Gansevoort Sends Out Awkward “Dear John” Letter to Fans
The news came like a swift kick to The Strip’s privates. Caesars Entertainment has severed ties with Gansevoort Hotel Group, and Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon will no longer re-open as Gansevoort Las Vegas after $185 million in renovations.
Gansevoort and Caesars Entertainment have been fairly quiet about this turn of events, but today, Gansevoort Hotel Group sent out an awkward e-mail confirming it has officially broken up with Las Vegas. The e-mail’s subject line: “The End: Gansevoort Las Vegas.”
Interesting time for joke-telling, given the fact this deal fell through because of a Gansevoort partner being tied to Russian organized crime. But, hey, what’s a little underworld connection between friends.
Sorry, Gansevoort, but we’re not signing up for your newsletter. We weren’t all that into you.
The renovation of Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon will continue, and we suspect a new name for the hotel will be announced soon, probably Drai’s, unless there’s a shooting at the current Drai’s nightclub at Bally’s or something. Oh, Las Vegas.
