A $300 million resort from the Dream Hotel Group has been announced for the far south end of the Strip.
Plans call for a 21-story, 450-room hotel-casino with multiple restaurants, a rooftop bar, meeting space, spa and an undisclosed nightlife component.
The developers are banking on the resort’s proximity to the new Allegiant Stadium, noting that guests will be able to walk to Raiders games. Construction on Dream Las Vegas is scheduled to begin next year, with the resort opening in 2023.
Sphere costs more: The price tag for the 17,000-seat MSG Sphere, being built behind the Venetian, was announced last year at $1.2 billion — that number has now been increased to $1.66 billion. By comparison, T-Mobile Arena, with 1,000 more seats, cost $350 million. The Sphere is scheduled to debut in 2022.
Brunch costs more: The price of the lavish Sterling Brunch at Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino has been raised by $20. Already the most expensive buffet in town before the increase, the Sunday-only brunch that features lobster, caviar and high-end Champagne is now $125 per person.
Wanders wandering: True to their name, The Bronx Wanderers are on the move again, relocating from The Linq to Harrah’s. The show opened three years ago in Bally’s Windows Showroom, then spent a year at The Linq.
Best brew: The Belgian tripel (9.4% alcohol) from Las Vegas’ Big Dog’s Brewing Co. made Thrillist’s tally of the best beers in every state. Two other Nevada entries came from breweries in Sparks in the Reno area.
Question: I know about the Circa Resort & Casino tower going up downtown. What’s the second tower farther east?
Answer: It’s the new 495-room hotel tower at the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino. The seven-floor tower is the resort’s third and adds a mix of standard rooms and suites to bring the DG’s total room count to 1,194.
