MGM Resorts has pulled the curtain behind its plans for the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix set to take place next month. 

The grandstand for the race will be located at the Bellagio Fountain and MGM has ensured that it will create an “astonishing” experience for F1 fans as it debuts in the gambling capital of the world. 

“We’re curating an experience at the Bellagio Fountain Club that offers guests the absolute best of F1 – from incredible views of the race and exceptional cuisine and beverages to an astonishing live Dolby Vision experience on LG OLED TVs, to getting up close with the winners post-race,” said Andrew Lanzino, Vice President of Citywide Events Strategy. 

“We’re incredibly honored to host the Las Vegas Grand Prix’s Winner’s Stage for what we believe will be one of the weekend’s most iconic moments.”

For the race weekend, MGM will be hosting the Bellagio Fountain Club which will be the location of special events and experiences across the weekend. 

Members of the Bellagio Fountain Club can expect high-quality culinary experiences with several celebrity chiefs on site, while entertainment aside from racing will be offered. 

Celebrity and Michelin-starred chefs including Jose Andres, Christina Todi, Alain Ducasse, and Rainer Becker will join a rotating roster of cooks who will introduce new daily menus all day and into the night. 

Meanwhile, a roster of mixologists and sommeliers will produce a list of cocktails and wines throughout the weekend, from 6pm November 16-18. 

MGM has partnered with entertainment company Dolby to bring LG TVs to deliver streams of the racing action through Dolby Vision. Eighty Dolby Vision-enabled LG OLED evo TVs will power the activation at the Bellagio Fountain Club.

“The Bellagio Fountain Club will marry the epic F1 experience with MGM Resorts’ unbelievable talents and iconic destinations, ultimately creating an exclusive and legendary race day experience right atop the resort’s Fountains,” said Steve Zanella, MGM Resorts’ Chief Commercial Officer. 

“This is just the beginning for F1 fans coming to Vegas. No one throws a party like our city, and we’re primed to make the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix the world’s most sought-after race experience.”

The luxury offering gives patrons ‘unrivaled’ track and fountain views, meet and greets with F1 ambassadors, unlimited food and drinks, and access to private indoor hospitality.
