The good news is that price covers you and 24 of your (paying) friends so $50k divided by 25.. carry the one... equals two grand each. See? Much more reasonable, yea?
It used to be that no matter how much money you were willing to put down, you couldn’t get a chance to stay in the ultra-luxurious villas and suites many Strip properties reserve for only their highest level whales. Ironically, these rooms were often comped so it really didn’t matter how much money you were willing to part with, you weren’t getting in unless you had the most elite players card.
It now seems to be a trend for properties to open up this experience to anybody who wants to drop the dough. The Mirage recently announced its swanky villas and suites (pictured above), once reserved only for VIPs, are now open to the public for reservation. The accommodations are being touted as “affordable, yet luxurious, escapes” though it remains to be seen what the starting rates for these posh pads are. Hotel representatives have not disclosed these figures.

Our friends at Las Vegas Advisor discovered after much digging that prices were quietly raised for Bacchanal last month. So quietly, they had a hard time actually confirming the increase with reps. Here's a list of the pricing when Bacchanal first opened followed by how it stands now:

It's official. We've always enjoyed turning back the clock on Las Vegas through stories, books and videos, but Lost Vegas is our favorite series as it provides a chance to relive "the good ol' days" through the lenses of our doubly amazing readers.
VC fans have been filling our in-box with personal Lost Vegas photos and we've proudly been featuring them here. The latest to dust off his prints and show off his Sahara is Chazzy Gator. This shutterbug even captured the Casbar Theatre marquee. Fun fact: Who was the first person to get married at Caesars Palace? If you guessed a 20-year-old Charo (to 60-year-old bandleader Xavier Cugat in 1966), you're not only wicked smart but maybe spotted our tie-in. Feel free to leave David Brenner trivia in the comments below.
VegasChatter readers are the best. We showed you ours and you quickly reciprocated by showing us yours. We dug out some classic photos from our Vegas shoebox, the kind that those fancy photo apps only hope to mimic via filter. And, you sent in awesome memories of your Vegas past. Sadly, the bikini pics have so far gone un-reciprocated. But, we'll keep checking.

Earlier this week, a construction wall went up around the hotel's Galleria Bar, located just off the main entrance. No word on what's to come just yet. A sign only suggests folks in need of libation seek out the Seahorse Lounge, Shadow Bar or the new Apostrophe Bar instead. Thanks to VegasChatter Facebook fan Stephanie S.C. for the tip and the pics.

A VegasChatter fan dropped us a line earlier today to let us know those rumors about a new Border Grill location in Vegas are true. More specifically, those rumors about Border Grill coming to Caesars Palace. Our tipster discovered, while enjoying a cool marg, that the Caesars location should open...

It's time for the fourth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin to bring you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2013 -- the good, the bad, and the mind-boggling.
In 2013, Vegas kept us quite entertained. Sometimes better than others. The year came in with a bang for The Quad, brought a vault full of rock to LVH, gave us some Boyz who wanted to hold us tight at The Mirage, brought an epic journey with Loberace, saw a Pin Up with potential at the Strat, had us hearing voices at Bally's, and made us feel awful for Broadway at the Four Queens, among many, many other entertainment experiences. But which new show was the best for 2013? And, which keeps knocking our sock puppets off? Here are our picks:
Events / New Year's Eve / Fireworks / MGM Grand / Venetian / Planet Hollywood / Aria / Stratosphere / Treasure Island / Caesars Palace / → All Tags
It's a question we're asked every December and, we get it, it's an important one -- where can we see fireworks on New Year's Eve? Just standing on The Strip is a good idea, but where is an important factor, especially with towering resorts all around.
This year, just like the past two, fireworks will launch from the rooftops of seven resorts: Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. The entire production will last eight minutes and 23 seconds.
It's that time a year again. Holiday cheer is in the air and, of course, decorations are beginning to pop up all over The Strip. We took a quick stroll through the Palace of Caesar to take in the sights this Christmas season.
The main lobby is, without question, the most decorated area of the whole property. And, if you're dying for a picture in front of the tree, you'll find them just off the entrance.
During its hiatus, signs around the fountain proclaimed big things:
Atlantis will return soon with: a new look at the legend, a new story to tell, a new take on the characters, a new style of costumes, a new barrage of special effects, a new multi-screen experience, a new thrill for everyone!
Now that we've seen the new show, let's break it down.
A new look at the legend, a new story to tell, a new take on the characters: Yeah, no. It's the exact same story, told with the exact same arc, and has the exact same climax. If we were actually able to hear what was being said, we could confirm that the script is the same, but we weren't, nor will you be, that lucky. The audio is still incredibly difficult to make out in the crowded dome the fountain sits under.
