A piece of Las Vegas history in Downtown is vanishing piece by piece as the former Las Vegas Club is demolished to make way for a future resort property that most likely won’t appear until 2020 or later. The Las Vegas Club opened in 1930 a year before gambling was legalized in Nevada but over recent years the place suffered manny years of decline and the sports theme exterior looked tacky as well as dated. The property is now owned by Derek Stevens who refitalized the former Fitzgerald’s with a huge remodel after which he renamed it the D Las Vegas. Derek Stevens has also addded suites as well as sprucing up the Golden Gate across the street which he also owns with his brother. Construction on the new resort should begin early in the New Year but no word yet on the new properties name or theme which should take at least two years to compete.
