    Thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm bummed about no more live music, there was a Motown band that used to play there that I love. Wonder if they'll have any (non-live) music, like a DJ or something.

    I can't tell from the photos - is there any VP at the bar? I'm guessing not if they are going for an upscale lounge feel.

    I think you are talking about "JAMM". They were a really really good cover group. They perform at paris and caesers now I think. I wish ballys would have just kept things the same tbh.

    Yeah, I think he is talking about JAMM. I loved that place, got a good laugh one time watching a 70 yr old guy try to dance with his 20yr old hooker. She couldnt quit laughing either!

    I'm not big on Bally's casino floor, but I agree with this. It was nice background music for the nearby gamblers. :evillaugh

    Just wait, the old Drais will be a LGBT club as soon as Drais moves. Talk about shocking some customers.

    I know that the Paris lounge now has a band most (every?) night now. Maybe the band from Bally's moved over there on the nights the regular band was off.

    Is this speculation, joking or something that is happening for a fact? Seems like it would be an odd choice for Bally's, tho I personally have no issue with a LGBT venue.

    Nope, it's really happening. Once Drai's afterhours moves back to Cromwell, the space they're using now at Bally's will be turned into a club geared towards the LGBT crowd. There was an article a month or so about this, and Victor Drai mentioned that he thought there was room in the market for something LGBT, instead of just another night club.

    I'm going to get roasted here...but oh well - I'm going to say it.

    I think this will hurt Bally's.

    Why?

    Because (and what follows is my perception only):

    In the quest for equality LGBT (in general) are explicitly and visually forceful. Meaning that, the LGBT people that I have known want everyone to know their orientation in a forceful attempt to be accepted.

    As a result, heterosexual co-workers and friends feel like the LGBT person is overbearingly expressing (in speech and action) their sexual orientation, more than a heterosexual person (in the same social setting does).

    Therefore, those heterosexuals are completely turned off and feel very uncomfortable around the LGBT person. Why? because they are LGBT? NO! Because they are overbearingly and explicitly demanding - by speech and action - that everyone knows they are LGBT.


    Let the roasting of me begin!

    Jamm, yes. Wasn't there also a (very good) band called Envy? Indigo Lounge did not need to be tampered with!

    No roasting--but you're completely wrong, and kind of hijacking the thread, to boot.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. If you truly accept a person, they have no incentive to be anything but themselves around you. And since the club will be in the mall area whch has its own entrance, I wonder how many clubgoers will even pass through the casino to access it. At any rate, Bally's casino floor needs something to give it some character so it would help if they do walk through. I wonder if they chose Bally's in part due to proximity to the Cromwell and Drai's itself. You could start at Bally's and finish up across the street, I guess.

    i disagree this is 2014 , whos going to cut your hair , diesign your home.

    who cares if your gay , strait , black white where all people,

    if they loose straight old people or ted cruz cancels his stay becuase of lgbt they will pick up a whole new clientel.

    luxor is also targeting the same crowd.


    gee people fly southwest and they seem to do okay, have you seen there male flight attendants:thumbsup:

    Absolutely correct!

    And my point had nothing to do with dehumanizing people.

    My point was an observation from my life experience. Maybe the gay and lesbian people I have worked with and been friends with are the minority...I don't know, I only know what I have seen.

    (In the manufacturing plant that I worked at in university I was the only one to befriend a gay co-worked. he knew I treated him diffrent than most heterosexuals did, and commented on it on a number of occasion saying things like 'Why do you treat me just as you do everyone else?' 'What is different about you that you don't despise me?' ect.)

    He also was flagrantly gay and told, showed and said way too many details.

    In his fight for acceptance he forced himself - figuratively - and his sexual orientation into every conversation and opportunity, which turned people off even more. (I don't have straight friends that force their sexual orientation into every conversation and push their lifestyle at every opportunity. (Though this is only 1 friend, my other gay and lesbian friends would greatly resemble what I described.)
