The D : The Editors Choice For Most Improved In Las Vegas

The D

The transformation of the dump that was Fitzgerald's into The D is a story less about paint, carpet and decor and all about the triumph of the independent spirit. Walking in the footsteps of the great Benny Binion, Derek Stevens has grabbed the brass bolt of Downtown Las Vegas and brought to fruition promises most other area operators have left to gather dust. We know in our heart of hearts that Jeff Simpson, our fallen friend for whom this award is named, would've watched the transformation of The D with a keen eye, the results of which would've have made him incredibly proud. The D is a property for Las Vegas lovers, by a Las Vegas lover.
