The Chelsea will offer guests a more avant-garde approach to entertainment than currently exists in Las Vegas. The 50,000 square-foot venue will feature cast glass chandeliers, a vintage lobby bar, private VIP opera boxes and a decorative grand staircase. In addition, remnant brick tiling, an eclectic collection of stage production props and the latest technology seamlessly woven throughout will come together to create a brilliant backdrop for concert-goers. The Chelsea can accommodate 3,000 guests, presenting Mars’ talent in an exciting up-close setting.
The New Year’s festivities commence with two shows by Bruno Mars on Dec. 29 and 31. Each celebration will begin at 9 p.m. inside The Chelsea, offering revelers the opportunity to soak in the unique atmosphere of the new space.
