Fremont Street is set to receive a bit of Detroit-style hospitality at both ends. This morning, Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino and PlayLV, announced that the Las Vegas Club—formerly owned by The Tamares Group and operated by PlayLV—has been sold to a company owned by Derek and Greg Stevens, owners and operators of The D Las Vegas.
In an email statement, Jossel said that Tamares and PlayLV had been “working on various development prospects for the Las Vegas Club”—reportedly among them a drugstore and a plan to convert some of its rooms to luxury apartments—but selling the property outright proved a more attractive option.
Derek Stevens (pictured left) hasn’t yet announced his plans for Las Vegas Club, but a name change and full remodel seems likely, as does the application of a building-sized photo of a woman’s legs with one drooping foot. In the meantime, PlayLV will continue to run day-to-day operations at Las Vegas Club, so if you’ve got a thing for playing in doomed old-school casinos, better get down there now. D-construction is imminent.
