Greg C captures the night-time lights of Lucky Dragon Las Vegas…
Our photographer Greg C has been on the prowl watching the progress over at The Lucky Dragon, scheduled to open December 3rd. I’ll be in town that day, so Greg and I are gonna be taking pics and posting them via the VB twitter and FB page.
Greg C captured this video Saturday night:
And here’s a couple of pics:
As for the appearance of the lit-up Lucky Dragon exterior, in my opinion, it’s…eh…kinda “meh.” If I were driving by the Lucky Dragon and didn’t know what Lucky Dragon is, I would assume it’s a beefed-up restaurant. Watch the video, are those insect legs? Is it supposed to be lightning? I’m not sure what they’re going for, but Greg C and I are assuming (and admittedly, hoping) that the signage and lighting aren’t quite done yet. We’re hoping for a red neon frame.
If you’re out of the loop on the Lucky Dragon thing, no worries. Here’s a refresher on Lucky Dragon (and the world’s longest sentence, ever) from their website:
“Features of the property include a nine-story hotel with 204 rooms, of which 24 are suites; 27,500 square feet of casino space with an emphasis on table games including Baccarat and Pai Gow as well as slots, a high limit gaming area known as the Emerald Room and a luxurious VIP gaming parlor; a pool designed to create an oasis garden escape for hotel guests; a spa with four treatment rooms including reflexology and acupuncture; an indoor-outdoor Tea Garden featuring an extensive list of tea curated by Las Vegas’ only tea sommelier; five Asian-inspired restaurant concepts; and staff and signage to accommodate guests from throughout Asia as well as English-speaking guests.”
Wasn’t that a mouthful? Back in August, I covered the dining options of Lucky Dragon Las Vegas…because, food. You might want to check that out if you plan to be in town and have a hankering for authentic Asian cuisine in a place that has that new casino smell.
If you want to get a little peek of part of the inside, the Las Vegas Sun has this video of the dragon chandelier being constructed.
You can also see a few table games and slots. I would have loved if the cameras panned around, but hey, what can ya do? You can find our previous coverage of Lucky Dragon here.
