Casinos begin courting millenials

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Tourists navigate a maze of signs that once adorned Las Vegas casinos and business at the Neon Boneyard and Museum in Las Vegas. The museum will be expanding, thanks to a $425,000 grant.

Slowly but surely, Las Vegas casinos are making moves to attract young adults to areas outside of the nightclubs.

On the Strip, MGM Grand and Hakkasan Group have teamed up to create the city’s latest “gaming lounge,” which merges traditional gambling with pool, foosball and arcade games. There’s also be a bar area with craft beers and specialty cocktails.

Downtown, the Commissary restaurant at Downtown Grand has been converted into an eSports lounge, and the Neonopolis complex is preparing to open a new e-sports arena designed to host video game tournaments. Expect more along these lines in the near future.

Neon Museum: The Neon Museum, which displays hundreds of retired resort signs and former landmarks, is expanding thanks to a $425,000 grant from the city of Las Vegas. The museum at 770 Las Vegas Blvd. N. has purchased an adjacent parcel of land that will provide space for 30 more signs to be displayed.

Bellagio Starbucks: What do you add to the casino that has everything? A Starbucks, of course. The Bellagio didn’t quite have everything, but with the opening of a new Starbucks, maybe it does now. Hours are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Wedding Bell: The new Taco Bell Cantina on the Strip is adding weddings to its menu. Beginning this summer, the restaurant will offer a $600 Taco Bell-themed wedding package that comes with a 12-pack of tacos and a Cinnabon Delights wedding cake for the reception.

Tea Tuesdays: Lucky Dragon has initiated “Tea Tuesdays,” featuring 50 percent off exotic teas in Cha Garden, near registration. The promotion runs from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Question: Is there a line on the possible Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor fight?

Answer: Even though the fight’s not set, the Westgate SuperBook has put up a betting line that makes boxing’s Mayweather a huge -2,500 favorite (25-1) over mixed martial arts’ McGregor. As of now it’s more a conversation piece than anything else, as the casino reports no bets have been taken on either side yet.
