NORTHFIELD, Ohio — Northeast Ohio residents and visitors alike can now get a taste of Las Vegas’ nightlife here in Greater Cleveland with the opening of MGM Northfield Park on Wednesday.

MGM resorts, owner-operator of casinos such as Mandalay Bay, Mirage, New York New York, Luxor, Excalibur and Monte Carlo acquired the operating assets of the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield early this month.

“This is an exciting day for all of us and one that we’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” said MGM Northfield Park President and COO Chris Kelley. “It is a privilege to welcome the talented Northfield Park team into the MGM Resorts family. Congratulations to all of our employees who worked so hard to get us to this major milestone.”

Visitors to the park will be greeted by the iconic MGM lion in the form of a 7-foot-tall statue when they enter the casino grounds.

The casino didn’t just get a rebranding. The sprawling facility was reworked to give visitors a taste of Las Vegas while retaining local flavor.

Visitors looking for a souvenir from their trip to the casino can visit The Shop.

The casino offers new food options with TAP Sports Bar, The Buffet, The Roasted Bean and the Center Bar and Lounge.

MGM Northfield Park is also home to entertainment amenities such as Center Stage, a 1,900-seat concert venue and The Neon Room, a “high energy space that hosts fun programming events and serves as a rental facility for corporate and special events.”
