One thing I love about Nevada especially Las Vegas is that there is always something new going on. City Center is back in the news. This time it’s not about windows melting stuff or a building that can’t be used. This time the news is an auditorium that has sat unfinished for 3 years is now going to be completed.
The 3000 seat 65,000 sqft. venue at the Cosmopolitan should be open by the end of the year. It will be called Chelsea, which is the name being used for the current Ballroom that will be renamed.
Is there a need for another auditorium? It’s not the 12000 seat venue at Mandalay Bay so maybe a smaller place will draw some business. They are looking to use the space for conventions or even boxing. The City Center is an area I tend to skip myself so maybe that’s exactly the reason why they decided to move forward with this project now, to get more people in the door. I guess this time next year we shall see. I'll have to check it out on one of my trips down.
