Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa unveils its winter wonderland transformation and welcomes the holidays with the launch of Merry Crimson, the completion of a larger-than-life Red Rock Casino replica gingerbread house, the introduction of a whimsical cocktail menu and the sale of sweet treats to take the spirited festivities home, including the season’s hottest beverage trend – the hot cocoa bomb.
Merry Crimson, a seasonally-inspired, indoor, outdoor pop-up holiday bar debuts November 27. The over-the-top holiday décor, iconic photo moments and menu of Instagram-worthy cocktails brings the North Pole straight to Summerlin – a setup so spectacular even Clark Griswold would approve. Guests will enter through an enchanting tunnel of colorful lights and ornaments which, at the end, opens to a whimsical wonderland of holiday themed moments and vignettes filled with a candy cane swing set, a giant Santa Claus front and center, a fireplace for a real life elf on the shelf and a Moët champagne vending machine with proceeds benefitting Opportunity Village. The outdoor, poolside terrace features a wonderfully lit wall with a display of blow up Santa and his reindeer landing on the Crimson roof. Guests can enjoy fire pits, or heated cabanas and order a s’mores kit for roasting.
Guests looking to make a weekend out of their visit can book the “Stay and Sleigh” package which offers 25% off room rates and a $50 credit to use at Merry Crimson (two night minimum required). The package can be booked at the following link: https://www.redrockresort.com/stay/hotel-promotions/.
The Bake Shop at Red Rock Casino team unveiled a nearly five-foot-tall by nine feet long gingerbread replica of the resort prominently displayed in the middle of the casino floor. With over 500 hours of labor and ten talented bake shop and carpentry team members putting the masterpiece together, the “Gingerbread Hotel” features all the details of the resort – just made of edible sweets. Be sure to check out the life-size gingerbread dollhouse inside Merry Crimson, complete with miniature furniture, and light up features.
