When Vegas Pays Off In Views, Not Bills

Sometimes, winning big in Vegas isn't always about being paid in a currency of green, but in zzz's.

An Update On When miX Will Be Out, Rivea In At Delano

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119
April 23, 2015 at 5:40 PM | by | Comments (0)

During a recent stay at Delano Las Vegas, we were able to speak with staff members at miX on when the long-running fine dining destination with a view would officially close for good. We knew the time was coming, as we've mentioned previously, but there was no set date as to when the restaurant would serve its last meal. A server now tells us the last day miX will be open is May 30th.

Just One Dish: Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich At Delano Beach Club

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119
April 23, 2015 at 3:49 PM | by | Comments (3)

Usually at pools and beach clubs the food is pretty basic. The menus include classic staples like burgers, sandwiches, fruit platters, chicken strips etc. Nothing extraordinary. When I visit pools, the last thing on my mind is the food. I’m usually more interested in the drinks (don’t judge). So, when I recently visited Delano Beach Club, the last thing I expected was to be blown away by a food item on their menu. But, I was.

My guest ordered the Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich and I initially cringed. The sounds of crab and shrimp salad didn’t appeal to me, especially in the heat and while drinking the beach club’s sweet, sugary drinks. I was wrong about the sandwich, though, and pleasantly surprised. It was fantastic!

Checking Out Delano Beach Club

So, we gave you the scoop on Delano Beach Club, the newest Vegas pool on The Strip. The new kid on the block opened just next to Mandalay Bay Beach a little over a week ago and they invited us to check out the venue first hand.

I went to DBC on a Thursday, which was perfect because that means it wasn’t too hectic or crowded. My guest and I were greeted by a group of eager, inviting staff who set us up in chairs right at the edge of the pool. We were informed that the chairs are complimentary if you are a Delano hotel guest and show a room key at the door. This is a plus considering some beach clubs charge hundreds of dollars for a chair (insane. so insane).

Where You'll Find Delano Beach Club At Mandalay Bay

Where: 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Meant to send ripples through the Vegas pool scene this April, Delano Beach Club is still a work in progress. But, not as much as we'd thought.

For some reason or other, we assumed the coming pool experience, which will take over a portion of Mandalay Bay Beach, would involve extensive 'rip it out and mix it up' changes. A walk around the entire pool complex Thursday, however, yielded no grandoise new entrance, no construction equipment and no piles of dirt.

You Can Rest Easy Now At Delano Las Vegas

Delano Las Vegas is ready for some pillow talk.

After its summer 2014 debut, the hotel formerly known as THEhotel quickly garnered a ton of buzz. For its pillows. Or rather, for what it was passing off as pillows. Internet review sites filled with complaints about pillows that were "rock hard," "hard as concrete," "like slates of cement," and "like bricks." Some guests even reported they were compelled to buy new pillows, or resort to using the bathrobe instead. Thinking they couldn't be all that bad, we found out on three separate occasions that they were and gave thanks for that bathrobe tip.

For the Love of Cocktails: Vegas' First Real Cocktail Fest

February 6, 2015 at 5:53 PM | by | Comment (1)

Back and bigger than ever, February's annual For the Love of Cocktails festival of all things mixology has morphed into a full-fledged multi-day extravaganza.

What started as a charity cocktail tasting has undergone a blossoming of epic proportions. Three whole days of spirits, cigars, cocktails and, most importantly, education (February 12-14). Vegas has become something of a beacon in the cocktail world. Many elements have been driving forces in Vegas becoming a true "cocktail city," from local legends like Herbs & Rye taking titles in Tales of the Cocktail (the New Orleans spirits industry pilgrimage) to several bars making the tops of national lists. Now, we can add yet another fanciful feather in our boozy cap: a big ol' honkin' cocktail fest.

Unexpected Surprises Of 2014

December 30, 2014 at 6:25 PM | by | Comments (6)

It's time for the fifth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin bringing you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2014 -- the good, the bad and the mind-boggling.

This year threw more than a few curveballs at us so this category was among the hardest to decide and, honestly, could have gone more than a few different ways. Would it be the sale of LVH or The Cosmo? Both? Eh, they'd been rumored for a while so were they really a surprise? Would it be the split between Caesars Entertainment and Gansevoort? Or was that more of an unexpected blessing? How about when Harmon suddenly began coming down? The abrupt closure of Mamma Mia! at Trop? Mall Cop 2 filming at Wynn? Or, when we spied that Giada's name had been misspelled on the Cromwell's website? (That would have won the 'really?!?' category, for sure.) After much discussion, here's our picks:

Best New Bar Of 2014

December 30, 2014 at 5:00 PM | by | Comment (1)

It's time for the fifth annual VegasChatter Awards! Today, we begin bringing you the best and worst of the year. All of our picks are based on what we've personally experienced in Vegas over 2014 -- the good, the bad and the mind-boggling.

The Las Vegas Strip got a handful of new watering holes in 2014 and several really distinguished themselves with creative craft cocktails or a fun ambiance, sometimes both. In a world where “handcrafted” and “artisanal” are getting trite and often misused, it’s nice to find a few spots doing it right.

Giving Thanks That Delano Stopped That Overnight Valet Fee

Where: 89109

Yes, Virginia, there is an about face in Vegas.

When Delano Las Vegas (a rebranded and renovated THEhotel at Mandalay Bay) debuted in September, guests who turned over their car to valet were faced with a $20 fee when they went to reclaim their wheels the next day. Execs tried to use the ol' "well, they're doing it" game plan while pointing to Four Seasons and Mandarin Oriental to justify the charge; however, if guest reaction was anything like the responses of VegasChatter readers, some of whom vowed to never stay there because of it, it's no surprise it's been quietly abandoned, as reported by VC member @davey123.

Now, what should we turn our collective powers towards next? Twenty-five dollar personal use fees for the minibar? We're looking at you, Aria.
