Lucky Dragon is the first resort to be built on the Vegas Strip from the ground up since the Cosmopolitan in 2010. With just 203 rooms, this boutique hotel and casino is a Chinese twist on the city’s trend toward smaller, contemporary-styled resorts.
The casino’s centerpiece is a 1.25-ton hand-blown glass dragon. Almost 800 employees spent 12 weeks assembling the thousand-piece sculpture, which hangs over the gaming tables like glowing jellyfish in a darkened aquarium. Beyond dragons, blackjack, and baccarat, the 27,500-square-foot casino houses 300 slot machines. An atrium level overlooks the casino floor.Hungry guests can dine at one of the property’s five restaurants. Described by executives as a “night market,” the fare is inspired by street food outlets in Taipei and Beijing. Cuisine ranges from freshly prepared Chinese favorites to dim sum and fine-dining delicacies, such as abalone and Kurobuta pork. Early reviews are two chopsticks up.
Want to try something unique? Check out the tea garden, which has its own tea sommelier. Searching for something strange? The hotel has nine floors, but don’t look for a fourth on the elevator panel. The Chinese consider the number four unlucky.
However, its biggest surprise is its pool area, now 21+, which features lily pads and daybeds flanked with bold colors will awaken even the most hungover waders. A secondary glass-sided pool will suit those who wish to gawk and flaunt at hard bodies as they sip on hard drinks.
The poolside cabana suites—perhaps the Linq’s most unique feature—bring the boutique interior outside, impressing with cobalt blue and lime exterior walls and white and gray lounges that transport guests to Santorini, Greece.
These changes—coupled with the phenomenal center Strip location, still very reasonable rates, and the attached Linq Outdoor Shopping District—make Linq a great choice for your next Vegas stay.
