The band pioneered the Las Vegas Rock residency with a sold-out run in 2012 and continues to push the limits of live performance.

More Big Changes On The Way For Mohegan Sun’s Nightlife

Mohegan Sun continues to revitalize its nightlife with renovations to Bow & Arrow Sports Bar, Lucky’s Lounge and The Dubliner

This summer, Mohegan Sun has heated things up in southeastern Connecticut with the launch of GLO At The Pool and VISTA Lounge at Wombi Rock. The nightlife scene has never been better and it’s only going to continue as big changes are in store for Bow & Arrow Sports Bar, as well as a complete redesign of Lucky’s Lounge and The Dubliner.
GLO At The Pool was one of the first big additions Mohegan Sun made to its nightlife scene. The idea was to create an atmosphere like no other in New England by transforming the pool and large outdoor terrace area, located on the third floor of the hotel, to a late night pool party with drinks, swimming, full service cabanas, fire pits, live DJs and celebrity appearances.  And that’s exactly what happened.  Since it’s sold out opening on Thursday, June 28th with special guests DJ Clinton Sparks and Redfoo of LMFAO, GLO has become a hot spot, averaging 300+ guests every Thursday and Saturday night.  Mohegan Sun and its dedicated nightlife staff couldn’t be happier, as expressed by Nightlife Manager Gregory Romeyn. “We are very pleased with the success of GLO At The Pool.  We thought it would be a cool, unique nightlife option here at Mohegan Sun and that seems to be the case by the excitement it’s gained and the number of people it attracts.”
While the party was going on outside, Mohegan Sun also set out to re-identify what used to be Leffingwells Martini Bar.  Now VISTA Lounge at Wombi Rock, ran by The Lyons Group, the newly re-designed ultra-lounge debuted on Saturday, July 21st with special celebrity host Jenny McCarthy.  The new features in VISTA Lounge At Wombi Rock came by way of a brand new, state-of-the-art sound system with a live DJ booth, two blackjack tables located near the far end of the lounge, all-new drink menu’s and a dance floor, as well as completely new furniture to relax with friends.
President and CEO of Mohegan Sun, Jeff Hartmann, is very pleased with the direction nightlife has taken and is even more excited for what’s still to come. “While we have always had some really great nightlife offerings, we felt it was time to give the programming a little boost and what better way to do that than to launch our new pool parties – GLO At The Pool – hosted by LMFAO,” said Hartmann. “We are also really excited about the renovations to Wombi Rock – launching the new VISTA Lounge – and this fall, are eager to unveil changes to Bow & Arrow Sports Bar and the space formerly occupied by Lucky’s Lounge and The Dubliner which is being transformed into one large 10,000 square-foot Irish Pub.
Part of those new initiatives will be the changes to Lucky’s Lounge and The Dubliner. Construction has begun to combine the two bars, making it one large Irish Pub. It is set to be completed by early fall of this year.  The new pub, which the name has yet to be revealed, will feature great entertainment, food and drinks, as well as design elements directly from Ireland.
It doesn’t stop there. Over in Casino of the Earth, Mohegan Sun’s Bow & Arrow Sports Bar is also undergoing some major upgrades.  A 16 – monitor HD wall display that is equivalent to a 184” screen will be the centerpiece to an impressive video wall.  The sports bar, which will feature programming from DIRECTV’s Professional and College Football packages, will have more seating, wireless tabletop speakers and a completely revamped audio system, in addition to great food and drinks.

The sports bar closed on July 29th for renovations and is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, August 30th. A grand opening celebration is set to take place on Wednesday, September 5th as the pro football season kicks off.
