Now that The Linq has launched its new sports-book and fast casual dining on the casino floor, directly above, work continues on the most unusual project to debut on the Strip in 2019.

Without fanfare, the 100,000-square-foot, $100 million project fronted by musician and Lollapalooza co-founder Perry Farrell, is slowly dropping new renderings on social media, allowing a better insight into the mysterious backstory of the immersive, multi-level space.

Visitors will begin their “journey of transformation” with a “virtual train” ride that drops them off inside a hyper-stylized version of Southeast Asia. Street foods will be available, inspired by markets in Singapore, Thailand, and Hong Kong.

At The Dispensary bar, customers can order a drink created with alcohol and herbs that matches their current “feelings,” or select a concoction that leads them to a different emotion they would like to feel.

Level two has been dubbed “The Forest” a quieter respite, designed with “lost temples,” tree houses and vegetation.

Level 3, also know as “The Sanctuary,” is inspired by Nepal and Bhutan. The upper levels will also add a 1,000-room concert hall booked with Asian performers little known to Western audiences. The musical curation has already drawn praise from star DJ Steve Aoki, featured in a new publicity video.

And to pay for this “petri dish for art and happiness,” instead of cash, customers will use wristbands they load with the Yala Coin cryptocurrency to buy additional goods and services.
