Area 15 Las Vegas
AREA15 is the world’s first purpose-built experiential art and entertainment complex. This long-awaited venue and the experiences it houses tops every must-see list in Las Vegas.
What exactly IS AREA15?
Located in the heart of Las Vegas and minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, AREA15 offers immersive activations, monumental art installations, socially-distanced events, extraordinary design elements, unique retail, ground-breaking technology, bars, eateries, and much more. The complex also houses 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space with more than 800 free parking spaces.
Think of AREA15 as a mall of experiences. You get in for free and there are “shops” inside but instead of purchasing clothes or electronics you can purchase tickets to a variety of experiences, also called activations. These experiences include everything from VR to gliding over the top of the venue to delicious eats to fully immersive art installations where you can get lost for hours.
