Ehh nope. It's actually reverse. Las Vegas is the only city in the USA where you are allowed to drink on the streets. In most European countries you are only allowed to drink inside. At least in Holland.

It depends what beach. There are probably special beaches for the ones who are interested. And the racism is not only in the USA.

We are talking about Las Vegas - Dubai. The freedom of speech is definitely guaranteed in the USA.

Thank you for your opinion. Let's stick to the CITYCENTER PROJECT . I don't want to see any off topic discussions in this thread anymore. Otherwise I'm seriously going to delete posts, warning people etc. It doesn't have to be like that.

It is also legal in New Orleans and much more prevalent there than in Vegas.

I don't get the comparsion of Dubai to Vegas. While they both have the wealth of hotels, shops, and restaurants (aimed a upscale market), they're very different places and environments.

Any shots of the Vegas strip skyline with CityCenter? I know a lot of people hate it, but I do like it. It adds something to the Strip. If you start seeing a lot of new glass, highrise builings in future projects, I would not like it.

I hope mdieri did. I can't find any interior pictures on the internet. What I did find were some (for me) unknown renders of the project which look really awesome.

My friend and I did a walk through on the perimeter of the area and I can say even without seeing the inside of the structures, City Center is going to bring more visitors to Vegas, repeat and first time visitors. The complex of buildings were amazing and the public art installations some of which can be seen from the outside are beautiful.

I deleted your post because apparently you can't resist to reply on this spammer who is brigged for 3 days. If you want the same treatment I suggest you should go on.

I said at least 3 times that the offtopic issues had to stop.

The interior is nice, but nothing that "wows" me.

It doesn't look bad. It's just not like Armani.

btw: is the whole project topped out yet?

I'm interior designer and I have very high exceptions for big projects like City Center to have impressive interior designs. These interior designs are kinda outdated.

Ok. You see it as an interior designer. People who are not interior designers and don't know that much about interior designs have different views.

Armani? (do they do interiors?)

The interiors are nice of the first hotel and snaps of The Crystals and I think they have that "it be nicer over time" impact, but I don't get the "wow" factor.

I'm interested to see the Mandarin Oriental design however.
