With its own pool, casino, restaurant and unique approach to hospitality, the NoMad Hotel is the new sensation of Las Vegas.
A new luxury hotel aims to bring the refinement of a European home to Park MGM in Las Vegas. NoMad Las Vegas just opened its doors and it contains the NoMad hotel, casino, pool, NoMad Restaurant and NoMad Bar, led by the 2017 winners of the top spot on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, Daniel Humm and Will Guidara.
The NoMad Hotel is named after its neighborhood in New York (NOMAD = ΝΟrth of MADison Square Park). Its Las Vegas edition, created by Sydell Group in partnership with Make It Nice, is a place of rendezvous and romance, where elegant evenings and moments of chance mix with extraordinary food and gracious hospitality. The design, as in New York and in Los Angeles, is a collaboration with Jacques Garcia, drawing inspiration from the natural surroundings of the desert with a nod to the glamour and playfulness of The Strip.
The hotel offers highly personalized and holistic service paired with understated sophistication, comfort, and intimacy.
Located on the top four floors within the newly opened Park MGM, each of the 293 rooms and suites at NoMad Las Vegas are residential in feel and decorated in the designers timeless style with a distinct New York sensibility. Each room is appointed with custom furnishings, oak hardwood floors, original artwork curated by Paris-based design studio be-poles, Bellino linens, and custom Argan bathroom products. Continuing the synergy with its other properties, many rooms feature the iconic freestanding pedestal bathtubs, leather headboards, and paravent screens. The rooms include distinctive steamer trunks that have been transformed into minibars, echoing the original property in New York.
The hotel features the first-ever NoMad Casino, poised under the buildings historic Tiffany glass ceiling. The casino provides an intimately refined space to play roulette, blackjack, and baccarat. The high-limit gaming floor takes inspiration from the old-world glamour of European casinos and the playfulness of the hotel’s new home on The Strip. The Casino Bar showcases expertly crafted cocktails from acclaimed Bar Director Leo Robitschek. Taking cues from the Tiffany ceiling, Garcia draws on its pentagonal shape, which is mirrored in the Casino’s geometry, leaning in an art deco direction as a nod to the 20th Century building. As a way of honoring good luck in gaming, there are consistent references to peacocks throughout the gaming floor.
The renowned Royal Portuguese Cabinet of Reading in Rio de Janeiro inspires the NoMad Restaurant’s design. It features soaring 23-foot walls that showcase a remarkable collection of books that have been carefully curated, abundant but restrained. The color palette in the space blends emerald, amber, and mahogany with recessed banquets and an imported 18th-century French antique fireplace and staircase.
The classical theatres of France inspire the design of the NoMad Bar – deep bordeaux velvet is present throughout. During the day, an Austrian velvet and sheer curtain, custom made by Rosebrand, cloaks the Bar. The space also includes a Steinway piano that is staged in the corner of the room and will welcome intimate live performances.
The hotel’s private dining areas include: The Cellar which is an intimate space, befitting of its name with walls decorated with wine bottles old and new, vintage decanters, glassware and service pieces. The Salon is a lush, larger room that features a cocktail bar, alongside emerald green tufted walls and recessed seating. The Parlour room honors four famous female gamblers in the form of sculptural busts, along with a neoclassical frieze in celebration of female power and beauty. Vintage rugs are found throughout.
Like NoMad New York and Los Angeles, the art program for Las Vegas was developed by Be-poles and draws inspiration from its strong architectural DNA. The NoMad spirit honors the past while celebrating the future, encouraging the tension between uptown and downtown. The art program for Las Vegas aims to highlight this unique contrast by pulling neighborhood references from the 1980s and a certain European elegance of the 1960s juxtaposing them with contemporary imagery. To achieve this, vintage artworks have been sourced from antique stores throughout the US and Europe and have been combined with various collections from Portraits de Villes and original photography from commissioned artists. As a result, each guest room art selection and the offerings in the public spaces are unique; while at the same time communicates a consistent journey.
