Casa Fuente, the cigar lounge at the Forum Shops at Caesars, has reopened as promised, but is still partly hidden while adjacent construction rushes to be completed.
With an estimated $350,000 allocated for the remodel, Casa Fuente has increased the size of their fancy new humidor and added improvements to the cocktail lounge area.
Outside, the patio is currently restricted to eight seats, while large scale improvements to the mega-mall continue. Newly removed plywood shows the upgrades to the Forum Shops' escalators and the progress of work on the new fountain that will create an aquatic ambiance for the cigar aficionados below.
The Forum Shops remodel has an estimated construction budget of $5 million, part of a wave of ongoing improvements. Dramatic upgrades to the Strip side of the mall will begin in earnest in 2015.
