SBE, a hospitality and real estate development company, and the Bellagio are teaming up for the Hyde Lounge Bellagio, to replace the property’s Fontana Bar.
The 12,000-square-foot, indoor-outdoor venue is set for a New Year's Eve 2011 grand opening.
“The move to bring the Hyde Lounge brand to Bellagio underscores the dynamic partnership forged between SBE and MGM Resorts International,” SBE CEO Sam Nazarian said in a statement.
Randy Morton, president and COO of Bellagio, said, “Bellagio is committed to offering our guests the very best in hospitality and entertainment; this partnership with Hyde Lounge Bellagio reinforces that in uncompromising fashion.”
SBE and Starck have tapped architect/designer Gulla Jonsdottir, of Los Angeles-based G+ Design, to collaborate on conceptualizing and executing the vision for Hyde Lounge Bellagio. Jonsdottir’s most recent projects include the Red O restaurant in Los Angeles, which Esquire magazine named “Best Design” in November 2010, and the Hollywood nightclubs MyStudio and Roxbury.
