TUNICA, Miss., April 3, 2014 – MGM Resorts International’s Gold Strike Casino Resort announced today that it has opened TEN10 Wine & Whiskey Bar, an intimate, ultra-lounge with an extensive collection of small batch whiskeys, numerous wines served by the glass and a broad selection of signature cocktails.
The menu features more than 60 brands of whiskey and scotch from all over the world, including Masterson’s 10-Year-Old Straight Rye Whiskey, Redbreast 12-Year-Old Irish Whiskey, Noah’s Mill Small Batch Bourbon, The Dalmore 15-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch and Lagavulin 16-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch. It also features more than 24 wines served by the glass, including Elk Cove Pinot Noir, Louis Martini Cabernet and Clos Pegase Chardonnay as well as a variety of signature cocktails.
TEN10 is located just off the casino floor in the space formerly known as L.A. Bar. The décor is an elegant design complete with distinct works of art and modern furniture to make patrons feel as though they have stepped into a lounge in Las Vegas.
“TEN10 is just one of the many renovations we have accomplished over the past year to provide our guests with truly first-class service and accommodations in all aspects of the resort,” said Nik Rytterstrom, general manager at Gold Strike. “We wanted to create a place where guests could enjoy premium bourbon and fine wines in an atmosphere that is truly one-of-a-kind for the region.”
The name, TEN10, derives from the address of the resort – 1010 Casino Center Drive. Open 24 hours a day, TEN10 will also have video poker machines and big-screen televisions. The first Thursday of each month, Gold Strike will host tastings to give guests the opportunity to sample items from the menu. The tastings will be complimentary and open to the public and will alternate between wine and whiskey. The series will launch with a whiskey tasting on Thursday, May 1.
In addition to the remodeling of TEN10, Gold Strike has remodeled many areas of the resort in the past year including Chicago Steakhouse, Buffet Americana, the M life desk and the casino host desk, as well as transformed the second floor into a smoke-free environment complete with a gaming area, the Millennium Theatre and convention center.
