Peep The Vortex at The Quad
Ever since the Linq project was announced, we've been fascinated with The Vortex - the cantilevered neon tornado thingy atop the building that used to be O'Sheas.
But - beyond a cantilevered neon tornado thingy - what is it? A rooftop bar? A photo opportunity? An outdoor dining terrace? A nightclub? Tropical hot dog night? Two flamingos in a fruit fight? So the young girls will come out to meet the Monster tonight?
VT Vice President of Research, the great Mac78130, found some stellar renderings of the guts of The Vortex, courtesy of design firm of record HetzelDesigns.
At the outset, worth noting that the last four of Caesars Entertainment's developments have had outdoor components - The Vortex (this), Linq, Cromwell rooftop and Ballys Grand Bazaar. Coupled with The Park near NYNY and Monte Carlo's new exterior and the forthcoming Tropicana retail/dining expansion, outside is the new inside.

RRRRRRING. Hello? Yes, this is Chuck. Not a bother... just in the middle of writing someth.... Yes. Right. Of course I saw it. Yeah, I had the album too. Main Course is better. Ok.... I'll tell him. No problem. Gary, the late 1970's just called... they want their dance floor back.
Booths. Tables. Bars. Cabanas. It looks sorta like a nightclub but I'm hesitant to call the spade because it doesn't have a clear hierarchy of tables for bottle service. Plus... where is the DJ booth? Also, why would Caesars engage in a battle of neighboring rooftop nightclubs at two properties they own? Then again...
I'm guessing that The Vortex will be sorta like Chateau, the Strip facing, rooftop bar nightlife concept that didn't quite take off at Paris. An energetic ultralounge(ish) joint which only turns away the bottom 80% of fanny packers.
I'm intrigued... not only buy this but also by Drai's rooftop pool at Cromwell. The rooftops in Vegas have now become actionable square footage. See also the Altitude pool coming to SLS Las Ferrets.
