A Strip resort is planning a new performance venue, the MGM Grand welcomes a new restaurant, a new yoga studio opens its doors and a bakery expands to sell booze.
Here's a look at several new businesses opening in the Las Vegas Valley:
Restaurateurs Michael and Jenna Morton opened their latest eatery this month at the MGM Grand.
Crush replaces Nobhill Tavern and focuses on small plates and wine, similar to the pairings offered at the couple’s Wynn restaurant, La Cave. Entrees also are offered.
The 7,000-square-foot Crush includes 230 seats and a distinctive décor.
It is open 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Melrose Family Fashions
Melrose Family Fashions opened a second Las Vegas location late last month, in the Loma Vista Shopping Center.
The store at 4600 Meadows Lane sells clothes for men, women and children that imitate major fashion brands.
The Texas-based clothing chain, which operates more than 100 stores across the Southwest, entered the Southern Nevada market in late October with a store at 2335 E. Lake Mead Blvd., North Las Vegas.
Melrose Family Fashions is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday.
103 Hot Pilates & Yoga
103 Hot Pilates & Yoga opened Nov. 22 at 4245 S. Grand Canyon Drive, Las Vegas.
The studio teaches five types of yoga and pilates classes in rooms with temperatures that range from 90 degrees to 100 degrees.
Owners say the 6,000-square-foot space was built with specialty materials that prevent mold growth and features a unique heating and humidifying system to keep the studio odor-free.
103 Hot Pilates & Yoga is open 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Gimme Some Sugar
Gimme Some Sugar Bake Shoppe opened this month at 19 S. Stephanie St., Henderson, in the Gold’s Gym shopping center.
The 1,400-square-foot eatery offers a variety of desserts, as well as a selection of champagne, wine, craft beer, coffee and tea.
Owners Kristen LoVullo and Ashley Mastowski have been baking cakes there for some time to sell online but only recently added a retail space and bar.
The bakery is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
The Cosmopolitan plans to open the Chelsea, a 40,000-square-foot performance and event venue, New Year’s Eve weekend.
The theater has adaptable seating that can accommodate a 750-person banquet or a 3,000-seat concert.
Bruno Mars is scheduled to host a pair of performances Dec. 29 and Dec. 31 to christen the new venue.
