New events centre coming to Las Vegas Strip
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The Las Vegas Strip is already home to casinos that mimic the canals of Venice and the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Now Sin City is getting an events centre modeled on an eastern European glass factory.
Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas CEO John Unwin tells The Associated Press the casino is developing a 3,000-capacity theatre that has sat empty since the hotel-casino opened in 2010.
The auditorium is expected to open by the end of the year and will cater to conventioneers, boxing fans or concert-goers.
Unwin says the new events centre will be called the Chelsea and will feature 18-foot ceilings, industrial-inspired light fixtures and a vintage wooden bar.
He says it will recall a theatre set dropped into a glass factory in Czechoslovakia.
