Red Rock Resort Spending $35 Million On Improvements

Where: 11011 W Charleston Blvd [map], 89135
April 14, 2014 at 11:53 AM | by | Comments (2)

Just when we were raving about Red Rock Resort's suite offerings (and their spectacular views) comes news that the off-Strip property is planning to transform many of its most luxe accommodations as well as its dining lineup and its spa, too.

The Station Casinos property has earmarked $35 million which will include the total renovation of 26 of its most high-end suites as well as The Spa at Red Rock.

The biggest and most visible change for the general public, however, will be the creation of Restaurant Row at Red Rock which will add several new dining experiences to replace the recent losses of Pink's, Hachi and LBS. It will also add an expansive outdoor dining promenade to the property's main facade.

While Caesars Entertainment shows us there are still things we will never see coming by selling four of its resorts to itself (huh?), we're finally able to retire the use of "may," "rumor has it," and question marks in our posts about the remodel of The Quad's accommodations.

Binion's Remodeled Cafe Is Ready For You

Where: 128 Fremont Street [map], 89101
February 24, 2014 at 2:48 PM | by | Comments (8)

After closing in January for a remodel, relocating downstairs in the interim and debuting a new, expanded menu, Binion's Cafe is back in business in its original location.

The new, improved and larger cafe made its debut on Friday. We stopped by on Saturday and found hungry patrons once again claiming stools at the counter and filling tables, too.

The Quad To Become A Four Star Resort?

Where: 3535 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
February 17, 2014 at 7:34 PM | by | Comments (21)

The Quad hasn't made a rumored remodel official just yet, but employees continue to dish on its impeding arrival.

VegasChatter reader Jeff C. spoke to a Quad security guard recently who's seen the model rooms located inside the aging hotel. The guard told Jeff that he thought the new "single" accommodations could "easily" bill at $300 a night while a renovated suite could "easily" go for $500.

Checking In On Binion's Cafe Remodel

It won't be long now before Binion's reveals an all-new cafe.

Our @sammasseur stopped in for a peek at the renovation underway (as well as a bite inside its temporary location downstairs) earlier this week and found rust-colored paint on the walls and a brick-lined facade taking shape. Sam's cashier reports that the re-opening should be a week, week and a half away.

SLS Las Vegas Sets An Opening Weekend

February 5, 2014 at 5:10 PM | by | Comments (6)

Fall has been the long-stated target for the arrival of the SLS Las Vegas, but now it's ready to get a lot more specific.

Reps just posted their intentions to open the renovated and re-imagined resort on Labor Day Weekend on the SLS Las Vegas blog. (Labor Day is September 1.)

The photo above snapped by photographer Greg Clarke shows the state of exterior construction as of a few days ago. SLS, formerly the Sahara, will offer 1,600 rooms and suites, a casino, and a range of nightlife and dining experiences as well as retail offerings by Fred Segal.

The Sahara closed on May 16, 2011.

Construction Round-Up: From Downtown To The Strip

February 3, 2014 at 7:40 PM | by | Comments (6)

Where a construction boom once meant the rise of mega-resorts for Las Vegas, these days it heralds overhauls, from top-to-bottom to a bar here and a restaurant there. Just about everywhere you look, construction scaffolding can be found. And, will be, for some time.

Here's a round-up of where things stand for several coming soon projects:

Bier Garten (Plaza)

This was the scene at the Plaza's Bier Garten three days ago, but possibly not anymore? This morning, a call to the concierge desk to discover an opening date yielded the news that it's open?? We haven't been able to confirm that yet, though. We do know execs had hoped to debut the indoor/outdoor beer garden over the Super Bowl weekend, if the weather cooperated. Update: We have confirmed it is, indeed, open.

There's another sign of life at the Riviera.

Recently, we told you how the aging north Strip casino wasn't quite ready for life support just yet. In fact, its Versailles Theatre is all new and ready for a comeback.
