So, Hakkasan's Not Going To Have Any Windows?
3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map]
We're not really sure why, but we kinda assumed that Hakkasan, the five floor restaurant-sash-nightclub being built behind the MGM Grand lion, would have windows. Especially, after they ripped out the entire facade. But, now, yellow drywall has slowly replaced just about every open space on each floor, except where construction elevators are still at work. The photo above taken from the venue's live construction cam just last night.
Sure, the view would have been of Excalibur and maybe some of Tropicana and New York-New York, but we would have taken that rather than being enclosed in a space where we could easily lose track of time and... oh, wait, we see what they're doing there. Hakkasan. Where you go in, but where you don't know when to go out. Or, where. We're guessing. We hope they'll sell maps as well as tees. We get turned around easily.
Hakkasan is still sticking with a "early 2013" opening date, but back in September, we discovered that probably means April 2013. The nightlife/restaurant chain is already hiring for executive positions, most involving the word manager or host. More general hiring fairs will be held next month on January 14-17 and January 23-25. If you're looking for work, keep an eye on hakkasanlv.com for more details.
