Caesars Entertainment Corporation has announced a collaboration with New York-based luxury hotel brand Gansevoort Hotel Group and nightlife impresario Victor Drai. The partners plan to launch an intimate urban resort at the location of Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. At the heart of the Strip on the prime corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Flamingo Road, Gansevoort Las Vegas is planned to open in early 2014. The property will also be located next to the new LINQ entertainment complex.
As the only standalone boutique resort, perfectly situated at the center of the Strip, Gansevoort Las Vegas will feature a boutique hotel experience offering VIP treatment and unique social experiences.
Gansevoort Las Vegas will be the fourth installment of the luxury hospitality brand following the recent success of Gansevoort Park Avenue in New York. Following a $185 million renovation, Gansevoort’s iconic style will reimagine the current space, creating an intimate property among the Strip’s towering skyscrapers. Gansevoort Las Vegas will feature 188 Parisian apartment-style guestrooms, including 19 suites, designed by Tandem Las Vegas. An intimate lobby space will welcome guests upon arrival, with a redesigned lobby bar, an ultra-lounge, retail outlets and a 40,000-square-foot casino. A destination restaurant overlooking the Strip will round out the guest experience.
“We are confident that the Gansevoort Las Vegas will be unlike anything that exists in Las Vegas today,” said Michael Achenbaum, founder and president, Gansevoort Hotel Group.
Gansevoort Las Vegas will also feature another first for Las Vegas – the creation of Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub, Victor Drai’s reinvention of Las Vegas nightlife featuring a 65,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor nightclub and rooftop pool experience. Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub will feature panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. The legendary After Hours by Drai will also return in the same location with its discrete underground and intimate vibe, offering its dedicated club-goers an all new experience.
“Gansevoort Las Vegas will be a completely unique upscale lifestyle experience in Las Vegas,” said Tariq Shaukat, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Caesars Entertainment. “It will set a new standard of fun and modern luxury which only Gansevoort Hotel Group, Victor Drai and Caesars Entertainment can create. We are confident that Gansevoort Las Vegas will be one of the most exciting destinations in Las Vegas when it opens in 2014.”
Gansevoort Las Vegas, combined with the nearby open-air retail, dining and entertainment complex The LINQ, opening in late 2013, will transform the heart of the Strip into the heart of Las Vegas entertainment. The renovated resort is anticipating employing more than 1,000 people.
