MGM to Open 8,000 Seat Venue in New England August 24




The MGM Springfield is set to open August 24 with an 8,000 seat entertainment venue and 42,500 additional square feet of event space for meeting planners. The new resort is set in Springfield, MA’s downtown area. 

Other notable amenities include:

Accommodations – The boutique-style five-story hotel will have 250 guestrooms inspired by the history, architecture and literary legacy of its urban surroundings. Each space will incorporate details such as quotations from the works of Emily Dickinson and Merriam-Webster-inspired works of art.

Dining Experiences – Food and beverage options will include Cal Mare by James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina; steaks and seafood at The Chandler Steak House with Hell's Kitchen season 14 winner Meghan Gill serving as executive chef; MGM's signature TAP Sports Bar; and the South End Market off Main Street.

Entertainment – The 8,000-seat MassMutual Center is MGM Springfield's official entertainment venue, serving as the home for large-scale conventions and events. MGM Resorts said it will leverage its pipeline of global relationships to attract events and entertainment. MGM Springfield also will partner with other local venues, such as Symphony Hall, for live events.

Relaxation – Guests can tee up at MGM Springfield's Topgolf Swing Suite, a new social gathering spot with immersive golf simulators and a lounge. The resort also will have an eight-screen movie theater complex; 10-lane bowling center; spa; and an 8,000-square-foot pool in a terraced rooftop garden.

Retail – The resort's retail lineup on street level will include the first-ever apparel boutique from Indian Motorcycle – the Springfield-born pioneer of the American motorcycle industry – and Kringle Candle.

Open-Air Plaza – Inspired by the classic New England town common, MGM Springfield will have an outdoor plaza and thriving public space, with the Revolutionary War-era Springfield Armory at its center. The historic United States arsenal will offer a backdrop for the open-air marketplace, which will host live events, local artisans, farmers markets and seasonal programming, including an outdoor ice rink. The plaza will aim to serve as an anchor for the neighborhood's pedestrian crowd, encouraging guests to explore the local businesses and attractions nearby.

Art – A public fine art program inspired by the industrial ethos of Springfield will host a collection of commissioned and curated pieces by international and local artists from Springfield, the greater Berkshires, New England and beyond. The property also will have an exclusive exhibit, "Cabinet of Curiosities: Springfield Innovations from the Springfield Museums," curated in partnership with the Springfield Museums to showcase turn-of-the-century objects throughout the resort, such as a 1925 Edison Western Union Stock Ticker, a 1915 Springfield-made Telegraphone and an 1895 Edison Home Phonograph.

Casino – A 125,000-square-foot gaming floor will have approximately 2,550 slot machines, 120 gaming tables, a poker room and high-limit VIP gaming area for a variety of experiences.
