Just a month after the new MGM Grand at Foxwoods celebrated a Las Vegas-style opening that drew celebs from Alicia Keys to Kim Kardashian, local nightlife magnates Ed and Joe Kane, who own the Marina Bay Beach Club and Estate in the Alley, hosted an opening party of their own Thursday night for their contribution to the MGM complex, the Asian-themed Shrine.

 

Their VIP host, "Dancing With the Stars" beauty Karina Smirnoff, was in good spirits despite recently confirming her split with former dance partner Mario Lopez.

 

She spent most of the night greeting fans and hanging near Shrine partner DJ Riz.

 

DJ Billy CostaAlso at the bash were chefs Ming Tsai and Michael Schlow, Herb Chambers with his VP Jim Xaros, McCourt Construction boss Rich McCourt, Kowloon owner Stanley Wong, Rain nightclub owner Anthony Decotis, Kane brothers cohort Randy Greenstein, bread guy Joe Piantedosi, and KISS 108's Chris Tyler and DJ Billy Costa.

 

The party continues tonight at Shrine with an appearance by "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, who was linked to Smirnoff's "Dancing" pal Julianne Hough last year.

Hub players back MGM club

Despite Gov. Deval Patrick's plan to open three resort casinos in Massachusetts, a group of Hub business leaders is making a big bet on the success of the MGM Grand at Foxwoods.

Local nightclub impresarios Ed and Joe Kane have partnered with a who's who of the Hub's most successful business people and inked a deal to open an Asian-themed restaurant and nightclub at the Connecticut casino's $700-million MGM Grand project.

Tom Werner Shrine Foxwoods MGM GRAND

The Kanes' partners include Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner, car czar Herb Chambers, Kowloon's Bobby Wong, Granite City Electric's Phyllis Godwin and KISS 108 DJ Matt Siegel.

The Kanes have high hopes for the $10 million, 20,000-square-foot venue named Shrine.

"It's great to see a lot of people in the Boston community have embraced the nightclub," said Foxwoods spokesman Saverio Mancini. "It's an opportunity to give Bostonians a taste of home at the MGM Grand."

Major League Baseball, which has rules prohibiting team owners from also owning casinos, signed off on Werner's investment because there will be no slot machines or other gambling at Shrine.

Chambers said he's happy to be partnering with Ed Kane.

"He has high integrity, knows his stuff and is at the top of his game" when it comes to the entertainment business, Chambers said.

"It's an unbelievable opportunity for us," said Ed Kane, who operates restaurants and nightclubs in the Boston area, including The Estate in the Hub, Waterworks in Quincy and Tosca in Hingham. "We've assembled a great team. . . . We're trying to reinvent the nightclub scene on the East Coast."

The two-level Shrine complex will feature a 225-seat restaurant upstairs called the Kitchen at Shrine. The menu, designed by Tosca executive chef Kevin Long, will have primarily Chinese fare, but will include sushi as well as dishes with Thai, Cambodian and Korean influences.

The restaurant will have an open kitchen, a bar, a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the pool.

The downstairs nightclub and lounge will extend from the casino floor to a patio by the pool area.

"We are the energy for the casino," said Ed Kane, adding that Shrine will be the only nightclub at MGM Grand at Foxwoods.

Mancini agreed.

"They're bringing a little bit of Boston to Foxwoods and southeastern Connecticut," he said.

Or maybe a little more than that.

"We're bringing a little Las Vegas to the woods of Connecticut," said Randy Greenstein, a principal of Shrine.

Shrine will be one of four restaurants at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods. Michael Schlow's Alta Strada, Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak and a Junior's Cheesecake will round out the offerings at the 825-room hotel and casino.

Ed Kane said Shrine will try to "piggyback" on a 4,200-seat theater being built at the MGM Grand. He hopes performers will come to the club afterward and bring the crowds with them.

Kane and Greenstein said they aren't particularly worried about competition from Massachusetts resort casinos.


Rise and ‘Shrine’ for MGM Grand at Foxwoods

By Dana Barbuto

Thu Apr 03, 2008, 09:14 AM EDT

LEDYARD, CONN. - Local nightclub owner Ed Kane is trading in the surf and sand for sushi and Geisha girls. And, he’s hoping lady luck is on his side. Kane’s latest endeavor is a 20,000-square-foot Asian-inspired nightclub, lounge and dining venue called Shrine and it opens May 17 at the new $700 million MGM Grand at Foxwoods.

Kane runs Big Night Entertainment and owns The Estate in Boston, as well as Hingham restaurants Tosca, Cafe Tosca and Stars. His club WaterWorks in Marina Bay opens May 29 recast as the Marina Bay Beach Club.

With a vibe that is hip and cool, Shrine is like a Tao at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.

“Shrine is only a nightclub two nights a week,” Kane said. “The rest of the time it’s a restaurant and lounge. During those two nights we may have dancers and other Los Angeles-Las Vegas-style talent, like DJs and maybe a Geisha girl parade.”

The opening weeks at Shrine will see a star-studded lineup with celebrity hosts Brody Jenner, Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra and DJs AM and Scribble spinning songs, Kane said.

Shrine will accommodate 1,200 patrons on its two floors, which include an outdoor terrace overlooking the pool.

Calling the food “sexy,” Kane said he picked an Asian theme because “it’s the best way to marry a great restaurant and nightclub. Asian food lets you do that. It relates well to group dining.”

Though he said he’s not an Asian chef, Kevin Long, the executive chef at Tosca in Hingham, is the man behind the menu at Shrine.

“It’s just a matter of digging deeper,” said Long, who’s been at Tosca 13 years. “I’ve always been a fan of Asian food. Asian cuisine is some of my favorite things to eat.”

Long said he’ll take the same approach at Shrine as he does at Tosca – using fresh, local ingredients to do creative foods influenced by different regions. Some dishes will be miso soup and rangoon, both with lobster.

“I’ve got this great lobster purveyor in Hingham and I will have the lobsters shipped in twice a week,” Long said.

Having a meal at Shrine, Long said, will be an experience.

“You go to the casino to have a great time and Shrine is going to be an unbelievable tool in that experience.”

Kane said the 225-seat restaurant is on a mezzanine level that sits on top of the nightclub.

“It’s very high-end with comfortable spaces. In the nightclub alone there’s 300 seats to eat or to sit and hang out with friends,” Kane said. “There are lots of retreats. Even going to the bathroom is a Zen-like experience.”

Like a Vegas club, Shrine will have a bottle service. Expect to pay $300 to $500 for a bottle of liquor like Grey Goose or Patron. The most expensive is Rémy Martin Louis XIII Cognac at $4,000 a pop. A personally engraved bottle of Johnny Walker Blue runs $1,000.

Auto czar Herb Chambers, Granite City Electric CEO and Quincy resident Phyllis Godwin and Red Sox owner Tom Werner are among investors. For more information, visit www.shrinemgmfoxwoods.com.


Big Night Entertainment

Big Ideas

Big Night Entertainment was founded in 2006 by veteran nightclub owners/managers, brothers Ed and Joe Kane (Marina Bay Beach Club), along with media marketing and promotions expert, Randy Greenstein.

In 2007, the partners brought Christie Leigh Bellany on board as Managing Partner of new venture, Big Night Promotions, which offers exclusive promotional models and services to our clients.

The groups latest venture, Big Night Venues, brings in Kevin Long as Executive Chef for their innovative new nightclub, Shrine, which opens at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in May of 2008.

Proven leaders in their respective fields, the Big Night team’s goal was to create a new company that would up the ante offering unparalleled level of service, dedication and expertise.


Opening in May of 2008 at the new MGM Grand at Foxwoods, Shrine is a 20,000-square-foot nightclub, lounge and stylized dining venue, offering a Las Vegas-style nightlife experience within a classic Asian-designed interior.

Located directly off the casino floor, with 85 feet of casino frontage, and adjacent to the Performing Arts Theater and main ballroom, Shrine will accommodate up to 1,200 patrons within a two-story venue.  A 3,000-square-foot, two-story outdoor terrace overlooking MGM Grand’s luxurious, fan-shaped pool will provide patrons with alternative space for dining, mingling and dancing. 

Shrine will also feature two private dining rooms, accommodating from 20 to 40 people, a 12-person kitchen and sushi counter and a 225-seat dining room.  With more than 20 VIP bottle service tables, a state-of-the art Funktion One sound and DJ booth, stage and multiple bars, Shrine will be an invigorating and trendy hotspot and restaurant.

Owned by Big Night Entertainment, the company behind some of Boston’s hottest nightlife venues, the 20,000-square-foot nightclub, lounge and stylized dining venue, will offer a Las Vegas-style nightlife experience within a classic Asian-designed interior.

With four menus -- lunch, dinner, bar/lounge and late night dining -- guests of MGM Grand at Foxwoods will find inspiring fare awaiting them at Shrine nearly every hour of the day. Individual small plates of mouthwatering favorites such as Ahi Tuna Tartar, Rock Shrimp Tempura and House Fried Calamari will be served as well as large plates designed for group sharing, including Chinese Barbeque Pork Rack, American Wagyu Beef Rib-Eye Steak and Roasted Chilean Sea Bass. There will also be a focus on creative sushi and sashimi offerings.

“Our goal of creating a fantastic space where guests can indulge in dining, hip music and intimate conversation will come alive when Shrine debuts at Connecticut’s newest and most sophisticated resort casino this spring,” said Ed Kane, founder, Big Night Entertainment. “We feel there is amazing symmetry with our brand and MGM Grand at Foxwoods and look forward to opening Shrine’s doors to the property’s upscale clientele.”

A mix of high-profile, Boston- and New York-based investors will contribute greatly to the success of Shrine at MGM Grand at Foxwoods. These include: Tom Werner (owner/chairman, Boston Red Sox); Matt Siegel (host, KISS 108); Herb Chambers (owner, Herb Chambers Automotive); DJ Riz (DJ, Crooklyn Clan); Bobby Wong (owner, Kowloon and president, Mass Restaurant Association), Anthony DeCotis (owner, Rain and Town Line Ten Pin), Phyllis Godwin (owner and CEO, Granite City Electric) and Aaron Sells (principal, Trinity One Marketing).
