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.

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.

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.

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.

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:
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.

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.

A lot of sh*t comes and goes in Las Vegas and some of it actually sticks. Since the flow of updates can come fast and furious, each month we'll point out Sh*t You May Have Missed as an easy way to keep score of what's new, who's coming soon, which doors may have closed and what you better catch now before it's gone forever.

On the center Strip, Aria is preparing to close both a bar and a restaurant. To come? Another restaurant and -- maybe -- another bar.
City Bar, the drinking spot you walk by to get to the casino, a restaurant, Zarkana, or your hotel room, will close this Sunday, June 22. We're told a new concept will be announced in the coming weeks. Rumor has it a new lounge is on the way. We couldn't confirm that, but we'll pretend to be surprised when we see the announcement.

Earlier this year, we wondered if the Purple Reign was coming to an end at Planet Hollywood. A few weeks later, we also reported on the likelihood Jeff Dunham would become PHamous this November as part of a Las Vegas residency. We can now confirm both.

Operated by Cantor since 2012 and offering just a handful of tables, CardPlayer says "the news probably isn't too surprising." It reports that the Palms would not comment on the shutter.
