Golfers can tee off at Topgolf in Las Vegas beginning Thursday

Topgolf Las Vegas, located at 4627 Koval Lane behind the MGM Grand, boasts 108 climate-controlled hitting bays, two pools, cabanas, a concert venue, VIP suites, five bars, special-event spaces, a comfort food-inspired menu with creative beverage offerings, a Callaway Fitting Studio and a Topgolf retail shop. It spans four levels and 105,000 square feet.

At the heart of Topgolf, guests will find interactive golf games in the hitting bays that can host up to six players at one time, featuring lounge-style seating and HDTVs. Golf games can be enjoyed by all ages and skill levels, tracking the accuracy and distance of players’ shots through Topgolf’s microchipped balls.

“When the whole building is full, three-quarters of our guests aren’t playing golf — that’s why it’s such a different entertainment experience,” he said. “In surveys we’ve done, we’ve found that 70 percent of our guests don’t play golf. We try to make golf very approachable and non-intimidating.”

The venue is expected to serve upward of 1 million guests in its first year of operation. More than 850 full- and part-time employees have already been hired. It operates Sunday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. Bay pricing starts at $30 per hour for up to six players and varies depending on bay location and time of day.

General admission is free.

Las Vegas Sands partnership to build 17,500-seat off-Strip concert hall

Some of the top players in the entertainment industry will partner with Las Vegas Sands Corp. to build a 17,500-seat off-Strip venue designed specifically for live music performances.

Sands and The Madison Square Garden Co. said Wednesday they would collaborate with Azoff MSG Entertainment, Live Nation Entertainment Inc. and Oak View Group to build what they call “a first-of-its-kind, large-scale venue that will re-define the live music and entertainment experience.”

The partners said the venue will be the world’s largest built primarily for music. Seating will be shaped like a horseshoe, allowing everyone a direct view of the massive stage. Boxing and mixed martial arts events might be held there, but not team sports such as basketball and hockey.

The 400,000-square-foot facility will be built on an open-air storage lot at Sands Avenue between Koval Lane and Manhattan Street. Officials said construction would begin as soon they get the necessary permits, which is expected to take at least three or four months. Construction would take 18 to 24 months, they said.

The concert hall will emphasize superior acoustics, and state-of-the-art technology will be used throughout the building. Clubs and lounges within the venue are expected to enhance the VIP experience.

Groundbreaking held for new Moulin Rouge Las Vegas

Officials for Moulin Rouge Holdings held a groundbreaking on Tuesday for the new Moulin Rouge Las Vegas.

The project is located at 900 W. Bonanza Road.

The date was chosen since the original Moulin Rouge opened on May 24, 1955, as the only integrated hotel and casino in the United States, officials said in a statement.

The budget for the development is between $100 million and $150 million.

Mark Davis ‘very optimistic’ about Las Vegas

“This is the real deal. If Las Vegas can come through, we’re going to be there. I made a commitment.”

Jerry Jones is a gambling man, and the owner of the Dallas Cowboys sent a speculative message with a more positive tone. When asked if the league’s owners are open to exploring Las Vegas as an NFL city, Jones said, “Simply, yes.”The budget for the development is between $100 million and $150 million.

“I just think the obvious, that Las Vegas is a very attractive place,” Jones said. “It’s one of our nation’s real jewels, it’s an asset, it’s unique, it’s American. And all of that, in my eyes, is what the NFL aspires to be associated with. It’s a great entertainment environment, and I think that far overshadows any issue to do with gambling.

“We had discussions about Vegas. We had no pushback in any kinds of discussions. With the Raiders certainly having the interest that they have and being the iconic team they are, for them to be thinking about going to Las Vegas really fits.”

Old Riviera site pitched for proposed NFL stadium

A top Las Vegas Sands Corp. executive said today that the proposed 65,000-seat football stadium his company is pushing for may end up being built on the Strip.

When plans for the stadium that could house an NFL team were first unveiled, discussions centered on a 42-acre site on Tropicana Avenue owned by UNLV. But Rob Goldstein, Sands’ president and chief operating officer, told tourism leaders today that the Tropicana site appears to be “disappearing as an option.”

Concerns about that site, located near Koval Lane, include its proximity to McCarran International Airport and traffic in the area.

Appearing before the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee, Goldstein today mentioned two possible locations on the Strip: land near SLS Las Vegas and the site of the shuttered Riviera hotel, which is where the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority plans to expand its convention space. The site of Cashman Field in downtown Las Vegas is another option.

Goldstein made it clear that all possibilities remain on the table, and he said the stadium backers aren’t committed to any particular location right now. He called the Riviera location “a great site” but was also receptive to the other opportunities on the Strip and downtown.

I hope they don't destroy the Riviera. Or at least not the neon main entrance. It's a Las Vegas icon. After the Sahara and Stardust, I'm sick of how Las Vegas fails at even an ounce of historic preservation.

Committee hears financing details, timeline for domed stadium that could lure Raiders to Las Vegas

The Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee on Thursday dug into the details of a complex financial proposal to build a $1.4 billion domed stadium that could lure the NFL’s Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas.

The board spent about three hours examining a public-private project that would use $750 million in hotel room tax revenue as the public’s stake in the project. The proposal was presented to the committee by a partnership comprising casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp., Majestic Realty and the Raiders.

Committee members took the information under advisement for further study as they move toward issuing recommendations at meetings in June and July. Those recommendations, due at the end of July, are nonbinding and would be forwarded to Gov. Brian Sandoval for possible consideration by the Nevada Legislature.

Mark Davis says Las Vegas will “unite the Raider nation”

“I’m excited about it,” Davis said in comments televised on NFL Network. “It’s a new market. It’s got the potential to be a really exciting market. . . . The Raider fan in Northern California get upset a little bit when we talk about going to Los Angeles, and the L.A. fans get a little ticked off at the fans in Northern California, so it seems like Las Vegas is a neutral site that everybody’s kind of bought into. It will unite the Raider nation more than divide it.”

Asked if this means he’s given up on staying Oakland, Davis said, “No.”

And then he said this: “I’ve given my commitment to Las Vegas, and if they can come through with what they’re talked about doing, then we’ll go to Las Vegas.”

Davis: Studies on Raiders move to Las Vegas are 'positive'

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis says the team has begun conducting market research studies to gather information about a potential move to Las Vegas.

Davis said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that the initial reports have come back "positive" about the feasibility of such a move. Unable to get a suitable stadium deal in Oakland, Davis wants to move the Raiders to the gambling city.

"I have given my commitment to Las Vegas and if they can get done what they're talking about doing, then we will go to Las Vegas," Davis said.

In April, Davis appeared before a Las Vegas stadium commission to not only pledge to move the Raiders to the city, but put $500 million into a $1.4 billion stadium. Davis gave no timetable for a potential move, saying it is up to the legislative process.

"We'll see how that goes," Davis said.

Monte Carlo casino-hotel rebrands as Park MGM, NoMad

Today’s announcement that the Monte Carlo hotel will be redesigned as two hotels — the Park MGM Grand and NoMad Las Vegas — keeps a promise by MGM Resorts International Chairman and CEO Jim Murren to refrain from naming properties for international tourist destinations.

“We are not going to name it something from somewhere else. Those days are over,” Murren said on April 6, after a ribbon-cutting marking the opening of T-Mobile Arena. “This is Las Vegas; we are at the top of the list of entertainment cities. We are not second to anybody. We’re not going to have a property themed after a city from a far-away place.”

Renovations at the Monte Carlo are set to begin this year and finish by the close of 2018.

The renaming and redesign of the hotel will cost a reported $450 million and create two hotels: the Vegas outpost of Sydell Group's NoMad Hotel and the luxury resort Park MGM. Each hotel will feature renovated and redesigned rooms.

Dream of NHL coming to Las Vegas is nearing reality

When Bettman explained the three scenarios the league was contemplating — expand by one or two teams, wait a year or put expansion on hold indefinitely — he covered both ends of the rink as far as Las Vegas and Quebec City are concerned.

The league’s nine-member executive committee meets this week, likely on Tuesday, though NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly refused to confirm the date. The group is expected to recommend Las Vegas to join the league for the 2017-18 season while deferring Quebec City until 2018-19.

When the NHL’s Board of Governors meets June 22 in Las Vegas, it is expected to rubber stamp the recommendation, culminating in a historic day, as the city will get its first major league sports franchise after decades of campaigning.

Las Vegas's themed resorts are an iconic aspect of the city. The last thing the city wants is to eschew its history just to look 'avant garde' and contemporary.

Las Vegas’ NHL expansion bid reaches critical stage

The long journey to bring a major league sports franchise to Las Vegas reaches a critical stage Tuesday. And if things go as Las Vegas hockey fans hope, a celebration will be planned for June 22.

The NHL’s nine-member executive committee is expected to meet in New York and make a decision on expansion for Las Vegas and Quebec City, the two cities that applied for teams in July. NHL officials would not confirm the Tuesday meeting, but multiple sources with knowledge of the situation say it’s on.

The committee’s recommendations will be put to a vote by the 30 Board of Governors at its meeting in Las Vegas on June 22. Twenty-four votes are needed for approval, and barring something highly unusual, the board will take its cue from the executive committee, which is made up of owners from Boston, Toronto, Chicago, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, Anaheim, Calgary, Washington and Carolina. Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs is the chairman.

The NHL last expanded in 2000 when Columbus and Minnesota joined the league, paying $80 million apiece. The reported price for expansion this time is $500 million per city.

Roger Goodell using his pull to keep Raiders in Oakland

The Raiders’ relocation saga is turning into a tug of war. Owner Mark Davis is pulling the team to Las Vegas. On the other end of the rope, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is exploring ways to keep the team in Oakland.

Goodell, according to a San Francisco Chronicle report, “has been making calls pushing the idea of letting a predominantly African-American investment group, led by former 49ers star Ronnie Lott, help build a new stadium for the Raiders in Oakland.”

In a Friday visit to Las Vegas, Davis repeated his commitment to relocate the franchise if a financing plan for a new domed stadium is approved. While Davis collects support from some of the league’s most powerful owners, it is becoming clear that Goodell could be his toughest opponent.

I agree. I wouldn't necessarily stay at places like the Luxor or New York-New York but i think Vegas has a very unique identity and demolishing all of it for "generic" (albeit extravagant and "jumbo-sized" ) complexes is not a bright idea.

What people are saying about the NHL expanding to Las Vegas

The NHL’s executive committee has recommended that the league expand to Las Vegas, according to The Associated Press.

An expansion team to Las Vegas won’t be official until the league’s owners approve a vote, which will take place in Las Vegas on June 22 prior to the NHL Awards.

A Las Vegas team would be the 31st team in the league, and would begin play in the 2017-2018 season at T-Mobile Arena.

Quebec City in Quebec, Canada, also was considered by the NHL for expansion, but is not expected to receive a franchise.
