During our most recent trip, we stayed for two nights in one of The D Suites at The D Las Vegas. The room was quite comfortable and would be an ideal base for a group of guys in town for March Madness or a fantasy football draft. It had plenty of space, three refrigerators, three TVs and tons of seating. The bed was comfortable and the shower was large enough for about six people (if you’re into that sort of sick behavior).
The only downside was the proximity to the Fremont Street Experience Viva Vision canopy and the stage below. If you have difficulty sleeping to the blaring sounds of Heart (either from the FSE show or the tribute band playing below), I suggest requesting a suite on a higher floor and/or facing the other direction.
After a 12-year run at New York New York, Coyote Ugly is closing at the end of February. The bar, (I can’t consider it a nightclub because they admitted me while wearing my usual footwear) known for scantily clad female bartenders who dance on the bar every 10 minutes (yeehaw), came to Las Vegas shortly after a shitty movie was made about the original New York location in 2000.
I rarely post stuff like this, but after I received and confirmed a tip about the closing from listener @vegasrebel10, I figured I might as well take advantage of this news by breaking an always-exciting Five Hundy exclusive. Drink it in and savor it.
No word on what New York New York has planned for the space.
Update: MGM Resorts and Coyote Ugly reached a deal to keep the place open.
