuchon restaurant.
