In this video Adam reviews the D Casino Hotel in fantastic Las Vegas! Let’s see what he thinks about this beautiful resort casino on Freemont Street in Las Vegas, Nevada!
The new owners completed a $22 million renovation and rebranding to become the D Las Vegas in Fall 2012. the D Las Vegas Casino Hotel stands for “downtown”, and also refers to Derek Stevens’ nickname, and the Stevens’ hometown of Detroit. The remodel gave the property a more modern feel, including the addition of dancing dealers in table games. The second-floor casino has a “Vintage Vegas” theme featuring one of the only operational Sigma Derby games in Las Vegas.
The multimillion-dollar renovation upgraded all of the guest rooms and created luxury suites. The D also added a fine Italian steakhouse, Joe Vicari’s Andiamo Italian Steakhouse, and opened the first American Coney Island outside of Michigan on the building’s Fremont Street frontage. The property also features three distinct bars: Longbar, said to be the longest bar in Nevada at just fewer than 100 feet long; D Bar – a permanent outdoor bar on Fremont Street Experience featuring flair bartenders as well as dancing bartenders; and Vue Bar inside the second floor casino. The property’s Fremont Street façade was enhanced with the addition of an exterior escalator and interactive video exhibition created by former Cirque du Soleil producer Roger Parent, which together feature more than 40 giant flat-screen monitors combined with hundreds of feet of LED signage. Parent is also responsible for the casino’s interior escalator which uses LED technology and music depicting vintage imagery to transport guests to the vintage second-floor casino.
In February 2017, The D added an exterior video wall promoted as the “World’s Largest Keno Board”, displaying a live feed of keno numbers as they’re drawn inside the casino.
In 2013, the D expanded into hosting martial arts events as the venue hosted Lion Fight 11, a Muay Thai Tournament. The main event featured a match between Tetsuya Yamato, former WBC Muay Thai Japan Champion, and Kevin Ross, an American Muay Thai boxer. In addition, Lion Fight 11 was featured on AXS TV, a company founded by Mark Cuban.
In late 2013, the D became the first casino in the world to accept bitcoin for hotel rooms, restaurants, and gift shop items. Additionally, a bitcoin ATM was installed next to the gaming floor where customers can buy and sell bitcoin instantly for cash.
