Lucky Dragon Jan 2016

Here's our first 2016 update on the continued construction of The Lucky Dragon hotel & casino. When we last left off, curtain glass was just starting to be clad to the hotel tower and framing of the casino had just begun.

Now, we see that all but the top floor of the hotel tower has been wrapped in red glass. It makes perfect sense that Lucky Dragon, an Asian themed casino targeting Chinese patrons, is wrapped in red glass as red is a lucky color in Chinese culture as is the number 8.

The casino - the two floor steel skeleton in the foreground - now has a complete frame, with the second floor concrete floor completely poured. The roof is now being framed.

Lucky Dragon is operated by former Las Vegas Sands COO William Weidner, and real estate developer Andrew Fonfa. The property is scheduled to open in August 2016 (8/8) and have some of the sexiest Asian-themed hotel rooms in all of Las Vegas.

Lucky Dragon casino is located on the north side of Sahara Avene, just west of The Strip, next door to the Golden Steer Steakhouse and The Worlds Largest Gift Shop.

Big thanks to long time VT reader @dunebug81 for the photo update!


Comments & Discussion:

I hope it does open by August, I would love to check the place out in October. It looks like it would be really awesome. Actually I think this property will put SLS to shame.

I also hope it's open by October
