Las Vegas Opening of the Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino
The Lucky Dragon Hotel Resort & Casino will be opening its doors in Las Vegas in late 2016. The 27,000 square foot resort will feature a Chinese theme complete with authentic culture and gambling. Principal investors – the Fonfa and Wiedner family – assure all parties involved that the work will be completed on schedule.
This niche casino/resort will be the first of its kind in Las Vegas. The Lucky Dragon will have authentic cuisine straight out of China. “Everything is in place, and we will go all out to make this establishment one of the best in Las Vegas, said Lucky Dragon CEO David Jacoby.
Although the hotel is sure to thrill all guests, it will likely draw many Asian visitors looking for a taste of home. The staff will be multi-lingual, and Chinese will be first language and English second.

A great deal of money has been poured into the project. Every inch of the casino will have an Asian influence. Veteran architect Ed Vance will head the project. “I am looking forward to the experience. This is my first Asian-themed project, but I’m up to the challenge,” said Vance. The Las Vegas Economic Regional Center has also hired on Feng Shui master Lin Huang as an advisor, and Lee Cagly will help with the interior design.
An indoor/outdoor tea garden with a waterfall and lounge is just a small sampling of the perks slated for the Lucky Dragon. The resort’s casino will also feature mostly Asian table games such as Pai Gow and Baccarat. Guests looking to play western-styled games can enjoy Blackjack.
The ceiling of the classically-styled gaming floor will feature a giant multi-colored dragon sculpture. The bar will have a pagoda shape. The area will have a VIP high-roller room with a number of luxuries such as catered food, flat-screen television and oversize sofas.
The hotel’s 204 rooms and suites will offer stylish and spacious accommodations. The pride of the Lucky Dragon is the 1,300 square foot penthouse with a panoramic view of the strip. The standard rooms are equipped with 625 square feet of space and a number of amenities.
In addition to the Jewel Kitchen, which serves up delicious Pan-Asian dining, the hotel will offer additional eateries just beyond the casino floor. Guests can take advantage of a dim sum restaurant, night market and a restaurant that features some of Asia’s more exotic cuisine.
The resort spa will be an exact duplication of what is found in many Asian countries. Guests will enjoy mud massages, acupuncture, scrubs and even Chinese herbal medicine.
Booking for the Lucky Dragon will begin in June 2016.
