Las Vegas locals and frequent visitors have referred to the Stratosphere as “The Strat” for a long time – but now the common nickname is the official name. The North Las Vegas Boulevard property, which depending on who you ask is either a Downtown Las Vegas hotel or a Strip hotel (the resort claims the latter), began a $140 million renovation project after being acquired by Golden Entertainment in October 2017. The renovation and rebranding promised a new name, new restaurants, upgraded rooms and more.
The retro neon lettering above the entrance to the former Stratosphere has been replaced with new, modern signage that showcases the property’s new name. The new look is sleeker and vaguely art deco.
The former site of Roxy’s Café – a 1950s-inspired diner just off the casino floor – is now Strat Cafe. Here, you’ll find a contemporary 24-hour restaurant with tufted booths and chevron flooring where you enjoy elevated takes on cafe cuisine.
Blvd. & Main Taphouse
So far, Blvd. & Main Taphouse has been one of the Strat’s most successful additions. Diners love this new gastropub, which is a great place to watch the game while enjoying local craft beer on tap, buffalo fried oysters, loaded tater tots, thin crust pizza and sliders.
Renovations at the Strat mainly focused on upgrading over 300 guest rooms. The resort’s Elevate Rooms feature new mattresses and bedding, free in-room coffee (a rarity in Las Vegas), walk-in showers, integrated charging stations and 55-inch televisions with HDMI ports.
Renovated Casino Floor
Even if you’re not staying at the Strat, you can still see the fruits of the renovation by strolling the casino floor. The Strat upgrades included a total renovation of this space, which now features blue and gold touches and a more modern experience overall.
Question: What’s better than watching the sunset over the neon lights of Las Vegas? Answer: Watching the sunset over the neon lights of Las Vegas while enjoying handcrafted ice cream. Local chef James Trees’ venture 108 Eats pairs sky-high views with mushroom truffle paninis, roasted tomato caprese sandwiches, salt and vinegar popcorn and plenty of homemade ice cream and sorbet.
William Hill Sports Book
An eye-catching new sports book at the Strat offers the perfect venue for relaxing and watching the game. The William Hill Sports Book includes ample seating, high definition screens, individual screens, cocktails, cuisine and a prime location for sports betting.
Wondering what the deal is with that zebra-striped tent outside of the Strat? It’s Celestia, the resort’s new gravity-defying circus-style show. Step inside the 200,000-square-foot tent and marvel as over three dozen acrobats, contortionists and other performers dazzle you with stunts such as knife throwing, balancing acts and more.
