Jan 14th 2011 1:15PM I wholeheartedly agree with the need for an upscale casino presence at Lake Las Vegas.
I have frequented the facilities a number of times and thought that the atmosphere lacked entertainment and more upgraded services to match the ambiance of the Village and the Lake Las Vegas experience.
Dolce might benefit from a co-venture with an existing Las Vegas operator to set up a Casino with expanded facilities for poker tournaments and entertainment. An existing casino operator could set up for business quickly and be able to channel customers to LLV on a selective basis. Not everyone enjoys the pace on the strip and the downtown properties couldn’t duplicate the atmosphere at the lake for a billion dollars.
That targeted clientele would be a cash cow for both Dolce and any casino operator. Seems like a home run to me.
Any additional ideas or suggestions?
