Lucky Dragon Hotel and Casino is the first resort built on the Vegas Strip from the ground up since the Cosmopolitan in 2010. With just 203 rooms, this boutique hotel and casino puts a Chinese twist on the city’s trend toward smaller, contemporary-style 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 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 give 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.
