Mandalay Bay’s popular new venue to host a monthly 80s-themed prom night featuring curated dinner, refreshing drinks, live band, dance floor and photo opps
Retro by Voltaggio, the new Las Vegas restaurant from television stars, judges and celebrity chef icons Michael and Bryan Voltaggio, is rolling out the red carpet to host the raddest summer prom series at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Starting July 28 and continuing the last Friday of every month through September, the event will feature a dance floor with a live 80s cover band, Jungle Juice punch bowl, themed photo opportunities, a prom king and queen coronation, and a prix fixe dinner from the brothers’ electrifying new menu.
Guests are encouraged to live their prom night fantasies by arriving in their finest 80s attire, as the night will begin with a quintessential prom picture, elevated by an optional boutonniere and corsage.
Attendees will then be escorted to the bar where they will receive a glass of “spiked” punch to enjoy while they decide who to nominate for the night’s prom king and queen.
A seated dinner will feature a shared menu of Retro’s nostalgic dishes followed by a dessert buffet complete with a decadent chocolate fountain.
Guests will then flock to the dance floor where the cover band will play the best of the 80s before announcing the winners for prom king and queen.
