The Las Vegas Strip is the main attraction amongst tourists for when they visit the “entertainment capital of the world” aka Las Vegas. With the opening of the new T-Mobile Arena in April 2016 MGM Resorts rolled out their newest venture “The Park”, which is nestled between the T-Mobile Arena, Monte Carlo and New York-New York Resorts. The Park is a captivating outdoor dining and entertainment district. The centerpiece of The Park is a massive publicly displayed 40-ft tall sculpture called, Bliss Dance. The main attractions you can say are the fabulous restaurants and bars throughout The Park.
One of the most popular venues and a personal favorite of ours at CRAWL|LV is none other than Sake Rok. A massive 13,000+ square foot venue, Sake Rok is a vibrant restaurant/bar with an incredible terrace, which on the weekends is the heart of the party at The Park. The philosophy behind Sake Rok is: Sushi. Sake. Spectacle. The restaurant is inspired by Japan’s vibrant pop culture. Servers here are not only top of the line waiters/waitresses but they also double as the venues entertainers who invite guests to partake in restaurant-wide camaraderie. At Sake Rok expect the unexpected, including restaurant-wide sake bombs, impromptu dance parties and lip-sync serenades.
The menu at Sake Rok boasts Japanese favorites but with a unique twist thanks to chef Bobby Silva. Of course with the motto, “Sushi. Sake. Spectacle”, you can rest assure that they have some killer “sush”. Two must try’s that have become go-to’s for me when I dine at Sake Rok is the 49th state roll and the spicy samurai roll. The 49th state roll has…you guessed it: king crab, cucumber, avocado, salmon, and is finished off with a nice citrus aioli drizzle. The spicy samurai packs a nice punch with: spicy yellowtail, salmon, cucumber, red onions, then is topped with a jalapeno vinaigrette and chili threads. If you’re going with a big group of people be sure to check out their small plate section specifically their tuna and wagyu beef takaki plates. Sake Rok boasts three bars throughout the restaurant. One outside for visitors passing buying in need of a cold refreshment, as well as, a limited lunch service available during the day from 12pm-5pm. The second is located inside on the main level of the restaurants dining area. And the last one is on top of the venue, which is their terrace.
By night, Sake Rok transforms into a high-profile social dining extravaganza, immersing guests in an experience part culinary, part performance and most importantly fun unexpected shenanigans. And when I say shenanigans I mean it. They literally have a hype-man who they call the “master of ceremonies”, who can be quite outlandish at times, keep the energy of the room and of course the sake following late into the night as the restaurant transforms into a lively bar and lounge. They have live music throughout the week and of course on the weekends, which keeps the party going into the real late night that is synonymous with Vegas.
When visiting Vegas this is an experience you sure do not want to miss. Sake Rok is open 7 days a week for dinner starting at 5pm. Stop by for some sushi, private label sake, or any drink of your choice, you’ll be glad you did. Be a bar VIP at Sake Rok when you bar crawl with CRAWL|LV - get tickets by clicking the link below:
