B.B. King Blues Club is set to open a Vegas outpost at The Mirage in November. Similar to the House of Blues, the menu features a collection of Southern comfort food, with a Creole touch, with items like BBQ ribs, Gumbo Ya Ya, Southern-fried catfish, etc.

Every evening will also feature live music from blues artists, both local and internationally known. King himself may occasionally grace the stage.

The restaurant/music venue will be located across from The Beatles REVOLUTION Lounge and next to Samba Brazilian Steakhouse. The eatery portion will serve from breakfast to late-night, and the music club portion will run until 2am on weekdays and 4am on weekends.
