The Harley-Davidson Dealership, Store Coming Soon To The Strip Is Still Coming Soon

Where: 5191 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 15, 2014 at 2:52 PM | by | Comments (2)

Soon, there will be a Harley-Davidson dealership as well as a Harley-Davidson Cafe on The Strip.

After a January groundbreaking, work continues to progress on a 50,000-square-foot space located just yards from the Welcome to Las Vegas sign. Set for a fall opening (a more specific timeline is not yet ready to be announced although October has been bandied about), visitors will be able to purchase and rent hogs on site. There will be a retail store for souvenirs, too, meaning government planners should probably think about creating a pedestrian walkway from the sign over to the east side of Las Vegas Boulevard if they haven't already.

A Tentative Timeline For A New North Strip

August 11, 2014 at 8:09 PM | by | Comments (8)

The North Strip finally seems to be headed for the revival long imagined, but never realized. SLS Las Vegas, a re-imagined, renovated and renamed Sahara, will open its doors at midnight on August 23 following a $415 million transformation. But, what about the other elements now in play?

Across the Strip from SLS, MGM Resorts' $20 million City of Rock will debut with the US arrival of Rock in Rio in May 2015. The plan is for the outdoor festival grounds to host up to 12 (possibly 16) events a year, however, a representative has stated no other events are on the books right now beyond the mega-concert event.

A New Resort Planned For The Old Frontier Site

August 5, 2014 at 12:34 AM | by | Comments (10)

The north Strip could be a whole new world come 2018. That's when the new owner of the old Frontier site expects to debut a new resort on the acreage.

On Sunday, headlines broke that billionaire James Packer had acquired controlling interest of the long dormant plot. The Frontier came down in a flash in November 2007, but plans to build a Plaza on the site -- what would have been a sister venue to the New York Plaza and not the Downtown Vegas one -- stalled.

Hold The Phone: Could This Be The End For Bally's Pylon?

July 30, 2014 at 7:59 PM | by | Comments (20)

A view of Bally's from May 2010.

While renderings of the still forthcoming Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's show an untouched pylon could that be changing?

A VegasChatter tipster tells us a T-Mobile flagship store has been signed for the corner across from The Cromwell. It will join some 150+ brands at the outdoor mall that will mostly feature retailers of the tiny kiosk variety but with a few larger shops and a handful of eateries sprinkled in, too.

While what's happening to its south is taking much of the limelight, Harrah's is bringing the new, too.

In December, we told you how the aging resort was betting big on a casino floor revamp. One month later, we filled you in on plans for a new fast-casual dining experience that would replace Ming's Table and The Cafe at Harrah's.

Strip's Harley-Davidson Cafe Expanding Patio

Where: 3725 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Everywhere you look on The Strip, the focus is on The Strip. From new walk-up eateries at Monte Carlo to the coming open-air Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally's, it's no longer about stepping out. It's about maybe never stepping into the resort proper, at all. And, it's not just the mega-resorts with a new game afoot.

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.

Checking Back In On The Demolition Of The Harmon

July 28, 2014 at 2:50 PM | by | Comments (11)

The Harmon as viewed on July 21.

Usually in Vegas, history drops away as fast as a few charges of TNT will allow. With the demolition of The Harmon, the center Strip condo-hotel that never opened due to construction defects, it will be a process covering many months. MGM Resorts execs have stated its erasure will take a year to complete.

Yes, That Is A Chili's They're Building Across From Aria

Yep, that's right. Chili's baby back ribs (you're welcome for the jingle you can't get out of your head now) are headed to The Strip. Specifically, the Hawaiian Marketplace across from Aria.

We first told you the news back in November. The chain restaurant, currently taking over more than 8,600 square feet at the strip mall, will boast an outdoor balcony when complete. Our @sammasseur captured new images of the construction over the weekend.

Delano Las Vegas (Debuting September 1)

Don't call it THEhotel, anymore. It's almost Delano now -- just check out the sign below! -- so we might as well get used to it.

Checking Back In On Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops

June 27, 2014 at 9:10 PM | by | Comments (19)

Each day, we get a better sense of what Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops will really look like and it's, in a word, meh.

Is it wrong for us to wish for the return of that (more than a little) spot of Vegas serenity, non-moving sidewalk and all? Instead, this.
