Monte Carlo To Construct Outdoor Bar At Fountain Entrance
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: planning monte carlo comments: 9
The trend started by Diablo's Cantina at Monte Carlo and turned into law by Encore's strip front Beach Club - annexing any and all strip frontage for alcohol sales - is claiming a part of another one of Las Vegas' (very) minor attractions, the Monte Carlo fountain entrance.
Monte Carlo, d/b/a Victoria Partners, has submitted plans to Clark County to build a 24 foot high, two story 6,350 sq foot bar on the north east corner of the property (just south of the CVS.)
The outside drinking area is a raised platform, enclosed by an 8 foot high glass guardrail wall and has a direct access to the bar. There is a 61 foot wide hardscaped area/pedestrian access easement on the east side between the outside drinking area and Las Vegas Boulevard South.
The plans show existing landscaping on the north and southeast sides of the building which will remain; however, the existing landscape area on the south side of the proposed bar adjacent to the existing water feature will be modified to accommodate new stairs to the second level of the bar (platform).
The plans depict a 24 foot high, 2-story building, with a mix of Mediterranean and contemporary exterior design. Building materials include polished metal panel, glass store front, glass guardrail, back-lit glass panels, and concrete stairways to match the existing resort.
The plans show a 6,350 square foot proposed bar that includes Level 1, for a total of 6,105 square feet, consisting of 3 bar areas, a fire pit, overall sitting area, and an outside drinking area, which is 1,435 square feet. Level 2 consists of a 245 square foot stage for live entertainment.
Note "with a mix of Mediterranean and contemporary exterior design." We knew it was just a matter of time before Monte Carlo got some City Center on it. Most certainly, this construction is in response to Cosmopolitan's success at hoovering up street traffic and City Center's $9.6 billion dollar failure to do so.
We'll keep our eyes on this as it develops. Thanks to VT super tipster stevecovington for dropping a dime!
