In an interview with CMT Hot 20 Countdown’s Cody Alan, Shelton shared, “It’s unbelievable. Like literally some song that I accidentally stumbled into when I was 17 years old played that big of a part in my life. It’s crazy.”
The Ole Red Las Vegas marks the sixth addition to Blake Shelton’s bar portfolio. Positioned strategically in front of the Horseshoe and at the crossroads of one of the city’s most vibrant areas, this impressive $30 million, 27,000-square-foot venue spans four stories, providing a fusion of culinary delights and musical entertainment.
Adding to its allure, the establishment boasts a 4,500-square-foot rooftop bar that offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Las Vegas skyline. Situated directly across from the renowned Bellagio fountains, it is a prime destination for visitors seeking lively experiences and iconic views.
“If you are going to do something here, you’ve got to do it big,” Shelton shared in a press release for the Ole Red website. “Every time I’m in Vegas, I want some country music and Ole Red is the remedy for that.”
