There have been a bunch of restaurant and bar closings in Las Vegas over the past few weeks and the latest is, no surprise to most Vegas nerds, Silk Road at Vdara. Here are some of the details from Tasting Las Vegas, who was the first I saw to pass on confirmation of this long talked about rumor.
Boo! The much speculated closing of Silk Road at the Vdara resort at CityCenter is finally coming to fruition. I’m bummed. It was a fabulous restaurant in a horrible location; horrible location meaning the Vdara resort. However, before its closure, the much anticipated Market Café Vdara is scheduled to open on March 1st. Finally, the so-called residentially-friendly CityCenter is going to have a grocery store.
In addition to Silk Road closing Fontana Bar at Bellagio and Alex at Wynn Las Vegas among others are all closing. From what I’m seeing most of these places are being replaced with newer, similar facilities.
This is Vegas and this happens – a lot. Nothing lasts forever. However, there is only one place I don’t want to every see closed or change and that’s Petrossian Bar at Bellagio. Petrossian has great drinks and great people watching as well as a great location!
