Bruno Mars to open Las Vegas jazz bar

Mars teams with MGM for The Pink Ring to open in 2024

Superstar singer, songwriter, producer and musician Bruno Mars and the legendary Bellagio Resort & Casino join forces to introduce The Pinky Ring, a one-of-a-kind cocktail lounge and jazz bar in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip in early 2024.

“I’ve been performing in Vegas for years, and I’ve always wanted a place where I could throw glamorous parties when I’m in town,” Mars shares. “A place that felt like my personal penthouse suite, with live music and sensational cocktails. The Pinky Ring is that.”

“There’s nobody in the world as fabulous as Bruno Mars,” adds Ari Kastrati, MGM Resorts International’s’ Chief Hospitality Officer. “It’s been a fun experience to let him take the reins to reimagine this space. From the carpet to the ceiling, this is all him. As we celebrate Bellagio’s 25th anniversary this year and look toward the future, collaborating with one of the entertainment industry’s biggest stars to reimagine what a night out in Las Vegas should represent an incredible moment in this resort’s story.”

Moody lighting, live music, DJs spinning vinyl, a specialty bar program, and best-in-class audio will be the backdrop for an incredible night out at The Pinky Ring.

Located centrally on Bellagio’s casino floor, in the former Lily Bar & Lounge space, The Pinky Ring will open in early 2024. Additional details will be shared in the coming months.

Mars is set to close 2023 with five shows as part of his Park MGM residency at Dolby Live. The final show dates are December 22nd, 23rd, 28th, 30th and 31st.

In 2021, Mars made history as the first artist ever to receive five RIAA diamond certified singles. Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and “When I Was Your Man” have both been diamond certified, selling and streaming over 10 million copies and bringing his total certifications to five. This follows the diamond certifications of “Just the Way You Are, “Grenade,” and “Uptown Funk! with Mark Ronson. Furthermore, “Just the Way You Are” is 12x multi-platinum, “Uptown Funk!” and “When I Was Your Man” are 11x multi-platinum, and “Grenade” and “That’s What I Like” are 10x multi-platinum.

Mars became the first male and third act overall to have at least three top five Hot 100 hits from each of his first three albums, following only Mariah Carey and Beyoncé. Mars is also the first artist to have two songs spend 24 or more weeks in the Hot 100’s Top 5 (“That’s What I Like” and “Uptown Funk”). Honorably, Mars is one of the few artists to have written and produced all of his No. 1 hits and has had a No. 1 song on the Hot 100 from each of his first three studio albums.

With eight Hot 100 No. 1s, Mars is ranked No. 1 among male artists with the most Hot 100 No. 1s for this decade, extending his lead over Justin Bieber, Drake, Eminem, and The Weeknd. Most recently, Silk Sonic – the collaboration project with Anderson .Paak – received their first No. 1 with their debut single “Leave The Door Open.”
