Wynn Poker Room To Move In December

Sources are confirming to us that The Wynn Poker room will be closing and moving to the former Society Cafe Encore space in December 2015. The big Encore/Wynn switcheroo is happening folks.

Additionally, we've learned that a portion of the casino pit between Society Cafe and Andrea's is being earmarked for "something new."

Hrmmm.... what do poker players like? Wet naps? Pizza? Coffee? Prostitutes?

I'll see if I can get pictures in a few weeks.

That shot of the old atrium makes me sad. Can't believe it was only like that a year.

That photo makes me miss the original porte cochere and atrium :/

I go with smoking hookers being stationed here. This looks so nice and i can't believe they are going to screw with it.

I just got home from my most recent trip (report soon) and spent a bit of time at Encore.

The "something new" is definitely underway as the curtains went up Monday. By the time I left Tuesday afternoon they already had some walls built, drywalled, and were plastering. I am not sure if the walls were permanent, but I suspect they were as the studs went all the way to the ceiling.

Steve was being shown around the floor near the walkway to Wynn and was discussing some rearrangement. I wasn't actively trying to eavesdrop but it did seem that they were discussing taking space away from the slot department and installing some sort of "tables for the tournament" in the area immediately upon entering from Wynn. There was much talk that the slot manager would be none too happy with the changes. The only other thing of note I heard was Mr. Wynn saying "that whole Ferarri thing." I have no idea what context that was said in because that was all I heard.

They also had a pit closed with signs up about filming for "The House." I don't know what that is.

@yo juicy. did you take any pictures of the framing?
