The Red Rock in Las Vegas was originally built as a “local’s casino.” They spent $950 million on its construction. Despite the “local” billing it received, it’s really an upscale casino for anyone. If you are coming to Las Vegas, you’ll want to put it on your list of places to visit.
I was fortunate enough to enjoy Red Rock before it was open to the general public. I was immediately impressed. I knew it would be something special.Once the general public got a taste, the city was abuzz with compliments and excitement. It wasn’t your average local’s casino; the Red Rock was upscale all the way.
Dining at the Red Rock
The Red Rock has many dining options–from quick food to the premier steakhouse. If you are anchor looking for a quick bite to eat, you can enjoy Fat Burger, Panda Express and other great fast food type options. There’s also a Starbucks inside to top it off.
I could write a series of articles just on the dining. The buffet at the Red Rock is a little pricey, but it’s good. I’ve eaten there for dinner, and I wasn’t disappointed. If you love Mexican food, give the Cabo Mexican Restaurant a try. The Grand Café is a nice coffee shop type dining option. The T-Bones Chophouse is excellent as well.
The Red Rock is home to the Cherry Nightclub. It’s a place to be seen and is always packed. The Red Rock also features concerts in various areas around the property. Last month Big Bad Voodoo Daddy performed in an intimate setting. The talented nightclub act Zowie Bowie performs weekly on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
For the kids, the Red Rock has a full movie theater and a Kid’s Quest. There’s something for everyone.
The Red Rock was built in Summerlin, which is the best community in Las Vegas. It’s upscale and that’s why the Red Rock was built the way it was. If you valet your vehicle, it’s commonplace to see high priced vehicles parked there–Bentley, Aston Martin, and so on. It’s conveniently located off I-215, so you can get there in a flash from the Las Vegas Strip.
I don’t think a trip to Vegas is complete without visiting the Red Rock. It’s just a great place to be at. The next time you are in Las Vegas, check it out.
