Hakkasan Group announced its acclaimed daylife destination, WET REPUBLIC Ultra Pool at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino will undergo a multi-million dollar revamp in time for summer 2020. The award-winning poolside space will welcome new pools, an expanded artist performance space, upgraded cabanas and bungalows and audio-visual design.
“WET REPUBLIC is a renowned daylife leader not only in Las Vegas, but around the world,” said Derek Silberstein, executive vice president of nightlife for Hakkasan Group in a statement. “Our reputation is anchored by crafting remarkable experiences for our guests. The revamp of WET REPUBLIC and its impressive new offerings allows us to continue to do so on an unprecedented level.”
Guests will be able to enjoy a reconstructed artist performance space featuring a custom DJ booth with new audio-visual production. The new performance space will be seen from anywhere in the venue, making for a more engaging artistic experience.
The summer 2020 season will also feature new state-of-the-art audio-visual technology that has only ever been experienced in a Vegas nightclub. The L-Acoustics Kara and ARCS II speakers are the same sound technology used in Hakkasan Group’s OMNIA Nightclub and music festivals Coachella and Tomorrowland.
A massive 4,000-square-foot LED display will complement the new sound system. The multi-faceted screen will feature a 13-foot interactive cube with pixel-mapping and color-mixing capabilities.
If all of that doesn’t sound impressive enough, two new plunge pools spanning nearly 100 square feet in length will keep guests cool and refreshed. After swimming, pool-goers will be able to relax in updated cabanas. The cabanas will be refreshed with a mahogany wood beam ceiling and new interior that includes custom teak wood furniture upholstered with blue boucle fabric.
The cabanas that line the north and south side of WET REPUBLIC will also be upgraded with clean blue and white color palettes, new teak wood sofas and ottomans, cabinetry stain topped by a blended blue marble countertop and a giant flat screen TV.
In addition to the architectural and audio-visual changes, WET REPUBLIC Ultra Pool will also revamp their pool parties with new themes and props for VIP bottle presentations, new food and beverage offerings, and much more.
Stay tuned for more details on the changes coming to WET REPUBLIC Ultra Pool at MGM Grand in summer 2020.
