The owners of two downtown Las Vegas casinos are anxious to add to their presence on Fremont Street and have purchased another property that will become a new hotel and casino.
Brothers Derek and Greg Stevens, who own D Las Vegas and Golden Gate, have purchased the building next to the shuttered Las Vegas Club. They have acquired the property, which houses the Mermaids and La Bayou casinos and the Topless Girls of Glitter Gulch, from Granite Gaming Group. The businesses will close June 27.
A sales price hasn’t been disclosed.
The brothers say they are still in the planning stages for the new hotel-casino, which will be the first ground-up development of a new property in downtown Las Vegas in decades.
The Stevens’ also own Clark County’s Bridger Building and the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center.
