Gamers’ Paradise Opens on the Strip
Esports Arena Las Vegas, the Strip’s first dedicated playground for gamers, has opened at the Luxor Hotel & Casino.
Featuring a unique blend of live experiences, streaming and tournament play, the space encompasses 30,000 square feet spanning three connected areas. There is a Main Hall containing the main competition stage, an array of gaming stations, a two-story video wall, upper- and lower-level VIP rooms, two bars and multimedia production facilities; the Dome, housing a 360-degree video board and an interactive display dedicated to the history of gaming; and a third area, the Front Lobby, as it’s called, fitted with additional gaming stations, a streaming booth and a virtual reality experience.
A gaming-inspired food and beverage offering, developed by celebrity chef José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup, promises to be another highlight.
Last Thursday’s debut, an invitation-only event, brought more than 20 top eSports talents to the arena, headlined by live team matches pitting SonicFox against GO1, Rogue versus Ghost Gaming in Rocket League and eUnited vs. Spacestation in SMITE.
Regular operating hours commenced this week.
