From Smoking to Pets: More Things To Know About SLS Las Vegas

July 25, 2014 at 6:38 PM | by | Comments (9)

A view today of the SLS porte cochere. That empty lot will host MGM's City of Rock.

We may have to wait until August 23 to step foot inside SLS Las Vegas, but we didn't have to wait that long to get some of our 'must know' questions answered.

SLS COO Rob Oseland held a Facebook chat on Wednesday and answered a host of queries on everything from whether the renovated resort would be gay friendly (it will) to whether guests will be able to opt out of the resort fee (they won't). Here are a few more responses you should know:

The SLS Las Vegas Casino Looks Like It Will Live Up To Its Promises

Where: 2535 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

SLS Las Vegas opens in a month on August 23 and this gambler gets more and more excited with each bit of news he hears about the casino. And, now I'm hearing SLS could have the most player friendly gaming on The Strip!

Last May when SLS Las Vegas (formerly the Sahara) shared that it wouldn’t open with a poker room (execs will reconsider if there is demand) or a traditional sportsbook, I was slightly concerned about the kind of gaming that might be offered. A combination sportsbook-slash-restaurant sounds like a very modern way to extract revenue as opposed to offering an amenity to guests.

Earlier this year, however, promising details were revealed about the SLS Las Vegas casino itself. I became cautiously optimistic given the tagline, "generous pay tables you love." When details were revealed on Bazaar Casino (an evenings only gaming concept), I was pleased to learn there would be some very playable blackjack games available.

The Dream For The Land Between SLS And Fontainebleau Is All Net

July 14, 2014 at 4:11 PM | by | Comments (11)

We thought this was one hoop dream that would be unrealized, but plans to build a billion dollar arena and resort on the land between SLS Las Vegas and the Fontainebleau are apparently still in play.

On Friday, we told you how Sahara Las Vegas Corp., owners of the acreage that once hosted a Wet 'N' Wild, were seeking use permits for everything from a recreational facility and restaurants to a nightclub, offices, shops and even a grocery store. What we didn't know at the time is that this all seems to be connected to a December announcement by former NBA and UNLV basketball player Jackie Robinson in regards to a privately funded $1.3 billion All Net Arena and Resort project. The plan would install a 22,000-seat arena on the land (totaling 27 acres, in all) as well as a casino-less resort (which our eagle-eyed readers noticed was conspicuously absent from our list of permits on Friday). A VegasChatter tipster tells us he was told last month that the resort would be a 500-room luxury five-star hotel and spa and would stand 45 stories tall.

Big Plans (Again) For The Land Between SLS Las Vegas And Fontainebleau

Where: 89109
July 11, 2014 at 9:00 PM | by | Comments (14)

A view of SLS Las Vegas from Paradise earlier today.

The north Strip is officially awakening from its slumber. SLS Las Vegas debuts in just over a month (August 23) and may soon be bracketed by construction to the north, west and south. A Walgreens is already underway to the north (on the other side of Sahara Avenue) and will open next year. (Admittedly, not that exciting, but hey, we'll take it.) A City of Rock will soon rise on the west side of The Strip with a debut of 2015, too. Now, it looks like that long abandoned plot of land to the south of SLS -- you know, the one that once held the hottest place to cool off in town? -- may see some action of its own.

Once the site of Wet 'N' Wild, the 27 acres between SLS and the husk of Fontainebleau is owned by Sahara Las Vegas Corp., a subsidiary of Archon Group. Earlier this week, executives approached a local government board seeking use permits for everything under the sun. And, we're not exaggerating. Check it out for yourself:

SLS Lights Sign.

SLS Las Vegas has flipped the switch on its 153-foot-tall, Strip-front marquee. VegasChatter staff photographer Greg Clarke swung by earlier today when the digital display was monkeying around with a few different images. It was clearly, however, a 'monkey see, monkey do' production. Exhibit A:
