Lady Luck Loses Sign, Looks to Future

After almost 40 years, the last traces of the Lady Luck Hotel and Casino are leaving Las Vegas.

The sign on the building was taken down Thursday. The hotel is being renovated, reopened and re-branded as “The Downtown Grand.”  Fifth Street Gaming is partnering with another group for the $100 million project.

“It is a wave of change, a lot of things that have been anticipated for years are coming to fruition,” Seth Schorr, Fifth Street Gaming CEO said.

The company hopes to be part of the downtown redevelopment that has been gaining momentum for years.

“We are so thrilled about Symphony Park, specifically The Smith Center, the Mob Museum coming online next year, and of course having Zappos," Schorr said.

There is no timeline for when the new Downtown Grand will open. A mob-themed bar will open at the property next month, while another old bar at the hotel will be converted to a 1920s-themed supper club.

Tourists who watched the sign coming down think this type of change is vital to luring more visitors to the area.

"This is my favorite part of town, and I think more people would come if they saw it getting fixed up over here," Donna Lamb, a visitor from California, said.

With the $35 million face-lift, The Plaza has already received and the plans at the former Lady Luck, a lot of people are betting downtown will become more tourists' favorite place.
