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.

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.

VegasAuditions.com’s Facebook page contained a post that caught our eye recently. It noted, “Wynn Las Vegas is casting DANCERS who sing, and DANCERS who do not sing, for a new production. Director: Phil McKinley.”
Another post on the page stated, “Wynn Las Vegas is casting for Broadway-style singers (male and female) for a stage production, with rehearsals beginning October - open ended contracted.”

<>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.
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?
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.)
Three new thrill attractions all open by May (or sooner)? Maybe.

We're not forgetting that dirty about face regarding resort fees, but this is helping us to be slightly ok with them now.

If you've been waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting.. and waiting.. and, well you get the picture.. for Slotzilla, you should probably back out of this story now. The latest rumor on Fremont Street won't make you happy.
Where once we heard this weekend could.. possibly.. see the return of zipliners to downtown, we now have a new rumbling to report. Rumors that Slotzilla won't open until at least April now. This is by no means official. Slotzilla stopped giving an opening timeline long ago. It's also been silent on Twitter of late. Its last tweet was sent on January 29.
