SLS Las Vegas already has a track record of misrepresenting its location to anyone whose money they seek (bending the truth to rope in Chinese investors) and now they're doing it to you.

Exhibit C: This rendering of SLS, currently being used in their promotional materials and advertisements.

SLS Location Bullshit

Hrm. If this is to be believed, SLS is located across the street from Fashion Square Mall within a champagne shower distance of Wynn and Encore. Nothing could be further from the truth, from that vantage point, you can't see one single solitary speck of SLS.

SLS Location Bullshit

To help illustrate this, we've created a little strolling panorama that illustrates - to scale - exactly how far SLS is from Encore. Slide or scroll to the left and follow along as we take scrolling stroll from SLS to the Encore Tower Suites porte cochere lobby.

High Roller Panorama

I know a bunch of y'all out there are lawyers... can they be sued for this?

Thanks to JohnH for the tweet tip.

Caveat Emptor

Who knew they tore down Tacos el Gordo just north of Encore and plopped SLS there? Do not ever let anyone tear down Tacos el Gordo. Tacos el Gordo........YMMMMMMM!

Same with the Peppermill.....

The Chinese investors will sue only if they do not see a significant return on their investment. This post will be Exhibit 158-S in what will inevitably be a long, boring and costly trial. Perhaps when all is said and done CVS or Walgreens can come in and buy the SLS and transform it into the worlds largest drugstore/drugstore themed hotel in the world.

Loving that 63 story marquee.

@pkluvsvegas LOL.

Big applause for the panoramic.

Maybe SLS is on giant rollers? They roll down to Wynn to pick up patrons then roll back to the ass end of the Strip before they realize they have been duped.
