here are exciting an- nouncements here on the Ninth Island. First
of all, the sunset viewing area of the Harry Reid Internation- al Airport, formerly McCar- ran International Airport, has finally reopened. Hours are 9 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week.
As Bally’s continues its transition to Horseshoe, it is slowly adding some really cool attractions.
The Cabinet of Curiosi- ties will provide a cocktail experience like no oth- er. And within, The Lock speakeasy adds to the over- all entertainment — that is, if you can find it and correctly solve the puzzles to gain access. This new hotspot from Imagine Exhi- bitions, which also manag- es Real Bodies and National Geographic’s Rarely Seen Exhibitions (also located in Bally’s), will be on the first level, below the casino. Imagine Exhibitions has also announced the opening of a King Tut exhibition at Luxor Hotel and Casino.
If you’ ve been to Vegas in the past year, you probably noticed the slow progression of the long-awaited MSG Sphere. While construc- tion is coming along and plans to open in the second half of 2023 are on track, there’s another exciting an- nouncement: U2 will be the first band to perform at the unique entertainment venue.
Moving on down the Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas has announced that its speak- easy, Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den, will hold the Tokyo Vice Den pop-up, which will feature award-winning Japanese spirits from House of Suntory. Tokyo Vice Den opens Oct. 1.
The Mob Museum has pur- chased land nearby to ex- pand its exhibitions, as well as add more food and bever- age options.
Bally’s former sports- book, which was in need of a makeover, is getting quite the transformation. It will be replaced by a new arcade scheduled to open in the fall with more than 80 games and a refreshed bar. New restaurant M. Y. Asia by Chef Martin Yan is also on the way, joining the new Jack Binion’s Steak.
The Fremont Street area can anticipate a pedestrian mall in the near future. Con- struction has begun on the $4.5 million project with a tentative opening date of New Year’s Eve and full completion in April 2023.
Speaking of speakeasies,
Finally, another change in the Fremont Street Experi- ence area is the implemen- tation of metal detectors and ID checks at entry points.
