MGM Resorts’ multimillion-dollar sports entertainment venue now open

Beau Rivage, MGM Resort International’s AAA Four Diamond resort in Coastal Mississippi, announces the opening of TAP Book, Bar & Bistreaux, the Southeast’s premier sports betting, entertainment and dining destination.

“Since Beau Rivage launched legalized sports betting in Mississippi last August, we have ushered in a new era for sports entertainment and driven more and new visitors to the region,” said Beau Rivage President & COO Travis Lunn. “MGM Resorts is the trusted leader in sport betting and Beau Rivage’s new multimillion-dollar state-of-the-art TAP Book, Bar and Bistreaux raises the stakes yet again by offering a southern twist on the respected TAP brand for a new high-energy sports entertainment experience like no other.”

Set among sturdy brick and ironwork, exposed beams and welcoming earth tones, TAP celebrates modern technology with more than 100 HD screens including a massive 24-foot wide by 14-foot tall video wall. Its 70 screens can operate individually, in various combinations or as one huge display, and are flanked by two additional video walls for an immersive high-impact audio and visual experience throughout the 7,000-square-foot space. Fourteen carrels with individual HD touch-enabled monitors allow guests to watch sports with interactive controls.

Inspired by its coastal location, TAP’s nautically-influenced interior features the comfort, detail and craftsmanship of a luxury yacht. Walnut tabletops, beautiful quartz bar tops, rustic end grain cut wood flooring, textured wallcoverings and wood and stitched leather panels offer a clean and tailored warmth to the space. Sports fans can relax on plush sofas and lounge chairs, take a seat at two different bars, three video poker counters, or sit and dine to watch their favorite sporting event. Two VIP lounges offer even more exclusive experiences. TAP’s main center bar has video poker machines and comfortable flex back seating. For convenience, guests will find free Wi-Fi and power charging at the bars, cocktail tables and arm chairs within the smoke-free venue.

True to its name, each of TAP’s bar areas serve up 15 beers on tap, including seasonal and regional favorites. More than 30 handcrafted craft bottled beer selections can also be found along with contemporary cocktails and wines by the glass and bottle. TAP’s refreshing line of signature adult milkshakes – including the Strawberry Short Shake, Mexican Shake, Mudslide Shake and Bourbon Shake - offer guests deliciously cool indulgences.

TAP’s collection of elevated comfort food and American sports bar classics feature signature dishes such as the Tap Burger; Big Wedge Salad, Queso Fundido, Bavarian Pretzel, Loaded Nachos and Short Rib Chili.
