Lucky Dragon will officially debut its north Strip, 203-room hotel and 27,500-square-foot casino resort on Dec. 3, but until now, the resort has been shy about sharing images of the almost finished interior. The first official peek shows the entrances to two of Lucky Dragon's five future restaurants and a hint at the size of the casino floor below.
Currently sporting less gold bling than suggested by early renderings, on the left side of the image is the entrance to Pearl Ocean, set to offer a menu that includes all-day dim sum carts and a "live seafood room" where guests can "select live exotic seafood flown in daily to be prepared in both traditional and modern culinary styles." The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, with an earlier 10 a.m start on the weekend.
Next door, signage has been mounted for Phoenix, the resort's 60-seat fine-dining Chinese restaurant that includes a private balcony. Planned to be open daily from 5 to 10 p.m., it will stay open until 11 p.m. on the weekend.
Featuring a dragon motif, the chandelier looms over the casino floor’s Center Bar, which will be surrounded by baccarat, pai gow, fan tan and sic bo gaming tables.
The casino level will also lead to Dragon’s Alley, inspired by Asian night markets and highlighted by a casual menu of street food, and the 24-hour Bao Now, serving dim sum, soups, rice and noodle dishes designed to go.
While the Dec. 3 opening date is official, local rumors expect unannounced public previews will swing the doors open sooner.
