In a creative and entertaining homage to Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo, MGM Resorts is set to offer guests a chance to indulge in a unique drinking experience – a cocktail served in a driving shoe. This special offer, available from the 16th to the 18th of November, coincides with the Las Vegas Grand Prix weekend at the renowned Bellagio hotel.

Ricciardo, known for his exuberant Shoey celebration where he would drink champagne from his racing shoe on the podium, has inspired this unique concept. MGM Resorts captures the spirit of this celebration, inviting guests to experience the thrill of victory in a truly immersive way.

In their statement, MGM Resorts eloquently invites patrons to partake in this extraordinary experience: “At the Shoey Bar, we invite you to tap into that exhilarating feeling of victory, immersing yourself in the very essence of your favorite sport.

Experience the rush, savor the glory, and celebrate your passion for racing with us!”

But the Shoey Bar is just one aspect of the Grand Prix festivities. Food and racing enthusiasts can look forward to a pop-up Ferrari event featuring a luxurious four-course menu paired with exquisite wines from Hundred Acre wines, all curated by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Meanwhile, the Aria Resort and Casino is hosting the Alfa Romeo Experience, showcasing the team’s car models and racing gear, adding to the immersive F1 atmosphere.

The Grand Prix weekend kicks off with an opening ceremony on November 16, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Cosmopolitan. A “Cocktail Circuit” will lead participants to four bars featuring special cocktails from Thursday through Saturday. Additionally, art enthusiasts will be treated to a unique display of custom Formula 1 helmets, created by six local artists, adding a cultural dimension to this high-octane event.
