It’s official – Ole Red Las Vegas is OPEN! The Blake Shelton-inspired bar, restaurant, and music venue, which is operated by Opry Entertainment Group, a division of Ryman Hospitality Properties, opened its doors in Sin City on Monday, January 15.
Ole Red Las Vegas spans four stories and now stands as the largest among the six Ole Red locations. It boasts 27,000 square feet and accommodates 686 seats. The establishment features a spacious 4,500 square foot rooftop, offering guests panoramic views of the Las Vegas cityscape and is equipped with three interior bars, a rooftop bar, two stages, a 16-feet-wide by 37-feet-high LED video wall, a retail area, and a VIP experience with event space for groups.
The Biggest Ole Red Yet
This venue is dedicated to delivering a live music experience with cutting-edge acoustics and lighting, ensuring a concert-quality performance every day of the week. The inaugural lineup for opening week includes top-tier country acts from Nashville, alongside beloved bands and DJs from the vibrant Las Vegas scene.
“I couldn’t be more excited about this Ole Red and what we have to offer people coming to Las Vegas looking for entertainment. This location is right in the thick of things, dead center of the strip, and it’s the perfect place to come, have some great food and drinks, and listen to some country music,” Shelton shared in a statement. “This bar is huge with balconies and indoor and outdoor stages. There’s nothing else like it in Vegas, and it’s perfect!”
What’s On The Menu?
Ole Red Las Vegas offers a from-scratch menu with standout items like the “Redneck Nachos” and the “Blue Tick Burger.” Exclusive to Las Vegas, discover over 15 new additions, including the mouthwatering “Blackberry Crispy Chicken Sliders,” the savory “Hillbilly Bone St. Louis Ribs,” and the delectable “Ole Red Ribeye.” Complementing these culinary delights is an extensive array of specialty cocktails, beer, and wine. See the full menu HERE.
Ole Red Las Vegas is located at 3267 S. Las Vegas Blvd. Located at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, it stands proudly in front of Caesars Entertainment’s Horseshoe Las Vegas at the Grand Bazaar Shops.
The brand new Ole Red joins the other five locations, including two in Nashville (one on Broadway and one at the airport), one in Orlando, Florida, another in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and one in his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. The Las Vegas location, however, is on an entirely different scale.
“I’ve seen this phase of the process enough times to know that I can picture it now and there’s similarities to all the Ole Reds, and there’s some similarities to… Nashville with the balcony that looks down on the stage and the bar placement and all that stuff,” Shelton recently explained to People.
“But it’s also just so much bigger,” he added. “I mean, this is a giant, and so I don’t know that I would say I’m emotional, but it is overwhelming and it’s hard for me to take it all in right now and just accept that this is really happening and we’re almost to the finish line.”
Blake Shelton will soon launch his Back to the Honky Tonk Tour with special guests Dustin Lynch and Emily Ann Roberts. The trek is set to kick off on February 22 in Hershey, PA, and runs through March 29 in Wichita, KS.
Shelton said he’s “looking forward to hitting the road again” following the first leg of the tour, which ran February 16 through March 25, 2023.
