A shiny new casino is open in SW Vegas and I wasn't really excited about it. Early reviewers complained about the smoke and lack of smoke-free areas and that it was way too crowded. Of course when you go opening week that could not be the case for long.

On a Friday afternoon the place wasn't too crowded. The first thing I tried to assess was the smoke; while a mild stench was clearly present; it wasn't too bad. Certainly not enough to send be back choking into the parking lot.

You can easily miss the front Desk; it looks more like a concierge stand than a front dest.

There's no Starbucks here; you'll have to settle for Vesta Coffee Brewers. A bit less expensive than Starbucks.

I got a cold brew and it seemed about the same as most other places.

In this little hallway is the BellAir Restaurant, where you'll be greeted by a well-dressed woman.

More of a lounge with snacks than a restaurant

There is more comfortable seating outside than inside, but on a perfect 71 degree day there was nobody sitting outside.

Plenty of slots; something new in Vegas.

One big negative about this place is they don't seem to care about the 80% of people who don't smoke. There are 2 ashtrays at every station and no non-smoking areas in the casino

The ppol is nice, but do you really want to stay here if you come to Las Vegas?

Uncle Paulie's

Uncle Paulie's calls themselves a Deli, but they're more like an Italian Sub shop. I wasn't paying these prices today.

Oyster Bar

People who don't know food head to the Oyster Bar; Las Vegas has turned Cajun fare into bowls of slop for cretins pretending they're eating something good. I've tried the OB at Sunset Station and Orleans and I suspect they're all cut from the same cloth.

There's a shortage of lounges in the place; I don't really see this place as a hangout for non-gamblers. The Oasis Bar is nice, but not much of a hot spot.

Summary and Conclusions

The big crowds reported in the first weeks this place was open were not unexpected and have since subsided. The place is shiny and new and they have some good food choices. But it's not a place I would want to stay for an extended period; there's gambling everywhere in Las Vegas. This is a nice spot if you happen to live nearby.
