Now Open: MGM Springfield




MGM Springfield, MGM’s new resort in New England with an 8,000-seat arena and and 34,000 square feet of meeting space, is now open. 

The opening follows two days of festivities at the resort. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Domenic Sarno, Congressman Richard Neal and Gaming Commission Chairman Stephen Crosby joined MGM Resorts Chairman and CEO Jim Murren and MGM Springfield President Mike Mathis Friday to commemorate the occasion. Actor Mark Wahlberg also announced that he will be bringing his family’s Wahlburger’s to the resort. It will be located on the corner of Main and Union Streets on the southeast corner of the MGM Springfield campus, and is expected to open in late 2019.   

The MGM Springfield has 250 guestrooms, including 16 suites. Design details—including factory-style paned glass and Edison bulb fixtures—harken to Springfield's industrial roots, while eclectic artwork aims to evoke the locale's creative iconography, visually referencing Emily Dickinson and Dr. Seuss – such as the 1,600-square-foot Presidential Suite's hat chandelier inspired by the 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins

The 8,000-seat MassMutual Center will host a lineup of live entertainment beginning with Stevie Wonder on September 1. The property also plays host to social elements like the region's first public Topgolf Swing Suite, Regal Cinemas, and TAP Sports Bar complete with a 10-lane bowling alley and arcade. The Plaza serves as an outdoor gathering space hosting interactive events designed to foster community engagement, such as Beer Yoga, a pop-up art gallery by Springfield muralist John Simpson, seasonal activations and more.  

With approximately 34,000 square feet of versatile space, MGM Springfield's meeting and event center has ballrooms, meeting rooms and boardrooms adjacent to a 6,200-square-foot outdoor terrace that floods pre-function areas with natural light. For indoor-outdoor space with a historical twist, guests can host events in the resort's castle-like Armory, which was built in 1895 and restored to its current state by the MGM Resorts' design team.

Restaurants include Italian coastal concept Cal Mare by James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina and Chef Adam Sobel; fine steaks and seafood at The Chandler Steakhouse with Hell's Kitchen season 14 winner Meghan Gill serving as executive chef; MGM's signature TAP Sports Bar; and South End Market, a modern food hall with six eateries. In terms of bars, the Lobby Bar, Knox Bar and Commonwealth serve a drinks menu spotlighting local ingredients and freshly pressed juices. 

The resort also has a full-service spa with seven treatment rooms, couples' suites and a warm design inspired by New England's signature maritime style. A separate salon for men and women hosts an in-house barbershop. There is also an 8,000-square-foot pool.
