MGM Grand and Hakkasan Group are teaming up again to create Level Up, a gaming lounge set to open December 29 in the space formerly occupied by Rainforest Café adjacent to Hakkasan Nightclub.

“Level Up will be a popular high-energy gaming lounge that will offer our guests and visitors the newest entertainment experience to see and be seen,” MGM Grand President and COO Scott Sibella said in a statement. “Our goal is to create a fun, social atmosphere featuring a variety of traditional games, as well as games of skill, that showcase the industry’s leading technology.”

The 12,000-square-foot Level Up will offer both free and pay-to-play gaming options. In addition to billiards, foosball, ping pong, QuadAir Hockey, Bubble Hockey, Sigma Derby, Giant Pac-Man and Connect Four, it will offer the Level Up Arena by Interblock, a 40-seat arena replicating casino table games “in a more social environment.”

Level Up will also introduce an indoor laser golf course, which allows customers to play real-world golf courses on moving greens with laser guidance. A private lounge Golfstream Suite will be attached. The Live Lucky Bar will offer 24 craft beers and a specialty cocktail menu, and Level Up’s décor will include murals created by local artists. DJs and other entertainment will be featured live and across multiple screens.
