The Roger Thomas Jackpot

Roger Thomas Wynn Design & Development Designer

For those disappointed in how The Steve Wynn Show seems to have jumped a Glenn Beck shaped shark lately, solace can be found in its midseason replacement "Beauty Defined with Roger Thomas".

This month, Roger Thomas - the maestro of interior design responsible for the entire Wynn collection of resorts, past present and future - sat down with our pal Steve Friess to chat about the green room Rog designed for the Oscars. Fortunately for all of us, Steve engaged Roger on a bajillion other subjects spanning the globe from Switch Beach Club coming to Encore in May, to the proposed SW casino in Philadelphia to what we can expect from Encore Macau. As an added bonus, Rog offers his thoughts on ARIA too.

It's a bonafide Roger Thomas jackpot:

I was lucky enough to tour Encore with Roger Thomas before it opened and can sincerely say that he is a brilliant, gentle, thoughtful, warm and wonderful person. A true gentleman with class beyond compare.



Comments & Discussion:

It was frustrating that Roger wouldn't tell us more about Switch and the Beach Club than he did. However, all was forgiven when he talked about Philadelphia. If he and Steve follow through on capturing Phildelphia's history and architecture in the property, it will be a great addition to a fascinating city.

I agree with detroit 1051. I'am a proud Philadeplian and when I saw Steve Wynn @ the state capital pleading his case a smile came over my face that will only get wider once ground breaks.
Thanx for the compliments on my fine city detroit1051.

can someone either post what was said about encore macau, or the mp3 time when they started talking about it?

The Casino business discussion is in the second half of the interview, which starts a little after 57 minutes and the Macau discussion is around 1 hour 14 minutes.
