After more than 16 years of construction delays and financial challenges, Fontainebleau Las Vegas is finally set for its grand opening in just a couple of weeks.

J. Todd have an overview of this new, exciting resort and the amenities. Plus, Fontainebleau Las Vegas is not the only grand opening in Las Vegas for December, as the Durango Casino Resort is set to become the newest Station Casino property in Sin City.

Construction began on the Fontainebleau Vegas way back in 2007. Now the date has been set for the doors to open. That date is 13 December, which is just over two weeks away. We thought that leading up to the big day you may want to know a little bit about the Fontainebleau Las Vegas, including all the basics. This 67 story giant has over 3,600 rooms and suites, a 150,000 square foot casino floor, close to 100,000 square-feet of retail shops, and half a million square feet of customizable meeting space. And if all of this was not enough, Post Malone is scheduled to be the very first act at Fontainebleau Resort Las Vegas. His concerts are scheduled for 30 and 31 December.

First of all, the big blue building has been designed with the collaboration with several high-profile design partners and architects. There will be over thirty places to eat and drink, from the common coffee shops all the way up to bringing world class dining experiences to Las Vegas. Fontainebleau Las Vegas will have the following restaurants which they call “Signature Dining”. These venues include Don’s Prime steak house, La Fontaine, and Komodo Asian fusion. There are also the Ito, Papi Steak, Chyna Club, Cantina Contramar, KYU Las Vegas, and a place called Mother Wolf.
