For the past 16 years, Las Vegas locals and tourists alike have watched the elegance of the Fontainebleau Las Vegas property be constructed from the ground up. For years, it seemed like the project would never be completed, but now Fontainebleau has announced an official opening date in 2023.
The upcoming Las Vegas property took to X (formerly Twitter) on the morning of Sept. 18, 2023 to make its big announcement — an official opening date of December 13, 2023!
At long last, those who have eagerly awaited the opportunity to experience the beauty and wonder of Fontainebleau Las Vegas will have their chance starting early this winter. According to Fontainebleau’s website, the property will feature “a stunning 150,000-square-foot casino, world-class dining, vibrant entertainment and nightlife, and more than 3,600 exquisite hotel rooms and suites.”
Ahead of Fontainebleau’s highly anticipated opening date, the property is seeking to hire numerous employees for a wide array of available positions. From jobs in hotel operations and food & beverage, to careers in housekeeping, spa & wellness and more, there are hundreds of open positions for potential applicants to explore. Applications for available positions with Fontainebleau can now be accessed and completed online. To explore the vast range of available career opportunities with Fontainebleau Las Vegas, click here.
While the original plan for the luxurious Fontainebleau Las Vegas was to open its doors in 2008, those who have eagerly awaited the opportunity to explore the property are simply thrilled to know that their chance is just around the corner. From the 2007-2008 financial crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic, this property has ultimately persevered through the many difficulties and unfortunate circumstances of the past 16 years. But as the saying goes… Better late than never, right?

Demolition On The Strip: More Las Vegas Properties To Be Imploded (VIDEO)
We love a good spectacle here in Las Vegas. Our lovely city is no stranger to wiping out buildings in the most elaborate way possible – a good ol’ implosion. And it has been announced that a few properties on the Las Vegas Strip will be imploded soon.
For those that may not know, an implosion is the exact opposite of an explosion. When a building is imploded, rather than bits and chunks flying all over the place, an imploded structure is brought down on itself in a much more “controlled” fashion. It’s a very fascinating process, and Las Vegas has utilized this form of demolition for decades.
Billionaire NBA owner, Tillman Fertitta, recently purchased property on the strip, located at Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue. The land is currently home to a motel (which recently closed) and some shuttered souvenir shops, and Fertitta has pulled demolition permits for those buildings. According to The Street, he plans to build a 43-story resort casino on the property following the demolition of the current buildings. KA-BOOM!
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “New York investment firm Gindi Capital also landed county approvals for a three-story retail complex on 9.5 acres just south of Fertitta’s spread. It would span more than 300,000 square feet and replace a cluster of existing properties, including the now-shuttered Hawaiian Marketplace.” It is believed that the Hawaiian Marketplace will be demolished as well, and my heart hurts.
The third property that will soon cease to exist is the legendary Terrible’s Casino, located just 25 miles of the Las Vegas Strip. If you’ve ever driven to or from California on the 15, you’ve seen this gem off to the side of the freeway. The Street reports “Reno real estate firm Tolles Development plans to build a nearly-2 million-square-foot industrial park…” However, I can find some peace in the property’s inevitable removal, as we’ve been reassured that the implosion of the property would be completed in a very elaborate, theatrical fashion. Just the way we like it!
If you’re like me, you frequently find yourself down a rabbit hole, watching videos of past Las Vegas demolitions on YouTube. I don’t know. It’s a strange addiction. They’re my comfort videos, and they’re absolutely mesmerizing. So much history being destroyed within a matter of seconds in the most dramatic fashion possible… If you haven’t seen these videos, they’re a must-see. You might even find yourself lurking down the rabbit hole yourself before you know it.
