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 (20)

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.

Phish Set To Return To Las Vegas For 2014 Fall Tour

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.

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.)

An anonymous tipster tells us that all of the Las Vegas properties of Caesars Entertainment will receive WiFi by summer's end. And, that guests should be able to start enjoying it come March!

The New Rumor On Fremont About Slotzilla

February 12, 2014 at 8:38 PM | by | Comments (9)

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.
