Albert Mack has a truly unique perspective on what Las Vegas is and what it can be. As the grandson of Jerry Mack—the pioneering financier and developer who helped create the city’s modern metropolitan landscape—Albert Mack has an acute understanding of the Vegas experience. “He was always instilling in me that the building process has a long way to go, and that our generation will be the ones that will help mold what this city will become,” Mack says. “That’s what brought me back to Las Vegas, the opportunity that so many people have to shape this city into something even more incredible.”
After working in real estate development and in management at Wynn Las Vegas, Mack has created his own hospitality company and its first concept will open this week—Sake Rok, an interactive restaurant and lounge on the brand-new Park entertainment district adjacent to T-Mobile Arena on the Strip.
“Las Vegas is always at the forefront of pushing the envelope in creating new experiences, but it almost seems like from the dining perspective, a lot are the same,” Mack says. “You’re going in for a meal, but that’s not your night. At Sake Rok, you can come in and immerse yourself in not just the food and drink but the entertainment and everything you see around you. Everything is done so you’re thinking, let’s go to that restaurant because it’s going to make our night.”
Leave it to a member of one of Vegas’ most famous families to find the next evolution in entertainment. “We want you to come back the next night, too, and see something new, and we think that’s Vegas at its best.”
