With Krave's Departure Comes Equalibrium

Where: 3765 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
July 29, 2014 at 6:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

Krave may be gone (again) but that, apparently, doesn't mean Vegas will have one less LGBT nightclub. Or, that the Tommy Wind Theater will... which Krave just vacated.

In a twist that should probably require an accompanying flowchart, Krave has been replaced by Equalibrium. The also gay friendly nightspot will make its debut this Friday, August 1 in the exact same space Krave called home up until this past weekend (for its most recent incarnation, anyway). That, however, is where the similarities end as Equalibrium is quick to note on its Facebook page.

Zinger's Shutters At Hawaiian Marketplace

Where: 3743 Las Vegas Blvd S [map], 89109

The best worst dive bar on The Strip is no more.

Zinger's, known for its karaoke and definitely not for its food, has closed at Hawaiian Marketplace. That's the strip mall across from Aria. You know, where they're building that Chili's? In fact, we hear the chain's two-story takeover of a large section of Hawaiian Marketplace is to blame for the shutter of Zinger's.

At the Four Queens, That’s Life is dead. And, just like that, the title for worst show in Vegas is back up for grabs. Shall we notify Luxor?

Krave Is Closing... Again

Where: 3765 Las Vegas Blvd. S [map], 89109
July 24, 2014 at 3:54 PM | by | Comment (1)

Krave has announced its closure while simultaneously clinging to the tagline of being America's #1 LGBT nightclub.

The nightspot, which seems to have had its greatest days when it was located on the Harmon side of Miracle Mile, will close at its current location as of this Sunday, July 27. After a disastrous downtown move, Krave popped up on The Strip at the Tommy Wind Theater (formerly the Empire Ballroom) last November and even invested in an remodel that brought new furniture, lighting, and a new sound system to the space.

Mamma Mia! Trop's Curse Continues

Where: 3801 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

It's another grand opening, grand closing for Tropicana.

After debuting May 8, Trop's version of the Broadway hit, Mamma Mia!, has turned into a big miss. It's been announced the show will close August 3. We once had high hopes that the production would finally turn things around for the WTF-plagued property, but that changed after we actually saw it and felt the vocals (kind of a major thing here) did not stand out.

Entertainment Roundup: Still The One, But Not For Long To Georgia On Our Mind

July 21, 2014 at 8:09 PM | by | Comments (3)

The Vegas PR machine was in high gear today cranking out entertainment news from up and down The Strip. From the coming end of Twain's resident twang to another new show for the Riv, here's a roundup of what's closing and what's just ahead:

Shania Twain will stop stealing the limelight from Celine Dion by year's end. (Twain was recently named best resident performer by a Vegas publication so you know sh*t was getting serious.) Her two-year residency at Caesars Palace will officially mark its last night December 13. Tickets for the final 16 shows -- ten dates in October and six in December -- are on sale now. She's also here for a short run beginning tomorrow. Catch Shania July 22-23 and 25-26 if you can't wait that long to see her feel like a woman. Tickets begin at $55.

If You've Never Heard Of Bunkhouse, Here's Why It Should Be On Your Vegas Radar

Where: 124 S. 11th Street [map], 89101
July 21, 2014 at 3:54 PM | by | Comments (5)

In 2009, we hailed it as our favorite place for a dependable ruckus. The Downtown Project’s re-imagination of Downtown Vegas continues with the reopening of Bunkhouse Saloon.

Purchased and closed by Tony Hsieh and company in 2013, the music venue will open again August 25 with a performance from Indie Rock stalwarts, Built To Spill. Heavy remodeling is lengthening the building to allow for a new kitchen serving sloppy joes, deviled eggs and other bar food. Guests will also find a new entrance from Fremont Street and a brand new sound system.

Downtown Changes You Might Not Know About

July 18, 2014 at 4:07 PM | by | Comments (6)

There's more happening in Downtown Vegas than fast-changing drinking laws. (Although, if you haven't heard yet, there's another you should be aware of.) Here's a roundup of what's taking place, from remodels to new spots to sip and sup:

Mermaid's is getting a substantial refresh. Its snack bar is up and running again after a week-long renovation according to our @sammasseur who also spied new casino carpeting, new slot chairs and even new slot machines themselves. Sam was told the casino bar along with the cashier cage are next in line for an update. The biggest news is that the casino will covert its slot machines from coin to TITO (Ticket In, Ticket Out) in about two months time.

Where one bar closes, another debuts at downtown's Container Park.

The Boozery is gone and in its place is Oak & Ivy, self-described as an "American craft whiskey cocktail bar dedicated to classic mixology and unique handcrafted drinks." We'll just go with whiskey bar. Here's what you'll be able to order up:

Vegas Nocturne Ends At Cosmo, But Is This Really It?

July 14, 2014 at 8:01 PM | by | Comments (12)

Adieu, sexy bathtub guy.

This is Vegas. Things open and close. And, oftentimes, both are greeted with the same level of enthusiasm. This closure, however, may go in the VegasChatter annals as the shittiest.

Saturday, Vegas Nocturne -- the entertainment portion of Rose.Rabbit.Lie.'s "grand social experiment" -- marked its final performance. Rumors of its closure were already in the wind so it wasn't a surprise. It was, however, a disappointment of horror scream proportions, especially to those who had experienced it and recognized it among the best of Las Vegas.

Hard Times For Downtown Grand

Where: 206 North 3rd Street [map], 89101
July 7, 2014 at 7:54 PM | by | Comments (23)

We were so taken with the promise of Downtown Grand, we named it the best opening of 2013. Fast forward seven months and it's a contender for most WTF of 2014.

We loved the design as well as the idea of it all when it came to the Vegas return of a renovated and renamed Lady Luck which made its debut October 2013. Gamblers, however, were almost instantly turned off by tight machines and pay tables that went from poor to bad. Fans of the old Mob Bar hated the new incarnation. Diners were less than impressed with the fare presented by the handful of available choices. It was hard to even find a cup of coffee. Eventual dining revamps were too little, too late for many. Pool season brought enough confusion when it came to who could and couldn't lay out on the rooftop deck, when and for how much (if anything), that we threw in the towel when it came to trying to keep things straight.
