Peekaboo : The Tropicana Phase III?

Nearly every time I type the name of Tropicana's CEO - Alex Yemenidjian - I'm forced to double check the spelling via Google. This time the search results displayed an interesting photo of Mr. Yemenidjian poring over all sorts of secret documents and renderings with a reporter from Casino Connection Magazine. Wait... what? Secret documents and renderings?

Computer? Zoom in 500%, center, sharpen, crop. Right there. Bingo.

Tropicana

Well would ya look at that. The Tropicana is going to get a full blown night club concert hall, gardens and pool thingy right on the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard. This isn't an old concept that was retired a year ago, this photo was taken barely two months ago.

Shortly after posting this, Mac88888 reminded us that a different angle of this rendering briefly appeared in a Tropicana sales video from 8 or so months ago. Check it:

Verrrrry interesting.

The idea makes sense since they do have all that land to fill up. I liked the new look of the place and if this is added then I will like it even more.

Definitely interesting. I also think it's needed for the property. While I don't think every property needs 3 clubs, one on the premises along with a showroom that's modern is a nice upgrade for a property like this. Very good news.

i ASSURE you...these are old concepts.....and canceled ones at that.

"While I don't think every property needs 3 clubs"

it's not a bad concept actually -
the douches can have their club
there can be a 70s-80s club
there can be a thrid club with salsa and other styles of music

I had alway wanted to stay at the Tropicana. But last year went in there for a bit and was disappointed in what I saw. The idea of staying there flew right out of my head, but after reading the review from earlier and this also has gotten me interested all over again.
