The D Doubles Down
As many of you know, The D (formerly the shit hole known as Fitzgeralds) will be holding its "grand reopening" party on the same day as we hold the Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic. The D's owner and head honcho Derek Stevens will be joining the Vegas Gang Podcast at VIMFP to talk D with us just hours before the big party.
In preparation of the grand reopening, they've been going bonkers finishing up renovations of the casino floor, public areas and the exterior of the joint.
Two months ago, they were still dismantling and removing the Fitzgerald's logo/rainbow remnants.
Now, all that has been removed and a new "D" logo has been framed on the property's bulkhead entry. They've also removed a ton of the 1980's looking exterior flourishes and have double downed on some of the more art-deco inspired design flourishes.
They've also built an exterior escalator to get up to the Vue Bar, or whatever it is they're calling it now.
The interior of the casino has also undergone a dramatic transformation. For starters, the joint is clean. Gone are the cranky dealer crews, replaced with energized, happy, clean and personable staff. All of the casino felts, tables, chairs and chips and uniforms have been replaced and rebranded with new D logos and persona.
The new chips... peeking at the detail reveals an inlay that speaks to the "bolts and blackjack" story of owner Derek Stevens, or he is a fan of the Jetsons' Spacely Sprockets
The bullet hole carpet is very gangster. I think i'm beginning to see the theme here... whereas the Golden Gate is being marketed as a 1920's flappers joint, The D will be its neighboring Prohibition-era speakeasy... gangsters and tommy guns, feds and fedoras, the perfect theme to fit the late 20's & 30's boom of art deco design and architecture.

The casino floor has been given a complete, simple renovation. New rippling brown glass tiles line the ceiling, complimenting the sharp, modern look of the red, black, maroon and gray interior hues. This place looks and feels great and fits in perfectly with the new look of downtown as typified by the on going upgrades at Golden Nugget and the total renovation of The Plaza.
The D, call me a believer.
