The Luxor pyramid with its beam of light provides a striking visual even on the overtly glamorous Las Vegas Strip. One of the most recognizable structures in Las Vegas, the 30-story architectural wonder invites curiosity, while the inside rewards visitors with equal parts excitement, mystery and intrigue.
A magnificent lobby greets guests, drawing eyes upward to one of the world’s largest atriums and then inward where the action awaits. With a 120,000-square-foot gaming area, delectable dining, stimulating nightlife and top-notch entertainment, Luxor is an unparalleled travel destination.


CRISS ANGEL Believe™ from Cirque du Soleil – CRISS ANGEL Believe is a haunting exploration deep inside the inventive mind of mystifier Criss Angel as he hovers between the land of the living and a surreal world uniquely woven together by the distinctive imaginations of Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil. Unlike traditional magic-themed shows, CRISS ANGEL Believe transcends any preconceived notions of what it means to be emotionally engaged by the arts of mysticism and illusion. CRISS ANGEL Believe is presented in a custom-built theater adjacent to the Luxor casino floor.

FANTASY – Set in Luxor’s Atrium Showroom, this provocative adult revue starring powerhouse vocalist and exotic beauty Lorena Peril features an array of gorgeous dancers, talented vocals, fresh choreography and a touch of comedy. The show’s talented dancers perform sexy routines set to some of today’s hottest hits encompassing pop, rock, country and Latin genres. Choreographed by award-winning choreographer Cris Judd and Gustavo Vargas from Canada’s “So You Think You Can Dance” and produced by Emmy-award winner Anita Mann, FANTASY puts a sexy and contemporary twist on the classic icon of the Las Vegas showgirl.
Carrot Top – After touring the country with his renowned comedy show for more than 15 years, comedian Carrot Top is a permanent headliner at Luxor’s Atrium Showroom. With a knack for rock ‘n’ roll gadgets and in-your-face energy, Carrot Top’s super imaginative performances and outrageous style have made him a pop culture phenomenon. Known as a genius when it comes to inventive props, Carrot Top pokes fun at cultural icons, rednecks and more.

Menopause The Musical® – Inspired by a hot flash and a bottle of wine, writer and producer Jeanie Linders created the show as a celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived “The Change.” From its first performance, the show has evolved as a “grass-roots” movement of women who deal with life after 40 and all the challenges that result in the mental, physical and spiritual freedom of the post-World War II baby boomer generation. This hilarious show has launched a women’s movement that has superseded entertainment, empowered its audiences and become a must-see event. Consisting of parodies from the classic songs of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, the show is filled with optimism, connection and laughter.

Nightlife, Lounges and Bars (Ages 21 and Older)

LAX Nightclub Las Vegas – LAX Nightclub caters to a young, sophisticated crowd and is a destination of choice for discriminating club-goers, A-list celebrities and the social jet set.

The second story serves as an ultra-VIP level and features seven individual VIP lofts seemingly suspended over the main dance floor that come complete with amenities fit for a king. Bottle service is offered throughout the venue. With an unrivaled décor featuring a top-tier sound system perfect for multiple music styles, LAX is one of the most talked about clubs in the country.

Savile Row – Angel Management Group has redefined exclusivity with Savile Row, an intimate 2,000-square-foot haven where only members and invited guests are granted access. Reminiscent of the infamous street in London, Savile Row caters to an eclectic group with a “made-to-measure” experience. Specialized VIP services, a creative mixology program, reliable discretion and a seductive atmosphere will be the standard. Those lucky enough to enter will be the envy of all partygoers.

Complementing the menu is an equally innovative drink menu featuring classic cocktails and contemporary creations. Renowned designer Thomas Schoos created a comfortably modern atmosphere, while paying homage to the American West. Old reclaimed barn wood, Longhorn chandeliers and modern black and white photography of rustic, American landscapes give TENDER steak & seafood a distinctly western appeal.

T&T (Tacos & Tequila) – World-renowned restaurateur and chef Richard Sandoval teamed up with Alvarez + Brock Design to create this fun, energetic dining experience. The menu includes Sandoval’s unique presentation of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and a drink program highlighted by an extensive list of tequila selections, specialty cocktails and infused tequilas. Five icons of Mexican culture – the sombrero, the shot glass, the bullfight, skeletons and seductive women – inspired the design concept. For a little added spice, guests may enjoy the Mariachi Brunch every Sunday, featuring zesty entrées, drink specials and live music.

Luxor’s casino includes popular table games such as Blackjack, Baccarat, Roulette, Pai Gow and Craps as well as the latest in slot machines, the Race & Sports Book and the Bruce Buffer Poker Room. Buffer, the popular voice of the UFC and an avid poker player, hosts a variety of tournaments, autograph signings and additional activities over the course of select UFC event weekends.

Luxor’s casino-floor design flows the water motif of the center bar Liquidity out onto the gaming floor with plush carpet, wall coverings, wave-patterned columns and alluring light fixtures, all in a varying color palette of cool blues, vibrant purples and plums. Custom-designed ergonomic slot bases and chairs provide a hip, contemporary look and feel, mirroring the dynamic energy of the distinct casino floor venues.

MGM Resorts Installs First Personal Electric Vehicle Charging Station On Las Vegas Strip
Posted July 8, 2011
MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) today debuted the Company’s first Electric Vehicle Charging Station and the first such facility on the Las Vegas Strip for environmentally conscious consumers driving the cleanest, most advanced vehicles on the road.

This new Charging Station is located at the valet entrance to The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, between Mandalay Bay and Luxor resorts. Charging service is available free of charge to retail and resort customers driving personal electric vehicles, like the Nissan LEAF and the Chevy Volt.

“This is a tremendous first for The Shoppes and our customers. We all share in our commitment to environmental sustainability,” said Brian Robison, Vice President & General Manager of The Shoppes at Mandalay Place. “To have the first public electric car charging station on the Strip is an honor for us and a convenience for our like-minded customers. We hope they get a real ‘charge’ out of shopping with us.”

To take advantage of this new amenity, drivers simply pull into one of the two specially designated parking spaces reserved exclusively for personal electric vehicles and plug into the easy-to-use PEP Station to charge their vehicle. Each station has a touch-screen interface that guides users through steps to safely charge their electric vehicle.

Two celebrities of the sustainability world were on hand to mark the occasion and assist with a debut of the charging facility.

-Chef Rick Moonen, best-selling author and one of the world’s leading advocates for the use of sustainable seafood in the food industry

-The Nissan LEAF, one of the most sought-after vehicles on the road today and, according to USA Today, the top-selling electric vehicle in the U.S. for the first six months of 2011

“I couldn’t be more proud that Mandalay Place is first with this forward-thinking program,” said Chef Moonen. “Someone has to take the leadership role and I’m happy MGM Resorts is willing to move toward a better way of doing things.”

Chef Moonen, known for his appearances on national television programs like Bravo’s “Top Chef,” also operates the two rm seafood restaurants inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Place.

MGM Resorts energy experts say this is an important first step that reflects the Company’s continued commitment to environmental responsibility in the hospitality industry.

“Consumer demand for this type of equipment is just in its earliest stages, but like anything new, its growth must be fostered by those who believe in it most,” said Cindy Ortega, MGM Resorts Sr. Vice President of Energy and Environmental Services. “Now is the most important time for companies like MGM Resorts to show our support, so others - consumers, car manufacturers and rental car agencies - feel comfortable enough to enter this important emerging market.”

Luxor Unlocks Green Key Certification
Posted January 20, 2011
Luxor is going green and getting recognized. By taking significant steps to reduce our environmental impact like using desert landscaping to conserve water, retrofitting lighting to reduce electricity use and introducing a recycling program, we are truly making a difference. All of the hard work has paid off with acknowledgement from the Green Key Eco-Rating Program, a program that certifies hotels based on green practices.

Luxor was recently awarded 4 out of 5 Keys, a rating that is recognized in guidebooks and on Web sites such as AAA, Travelocity and Expedia. Twelve MGM Resorts International properties pursued the certification and all became the first Green Key members in Nevada and Michigan.

Green Key member properties are listed at [url][/url], a valuable resource for environmentally conscious travelers. Green Key rankings are recognized by major travel services including AAA, Travelocity and Expedia.
