“We’re thrilled to see our vision come to fruition on the north end of the Strip and look forward to hosting our very first guests...” said Robert Oseland, president and chief operating officer of SLS Las Vegas.
SLS Las Vegas is Los Angeles-based developer SBE Entertainment’s first hotel-casino in Las Vegas and includes more than 1,600 guest rooms and suites, a nightclub, shopping, restaurants and 30,000 square feet of meeting space.
The property will be home to The Sayers Club, the LiFE nightclub and a number of restaurants, including the Bazaar by José Andrés, Katsuya, Cleo, Umami Burger, 800 Degrees, the Griddle Café, the SLS Buffet and the Perq.
The $400 million property will open on the site of the Sahara, which closed May 16, 2011, after 59 years on the Strip.
SBE has more than 80 properties in operation or development and has expanded several of its flagship brands, including SLS Hotels. Founded in 2002 by Chairman and CEO Sam Nazarian, SBE is a privately held company.
