Rockhouse celebrated the grand opening in its new location at The Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino on Thursday, February, 28th.
The iconic party bar opened at a new 9,000-square-foot location with the same high-spirited attitude that made the original one of the most popular venues on the Las Vegas Strip.
Rockhouse celebrated its grand opening with the first of many New Month’s Eve parties. Partygoers rang in the New Month in New Year’s Eve fashion with a midnight countdown, noisemakers and celebratory toasts. The New Month’s Eve parties will continue on the last day of every month through the end of 2013.
To kick-off the hot spot’s reopening, locals enjoyed the final night of the “99 Cent Bottles of Beer on the Wall” beer special.
The packed house included appearances by several celebrities and movers and shakers. In attendance were comedian/juggler Jeff Civilico, Fantasy dancer Stacey Smithson, Victor James and Alicia Perrone from the band Fans Of Jimmy Century, singer/songwriter Mar Soloman, entertainment journalists John Katsilometes, Judy Thorburn, Dianne R. Davis, Bobbie Katz and others.
Like the original, Rockhouse offers drinking games in the daytime and DJs at night, with a sexy bar staff that continually keeps the party going. The two-room venue features three bars, cocktail and high-top tables, and plenty of room for dancing. There are also 83 flat-panel televisions lining every wall of the interior to watch sporting events. The new Rockhouse also has something the original did not: a full menu of bar food.
Rockhouse is set up like an adult playroom, with tire swings for the bartenders and birdcages for dancing, as well as pool tables, beer pong tables and a mechanical bull.
Fine Entertainment closed the original location across from The Mirage in early May after six successful years in business to make way for The LINQ.
The new Rockhouse is open daily from 11 a.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. on weekends, closing late into the night.
