Will be in Vegas Sept. 26. Staying at Bally's. Is the Grand Bazzar Completed?? Opinions please.
My wife and i were just there - we were not impressed shops were very very small most of them had little to nothing in them. i would describe them as small cubicles with advertising
More like Bally's Grand Bizarre. You wonder what Gary Loveman was thinking when he signed off on it. Oh, wait. He was thinking only of himself, his bonus, the bonuses his executives were going to get and how much money he could screw the shareholders out of before bankruptcy. So why not blow several dozen million on a worthless project like this? A totally bizarre, out of place, tacky waste of effort and money. Absolutely what I expected out of CET.
The always broken down walkway, dirty fountains filled with beggars diving for nickels could have been turned into something bright, vibrant. Perhaps like the park they are building around NYNY/MC for the arena yet CET decided to fill emulate it with more Hawaiian Marketplace bead shops that will close as soon as their leases expire. Most of those store fronts will never open.
They did a decent job at Linq but will never see a profit from the High Roller, too expensive, too few riders.
It's open for business. Some of the shops near the back are still vacant or in transition. Yeah, the shops are the usual cheezy stuff - but it's better than what was there before. My wife and I thought it was worth a look.
Are you talking about the rows and rows of identical steel box containers hardly 10'X10' each, 70% empty with the others housing mindless trinkets and doo-dads that can be seen in every other Hawaiian Marketplace type of establishment on the Strip?
The ones that are lined up like soldiers in formation, hindering access to Ballys entrance and causing bottleneck effects to those walking the Strip?
It's o.k., I guess.......poke:
I walked though the bazaar in April. I didn't go into one store except to tell our ladies where we were going.
It's remarkable to me how wonderful the Linq is and how the Bazaar completely missed the mark.
A high end, upscale, over priced Flea market. Stayed at Bally's a month ago, walked through it twice, otherwise went out the sides to Stage Door or Paris, nothing to see there.
