    I like what I like. And it's not loud music. And it doesn't mean I'm not positive or unhappy or whatever. I am what I am and I just don't like loud music. Some people do, that's fine. Some people don't.

    That doesn't make us negative nellies. Or old, for that matter.

    You said it perfectly! I've enjoyed plenty of loud rock concerts and I'll be at the Nugget to see Blue Oyster Cult on Friday. However, there is NOTHING negative about preferring conversation and relaxing while in the casino. I don't have a problem with people who want it loud but there's nothing wrong with people like me who prefer a different casino environment.

    I would be ok with loud music but when you're in the mix zone of the general casino music and one or two live bands from different bars it is too much for me...

    I think if people listen to music on a lower level, their ears pick it up just fine. Once it is too loud, it becomes muddled. At least for me.

    Ya that's ok, but turn it back down at 5 a.m. when I want to play VP again.

    Now if the Gold Coast had that kind of eye candy I wouldn't even notice the music volume.

    Quick note about 'theD' - it's not overly loud during the day, so if you've only ever gone in there at night & have stayed away because of the volume, give them another shot on the day shift.
    Personally? I wish they'd turn it down a bit at night, but that doesn't keep me away... packed tables will keep me away, not loud music.

    We can vote you off the island? :poke::popcorn:


    Nah, I'm not going to worry about the music being too loud during the daytime versus night time. I just assume they don't want my business so I go elsewhere.

    I sometimes go into the D (and GG) just to look at the girls working there but I hardly stick around to play, esp with the loud music.

    packed tables don't keep me away, cold tables keep me away. And I would only stick around if I was winning, otherwise the loud music would keep me away.

    Anyone remember the first time they walked into the Bellagio and heard the muted slot machines? High class is calm and unobtrusive. Everyone in Vegas wants to attract the younger crowd, but THE YOUNGER CROWD DOESN'T GAMBLE. Loud music is required if you want them to hang out at your video poker bar and pay for drinks.

    The D is just a bit much for me. I'm an old punk rocker that is no stranger to loud music. Hell, I just went to see Social Distortion for the 20th time 2 weeks ago. I spent a shit ton of my life at loud punk shows and in even louder bagpipe band competitions and practices.

    Loud music has a time and a place, when I'm in Vegas, particularly during a gaming session, I wanna hear the slots, glasses tinkling, and tolerable music. The D is like being at a concert before the bands come on. I guess The Gold Coast is going that way now also. However, there are plenty of other places that don't play music at stadium concert levels. That's where I'll be.

    This is one of the biggest reasons why Fremont Street is so un appealing to me any more.

    Being younger I enjoy the music. I don't like the dead silence like I'm in a library that you get in places like the 4 Queens.

    Some of us consider 'gambling' to be a social activity. That means "conversation" - with each other, with the dealer, with the CW & even with the pit-critters.
    I don't think anyone here objects to "music" - or even somewhat 'loud' music...so long as we don't lose the social aspect of gambling because we cannot interact over the volume of the music.
    It's not as if there aren't places in Vegas that specifically cater to those who do want very loud, driving dance music - they're called nightclubs & pool-parties....oh, and strip clubs!
