What is this place?
America’s Backyard is the biggest and best all-American backyard party ever! Whether you’re in the mood for grillin’ or chillin’, dancin’ or drinkin’ we’re ready for you with our never-ending…ever-changing party!
Just like any great backyard the centerpiece is our pool, except our Pool Bar is filled with bartenders instead of water! Our backyard party’s got a smokin’ kitchen and we’re cooking a menu of all-American favorites to satisfy your appetite. Before the party we shopped for the best hand-crafted beers from across the country at the Tool Shed Bar. The Smoker Grill perched up there is home to the greatest dance and party DJ’s, so get ready to dance and play in our backyard. Upstairs enjoy our beautiful Tequila Bar overlooking the party in the backyard and as an added bonus you’ll be just a couple of steps closer to the stars. Before you step inside Revolution Live to enjoy a concert or a DJ dance party, look down onto the action on the street below.
