A Noodle House Will Open At Paris In Late July (Or Early August)

Where: 89109
June 26, 2014 at 1:38 PM | by | Comments (0)

After we rode up the Eiffel Tower last month, we ambled around the faux cobblestone streets of Paris Las Vegas and discovered a construction wall for a new restaurant, Yong Kang Street, a dumpling and noodle house. We snapped this pic and meant to follow-up but then got distracted by some other big restaurant news.

However, yesterday we heard back from HIG Management, the folks behind F.A.M.E. at The Linq and several other restaurants, about when the spot will open. Get your chopsticks ready as they are targeting a late July/early August debut.

How To Vegas Like Mindy Kaling

June 25, 2014 at 9:34 PM | by | Comments (0)

The VegasChatter corporate offices went on high alert when actress/producer/writer Mindy Kaling indicated on social media that a Vegas trip was imminent. It's always interesting to see what a celebrity will do in Sin City and usually pretty (although, for most, unintentionally) entertaining, too.

While Prince Harry still holds the honor of cheekiest visit to date, Mindy kept fans enthralled through a constant stream of social media updates. After following (obsessively) along, here's a quick guide on how to do Vegas, Kaling style:

1. Pack the appropriate essentials.

Vegas dress? Check. Bling? Check. Multiple bathing suits? Check.

The 'Locks of Love' at Paris Las Vegas Won't Break Any Bridges Anytime Soon

June 10, 2014 at 4:23 PM | by | Comments (0)

Last month, when we rode up the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, we noticed something a little, well, hokey before we boarded the elevator. Yes, we know this is Vegas where hokey-ness reigns supreme. And, yes, we know we were standing in a cheap imitation of the real city of Paris. The sight still had this Chatter'er rolling her eyes, though.

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, Ballyís is getting Bazaar, and room renovations are (finally) underway at The Quad. And, thatís just center Strip. Thereís 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, itís easy to forget about those places that havenít changed. Here at VegasChatter, weíre keeping track. We think itís time the three casino-hotels listed below wake from their slumbers and give us something to get excited about.

The Eiffel Tower vs. The High Roller: Which One Should You Choose?

May 20, 2014 at 4:58 PM | by | Comments (17)

When riding the High Roller last month at The Linq, we couldn't help but wonder if the views of Las Vegas and beyond were really that exclusive, especially when the Eiffel Tower at Paris has been giving the same sort of views for the past 15 years.

So we rode up the Eiffel Tower the other week to do a bit of comparison.

· The Eiffel Tower costs $14 for an adult ticket. The High Roller is $24.95 during the day and $34.95 from 6 p.m. on. Winner: Eiffel Tower

· The Eiffel Tower is pretty straightforward. Ride up an elevator and, voila!, viewing time. The High Roller puts you through an elaborate boarding process before you get to even step into the observation wheel pods. Winner: Eiffel Tower

· The Eiffel Tower lets you make your own time. You can hang out as long or as little as you want. The High Roller traps keeps you in the pod for about 30 minutes. Winner: Eiffel Tower (Unless you hook up in the pod then: High Roller)

Drunk In Love With Vegas

March 18, 2014 at 3:30 PM | by | Comments (2)

The grandeur of Vegas can jade people pretty quickly, one thing after another raising the bar and making incredibly cool things seem mundane. But, nothing rekindles appreciation like a long night of drinking. Or, so we've heard. After indulging in a few during a recent bachelor party weekend, this writer found himself intoxicated in with Vegas. Here were a few of my favorite sights:

Go-Go Dancers at Flamingo

Strolling past beautiful women in Vegas is nothing new, but for some reason, I couldn't resist the moving bodies I saw out of the corner of my eye while passing the Flamingo. Like a bug to a light, my shoulders turned, slowly closing the distance and stopping to stand in the entryway, my left shoulder on the edge of the doorway. Careful: Limit staring to five minutes, lest you draw attention from security or, worse, fall in love.

The Soul Patrol will be moving on as Taylor Hicks finishes up his residency at Napoleon's inside Paris this April.

After a successful run at Ballyís, the American Idol champ moved next door to Paris where he has performed since the beginning of the year. Though his residency is ending, fans of the silver-haired crooner will soon have a new album to look forward.

Las Vegas holds a special spot in Hicksí heart as it was here he first auditioned for American Idol, a move that helped bring him into the mainstream spotlight. As the first Idol winner to secure a Vegas residency, he brought an old-school Southern sound to Sin City.

Sugar Factory Works To Expand Strip-Side Dining

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

In September, Sugar Factory sought government approval to expand its Strip-side dining at Paris Las Vegas. Now, the work has begun.

VegasChatter's @sammasseur found construction fencing hemming in foot traffic on both sides this morning. Some blockades kept pedestrians away from an area along Las Vegas Boulevard where landscaping was being removed (seen below) while other barriers prevented folks from walking too close to the exterior of Paris where a new raised patio is taking shape (shown above).

Yet To Live The Suite Life In Vegas? Here's How To Live It Up (For A Day)

November 21, 2013 at 9:22 PM | by | Comments (0)

While many look for the lowest rate when choosing a Vegas accommodation, others splurge to ensure a suite getaway. But, if you've never been able to enjoy a high-end accommodation, or just wanted to funnel your Vegas vacation funds to other parts of your stay, you'll soon have a chance to make this one suite holiday season.

Junior Achievement of Southern Nevada will give you access to five of Las Vegas' swankiest suites for just $100. Now, now, don't get too excited. We said access, not the keys! Still, if you want to see how over-the-top accommodations can get in Vegas, there's really no better way as Junior Achievement also provides complimentary shuttle service to each hotel as well as in-suite tastings and beverages at every stop along the way.

Don't Put Off Experiencing The Eiffel Tower At Paris Las Vegas

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Blvd South [map], 89109

Want a picture just like this saved in your camera roll forever?

You don't need to be a VIP to capture it. The Eiffel Tower Experience at Paris gives you the opportunity to travel up 47 stories to a 360-degree, open-air cage high atop Vegas' Eiffel Tower.

The chance to get a view of all sides of The Strip is a truly breathtaking experience. The area is rather cramped and can feel a tad crowded, but with a bit of patience, you'll get your chance to see whichever direction of picturesque Las Vegas you please.

Sugar Factory Wants To Expand At Paris

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 28, 2013 at 10:13 PM | by | Comment (1)

Recently a VegasChatter fan wrote to us wondering why there are so many candy shops in Vegas and pointing out that, on a recent visit, "it seemed like every resort and mall had one of the two to three chains." We've been surprised about Vegas' sugar addiction, too, but admit we've made a purchase or two ourselves over the years.

Obviously, there's enough demand to support all the venues we see, and then some, apparently. In fact, Sin City's sweet high will soar even higher in the coming months. Hershey's Chocolate World is coming soon to New York-New York despite the fact there's a M&M's World right across the street. Sugar Factory also recently announced it's building another location (what will be its fifth in town) in Town Squareand, now, we're learning it wants to expand its outpost at Paris, too.
