Yesterday I got a little sneak peek at the new Jabbawockeez Theater at Luxor. It's being built in the old IMAX theater and it's great! It's a smaller theater but it's really nice. They reversed the set up (the back of the theater is where the movie screen used to be and the stage is where the back of the theater was) and you cannot tell it was ever used as anything else. It's has a really cool Tron vibe to it, which is an automatic plus for me. I think it's going to be a really great show and much needed for Luxor's currently weak line up of entertainment.
Anyways...here is what is or is not going on in Vegas at the moment:
Fountainbleau...still an expensive eyesore.
Venetian...still no condos!
Speed: the Ride & unfinished skywheel...still rusting
Speaking of Speed...this sign is all that remains
SLS: Opening in 2014 without a gaming license (the owner is a shady nightclub operator who had to outsource the operation of the Sahara casino before he shut it down). This hotel is brought to you by foreign investors looking for citizenship. No Joke.
One of these things is brand new. The other is a condemned building. You decide.
The "Linq" between Ghetto and slightly less Ghetto is well underway
High class food and retail for two low class hotels...brilliant!
"Lipstick on a pig" is the perfect explanation for this photo. Same crappy Imperial Palace (ghetto rooms and TERRIBLE hotel layout and all), just slightly dressed up.
On the bright side, Vegas will finally have an observation wheel. After like 12 failed attempts.
And Binions is being gutted to become the Gansveroot hotel...say that 3 times fast!
The Frontier site is still empty. And no visible start to Resorts World construction yet.
The latest douchebag magnet, err, I mean club has finally opened at MGM. If EDM is your thing, this is the place to be.
Speaking of nightclub, one will be opening right across from Lupo in a few weeks. This one is a partnership with Cirque, where each DJ will supposedly have a mini Cirque show designed for their set. Sounds slightly less douchey than a normal night club.
Mandalay Bay is also jumping on the "Day Club" bandwagon. And by that, I mean adding a DJ to a pool and charging a ton of money for admission/cabanas/patio chairs...err, "day beds".
Side note: didn't even realize this at the time, but the photo I posted of the Imperial Palace casino is actually the old O'Shea's. They completely rebuilt it. The main IP, err, Quad casino is still being remodeled.
