What is Area15?

Area15 (also spelled Area 15 and AREA15) isn’t just another item on a list of Las Vegas attractions. Nope! It’s a one-of-a-kind venue where the essence of immersive playgrounds, unique gift ideas, and unforgettable dining experiences converge, just one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip.

An immersive entertainment district that redefines what an urban experience can be. This place, often called an urban Burning Man mall, seamlessly combines retro vibes with futuristic visions.

You have the luxury of exploring this district for free, stepping into an array of worlds where the only limit is your imagination. And when you’re ready for a deeper dive, ticketed experiences unlock realms beyond the ordinary!

Area15 is a unique project initiated by Fisher Brothers and Beneville Studios to introduce a fresh and innovative concept in Las Vegas to compete with the famous Strip. The project idea became an entertainment and retail complex with a science-fiction theme chosen after carefully considering various creative options.

The finished project is an immersive entertainment and dining destination that opened in Vegas in early 2021. Area15 combines restaurants, bars, and nightlife into one colossal warehouse with an outside campus.

Inside Area15, you’ll find art installations, an indoor golf experience, a zipline, dueling axes, featured attraction Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, and so much more!
