Mama Rabbit is inspired by the legend of Mayahuel, the Aztec goddess of Agave and the plant from which tequila and mezcal is made. Blending the dynamic atmosphere of a Mexican Taverna with the intimacy and allure of a speakeasy, Mama Rabbit is a definitive Mezcal and Tequila destination. Oaxacan culture is thoughtfully incorporated into the design of the venue includingbold and vibrant colors, Mexican tile, and authentic Mexican crafted wood works.  Contrasting the authentic Mexican materials i sthe integration of a contemporary glass and metal feature wall that bisects the island bar.  The feature wall displays a unique and varied collection of tequila and mezcal bottles.  Mama Rabbit will feature Las Vegas’ largest collection of tequila and mezcal, highlighting a wide range of Mexican flavors.

The 4,400 sf venue at Park MGM includes 3 distinct environments that offer varying experiences. The Taverna Bar provides lively bar seating with visibility to and from the adjacent casino floor.  The La Sala Lounge includes luxurious private seating behind an arched brick wall for an intimate atmosphere.  The Taverna Lounge is the main gathering space with varied seating configurations, gaming tables and a stage area for live music that energizes the space.  Mama Rabbit commissioned art installations from Spanish artist Okuda San Miguel including a dramatic wall mural and animal sculptures housing slot machines.  Visually rich textures, colors and patterns synonymous with Mexican modernism and lively music captures the state of Oaxaca’s energy while a bold and bright art program pays homage to the region’s famous art scene.
