MGM Springfield announces nightlife venues, unique drinks

Of the bars on the property, one is “The Knox Bar” named after Henry Knox who built the Springfield Armory.

If you’re wondering how much the most expensive drink at MGM will cost you, it’s a whopping $25,000. However, it may actually be a good deal considering you get an Indian Motorcycle and of bottle of 1901 Cognac. 1901 because that was the Indian Motorcycle’s founding year.
