The New Encore XSplanade

Encore Esplanade

Shortly after receiving a tip about changes afoot in the Encore Esplanade, Wynn VP of Tassels and Drapery Roger Thomas told the Vegas Gang that Wynn was indeed working on a solution to club patrons clogging the Encore Esplanade.

VT tipster JakeZ is back with a slew of photos that show us the stores are closed and boards are up.

The affected areas are marked in red.

Rock & Republic has been closed since the company went bankrupt and its brand mark was bought by retailer Kohl's. This is directly adjacent to the self park garage entry and could function as a "holding tank" for EBC/Surrender or XS guests before they've had a chance to create chaos.

I appreciate this.

This is the former "In Step" store. Since it is directly adjacent to the club, it would make sense that this shop is turned into a queue alcove that will keep the chaos off the thoroughfare.

Further down the hallway, another store ('Shades') is boarded up and covered with a literal curtain wall before the fancy red paint job and mirrors are applied.

When XS is in full swing, that hallway is unbearable for non-club guests. The sheer volume. The crazy coked up bitches screaming and falling off their hooker heels. The sea of cologne/perfume is thick enough to require a respirator.

Comments & Discussion:

this just made me laugh out loud in my quiet-as-a-crypt office:

. The crazy coked up bitches screaming and falling off their hooker heels.

Is there the possibility of another bar being introduced here? I mean, if there's one thing that Encore does well, it's sell booze.

The place is still like douche central and it will probably always be as long as XS and Encore's Beach Club is still there. But until they move out, my business will still belong to the Bellagio.

I've only been in that area once when XS was open, and it was insane. Hopefully, this solution works out well.

And the temporary walls are quite impressive. They look better than some other hotel's regular walls.

Sweet. Encore gets a petting zoo...

Why is Bellagio better than Encore?

Thanks for re-sharing the link to the Roger Thomas interview. Good stuff!

And at the other end of the strip, black plastic covers the work being done at Excalibur's entrance,.... no hooker heels though....
