Fontainebleau Las Vegas grand opening date possibly leaked

While Fontainebleau Las Vegas Hotel-Casino has kept its grand opening date under wraps, a recent report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal hints at a potential unveiling of the new gambling-friendly venue on December 13, 2023. Citing a ‘credible’ source, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that famous singer Justin Timberlake is slated to host an exclusive VIP-only performance at the venue on the aforementioned date ahead of its grand opening for the public later that evening.

The towering 67-storey building, which claims the title of Nevada's tallest structure, is set to become the first new gambling-friendly venue to grace the renowned Las Vegas Strip (LVS) since Resorts World's grand opening in June 2021. It is all set to offer an impressive array of amenities, including well-furnished 3,644 luxurious hotel rooms and a spacious half-million-square-foot expanse dedicated to large conventions and meetings. The primary exhibition room, spanning 105,200 square feet, is said to be the crown jewel of its event spaces.

The new casino resort is proudly standing on the patch of land that was formerly occupied by the El Rancho Hotel & Casino. Initially, the Fontainebleau project was unveiled around two decades ago, in May 2005, with an anticipated launch in 2008. However, the tumultuous economic challenges created by the Great Recession and the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted those plans.

Around a couple of years ago, the towering blue structure found new ownership under the umbrella of real estate investment arm of Koch Industries. However, the purchase price was kept undisclosed. The real estate investment arm of Koch Industries carried out the acquisition in partnership with Miami real estate developer Jeffrey Soffer-owned Fontainebleau Development.

Meanwhile, Fontainebleau Las Vegas is on the hunt for a large workforce, with plans to hire approximately 6,500 new employees, encompassing areas like food, beverage, and nightlife roles.

The Fontainebleau is a vertically integrated casino resort, akin to the Cosmopolitan. The ground floor of the tall building will serve as a hub for gaming enthusiasts, while the second and third floors will be dedicated to retail and dining experiences.

The grand design of the casino is indeed impressive, encompassing an expansive 150,000 square-foot space, which will offer nearly 1,300 slot machines, versatile equipment catering to video poker, keno, and blackjack aficionados, and a diverse selection of 127 table games. Collectively, these elements converge to shape a fascinating gaming and entertainment destination.
