Hyde Nightclub To Close

The one consistent thing in Las Vegas is that the city is always changing and one upcoming change is the announcement that Hyde at the Bellagio will close on July 6th. Hyde is the nightclub that has an amazing 10,000 square foot space with an amazing spot with views of the Bellagio fountains. The Hyde space will be remodeled with a new name and concept, no  date has been announced but it’s expected to reopen by the end of the year. Hyde has been open about eight years which is a pretty good run and the club i’m sure was busy but for such a prime space the club would need to be full all the time so maybe a new name and concept will bring in new crowds.

Lady Gaga Added To Fountain Show

Bellagio Fountains

Lady Gaga’s hit 2009 song “Bad Romance” has been added to the Bellagio Fountain Show so it will now be included in the song rotation. It takes several months to add  a new song to the show to sync it to the dancing waters and lighting but with Lady Gags’s huge following i’m sure it will be popular. The song was added one day after Lady Gaga won an Academy Award for best original song in her movie “A Star Is Born. The last song added to the Bellagio Fountain Show if you are interested was “Believe” by Cher over a year ago.

Water Grill To Open In Las Vegas

The Water Grill a popular seafood restaurant in Southern California has announced that it’s opening a Las Vegas location in the former space of Spago in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The new restaurant is due to open February 15th next year and is owned by King’s Seafood Company which owns six seafood restaurant groups including the King;s Fish House which has a restaurant at the District at Green Valley Ranch.

Spago was a long time fixture at the Forum Shops having opened in 1992 before it moved to the Bellagio last June, its former space is a prime location which should be a great location for the Water Grill. The Water Grill has four locations in Southern California as well as a location in Dallas, i have visited the Costa Mesa location and had a very good meal with great service so I look forward to checking out the Las Vegas location.

Update March 11th 2019

The Water Grill restaurant was announced with a planned opening of February 15th of this year and then their Facebook group said Summer 2019 but now it looks like the restaurant may open by the end of this month. I guess we have to wait a little longer for dozen varieties of fish prepared daily for lunch and dinner or the chilled shellfish menu but if you love seafood it’s worth the wait.

Bellagio Fountains

Bellagio Fountains

In Las Vegas there are many free attractions but the top of many people’s list as a not to miss in Las Vegas is often the Bellagio Fountains. The nightly shows draw big crowds to the front of the Bellagio as the more than a thousand jets of water shoot water as high as 460 feet in to the air. The fountains shoot water in sync with various styles of music with everything from pop, opera, classical, Broadway to classic Las Vegas singers. If you want to see the show in a good viewing spot i would suggest you get there early and wait especially for the evening and weekend shows as at these times the show draws big crowds.

Fountain Show Times:

Monday to Friday every 30 minutes from 3 pm to 8pm and then every 15 minutes from 8 pm to midnight

Saturdays and Holidays the shows start at noon and then every 30 minutes until 8 pm and then every 15 minutes until midnight

Sundays the shows start at 11 am and then every 30 minutes until 7 pm and then every 15 minutes until midnight

Patisserie’s Get Renamed

Bellagio Fountains

Because of the split of Jean Philippe Maury and MRI properties the two former Jean Philipe Patisserie’s have been renamed with names reflecting their location with the newly named Aria Patisserie as well as the Bellagio Patisserie. It’s not known if these will be the permanent names for these locations, but I do know the pastries are amazing and worth checking out.

Spago At Forum Shops To Close

A longtime fixture of the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace the famous restaurant Spago by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck has announced that it will close this Saturday January 27th. But fans of Spago in Las Vegas shouldn’t worry the restaurant will return this Summer at a new location at the Bellagio in the former space of Todd English’s Olives which had been at the property since 1998. When Spago opened in 1992 at the Forum Shops Las Vegas was a very different city and some doubted that a celebrity chef restaurant especially one inside a mall would work, but Spago proved it would in a city that now has numerous celebrity chef restaurants. No date on the opening for the new Spago has been announced other than sometime this Summer, but once the 2.5 million makeover is done to the space i’m sure the Spago fans will fill the new location.

Getting A Suite Tour

wynn las vegas

Amazingly in Las Vegas you can get a tour of a hotel suite just by asking, the availability of the tours depends on which suites are not booked as well as staff availability to show you. The larger properties such as the Mirage, Bellagio, Wynn, Encore are the most likely to accomadate you they are also some of the properties with the best suites; If you are interested just call the property and ask the hotel desk for the availability of touring a suite.

Parking Charges On The Strip


MGM Resorts had announced that with the opening of the T Mobile Arena that they would start charging for parking at its nearby properties. The properties charging the fees are Bellagio, Aria, Vdara, New York New York and the soon to be rebranded Monte Carlo. The only way to avoid the charge is if you are have a Nevada driving license and are willing to have it scanned. I would expect this soon to become the norm on the Strip as i’m sure other companies are looking at this as another way to increase income. I wonder if Caesars Entertainment will have a campaign against the parking fees then turn around and add them and say the customers requested being charged so they added them, no i’m sure that would never happen. I cannot see off Strip properties rushing to add a parking charge as most of there business is locals who drive to the property and often visit several times in a month instead unlike a tourist.

LAGO Opens At The Bellagio
