Circus Circus welcomes the "Great American Party" this June with the arrival of party bar Rock & Ritas, a new bar, restaurant and entertainment attraction. The rock-inspired atmosphere will feature flair bartending, live music and festive signature dishes in an expansive 14,000 sq. ft venue on the strip.
“Rock & Rita’s will take Circus Circus’ visitors to a new level of interactive partying,” David Z. Tuttleman said who, along with partner Mark Green, comprise the duo of Las Vegas restaurateurs behind the vision. “It’s a never ending, high-energy gathering in an environment designed to unleash your inner party animal.”
At Rock & Rita’s, flair bartending will be the featured attraction as drinks and bottles are tossed, juggled, spun, balanced and poured by some of the best professionals in the world. Synonymous with over-the-top showmanship, flair bartending is credited to be created by the legendary Jerry "The Professor" Thomas, who poured flaming scotch from a mug while mixing a Blue Blazer cocktail. Rock & Rita’s will feature flair competition winners from around the world at bartending stations equipped with stage controls for both impromptu and scheduled shows.
“The bartenders will take the party to the next level,” Tuttleman said. "We are committed to giving every guest a larger-than-life experience through world-ranked champion bartenders who we are actively recruiting.
Chef Alfonso Contrisciani, who shares his elite Master Chef status less than 100 other chefs in the country, brings his unique food presentations to Rock & Rita’s menu, seperating itself from other Vegas bars. They include appetizers served atop flowing fog and enourmous portions of America’s favorite party foods. The menu will also feature American classics such as burgers, country-style meatloaf and BBQ pork ribs served alongside more creative dishes including Piña Colada Chicken and Pretzel & Pecan Crusted Catfish.
This party bar's mood is for drinking, dining and live-band karaoke is set by All American décor from award-winning designer Mark Tracy of Chemical Spaces. Named 2008 HEIDI AWARDS Best Designer, Tracy creates a fun, interactive atmosphere by integrating patriotic touches with technology. From the monster truck-inspired bar and custom beer-pong tables to astounding visuals, every detail will ooze a party bar vibe.
