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 (9)

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.

Can't wait for future Vegas to arrive? Sate your thirst for Vegas new-ness with ten shots of construction porn. All were snapped today as we travelled from Luxor to Sahara. Erm, SLS!

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. Officially making its Vegas debut September 1, some folks are already enjoying the new rooms. A rep tells us about 40 percent of the tower's accommodations have been remodeled so far. For more on what to expect from Delano, click here.

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.

The Harmon Hotel's Glass Facade Being Stripped Away

June 19, 2014 at 6:34 PM | by | Comments (5)

While one Vegas hotel project proudly touts that it's on the fast track to completion another continues to quietly work towards its deconstruction.

As we first told you last week, demolition has finally begun of the failed Harmon Hotel, once destined to be a condo/hotel operated by The Light Group within CityCenter and now the site of disbelief as it slowly fades away into Vegas obscurity.

Wondering What's Going On At Pioneer Club And The D?

June 12, 2014 at 4:14 PM | by | Comments (2)

Recently, VegasChatter readers have been curious about what's going on at two construction projects around Downtown Vegas. Since our friends at Vital Vegas practically live on Fremont Street, we turned to them for the lowdown.

VegasChatter fan KLASphotogNICK sent us an email filled with pictures of construction underway at the D yesterday. A PR rep tells us they're modifying the area around the hotel-casino's valet off Carson and Fourth in conjunction with the debut of DTLVEC (DownTown Las Vegas Events Center). Vital Vegas goes one step further by reporting that execs are taking out an annex in order to create "a five-lane porte-cochère as well as an eye-popping gateway to the shiny new events center." An opening timeline for the downtown outdoor events space, set on the grounds of a demolished courthouse, has not yet been released.

While The Strip Is Changing, Which Three Casinos Are Stuck In The Past?

May 29, 2014 at 1:51 PM | by | Comments (27)

This year, things are really moving on The Strip. The Cromwell and High Roller are off and running, Bally’s is getting Bazaar, and room renovations are (finally) underway at The Quad. And, that’s just center Strip. There’s action at the ends of The Strip as well; rooms are being revealed at The Delano and Resorts World is taking steps towards reality.

In all the excitement, it’s easy to forget about those places that haven’t changed. Here at VegasChatter, we’re keeping track. We think it’s time the three casino-hotels listed below wake from their slumbers and give us something to get excited about.

What Bally's Grand Bazaar Shops Look Like Now

We showed you the updated renderings, now check out how things stand at the construction site for Bally's forthcoming Grand Bazaar Shops, an open-air mall due to arrive this fall.

The promenade replaces the fountains and space age-y (non)moving sidewalk along Bally's Strip-side frontage. When it makes its debut, it will instantly bring some 150 shops and eateries to The Strip.

VegasChatter Photographer Greg Clarke and reader Juan Gonzalez both pointed their lenses at the construction site over the weekend with Greg capturing the images you see above and at the very bottom of this post and Juan snapping the photos displayed in the gallery.

Did You Know? Some Rooms Are Already Ready At The Delano

Our sister site, HotelChatter, recently got her own up, close and personal look at the upcoming Delano Las Vegas which is currently transforming THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. While on the tour, they geeked out over these cool phones which make it easy to stay in bed while drunk sexting checking your email. What might be especially useful to frequent Vegas visitors, however, is that rooms at the Delano are already ready already. (Yes, we just stole that from a cheesy 90s commercial.)

Our source told us that rooms on the 37th floor have been in use by real, live guests lately. The rooms aren't available to book online but specially invited guests have been able to try them out. Indeed, that scoop checks out with this review on TripAdvisor.
