Hey you guys , it's Ruby back again with another Las Vegas update but not just any update .
This is what's new in Las Vegas for 2023 .
I'm gonna be covering the entire year for you guys .
A ton of brand new hotel openings , restaurants shows we have so much to cover before I get started if you're new .
Hi , my name is Ruby .
I make Las Vegas content .
If you're planning a trip or you love Las Vegas , go ahead and hit , subscribe .
It's completely free for you to do and it really helps my channel grow .
Thank you so much .
First off , we have some absolutely huge news that just dropped about the hard rock .
You guys , the Hard Rock recently went in front of the Nevada gaming control board and they gave a bunch of details about all of their plans for Mirage .
For those of you who maybe don't know Hard Rock purchased the Mirage in 2021 for $1 billion .
Now , they have just announced that they expect to operate Mirage as is for 18 months .
That is a huge bomb drop because so many people have been worried about will the volcano still be there .
It's here to stay at least through 2023 .
They are expecting to do a huge full overhaul on this property that they are planning to have finished by 2025 .
1st of all , one thing I noticed is they were talking about the ceilings .
Now , the ceilings are low because they have those old school catwalks above .
They're going to be removing all of that gutting it out .
They are actually expanding the casino floor and adding tons of new slots .
You can see from their renderings , how much they're going to add on .
They're going to pull everything to the front .
The huge Guitar tower is going to go out front as well .
They're planning to renovate all of the existing rooms and suites .
They are planning to add new restaurants .
They said at least three , but it could be even more and you can even see , they even said something about an enhanced pool experience .
I don't know what that means , but they even put up like a little chart here that says like how many rooms they currently have , how many they're gonna add the slots they're adding .
So it's going to be a much larger property by the time they're finished , Hard Rock also confirmed that their loyalty club program unity by Hard Rock will be launched at Hard Rock , Las Vegas , but they didn't say when they're switching over the players cards , the animal habitat is going away they will not be having the Dolphin shows or anything like that .
So as for the Beatles Love , they have extended it into 2020 four .
So Beatles is staying for the year and I have also heard that Hard Rock is working with C C to bring a new show to the property .
The renderings look great .
This could be a really fun and exciting new place .
I'm going to try to keep an open mind and I will let you know as news progresses on the hard rock brew dog brewing just opened on strip .
This is brand new .
The location is directly across the street from Park M G M next to the shops by M G M Grand and the space is beautiful .
It is gigantic .
Tons of separate seating areas .
There's a gorgeous rooftop with a unique and really lovely view of Vegas .
They had a huge tap list of beers , but they also had wine and cocktails , which was great because a lot of breweries just do beer .
This place is kid friendly .
It's dog friendly .
We really enjoyed the food here .
We even tried a $150 burger that was really delicious .
I would order it again .
This is just a fun new relaxed hangout spot in Vegas .
I would definitely go check this out if you are coming soon .
They do take reservations if you want to make sure to be up on the patio , some future hotels that we need to talk about .
So we'll start with the Dream .
The Dream Hotel is going to be over by the airport .
This one's going to be a more boutique hotel , so 450 rooms , but they're boasting having seven restaurants , nightlife , a rooftop bar .
So they're trying to bring people over while still keeping it pretty small .
The Majestic Hotel is also set to open .
This one is going to be by the Convention Center and this one looks to be more for working types , non gaming , non smoking , white glove service , very high end .
I think they're kind of trying to go for that more quiet atmosphere for people who really don't like the Vegas hustle and bustle and want something more quiet .
Wildfire is set to open in February downtown .
Now , this one is not walkable from Fremont , although it is on Fremont , it's going to be quite down ways .
And it's important to note this is not going to be a hotel , just a casino .
There are a ton of wildfire casinos all throughout Vegas .
They're local favorites .
I've told some of them can be pretty divey , but this one's going to be brand spanking new , so I'm sure it's going to be nice .
And the Durango Hotel is also set to open .
This one is owned by station casinos .
It's going to be on Durango Boulevard , which is very fitting set to open this year in 2023 .
This one looks like it's going to be one of their higher end properties like Red Rock and we love Red Rock Casino .
So I'm hoping that Durango does not disappoint , excited to see another offri property opening .
We have to talk about all of the construction happening at Plaza .
So Plaza Hotel , one of my favorites downtown is adding so much new to their property .
Currently , they are working on the carousel bar .
This is going to be right at their front and rotate all the way around under those beautiful lights .
It's sent to be able to hold 100 guests .
And I'm told they're hoping early spring once that's done , I think they're going to start working on their other projects .
They are opening a pink box doughnuts .
They're also going to be opening a rooftop patio next to Oscars for some outdoor dining and the influencer friendly BC slots area .
They're going to be opening a really large area in the casino and adding onto to it .
It's going to be entirely non smoking in this area , have its own separate entrance and be very influencer friendly .
I heard Brian himself even said something about having like copyright free music .
He's hand selecting like 100 different slots for this area .
For those of us who play slots .
We do have a slot play channel .
If you're interested , all of this construction is going to be through 2023 .
However , I think once the carousel bar is finished , it'll be a lot less obtrusive with the construction .
We must mention that Tillman Fertitta Hotel .
If you've been following my updates , we've been talking about this a lot .
But for those of you who don't know , Tillman Ferti owns the golden nugget and he is opening a brand new high end casino , right ?
Dead center strip where that Tex Mex Place is and where the travel lodge used to be , it is completely torn down , cannot wait to see another high end beautiful property here and directly next door at the Hawaiian shops , they have closed those all down and the strip has announced that they're going to be putting much more fine dining and shopping here .
So they're really trying to clean up that part of the strip .
It wasn't like the greatest spot .
This is gonna be so nice and add to that area right next to Brew Dog .
So that whole part of the strip is going to be really new and exciting .
Speaking of new and exciting and shopping project 63 question mark because Project 63 was supposed to open this year in fall and fall .
It came and gone and still not open .
I have heard many things about this .
I guess they don't even have all of their vendors set up to go inside .
I do know they are going to have an ocean prime and this is set to open in spring of 2023 .
The renderings for this steak and seafood restaurant look absolutely incredible .
And it's also going to be 14,000 square feet , which is massive .
The Venetian has also announced a huge renovation project , talking , they plan to renovate the casino , the rooms and the pool .
I am excited .
I think it needs it honestly .
So once Venetian has this all done , I cannot wait to go back and try it again and see all these improvements .
But this is gonna be a long time coming .
So all through 2023 we can expect some renovating happening at Venetian and of course not to be left out with our new hotels coming .
We have Fountain Blue .
Fountain Blue has been nearly 20 years in the making .
I mean , in 2005 , they announced the project and it's been stalled ever since , but they claim it is going to be open fourth quarter of 2023 .
I hope so .
Honestly because I'm very excited about this place , 3700 rooms , the renderings look stunning .
There's going to be a nightclub .
I'm sure there's going to be some really high end dining in here .
And I love when we can build up a new part of the strip .
So having this be north would just add more life over there kind of by circus , circus resorts , world Sahara in that area .
When we talk construction in Las Vegas , we must discuss the MS G sphere and how groundbreaking this thing is now the MS G sphere is going to have the largest highest resolution led screen ever made and 164,000 speakers .
They claim that this thing is going to be 100% clearer than the best TV you can buy on the market right now .
Capacity is 20,000 people .
The first ever performance that is announced for MS G sphere is going to be U two .
This is super highly anticipated .
This is a game changer .
I cannot wait to go , not just see a show here , but I can't wait for them to build up that area back there .
Kind of behind the Venetian and the Convention Center Formula One racing is coming to Las Vegas .
They are going to be racing down the strip , November 16th through the 18th .
This is going to be a huge deal for Las Vegas .
The Bellagio is planning to build grandstands right out front for viewing and right now they are selling packages .
I did take a look and a Bellagio three night stay with grandstand seating came to around 2949 dollars just under 3000 .
I think a lot of the hotels and bars and everyone's going to be doing packages and viewing for this .
So stay tuned for more .
I will definitely update you about F one as we learn more .
Two new shows have opened in Las Vegas , Mad Apple at New York , New York .
Kind of uh take on a Spiegel World show .
Very much a variety act with comedy raunchy things , singing , dancing .
It's a good time .
An awakening has opened at the Wind and this one's totally different , think of like an interpretive music video .
There's a beautiful score .
Some incredible technology went into the stage .
The costuming is fantastic .
A lot of dancing .
So both of these shows were great .
I enjoyed both and I recommend them you can get tickets for those .
Now , New York , New York is currently renovating all of their rooms .
We were lucky and got to stay in one of these newly renovated rooms .
You can check that video out and it is fresh and a great new update .
They are planning to have all of the rooms finished by June of 2023 .
So if you're coming late spring into the summer , all of New York , New York will be fresh and renovated .
Aria has some changes as well .
The food hall will be opening inside the aria which is absolutely fantastic because some more dining options in there , some cheaper quicker eats would be much welcome .
And cathedral which I hope I'm saying that right .
It is going to be opening in 2023 right next to catch very little is known about this project only that it is set to open in 2023 .
I will keep you guys updated .
Nelly's kitchen opened at M G M Grand this year .
This is the Jonas Brothers restaurant and it is Southern home cooking based off of their grandmother's eats .
It should be pretty delicious .
You can go check that one out .
Light Night Club has announced they are totally closed at Mandalay Bay so can no longer party there .
Which is unfortunate .
Speaking of M G M , one of the biggest stories this year in 2022 was that M G M properties have acquired the Cosmopolitan .
There's been a ton of speculation on when they're going to switch the identity reward system over to M G M rewards .
And from what we understand , it's going to be sometime at the end of 2023 .
Also at the Cosmopolitan opium has entirely new acts .
It's essentially a brand new show I saw , I absolutely loved it .
So I'm excited to go back and check out all the new performances , moving on to Caesars properties .
So many changes , Caesars is doing so much .
So Bally's they sold and Bays is not going to become the horseshoe already .
Things that have opened inside the ball slash horseshoe would be the poker room which a lot of people are loving lock and key is this little speak easy down on the bottom floor .
They are doing a casino remodel , they ripped out the big sports book and put it in an arcade .
The new one is over by Paris kind of in between that walkway there and the Burger Bracey is closing and they're going to be putting a new guy etti restaurant , but I don't know the name just yet .
Also all read by Blake Sheldon .
The gigantic cowboy bar is going to be opening this year and that is going to be right out front of bay slash Horseshoe .
It will be taking the place of all of those grand bazar shops .
For the most part .
I did hear wh burgers gets to stay , but that could just be a rumor .
We will see .
I hope wh burger stays because they have cheap drinks .
And speaking of Paris right next door , Paris is looking totally different on the inside .
They have added so much Vander PM Paris , a beautiful new restaurant space .
No boo which is just like the No over at Caesars , they have Martha Stewart's Bedford restaurants and Bobby's Burgers .
So even more dining options have been added to Paris Hotel this year .
Harris is seeing some love as well .
They opened , walk on sports bistro , but they are going to be adding a brand new high limit room and in the place of the high limit room , they're going to be adding a new lounge called the lounge .
I love when they add like a little swanky cocktail bar into casinos .
That's a nice touch .
They've also opened Ramsey's kitchen .
Now this is the Gordon Ramsey restaurant and this one is supposed to be based on his travels from around the world .
So some new interesting dishes here .
But you'll still be able to get the Wellington and the Sticky Toffee pudding and all of those favorites .
The link this year saw opening of two Buddy V restaurants , the Boss Cafe , which had delicious moots or mozzarella .
I would definitely check that out .
And Buddy's Jersey eats food truck .
Caesar's Palace itself has undergone huge changes .
The entire front entrance has been remodeled .
They've added a bar , they've opened Dominique Ansel's High end pastries , Stanton Social Prime is set to open next year .
Now , this is also from Tao Hospitality Group , the same group opening cathedral over at Aria .
So interesting that they're going to be opening two different restaurants .
Peter Lugers is also coming to Caesars .
This steakhouse is famous in New York City and it's been really anticipated here .
However , they said that this is not going to be coming until late next year .
Definitely going to be a while before we see this one .
I'm just curious if they're going to maintain the whole cash only thing like they did over in New York .
Also , rumors of another tower being built at Caesars over where the Absinth tent currently is and rumors that they want to build an even bigger sports book .
So we'll see if that comes to fruition and stay tuned .
Earlier this year , Caesars had put Flamingo up for sale and everybody was very concerned about it , but it turns out they weren't able to get the price that they wanted .
So they are keeping the Flamingo and with it , it seems like they're going to be putting some work in the buffet closed permanently there .
And I'm told that they're planning to put some new restaurants inside .
So hopefully going to freshen up Flamingo as well .
They're working on all of their properties right now .
So it would make a lot of sense for them to also fix up Flamingo .
Some other hotels that have opened this year .
The English Hotel opens in the arts district when I saw that this was this year .
I just felt like , wow , 2022 has been incredibly long .
The English Hotel is absolutely gorgeous .
I have a whole video that you guys can watch on this one .
The Palms has also reopened so happy to see the Poems reopened .
It's become one of my favorite off strip spots .
They have Scotch 80 Prime inside Mabel's Barbecue Vetri Cuccia just reopened the Italian restaurants .
I'm going to be talking more about that later on on the channel and it's just a great property to go hit up .
If you are off strip , let's talk about some shows , festivals , concerts , residencies coming .
So Garth Brooks has announced a residency as has Maroon five and we have Taylor Swift coming to Las Vegas .
She is coming in March 24th and 25th .
I have tickets .
I'm not bragging .
My sister got them E DC or the Electric Daisy Carnival will be here , May 19th through the 21st .
This is E D M house music when we were young is coming .
October 21st .
Hopefully this one does not get canceled by wind , but the lineup looks really great again , that emo punk rock kind of thing .
So life is beautiful is coming .
September 22nd through the 24th .
And this is kind of a little bit of everything .
Gorillas , Arctic monkeys , Lord kind of a mix of artists and they all look to be pretty fun .
So this could be a great concert and sick .
New World is coming May 13th .
This is the concert that Mr Ruby really wanted to buy tickets for , but it's sold out .
We are talking hard rock .
So lots of great festivals coming all throughout the year in Las Vegas .
If you are not planning to attend these , be aware that there's going to be an uptick in prices and crowds on those weekends .
I can't believe the changes coming in 2023 Las Vegas is going to be like never before and I can't wait to take you along and keep updating you throughout the year as we go .
If you didn't hear , we did move to Las Vegas to be working full time on this channel .
And thank you to all my subscribers old and new .
Thank you so much for watching this video .
I will catch you guys all in my next one .
