    Lucky Dragon Heads to the Auction Block by Susan Stappleton

    In the market for a Chinese-themed resort? Lucky Dragon, which closed its restaurants and casino earlier this month, heads into foreclosure after just over a year in business. The resort received a default notice in September for a $90 million loan and goes on the auction block on Feb. 6, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

    The first resort built from the ground up since Cosmopolitan in 2010 allegedly owes millions to its lead building contractor, while staff was laid off.

    The resort’s developer, Andrew Fonfa, borrowed $90 million to complete construction on the 2.5-acre resort that features a nine-story hotel and a 27,500-square-foot casino as well as Dragon’s Alley, the night market at the resort, Pearl Ocean with its dim sum menu for lunch and dinner, Phoenix with a focus on modern Chinese fare, and Bao Nowwith its casual dishes. Fonfa, who also owns neighboring Allure residential building, also used the EB-5 foreign investor program that promises green cards for investors to finance the project.

    Big Apple Coaster Pushes High-Tech Thrills to Cosmic Levels with New Virtual Reality Experience

    Fasten your safety belts and prepare for liftoff! New York-New York Hotel & Casino will take attraction rides to new levels when The Big Apple Coaster Virtual Reality Experience debuts February 7. The first of its kind in Las Vegas, this white-knuckle ride high above The Strip will combine thrill-seekers’ need for speed with advanced, immersive graphics, resulting in a 4D experience that’s out of this world.

    The first virtual reality ride to incorporate popular current landmarks into its creative visuals, the ride combines real G forces, drops and the high speed of The Big Apple Coaster to create an unforgettable experience.

    The adventure begins as riders are equipped with virtual reality headsets, and they take on the role of a scientist in hot pursuit of an alien that escaped their research facility. The chase soars high above the Nevada desert and up the Las Vegas Strip, all virtually, of course.

    “The Big Apple Coaster has provided heart-racing excitement to millions of visitors,” said Cynthia Kiser Murphey, president and chief operating officer of New York-New York. “Combining leading-edge technology with the thrill of our coaster overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, we are now able to offer visitors an experience that is new, adrenaline-inducing and something you can only find at New York-New York.”

    This new experience was designed by VR Coaster®, the world’s leading creator of virtual reality enhancements on thrill rides. The coaster’s passenger trains are equipped with sensors that use wireless connectivity to precisely synchronize the virtual reality creative visuals with the real ride. This advanced, lightweight technology was developed to withstand the ups, downs, dives and loops of a roller coaster without losing connection to the virtual reality headsets. The experience utilizes VR Coaster’s unique graphic system, “Hybrid VR,” to deliver 3D footage in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second for high-quality visuals and a more immersive ride.

    Thomas Wagner, co-founder and managing partner of VR Coaster, said, “We’re very proud to have had the opportunity to work on such an iconic attraction. The creative freedom New York-New York gave us on all aspects of the ride, from storyboards to the final virtual reality application, was invaluable. Our most exciting accomplishment with this experience was the fact that we had never before incorporated three completely different environments into a single ride… the research facility, the desert and The Strip… each with its own creative and technical challenges.”

    Measuring 4,777 ft. in track length, The Big Apple Coaster is the longest roller coaster in the world equipped with virtual reality. The coaster also is the world’s first to feature a 180-degree “heartline” twist and dive maneuver. This, along with loops, negative Gs and top speed of 67 mph, gives guests a thrilling Las Vegas Strip experience.

    Murphey said, “We are thrilled our partnership with VR Coaster allowed us to bring this new, exciting opportunity to New York-New York, and we couldn’t be happier with the relationship or results. And for guests who adore The Big Apple Coaster just the way it is, or aren’t quite ready for the virtual reality option, never fear. You can still enjoy the experience just the way you want it.”

    Tickets are $20 for The Big Apple Coaster Virtual Reality Experience and $15 to ride the roller coaster the traditional way. All passengers must be at least 54” to ride and a minimum of 13 years old to ride with virtual reality.

    Music Icon Cher Debuts “Believe” Fountains Show at World-Famous Fountains of Bellagio

    A music icon officially met an iconic Las Vegas landmark last night when the Goddess of Pop, Cher, arrived at the world-famous Fountains of Bellagioto debut a new fountains show to her hit song, “Believe.” Cher, joined by MGM Resorts International and AEG Presents executives, viewed the new show for the first time alongside hundreds of fans gathered at the Strip-side attraction.

    “It’s an honor to be part of the MGM Resorts entertainment family and to be included in such a spectacular landmark on the Las Vegas Strip,” said Cher.

    Launching her career in the 1960s as part of Sonny & Cher, the Oscar, Emmy, GRAMMY and Golden Globe Award-winning iconic star made unprecedented strides in what had long been a male-dominated industry. A worldwide superstar for more than five decades, Cher has sold more than 100 million records and conquered more challenges than a handful of other talents combined – recording, concerts, film, Broadway acting, television and directing.

    Cher partnered with MGM Resorts International in 2016 to launch an exclusive extended engagement to perform at Park Theater, located at Monte Carlo in Las Vegas, and at The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland. Since the premiere of CLASSIC CHER in February 2017, the over-the-top spectacle that celebrates the Cher’s phenomenal 50-year career has continued to receive rave reviews from across the globe, being hailed as a MUST-SEE show by critics and audiences.

    CLASSIC CHER performances are currently running through February 3 and May 2 – 19 at Park Theater at Monte Carlo as well as February 17 – 25 at The Theater at MGM National Harbor.

    The GRAMMY Award-winning song is the newest show choreographed by WET, the original Fountains’ creators. WET Executive Designer & Director of Choreography Peter Kopik carefully choreographed the show ensuring the rapid water movements matched the same vigorous energy showcased in the instantly recognizable song. The Fountains of Bellagio is complimentary with daily performances that rotate more than 30 songs.


    At first, it seems an odd fit, the seminal mind-bender of television shows and one of America’s favorite family past times. But the juxtaposition of “The Twilight Zone” and miniature golf proves to be a delightful experience as you play 18 warped holes at Bally’s Las Vegas.

    As with all mini golf courses, what you’re looking for is the combination of adhering to the promised theme, the level of intrigue / difficulty of the course and the overall fun factor.

    The Twilight Zone by Monster Mini Golf goes big on trying to set the correct mood. This course is, after all, designed by the same company that lets players use their “Love Guns” aka putters to try and sink holes-in-one at KISS by Monster Mini Golf over at Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

    Here, they bring the theme of “The Twilight Zone” television show, which aired from 1959 – 1964, produced 156 episodes and is currently being rebooted for CBS All Access, to life. Awesome artwork, including almost life-like comic murals along the black walls, really completes the experience. There are also an impressive number of creatures from the series and a hole dedicated just to “Time Enough at Last” – one of the most famous episodes – featuring an entire landscape of a post-apocalyptic world after the detonation of a nuclear bomb, mimicking that classic episode.

    Where the course strays greatly from the show is in the soundtrack. As opposed to the ominous, mood-inducing music the sci-fi series is known for, the mini-golf course is full of fun tracks from the 1950s and 60s. That’s not a bad thing as it lends itself to the overall vibe of the joint. While playing through, one of my course mates said to me, “We need to rent this place out and have a midnight party.” In a way, with the low lights, glowing creatures and shindig-style music, it feels like it could be some weird rave in a dimension we have yet to visit.

    As for the level of difficulty, it’s got all the classic holes. The loop-de-loop, the hit-the-ball-at-the-exact-angle-or-get-a-five, the if-it-goes-in-the-middle-tube-you-are-good-but-if-not-you-are
    screwed – they’re all there decked out “Twilight Zone”-style.

    Overall, The Twilight Zone mini golf is a great family activity and a fun way to kill a few hours. The location, tucked away in the downstairs of Bally’s Las Vegas past the REAL BODIES exhibit, lends itself to the isolation of the show. Once you’re in it, there is no getting out – not before the 18th hole anyway.


    “Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place!”

    When a show kicks off like that, you know you’re in for a wild ride. The title of “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man,” the wildly interactive show at Paris Las Vegas, is quite a mouthful and might leave you wondering what exactly it is. Is it a self-help seminar? Is it your awkward grade school sex ed class, just on stage? Is it a raunchy male revue? After checking it out, I can honestly say, it’s some of the most fun you can have on the Vegas Strip with your clothes on.

    This is a show where nothing’s inappropriate and nothing’s off the table. Heck, they’ll even give you tips for onthe table, if that’s what you’re into. “Sex Tips” started out as a Broadway surprise smash hit before heading to its insanely appropriate destination in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, known for its risqué, uninhibited fun. On the eve of their first performance together, we sat down with the new cast to get their take on the show that’s over the top in all the best ways.

    Lucky for “Sex Tips” audiences, new cast members “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay and recording artist and MTV star Chester Lockhart aren’t intimidated by much of anything, even sharing the lowdown on gettin’ down.

    This show is bananas. Literally. It shouldn’t take your mind long to wander to just how that fruit might appear as a prop in a show like this. What you may not be able to deduce is the overall premise of the show, so here’s the 411: Shay plays a stuffy teaching fellow. Lockhart’s character is her complete opposite, a flamboyant book author with zero filter. He doles out advice to unleash her inner passions for the hunky stage assistant/sound guy, Stefan, while she moderates a book forum about his sexual manifesto.

    Shay inherited her role from Playboy Playmate and “Girls Next Door” star Kendra Wilkinson. Shay said of her unique take on the role, “There will be a little bit of Scheana sass in it, in a professional way, because I am playing a senior teaching fellow so I’m not Scheana from West Hollywood.” The “Sex Tips” star also added, “My character is very nerdy, professional, quite frazzled, nervous, so it’s totally different from anything you’ve ever seen me do.”

    Lockhart’s character, Dan Anderson, is the perfect playful foil to her uptight professor. Lockhart took over the role from “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” actor Jai Rodriguez. He quipped, “Jai is like everyone’s best friend and I am like everyone’s sassy best friend.” He noted, “I’m always supporting you and encouraging you to be your best self but maybe throwing a hint of shade along the way. So you’ve got to stay on your toes. And I think that’s why we have such a good relationship. We kind of egg each other on, which is great to see on stage.”

    He’s right. Their blunt dynamic leads to more laugh-out-loud moments than you could even imagine, especially when it comes to audience participation. Shay noted, “We’re having a good time with it.” Audiences will too and lucky guests can even end up on stage and be in the show. Shay added you never know what you’re going to get because, “It’s very audience interactive, so based off of who is up on stage with him determines what comes out of Chester’s mouth.”

    Shay, who rose to fame as a sultry server on the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” spin-off, “Vanderpump Rules,” went on to marry and divorce a costar from that show.

    “I’ve had a lot of negative comments saying things like ‘you can’t even keep a man, why would we take tips from you?’” Shay said. “And I’m like, ‘I’m not the one giving them. I’m the one getting them so maybe I CAN keep one!’”

    I literally watched people cry from laughter while seeing their spouses participate up on stage. Helping Lockhart’s character bring his book’s concepts to life will get you over any insecurities or performance anxieties. You’d be surprised how liberating it can be to snort over sexual subtext with a group of your new best friends in a Vegas theater.

    Lockhart noted how this show really does have something or everyone. “Sex Tips” takes a tongue-in-cheek (and other places!) look at topics most people are eager to explore, whether they want to admit it or not. He said, “It appeals to so many different types of people. You look at the audience and you see older people, younger people, gay, straight, people from all over the world. It’s something that everyone can universally enjoy in an unexpected way. It’s something everyone is going to relate to at the end of the day. It’s super interactive and makes you feel like you are part of this experience together. You’re part of the show.”

    Shay said audiences can expect to be, “laughing a lot,” just like she did when she first saw it and her abs hurt from cracking up. Shay let us in on a little secret from rehearsals. She said, “There’s a part where we bring up three people from the audience and I’m not going to be able to look at them because in rehearsals I’m just dying laughing but my character shouldn’t be laughing at anything so I’m just going to pick a person in the audience and stare at them because if not, I’ll break character and I can’t.” SEX AND VEGAS: A PERFECT PAIRING

    Lockhart’s not afraid of some snappy back-and-forth with the crowd. He said, “It’s all part of the fun. Everyone came to have their own version of fun, so we’ll just laugh it off and make it part of the show.”

    In a town like Las Vegas where what happens here is supposed to stay here, “Sex Tips” breaks all the rules and lets you have the best possible souvenir with its titular take-home message nestled in a night of laughs.

    Cirque du Soleil eschews acrobats in next Las Vegas Strip production

    There are some certainties in Cirque du Soleil’s largely abstract world. One is that Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak Live!” production closes at Luxor Oct. 28.

    And there won’t be another Cirque-produced magic show taking its place.

    And, we’ve always expected Cirque shows to highlight acrobatics, the “circus” theme of the company’s very title.

    Not so fast.

    The next production Cirque stages on the Strip will be devoid of the very acrobatics that made the company the dominant production vehicle in the city.

    Fright Dome creator brings new ‘Saw’-themed attraction to Las Vegas
    Jason Egan occasionally muses about cooling off his schedule, selling his empire, maybe even retiring.

    But the man who founded “Fright Dome” at Circus Circus is not finished with his frights of fancy. The 39-year-old Egan is opening the first immersive horror experience themed for the “Saw” film franchise in a 30,000-square-foot building just off the Strip.

    The Official Saw Escape Experience opens Jan. 26. The horror attraction takes over the aged building that was long home to the Paul-Son Gaming Company’s casino chip factory at 2121 Industrial Road, just a 30-second drive north from Circus Circus.

    Egan has partnered with “Saw” production company Lionsgate Films in his Fright Dome fortress. Lionsgate licensed “Saw” houses at Fright Dome in 2009 and 2010. Egan has spent the previous 12 months mapping a concept for the escape house and scouting properties near Circus Circus.

    Florida man hits $1 million jackpot at the Cosmopolitan

    A Florida man hit a $1 million jackpot Tuesday night while playing a Simpsons slot machine with his girlfriend at the Cosmopolitan.

    The 26-year-old vacationer from Orlando, whose name was not released, had been playing for about 20 minutes when he lined up all the Homer Simpson characters for the jackpot, the resort said. The payout was $1,033,339.

    Last month, a guest celebrating his 21st birthday at the Cosmopolitan hit a Wheel of Fortune jackpot for more than $400,000.

    Downtown’s Golden Gate to celebrate 112th birthday/Las Vegas Sun

    One of the oldest structures in Southern Nevada, the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino will celebrate its 112th birthday on Saturday.

    The hotel was founded in 1906, a year after much of the land that would become downtown Las Vegas was parceled out and sold in an auction next to the rail line. Room rates, according to the company, were a $1 a day.

    The hotel has undergone numerous renovations over the years. A new tower was added in 2012. Last year, the resort expanded the casino floor, added a new entry and renovated its bar along the front of the building along Fremont Street.

    However, according to a company spokeswoman, the basic structure of the hotel, including most of the casino and the rooms, date to 1906.

    “It has been an honor to be a part of the influential evolution of Golden Gate in downtown Las Vegas,” CEO Derek Stevens said. “We are grateful for how Golden Gate has paved the way for new properties such as our neighboring 18 Fremont project, and we are thrilled to see its continuous adaption to the community.”

    The Golden Gate will offer various food and drink specials to guests who visit the hotel from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. There will be free Champagne for visitors who join the One Card loyalty program; $25 match play; and special birthday cake shots for 99 cents — a nod to the property’s original shrimp cocktail price.

    Luxor esports arena to open in March by Thomas Moore

    Esports Arena Las Vegas, the new gaming venue where the LAX nightclub used to be located at the Luxor, will open March 22, according to a statement released today by Allied Esports, the company managing the facility.

    MGM Resorts announced in April that LAX had closed and would be replaced by the esports facility, the second one in Las Vegas and the only arena fully dedicated to esports on the Las Vegas Strip.

    The facility will feature tournaments but will also be open to casual players.

    Many of the acts at Absinthe, the naughty and thrilling show in the Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace, are difficult to describe with common words. It sometimes becomes necessary to invent new words in order to accurately portray the magnificent and sometimes hilarious feats we’ve witnessed in that tent. In the case of Absinthe’s newest act, the Silicon Valley Girls, we’re going to go with a new word: Burlesque-robatics.

    “Their act looks like Charlie’s Angels were meant to be on undercover assignment to infiltrate a cheerleader squad, but Bosley sent them to a bar brawl in a Kiev mafia dive by mistake.” That’s another way to describe this talented trio—as the show’s host and producer, The Gazillionaire, did when the new addition was announced last month.

    Using elements of dance, contortion and gymnastics and demonstrating superhuman strength, balance and sex appeal, the Silicon Valley Girls are instant standouts in a show full of memorable performers. If you haven’t returned to Absinthe recently, it’s time to go again, take it all in and maybe make up some new words of your own.


    Many of us like to start our night of fun with a drinky-poo or two before we really get going, and Cocktail Cabaret at Caesars Palace really celebrates that joie de vivre. The cast and band mixes everything from pop to Broadway standards and even opera with the aplomb of a bartender creating your drink. Created by show producers Philip Fortenberry (also the band’s pianist) and Keith Thompson, the production stars longtime Las Vegas performers Maren Wade, Niki Scalera, Eric Jordan Young and Daniel Emmet.

    In the wonderfully intimate Cleopatra’s Barge, Wade’s slowed-down version of “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” hooks you immediately; from there, the singers bring out everything from “Viva Las Vegas” to “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” You’ll hear female duets, male duets and piano medleys. Emmet bursts into Italian lyrics in the most unexpected places, and Young is both a wry host and a powerful voice. Scalera’s “Diamonds Are Forever” get everyone in the joint paying attention. And all four join for a medley of alcohol-infused lyrics that will definitely have you thinking about another tipple. And the costume changes! Both girls and guys go glitzy, glam and elegant.

    The whole thing leaves you slightly tipsy from both song and spirit and ready to head to your next adventure—and that’s exactly what the show intends.

    Caesars Palace, 5 p.m. Wed.-Sat., $55 plus tax and fee, 21+. 702.777.2782

    Caesars Palace Ushers in 2018 with Major Star Power and Preps for Two Openings

    During a private party for 3,000 invited guests, Caesars Palace celebrated the New Year with two glitzy performances. Both America’s Got Talent winner Darci Lynne Farmer, a 13-year-old Oklahoman ventriloquist, and 20-time Grammy nominee Fergie entertained and interacted with the crowd inside a Palace Tower ballroom. And from the crowd’s response during the Fire and Ice-themed soiree, it’s clear that both acts could certainly sustain a local residency.

    But while Farmer and The Duchess may not have deals inked yet, two high-powered chefs will be expanding their Las Vegas footprints within the resort sooner than expected. Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner toasted the room and excitedly announced that Gordon Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas outpost, Hell’s Kitchen, will soft open within the week in the former Strip-front Serendipity 3 space. He also noted that Giada De Laurentiis’ fast-casual restaurant, Pronto “will open 30 days after Hell’s Kitchen” in the former Francois Payard room across from Rao’s. It’s certainly shaping up to be a busy year for Caesars.

    Bandito Latin Kitchen serves familiar fare, friendly service bu Heidi Knapp Rinella

    Owners of Mexican restaurants have a particular challenge because their cuisine is so popular. Familiarity builds expectations, and if a favorite dish isn’t on the menu, customers won’t be happy. At the same time, the restaurant has to satisfy those looking for something unexpected.

    Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina opened in early summer in a new building in the Hughes Center on West Flamingo Road. Despite the name, it is essentially a Mexican-American restaurant. It manages to walk the tightrope between the two groups of expectations with an expansive selection of tacos and enchiladas, balanced by some less common Mexican selections, a few dishes from other Latin cultures and specials.

    Zuma serves best baby back ribs in Las Vegas by Heidi Knapp Rinella

    Merely walking into Zuma doesn’t provide much of a hint at the sort of food served there.

    The abundance of natural wood — really gorgeous, minimally milled according to the live-edge sensibility popular now — evokes the Japanese reverence for nature. A few subtle nods to the culture, such as a wall of colored rice-paper panels, offer hints as well. But overall the feeling is pan-cultural sleek and understated, which separates Zuma from many of its contemporary-Japanese brethren.

    Some higher-profile places may be splashier, but Zuma has much in common with them when it comes to food, including a menu that takes into account several sub-genres of Japanese cuisine. Servers and the menu note that there’s a main kitchen and separate ones dedicated to sushi and robata-style cooking, and that dishes will appear at various times from all.

    Two New Nightlife Experiences Head to the Palms by Susan Stappleton

    Two new nightlife ventures coming to the Palms now have an opening date at the resort. Clique Hospitality’s Andy Masi, along with nightlife partners Ryan Labbe and Jason “JRoc” Craig, plan to open Apex Social Club and Camden Cocktail Lounge at the resort in mid-Ma, both part of the $485 million renovation plans there.

    Apex Social Club takes over the former Ghostbar space on the 56th floor, converting 8,000-square-foot room with 180-degree views into an open-air boutique nightclub. Clique plans to add “one-of-a-kind art pieces” for a “sophisticated, upscale vibe.” The cocktail menu includes new concoctions along with age-old favorites and table-side bottle service.

    At the entrance to the resort, Camden Cocktail Lounge takes over the former Social space with over-the-top cocktails. “Bartenders, all of them masters of mixology in their own right, will put their own whimsical spin on beloved classics or create new favorites for guest’s right before their very eyes.” A mix of live music and deejays drives the music.

    Where To Find The Best Fried Chicken in Las Vegas by Susan Stappleton

    Fried chicken and summer go hand-in-hand. Originating in the Middle Ages from Scots, "fritters" were today’s version of fried chicken. Scottish immigrants came to America where they continued the custom of deep frying chicken in fat.

    The perfect fried chicken has a light and crackly crust coating juicy meat underneath, the perfect comfort food. While fried chicken is traditionally made with milk and a flour battered crust, variations on the dish can include using buttermilk, panko breading, different seasonings like sugar and chili, and the way the chicken is fried.

    In Las Vegas, you have two places to try the Bromberg brothers' gold standard of fried chicken, Emeril Lagasse's take, Asian variations and more.

    Here, a look at 19 places that serve up fried chicken all across Las Vegas.

    Meet the New Lunch Coming to the Arts District by Susan Stappleton

    Starting today, the new Italian restaurant in the Arts District starts serving lunch. Now opening Tuesday through Friday at 11 a.m., Esther’s Kitchen features a lunch menu of salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and pastas.

    Owner James Trees promises that “lunch service will be a little different than dinner. In order to provide great food at a good price, and also to service a quality quick lunch for Downtowners, lunch will be ‘fast casual’ style.”

    That means patrons order at the counter, take a number, and servers bring the meal to the table. Take out and curbside orders are also accepted.

    On the horizon, delivery options. And in about six weeks, brunch.

    Below, a look at the entire lunch menu.

    More here:

    After 20 years, world-renowned pasty chef Jean-Philippe Maury no longer has a presence on the Strip. The nine-year old Jean Philippe Patisserie at Aria has already re-branded itself as Aria Patisserie and his original outpost at the Bellagio will soon turn into the Bellagio Patisserie. Both locations are currently hiring ahead of expected new menus.

    Los Angeles chef Roy Choi confirms that he plans to open his first Las Vegas restaurant at the Monte Carlo, soon to become the Park MGM, this fall.

    His yet-to-be named Koreatown-inspired concept plans to have “immersive spaces that feel comfortable and familiar, while creating an eclectic environment for people to open their perceptions to the new and extraordinary.”

    Caesars Palace’s Champagne bar Fizz Las Vegas shuttered at the tail end of last year, a little over four years since the launch of the “elegant and fashionably opulent” lounge.

    As a temporary measure, Caesars has kept the golden hued space alive as the Cocktail Loungeuntil a new tenant revamps the space. The “chic, intimate bar” sits close to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, where Fizz co-creator David Furnish’s husband, Sir Elton John, has regularly performed for the last 13 years.

    The new lounge is open daily, with a menu specializing in “Negronis, Manhattans and Old Fashioneds” plus, wine and champagne “by the bottle or glass. “

    Next up for a big change at the Bellagio — Michael Mina, the seafood restaurant with French influences and Japanese ingredients at the Bellagio. Sometime this year, the restaurant that sits at the rear of the Bellagio Conservatory and Gardens plans to go through a renovation that includes a new menu and a raw bar that opens to the gardens that change six times a year.

    Mina opened his eponymous restaurant in 2010, replacing his eatery Aqua that opened in 1998 at the resort and bringing his namesake treasure from San Francisco to Las Vegas. Tony Chi & Associates designed the room using rare woods and luxe fabrics.

    After more than 25 years, Wolfgang Puck’s Spago in The Forum Shops at Caesars will serve its last meal Jan. 27. Although it will live on after being relocated to Bellagio, the closure marks the end of an era. The 1992 opening is widely credited as a major turning point in Las Vegas’ evolution into a serious food city, and the space has long been a favorite of tourists and locals alike. Its popular patio was featured in the 1995 film ”Showgirls.” While Spago will be closed until the Bellagio location is born sometime this summer in the space formerly occupied by Olives, Puck fans can dine at his Cut at Palazzo, Cucina at The Shops at Crystals, Lupo at Mandalay Bay and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand and in Downtown Summerlin.
