    We popped in for a sneak peek of The Quad, and honestly, our mouth’s still agape. Which, admittedly, is not a great look for us, but we digress.

    Catalyst Bar

    The Catalyst Bar is the centerpiece of The Quad’s expanded casino area, and we can’t wait to have our first cocktail at this impressive bar.

    There are lots of new flourishes in the renovated casino. We especially like the fancy light fixtures.

    The expanded casino will be the new location for The Quad’s dealertainers, blackjack dealers who also perform as music’s greatest stars. Or they’re performers who deal blackjack. We can never keep that straight.

    During our visit, we got to see a funky tool being used to level one of the new roulette wheels. This tri-point level (called an AccuLevel) sits in the groove where the ball circles the wheel before dropping into the numbered slots. A perfectly level wheel ensures the game’s fair for players and the casino.

    There’s something exciting about new table games. What’s not to love about the arm rests on the new craps tables at The Quad, pictured below?

    Another new addition to The Quad is the “Q” Wine & Spirits store. On opening day (8:00 a.m. on Feb. 29, 2013), the shelves will be filled with a few of our favorite things, including, but not limited to, wine and spirits.

    Unrelated to anything, look what we found in the hotel’s gift shop, nearby. This blog’s other favorite things!

    There’s a lot to take in at The Quad, so plan to spend some time checking out the new casino area, the new Catalyst Bar, the new porte-cochère, the new Registration and Total Rewards desks, and much more.

    Bio: The Pulse of Vegas blog includes references to “we” often. But it’s actually written by one (incredibly modest) individual, Scott Roeben, a humorist, photographer, author and longtime Las Vegas resident. “We should probably interview ourselves sometime. We find us fascinating,” he says. The Pulse of Vegas blog is the official Las Vegas blog of Caesars Entertainment, the folks who run a bevy of Las Vegas hotels. It received the inaugural “Most Valuable Las Vegas Blogger” award by CBS Local/KXNT News Radio.
