LAS VEGAS (March 11, 2016) – James Beard Award-winning chef Shawn McClain challenges diners to free their minds from preconceived notions about bar restaurants and get ready to eat, drink and socialize at Mandalay Bay’s soon-to-be hotspot, Libertine Social. The next-generation gastropub will stimulate the senses with New American bar food by the renowned chef, a pioneering cocktail program by Modern Mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim and a range of compelling atmospheres to fit diners’ motivations. McClain’s only rules? Have fun and make the experience what you want it to be. Libertine Social will open in summer 2016 and will be located on the casino level, next to Charlie Palmer’s Aureole.
