SAHARA Las Vegas officially debuts on the Las Vegas Strip

 

 

SAHARA Las Vegas officially debuts
on the Las Vegas Strip

$150 million transformation of iconic resort continues under new name

 

SAHARA Las Vegas has officially returned to the Las Vegas Strip.

The former SLS Las Vegas will now operate under the resort’s original, iconic brand name – SAHARA Las Vegas. Since Alex Meruelo purchased the property in April of last year, significant strides have been made in transforming the resort experience. Completed renovations within the $150 million resort overhaul include an updated casino floor featuring the stylish 24-hour CASBAR Lounge and the recently unveiled Infinity premium gaming lounge, renovated hotel rooms, suites and corridors, an upgraded spa and a soon-to-debut new hotel lobby. Major updates to the resort exterior continue as remodeling of the main porte cochère began earlier this week while a full renovation of the resort’s main pool is slated for later this fall. Additional updates include a refresh and new paint color for the building’s exterior along with soon-to-be installed marquee signage and lettering signaling the name change.

“The return of SAHARA Las Vegas to The Strip is significant for the city,” said Alex Meruelo, SAHARA Las Vegas owner. “The reimagining of this iconic resort will enable an enhanced guest experience that runs contrary to the megaresorts that have recently dominated the Las Vegas landscape. At SAHARA Las Vegas, guests will be greeted with a warm, customized experience set within a fully modern, dynamic resort. We know guests come to Las Vegas to create memories, and we plan to help them do just that in a beautifully curated, intimate resort experience with personalized services that make everyone feel special.”

Now, nearly a year into the resort’s more than $150 million transformation, guests can expect even further additions and upgrades to the property’s physical structure and guest amenities. Anticipated enhancements to the resort’s award-winning culinary program include the addition of the popular Philadelphia Eagles restaurant partner Chickie’s and Pete’s as well as soon-to-be-announced, new-to-Las Vegas fine dining concepts. Further additions will be made to the property’s entertainment and nightlife lineup. Announcements regarding these changes will be made in the coming months.

Hotel
Debuting this fall, the new hotel lobby will offer top-tier guest amenities featuring state-of-the-art hotel registration systems and a well-appointed lounge. The exquisite modern design, with just a touch of nostalgia, includes floor inlays inspired by lamps from the original Sahara Hotel and Casino. A Starbucks will also open near registration this fall offering guests an assortment of specialty coffees and pastries.
Additional hotel enhancements include the redesign of the Blanca and Marra towers, which offer guests fully remodeled rooms as well as updated elevator lobbies and room corridors. Upgrades to the AAA Four Diamond Alexandria Tower include room enhancements and new services at the Amina Spa. The Alexandria Tower also offers a private valet entrance and dedicated hotel check-in.

Casino
The 60,000 square-foot casino floor received a remodeled design creating a bright, modern atmosphere with glamorous touches, a finished ceiling with upgraded lighting and new carpeting along with a new slot and table game layout. The addition of the stylish, 24-hour CASBAR lounge offers guests a selection of craft cocktails and inviting seating areas right off the casino floor, while Infinity, a sophisticated premium gaming lounge, appeals to the resort’s more serious gamers seeking a luxurious high-limit gaming experience. A new poker room, off the main casino floor, is expected to open later next year.

Pool & Nightclub
Following the end of the summer season, the main resort pool will close this fall. Nothing will be left untouched as the entire pool deck will receive a complete overhaul to create a new and compelling pool experience. The year-long project will also include the addition of a two-story 18,500 square-foot combination nightclub, lounge and theatrical space which will sit adjacent to the main pool.

“We could not be more excited to begin operating as SAHARA Las Vegas,” said Paul Hobson, senior vice president and general manager of SAHARA Las Vegas. “We have been busy making changes to enhance the guest experience and create a resort that our guests and team members can all enjoy. It feels good to debut our efforts under a name that is beloved by so many.”

These changes and more are encapsulated in a series of renovations to the boutique Strip resort that will continue well into 2020. SAHARA Las Vegas features 1,615 guest rooms, more than 95,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and a collection of entertainment venues, lounges, three distinctive pools, the luxurious Amina Spa and acclaimed restaurants, including the award-winning BAZAAR Meat by José Andrés.

UNLV ATHLETICS NEWS: Football Season Ticket Pricing Set For 2020 At Allegiant Stadium

UNLV SETS TICKET PRICING FOR 2020 AT ALLEGIANT STADIUM

UNLV Athletics partnered with world-renowned pricing expert from UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hospitality to set football season ticket prices in new $1.9 billion state-of-the-art stadium

 
UNLV Athletics has announced pricing of new 2020 season tickets for Rebel football games at Allegiant Stadium. 


Pricing for 2020 in the new $1.9 billion state-of-the-art stadium was based on surveys of the local market tracking gameday experience, ticket costs, concessions, parking and tailgating. The survey was sent to football event purchasers as well as UNLV alumni with an athletics affinity, located in the Las Vegas area. The results provided UNLV Athletics’ leadership with a better understanding of what the community values.

“This second wave of surveys allowed us to continue gathering information as we identify our place in the most competitive entertainment market in the world and strive towards one of our top priorities which is providing the best fan experience in the Mountain West Conference,” UNLV Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said. “As has been our goal throughout this process, we want to be thoughtful and strategic in our transition into the new stadium. Our pricing model provides the Las Vegas community with affordable access to our new $1.9 billion home for Rebel football.”

To design the surveys, UNLV Athletics partnered and collaborated with Stowe Shoemaker, Dean of UNLV’s world-renowned William F. Harrah College of Hospitality. Dean Shoemaker has worked on pricing models for numerous Fortune 500 companies and is considered an expert in the space.

“Understanding the customer experience is absolutely essential to developing a pricing strategy that works,” said Shoemaker, “That’s what our college does best. Through rigorous research, we can help identify a model that provides fans with a great experience at a fair price.”

“Having someone as respected as Dean Shoemaker right here on campus is one of the advantages of being located in a city like Las Vegas and at a university like UNLV,” Reed-Francois added. “Stowe is a staple in this community and volunteered his services because he understands what this transition means not just for our athletics department, but for the entire university. This is a great next step in providing a transformational experience in Allegiant Stadium for our community.”

Fans looking to purchase season tickets in 2020 can save up to $250 per season ticket by taking advantage of the “Faithful Fan Pricing” and purchasing 2019 football season tickets. For more information on purchasing tickets and the savings, please call 702.739.FANS or visit UNLVtickets.com.

Once Upon An Escape Opens in August, 2019

Once Upon An Escape Opens in August, 2019
60-Minute Themed Escape Rooms Based on Favorite Fairytales: Neverland, Once Upon A Time, Rumplestiltskin, 7 Dwarfs & Arabian Nights

 

Once Upon an Escape, an immersive, enchanting experience, announces the grand opening of its fairytale-themed escape rooms this August. Players have 60 minutes to decipher clues, solve riddles and escape before the clock runs out in four adventurous rooms:  Neverland, Once Upon A Time, 7 Dwarfs & Arabian Nights, plus a five-minute power room, Rumplestiltskin. 

Aimed for adult fun, the rooms are age appropriate for ages 14+ (children are welcome with adult supervision) and ideal for both beginner and skilled escape enthusiasts.  The physically and mentally challenging rooms “lock” guests in a heavily themed room and the guests will use elements of the room to complete specified tasks within a set time limit.

The escape rooms were designed, built and are owned by the newlywed couple, often referred to as the “Charming Family,” Justice Carey and Kendra Daniels, reigning Miss Fabulous Las Vegas and popular Las Vegas vocalist. 

“I have always loved fairytales, and my husband and I are escape-room enthusiasts, so it is exciting to pair the two, and see our project come to life!” says Kendra Daniels, founder of Once Upon an Escape.   “My family and I are excited to introduce this fairytale-themed escape room experience to the community!”
 

The family affair includes daughter and sister, Brooke and Keira, who have also been assisting with the final magical artistic touches, along with Kendra’s mom, Kim Tuck, in the role of General Manager. “I am looking forward to welcoming our guests each day and offering them an enchanting experience,” says Tuck. 

Once Upon an Escape will offer supportive events for people with special needs, allowing families to bring their loved ones to enjoy the escape rooms in a comfortable, welcoming environment. The company mission is to donate a portion of the escape room proceeds to selected charities. Giving back to the community was inspired by Justice’s brother-in-law, Xander, age17, who is on the autism spectrum, and will be working alongside his mom and general manager, Kim Tuck.

Each private room is suitable for 2-6 players, is priced at $37/person, and features discounts for locals and military.   In addition to the adventurous rooms, Rumplestiltskin is a power room in which you have 5 minutes, 5 clues and is only $5 per person. 

Once Upon an Escape is also a fun, creative way to integrate corporate team building, as it enhances problem-solving skills, increases communication, and motivates team members.  Escape rooms can help foster respectful dialogue, a creative exchange of ideas, and encourage active listening.  

The five themed fairy tale escape rooms include:

Neverland: With a dash of pixie dust, soar through the London sky! Sneak up on Captain Hook’s ship and venture into the seemingly enchanting world of Neverland. But once there, you’ll need to save Wendy from the Lost Boys’ unruly grip! The clock is ticking. Outwit the crocodile and make your escape from the place where you never have to grow up!
Once Upon a Time: It seems as though Rumplestiltskin has stolen the fairytale artifacts. You must recover the artifacts and place them on the correct pedestals-if you are to escape the room in time. But beware-things are not always as they appear!
7 Dwarfs: The fairest one is in dire need! You must help the Seven Dwarfs undo the evil and bring back to life the fairest in the land! But be quick, before she’s gone forever!
Arabian Nights: In a far-off land, buried deep within a cave, lies a magic lamp capable of granting your every desire. But be warned! Once you have entered, attempting to leave without the lamp will result in your demise! Do you have what it takes to follow in the footsteps of the King of Thieves? Find the magic lamp and make your escape in time!
Rumplestiltskin: Five Dollars-Five Minutes-Five Clues! Can you handle the POWER Room? Rumplestiltskin is his name. The mystery at hand is his game. Solve the clues within for your enchanted life to begin! Will you escape in time or end up entrapped by his rhyme?

Once Upon an Escape is located centrally in Las Vegas at 5067 Arville Street, Las Vegas, NV 89118.  For more information, visit the website at: http://www.onceuponanescape.com  and email at onceuponanescape@hotmail.com.

LYNYRD SKYNYRD RESCHEDULES LAS VEGAS DATE FOR LAST OF THE STREET SURVIVORS FAREWELL TOUR

LYNYRD SKYNYRD RESCHEDULES LAS VEGAS DATE FOR
LAST OF THE STREET SURVIVORS FAREWELL TOUR
 
Show Scheduled for Friday, August 16 at T-Mobile Arena 
Has Been Rescheduled for Friday, October 18 as 
Original Band Member Gary Rossington Recovers from Heart Surgery

 

Due to illness, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour Las Vegas date, scheduled for Friday, Aug. 16 at T-Mobile Arena, has been rescheduled for Friday, Oct. 18. Bad Company will remain as special guest co-headliner for the rescheduled date. Tickets purchased for the original August 16 date will be honored for the rescheduled October 18 date.

 

Guitarist and original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gary Rossington, has been experiencing fatigue and other symptoms related to a leaky heart valve. Rossington underwent a procedure on July 31 to repair the valve. To allow him proper time to recover, the band must reschedule the upcoming tour dates. Rossington is expected to make a full recovery.

 

“We all appreciate the well wishes for Gary and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused,” said Johnny Van Zant, the band’s lead vocalist. “But he can’t wait to come back and perform at 100% for the fans. We will see you all soon!” 

 

Last year, the Southern Rock icons announced that after a career that has spanned more than 40 years and includes a catalog of more than 60 albums with more than 30 million units sold, they would embark on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the career-concluding farewell tour logged over 50 stops by the end of 2018 and has continued throughout 2019 taking the band across the country and around the globe giving fans one last unforgettable night of classic American Rock-and-Roll. 
 

 

The Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour marks a big moment for generations of fans, as Lynyrd Skynyrd has been touring consistently since the 90s. The band, that USA Today called the “whiskey-soaked genre’s most popular and influential crew,” is ready to rock one last time. The farewell tour will take original member Rossington joined by Van Zant, Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington, Carol Chase and special guest Jim Horn across the country over the next year. 

 

The legendary rockers are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified “Sweet Home Alabama” and self-proclaimed signature song, “Free Bird,” that Rolling Stone said was “easily the most requested live song in existence.” With everlasting hits such as “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “You Got that Right,” and more, it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time.

About Lynyrd Skynyrd
Original members Ronnie Van Zant, Bob Burns, Allen Collins, Gary Rossington, and Larry Junstrom formed the band in 1964, originally known as My Backyard, the band changed to its famous name in the early 1970s, and became popular in the Jacksonville, FL area, where the original members were from. They signed with Sounds of the South Records in 1972, and released their self-titled disc the following year. The album that featured “Free Bird,” arguably the most-recognized single in the Southern Rock genre, has sold more than 2 million units since its release. Later down the road the band recorded iconic tracks “Sweet Home Alabama” and “What’s Your Name.”

 

The band’s story took a tragic turn in October 1977 when a plane crash took the lives of Van Zant, Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines, and several of their road crew. The band took a decade-long hiatus before reuniting for a tour and live album, Southern by the Grace of God. Since then, the band has toured and recorded extensively, with their most recent release being Last Of A Dyin’ Breed. The band’s current line-up includes original member Rossington, Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Nostalgic night at The Pearl with two major headliners – Blondie and Elvis Costello & the Imposters

Last night it was a packed house at The Pearl at Palms Casino Resort with a co-headlining show featuring Elvis Costello & The Imposters and Blondie. The groups, who are out this summer together, nicknamed the tour: It’s Blondie & The Beastly E.C.!!!

The night started off with the queen of cool – Debbie Harry leading an energetic set for Blondie. “HELLO VEGAS!” she exclaimed before launching into mega-hit “Hanging on the Telephone.” The band performed some of their most notable songs including “Rapture,” “Dreaming” and “One Way Or Another.”

 

Another level of cool took over the intimate venue when Elvis Costello & The Imposters hit the stage to close out the show. “Have you got any money left?” Costello jokingly asked as he hit the stage. Opening with “Pump It Up” got the crowd on their feet and “the Beastly E.C.” went on to perform hits “Alison,” “Everyday I Write the Book” and “Accidents” amongst others.

UNLV MEN’S BASKETBALL NEWS: Donnie Tillman Chooses Runnin’ Rebels

DONNIE TILLMAN CHOOSES RUNNIN’ REBELS

Pac-12’s Sixth Man of the Year will transfer to UNLV from Utah
The UNLV men’s basketball program has received a signed commitment from Donnie Tillman, head coach T.J. Otzelberger announced Monday.

 

Tillman is a transfer from Utah, where he played as a freshman in 2017-18 and a sophomore in 2018-19. He will enroll at UNLV this fall.

 

The sixth commitment at UNLV under Otzelberger, Tillman, a 6-foot-7-inch 225-pound forward, earned the 2018-19 Pac-12 Conference’s Sixth Man of the Year Award. 

 

“Donnie is a proven, versatile wing who will immediately impact our program,” Otzelberger said. “An elite rebounder, he also has the ability to push the break and excel in transition. He is able to facilitate plays for himself as well as his teammates and his skill level while playing multiple positions offensively and defensively will make him a valuable weapon in the Mountain West.”

 

Starting 15 of his 31 games played last season for the Utes, he ranked third on the team in scoring with 10.5 points per game. He shot 43.9 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from 3-point range and 78.6 percent from the free-throw line. He was second on the team with 163 total rebounds (5.3 rpg) and he registered 18 double-digit scoring games, including a career-high 22 points at Arizona State. 

 

As a freshman, Tillman played in 28 games, averaging 20.3 minutes per contest and he ranked fifth on the team in scoring with 7.8 ppg. Utah finished third in the Pac-12 in both of Tillman’s seasons as a Ute.

 

Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Tillman played three seasons at Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada, where he averaged 14.3 ppg, 8.0 rpg and shot 65 percent from the field as a senior. A four-star recruit by ESPN.com, he helped guide Findlay to a 33-4 record and an appearance in the national tournament’s semifinals.

 

He joins Jonah Antonio, David Jenkins Jr., Elijah Mitrou-Long, Vitaliy Shibel and Moses Wood as part of the Runnin’ Rebels’ 2019 recruiting class.

UNLV ATHLETICS AND RED BULL PARTNER TO ENHANCE RUNNIN’ REBEL BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE

UNLV ATHLETICS AND RED BULL PARTNER TO ENHANCE RUNNIN’ REBEL BASKETBALL EXPERIENCE

Collaboration to energize the Thomas & Mack Center Courtside Club and student-athlete excellence

RebelAthleticFund.com  |  UNLVTickets  |  @UNLVAthletics  |  @TheRunninRebels


Known globally for supporting championship performance with elite athletes, Red Bull has partnered with UNLV Athletics to energize the premium experience at the Thomas & Mack Center during Runnin’ Rebel games.

Set to open when the UNLV men’s basketball team takes the floor in November, the innovative Courtside Club will provide unprecedented VIP services to members of UNLV’s Loyalty Circle – the athletics department’s prestigious donor society.

The Courtside Club will feature food, beverage and high-end hospitality all game long, just steps away from Tarkanian Court. Support from Red Bull will support the design and development of the club, which is the first of its kind for Runnin’ Rebel Basketball.

“We are proud to partner with UNLV Athletics to energize the premium experience within the Thomas & Mack Center,” said Red Bull Las Vegas Regional Manager Lou D’Andrea, “It’s equally exciting to be part of a new championship era for Runnin’ Rebel Basketball with Coach Otzelberger. Building our involvement with NCAA Division I sports and, in particular, basketball, is a core priority for the company. This opportunity aligns directly with where we are heading both regionally and nationally.”

The Courtside Club builds on the athletics department’s commitment to expanding premium services to those providing essential scholarship and strategic support through the Loyalty Circle program.

“We are so grateful for Red Bull’s support as we launch this new partnership,” Director of Athletics Desiree Reed-Francois said. “The Loyalty Circle and the support it generates allows us to provide scholarships and services essential to student-athlete excellence. The collaboration with Red Bull will personify our mission as we team to develop our student-athletes into leaders for our university and community.”

In addition to assisting with the establishment of the Courtside Club, the partnership with Red Bull will involve career development opportunities for UNLV student-athletes.


As Red Bull continues its global growth, its need for qualified, talented employees is escalating. This partnership is timely and strategic for both parties.

“We are thrilled about expanding engagement with UNLV Athletics and creating a pathway between UNLV’s campus and our company,” D’Andrea said.

The Runnin’ Rebels open the 2019-20 campaign against Purdue Fort Wayne on November 5. The Courtside Club will debut that evening. For information on the Loyalty Circle and how to become a member, please visit RebelAthleticFund.com or call 702-895-4486.
