We’re sure those living in the Manhattan Condos facing the former Stoney’s location on Las Vegas Boulevard miss their rowdy neighbor—especially during National Finals Rodeo and Professional Bull Riders events—but those city slickers can still get their dose of Stoney Gray and Chris Lowden’s rockin’ country (as well as a little peace and quiet) now that the country megaclub has moved into a sprawling corner of Town Square with enough parking for the whole herd. Inside, the pine floor is as slick as ever for complimentary line-dance lessons before the cow(boy)s come home for Shiner Bock and Jack Daniel’s. Gone are most of the arcade games, but billiards and beer pong are still gentlemanly pursuits in which you can engage between the Cowboy Cha-Cha and Sleazy Slide. Plus it still has that new-club smell. And did we spy a poker table in a private VIP room?
A Peek at Life Is Beautiful 2017
Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
