Fontainebleau proudly stands on the grounds where the El Rancho Hotel and Casino once lay. Its first introduction to the public was in May 2005 with hopeful plans to open by 2008 but was unfortunately derailed by the Great Recession and the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was in 2021 that Koch Industries’ real estate investment branch took over the impressive 67-story structure for an undisclosed sum, in association with Miami real estate heavyweight Jeffrey Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development. With the Fontainebleau name derived from Miami Beach, the project is priced at a staggering $3.7 billion.

The vision for Fontainebleau is that of a vertically integrated casino resort, mirroring the model of the Cosmopolitan. The ground floor will house the casino while the second and third floors will be the domain of shopping and dining. With initial plans indicating a casino floor measuring 150,000 square feet, it boasts of having 1,300 slot-machine options and 127 table game variants.

The casino also plans to host a sportsbook sprawling over 13,000 square feet, flanked by a high-limit room – among Las Vegas’ largest – spanning 18,000 square feet. The retail space at Fontainebleau will comprise of 35 high-end retailers leasing a collective 90,000 square feet.

Details about the dining options reveal 27 exquisite offerings including the American restaurant Vida and the Southeast Asian restaurant Komodo, Papi Steak, along with a speculated Mexican specialty from celebrity chef Gabriela Cámara.

The venue plans to host three entertainment venues including a day club, a nightclub called LIV, and a theatre capable of seating 3,800 guests, managed by Miami-based Groot Hospitality and nightlife aficionado David Grutman.

It has been suggested that Fontainebleau has managed to entice DJs Tiesto and Zedd from Resorts World, thanks to an impressive management team. The resort also plans to create a rooftop paradise offering seven different pool experiences covering six acres.

As the opening draws near, Fontainebleau Las Vegas has begun plans to onboard close to 6,500 new employees. The hope is to meet 1,500 of them through a five-day food, beverage, and nightlife job fair commencing on Monday, Sept. 25. Suitable candidates will enjoy the freedom to decide on joining either the Culinary Workers Local 226 or Bartenders Local 165, two unions representing 60,000 workers across Las Vegas and Reno.
