Eataly Las Vegas is celebrating its first summer at Park MGM on the Las Vegas Strip with daily Italian happy hours and exclusive events, including a gelato festival.

“It's hard to find happy hours on the Strip,” said Eataly’s Store Director John Trockel. “As part of Summer at Eataly Las Vegas, we have over seven specials available every day.”

The Italian marketplace is offering traditional food and drink specials daily from 4 to 6 p.m. Cool off with a $10 Boozy Sorbetto at Il Gelato, or a $10 summer selection of Wine Flights at The Wine Shop (also available during reverse happy hour from 9 to 11 p.m.).

On Thursdays, La Pescheria will serve $1 oysters and Il Fritto will serve $1 polenta. Throughout July, the Gran Caffe will feature a Pallini pop-up bar with traditional Italian limoncello and liqueurs of Pallini.

Other daily specials include:
Rosé Hour - $11 glasses and $40 bottles of select rosés at Enoteca, just steps away from La Salumeria and Il Fritto
Spritz Hour - $11 Aperol Spritz at L'Aperitivo bar
Traditional Bites - Gran Caffé Milano features small bites (cicchetti) along with rosé, cocktails and Peroni beer

Eataly’s first-ever handcrafted gelato festival will take place from 2 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 27. The ticketed event will feature 10 stations throughout the store, including classic gelato, boozy gelato, affogato, savory gelato, sweet focaccia with gelato and special day-of flavors.

It may be summertime, but school is still in session weekly at the Chef’s Table, where guests can learn how to master a specialty Italian dish or drink during a quick, up-close-and-personal culinary lesson.

Master the art of shucking oysters with Eataly’s fishmongers and experts, learn how to open a full wheel of Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano, or expertly craft the perfect cocktail with Aperol and Campari. There are classes in pizza and pasta making, as well as crafting the perfect cannoli and much more.

“We're excited to bring shorter format Flash Classes so guests can take a class but still have time to explore the rest of the market,” said Trockel, adding, “Eataly is all about learning the stories behind each product and the producers.”
