If you haven't seen it yet, here's what this section of downtown will look like when renovations are complete:
The Las Vegas Business Press states that Fifth Street Gaming will pump more than $100 mil into Downtown Grand to give it new rooms, shops, dining as well as a pool and spa.
Fifth Street Gaming's Seth Schorr created a YouTube video recently to tell folks about The Commissary at Downtown Grand, a 'high end food market' which will offer Vegas'
second third I Heart Burger and second Daily Kitchen locations as well as a dumpling concept:
We've already told you about plans to bring a Rachel's Kitchen to downtown Vegas, now here's a better idea of where you'll find it. Here it is on the bottom floor of The Ogden high rise, located on Las Vegas Boulevard just north of Fremont.
Look for it to open in late January.
Back on Fremont Street, sammasseur reports that Flightlinez was up and running again this weekend, after having to move a bit to make way for Slotzilla. Here's an image of the new setup in front of Walgreens:
If you've been meaning to check out the world's largest collection of sneaks at ShoeZeum inside Neonopolis, you procrastinated too long.
Another suddenly vacant space can be found in the Plaza's showroom. The Las Vegas Weekly says most of the hotel's productions have been "halted through at least January 15." That includes "Bite,” “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” and “Grand Ole Vegas Revue.” Management problems and a split with Anthony Cools, who provided oversight for the venue, are being blamed. Expect Cools' salon, filled with lingerie clad stylists, to cut ties with the Plaza next year, according to the report. His casino bar shuttered at Plaza last month.
We'll end things on a happier note. There's another new bar on Fremont Street. This one can be found both inside and outside of the Four Queens. Just over a week old, the bar is on the corner of the hotel closest to the D. See a photo below and find more on the casino's Facebook page.
