Bruno Mars will open a bar at the Bellagio, sources say

They ain’t got nothing on you, baby.

That’s what Bruno Mars says (and sings) in Las Vegas.

The global superstar could have chosen anywhere in the world to open an eponymous bar and lounge, but he chose the Las Vegas Strip. The spot will be called Bruno Mars’ The Pinky Ring, and it’s going to the Bellagio space currently occupied by Lily Bar & Lounge, according to two food and drink industry insiders familiar with the project but not authorized to speak about it. publicly.

In the video for “24K Magic,” which takes place in Vegas, Mars wears rings on both little fingers, and the song urges players to “put your little finger on the moon” in celebration. Online store Bruno Mars is selling a currently unavailable necklace – a pink ring on a chain – whose ring appears to be a replica of the one he wore in the “24K” video.

The singer performed at a sold-out concert residency, Bruno Mars at The Chelsea, Las Vegas, from 2013 to 2015, and another sold-out residency, Bruno Mars at Park MGM, from 2016 to 2021. Silk Sonic, the neo-soul duo of Mars and Anderson .Paak, are featured in a residency at Park MGM that began last February, with dates added for August.

Neither Mars’ management company nor a Bellagio representative immediately returned a request for comment on the new bar and lounge.
