Ole Red hits the Las Vegas Strip

This week saw the opening of a new country-music themed dining and entertainment complex on the Las Vegas Strip, Ole Red.

Country music star Blake Shelton opened the newest of his restaurants right in the centre of the Strip in front of Horseshoe on Las Vegas Boulevard. This follows his other successful eateries in Oklahoma, Florida and three in Tennessee.

At approximately 27,000 square feet with 686 seats, Ole Red Las Vegas is the brand’s largest location to date and the first in the western United States.

Before the opening Shelton said “If you are going to do something here, you’ve got to do it big. Every time I’m in Vegas, I want some country music and Ole Red is the remedy for that.” And he certainly went big!

The imposing four-story venue features three interior bars, a rooftop bar, 2 live music stages and a 37-foot-tall LED video wall. It offers themed food such as ‘Redneck Nachos’ and ‘Blue Tick Burger’ lots of drink options and will showcase some of the leading up-and-coming country music stars.

Shelton said “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 centre of the Strip, and it’s the perfect place to come, have some great food and drinks, and listen to some country music.”

As with most new things in Vegas, you might want to book if you’re planning on going. Queues have been out the door early on, although you can apparently skip them if all you are wanting is a drink.
