New Rumblings About The NHL And Vegas

October 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM | by | Comments (9)

Whether you scoff or are the eternal optimist, rumors of a NHL team for Las Vegas continue to capture everyone's attention.

On Friday, VegasChatter fan Joe C. pointed us to new rumblings on Facebook that billionaire William Foley is in "advanced talks with the NHL about bringing a team to Las Vegas for the 2017-18 season." The trigger behind the new rumors was an article in the New York Post that day which stated one scenario would be for "Foley to buy the money-losing Arizona Coyotes and move them to Las Vegas." An idea that both an NHL spokesman and a Coyotes co-owner denied when asked by the Post. Foley remained silent on the topic.

Will Wynn's New 'Broadway-Style' Show Get Under Our Skin?

October 7, 2014 at 2:59 PM | by | Comments (0)

Performers are excitedly reporting to Wynn this week for what a casting call described earlier this year as a 'Broadway-style' production. Wynn ID badges are now being proudly shared on social as the cast assembles ahead of the show's debut.

Actress/singer Lauren Molina -- who has been seen on Broadway in Sweeney Todd and Rock of Ages, according to Wikipedia, and is known for her role in The Skivvies (best explained by watching the video below) -- has been sharing her enthusiasm for being part of the production on social, describing it as featuring "4 other fabulous singers, 28 dancers, a 30 piece orchestra and so much sparkly jewelry that there will need to be strobe warnings." Even more interesting is that her commitment seems to only be six months, indicating the show will likely boast a revolving cast of featured singers.

Just A Theory, But This Rumored Slot Would Be A Big Bang With Fans

September 19, 2014 at 5:20 PM | by | Comments (7)

The top stars of Big Bang Theory have made headlines for making a mil per episode and, if rumors are true, fans may have a way to reach their own payday.

We recently heard talk that the uber popular CBS sitcom would be making its way to the casino floor as a slot machine next year. A quick Google found a 2013 thread on SlotFanatics.com that reports the slot as being in the pipeline for Aristocrat.

Chatter On What's Still To Come At The Linq

Linq: The Hotel is coming soon, but what's up with the still-empty storefronts on the promenade?

On a recent visit to The Linq, this writer became very curious about the outdoor mall’s next tenants, after seeing several wrapped storefronts and vacant spaces. A few questions to an assistant manager of one of the existing venues yielded some possible answers.

Naturally, staff from some of the existing venues have been speculating about their eventual neighbors. According to this employee, three venues are expected in the coming months: a (likely Asian-themed) restaurant called Pearl, a sushi restaurant, and a small club/ultralounge that’s being compared to the late Blush at Wynn Las Vegas.

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

July 30, 2014 at 7:59 PM | by | Comments (21)

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.

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
July 22, 2014 at 9:01 AM | by | Comments (0)

<>Update at bottom of post!

It’s been ten years since the iconic, exaltation-inducing Vermont quartet known as Phish last delivered a brain-melting performance in the city of Las Vegas. But as gamblers in this town are keenly aware, all streaks — hot or cold — are inevitably destined to be broken.

In the midst of a 3.0 summer tour confined mainly to the east coast and on the heels of their first studio album release since 2009’s Joy, VegasChatter has learned from a high-ranking source at MGM Grand that Phish are finally ready to return to Sin City for the first time since rocking the Thomas & Mack Center in 2004 with a run of shows at MGM Grand Garden Arena for this fall’s yet-to-be-announced tour.

With New Focus On The North Strip, A Rumor About Fontainebleau

July 15, 2014 at 4:15 PM | by | Comments (9)

Fontainebleau on May 30, 2014.

It's the inevitable question when we talk about the quickly approaching debut of SLS Las Vegas, dreams for the All Net Arena and Resort, or even the coming construction of MGM's City of Rock and Genting's Resorts World. What about that blue hotel? Or, if you know your Vegas history, what about Fontainebleau?

The Buzz Is The Cromwell Will Open On Monday

Where: 89109
April 16, 2014 at 10:05 PM | by | Comments (4)

While May 21 is the official debut date, The Cromwell could soft open in just days.

We're hearing from multiple sources that a transformed Bill's will be revealed as a swank boutique this Monday, April 21 at 4 p.m., specifically. Again, this is not official, but our tipsters say it's legit. From their physical appearances, we don't expect Drai's rooftop pool or Giada's restaurant to open until May, though.

Here's a sneak peek of a room that was posted on Instagram earlier today:

Now, a look at what else is becoming the talk of the town around Vegas:

Word has it that Bellagio is about to shakeup its dining lineup.

We're told the center Strip resort is planning to add a new lake-side patio for dining. It's not clear yet if it would be a standalone concept or attached to a current or forthcoming restaurant, but we're all for having another gorgeous spot to enjoy the Vegas Strip.

In March, we learned The Quad's room remodel was just weeks away from beginning. Now, we can confirm they are, indeed, underway.

Although quite a few VegasChatter readers have reported receiving sneak peeks of the model rooms, we've yet to see them ourselves or uncover design renderings. (If you have some you want to share on the down low, send them our way.)
