SLS Las Vegas has been sending out a huge update of promotions, concerts, restaurant and bar specials, locals only deals, nightlife, etc. happenings every week for the past couple of months. I share some of the information on the sites I work with when appropriate but much of the information is really only news once.
The new direction SLS has taken has brought a lot of activity to SLS that’s a little beyond what the typical news outlets might cover. I’m not sure that this is working to grow revenue but it’s good to see them at least trying.
I expect the property will continue to evolve into a casino that’s very different from the one that opened last year. With these updates in mind I wanted to share the current happenings at SLS. There’s a lot of information below so I limited my editing. Check out the haps.
