Checking In On The Linq and The Quad Six Weeks Later

April 4, 2013 at 4:55 PM | by | Comments (7)

The Linq, Quad and High Roller we showed you six weeks ago is, today, different yet the same. Exterior facades are slowly evolving while a spate of interior projects are now online and ready to explore.

We've bestowed VegasChatter fan @John_Nissan on Twitter the position of Executive Director of our Department of Visual Inspection when it comes to this stretch of the Strip. After an initial visit on February 19, we asked if he could return to the scene this week to capture some of the same sight lines he did previously for a side-by-side comparison. (Or, in this case one after the other.)

Here are the views from here, as they were seen back then, this week and what Caesars Entertainment execs hope to present to us upon completion. Check the photo gallery below for the changes now found inside The Quad, including a newly expanded casino; new bar, Catalyst; new spirits shop; and a new casino entry point.

More changes to The Quad, including a new home for its poker room, will come online as the year progresses. The Linq, featuring a collection of shops, restaurants, bars and more, will begin to open this December. Pulse of Vegas, the blog of Caesars Entertainment, has a rad look inside the space destined to become Brooklyn Bowl (part bowling alley, part concert venue, plus food and booze, if you're unfamiliar). Meantime, The High Roller observation wheel should debut in early 2014.

It's okay... but

HARRAH'S (aka CET) just doesn't know how to do it.  They are in my opinion the worse casino company.  Wynn, Sands, Boyd, or even MGM Mirage any day over CET.  CET properties are just not up to par!!!

Hilarious

The Hotel doesn't match the facade.  It's still the IP in the back, HA!!

Clarify

I have noticed on this site and other Vegas ones people bemoaning the fact that new Vegas seems to be all for high rollers and night clubs. While I do think that some of their properties need a little update, the fact that I can still play $5 BJ and Craps at Harrahs, Flamingo, or IP any morning makes me happy. I think this project will be interesting and I would trust CET over MGM/Mirage any day.

Decent...

while I think that the money could of been used in a different way, its still better than nothing! its another reason for me to go to vegas next year...

Not Too Crazy About What CET Is Doing...

I've decided to stay at one of the Sam Boyd properties from now on because of the resort fees and crazy construction going on. I know that some of the Sam Boyd resorts also has resort fees but it's not as bad as CET.

What is???

What is that brick structure in the middle of the old access road?  I was under the understanding (and based on the Caesars drawings of the finished Linq) that this would be open all the way back to the wheel.  Any ideas?

@FranklinT

Caesars hasn't released details yet on just what businesses will be located where in the Linq.
