A McDonald's For Hangovers, Err, Hipsters? 24-Hour Metro McD's Now Open On The Strip
3717 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map]
Bright lights, Big Mac.
We spotted it last week in the new two-story Walgreens on The Strip (the larger building apparently being called the Harmon Retail Center, FYI), but we didn't know that the McDonald's we spied was so... metropolitan. Until now.
A "one-of-a-kind" Metro McDonald's is now open on the ground floor of the building, just to the east of Las Vegas Boulevard and right next to the coming Tropical Smoothie Cafe. (Decisions, decisions.)
So, what makes this McD's so
special metro? It's open 24 hours (ohh), offers digital menus (ahh) and WiFi (yeah!) and is two stories tall (what?). Yes, a two-story McDonald's. On The Strip. Open round the clock. It will also feature "sleek furniture and graffiti-like murals." Ohh, that's where the metro comes in. Because delicious starts here, but art apparently doesn't. That's over at The Cosmopolitan. Duh.
A grand opening throwdown will take place Friday, May 4 from midnight to 6 a.m. A perfect pit spot in between clubs. In fact, just consider it another club because McDonald's is planning to roll out a red carpet, host a live DJ, and fill the joint with showgirls and celebrity servers. (Now, things are getting interesting...) Stop by from midnight and 4 a.m. and 10 percent of your bill will go to the Ronald McDonald House.
