I believe the Sunday brunch you referred to was at the Reflection Bay Golf Clubhouse, and it was fantastic and well-known. As mentioned in this thread, the golf course is in escrow and should re-open (I heard February), so we will have to see if the brunch and restaurant are a part of the new opening. I believe at one time Bernard's Bistro in the Village was doing Sunday brunches, and may still be doing so.
Greetings everyone....keep the info coming about LLV :~) I love hearing what is going on there. It is so good to hear the restaurants are so busy. Any update on renting bikes? I think that would be a great idea. Also, how are real estate sales? Are there many foreclosures or do things seem to have settled down? The Sunday brunch sounds like another great idea to get people to the village. Anyway, good job on the updates :~)
Did I mention Reflection Bay will be opened in a few months!!!
As promised, I stopped by the area today and did my customary walk around the village, here are my findings:
It looks like work is starting on the former Casamar which is a good thing
I got a coffee and pastry at Las Cafe and the place was bristling with traffic for an early Monday morning, very nice place and will do well in the coming months
Then proceeded to enter the casino, they did a great job with the decor and the opening of Harry's restaurant. Layout of slots and games was good given the small space available
Now to the courses. In walking around both and taking pictures especially of RB, I've got to respectfully say there is no way RB will open in a couple of months. There was no watering being done, there wasn't any workers present except for one mower I saw in the distance coming down the hill from Tremezzo and no work has been done around the clubhouse that is overrun with weeds. It would need an all-hands on deck to have it ready in a couple of months and there was no indication that it will be ready anytime soon
The Falls in contrast could be ready in a couple of months and would be the smarter move to get the golf traffic back to the area. Fairways and greens are in much better condition right now, just need to get the weeds out of the bunkers.
@ GolfinNova, thanks for the update. I was told they were beginning the build-out on the former Casamar Market to open the grocery store. I'm glad to hear it's actually happening. The build out will be in stages. However, how great will it be to be able to get competitively priced groceries right in the village!?!?! The thought of not having to travel out near Boulder Highway will be just amazing!!!!!
I too have been to Las Cafe and I agree to Golfinnova on all points. The best thing is they have regular and dependable hours and later on special events. Also agree on the casino.
We were told by the mgr of the southshore course that RB would be opened within a few months. I doubt they will begin any maintenance on the course or the clubhouse until the ownership has officially changed hands. Carmel has no reason to do any work. I just checked the tax rolls and ownership is still with Carmel, although it may take a week or so to update the clark county assessor data. I agree, that unless there is an all hand on deck, it would take longer than a few months... but anything is possible!
In addition to the grocery store, there are 3 other businesses slated to open by July 4th. If the 4th is anything like Memorial Day, it will be amazing!! I wish I could be there!!!
Bernard's Bisto has an amazing brunch. Harry's at the Casino serves up a nice breakfast too. Actually, all of the restaurants have great meals. It's also my understanding that beginning in June, the restaurants will all have better set hours. The Irish Pub is now opened on Tuesdays too!!!
Thank you everyone for your positive posts and updates!!! NevadaLou, I just sent you an email just before signing on. Good to see you posting. I can update you on your real estate questions on email or phone.
Ecco, thanks for that. You are correct, the brunch was held a the Reflection Bay Clubhouse. And as I am typing I gotta say, I am reminiscing about it. Loved the flombe dessert they had as well as all the other choices. My take is, when they get that going again, people will come. Everytime I was there, it was busy.
One more thing I forgot to mention in my previous post was that I hope LLV builds additional parking near the village. I know you can park at the structure, but I find it more convenient to park in the section near the market. However once that area becomes filled, people start parking in the dirt area. It'd be nice if LLV converted that to additional paved parking spaces. Anyone know what they plan is for that dirt section? It's a pretty sizeable piece of land and a waste to leave it the way it currently is. Perhaps do a parking lot and park like setting combo with a playset so that younger kids can spend time playing while their parents grab a cup of coffee and watch. Something like that can directly or indirectly help the businesses in the village.
With regards to the Casino, it does look a bit nicer than before, but I've always been one to believe that human interaction at the table games helps make a place. The digital 21's and what have you didn't impress me too much. But hopefully one day the traditional style of gaming can come back.
I second the opinion that LLV should offer some type of bike rental at a fair price. If they can get trails built out throughout LLV once all the phases are done, I think it'll be a great recreational choice for residents and visitors.
All in all LLV can easily become a family oriented place unlike any other in the greater Vegas area.
Wife and I were wondering about the undeveloped land down by the market as well. On the old master-plan map it was listed as part of the village, so perhaps they had planned for the village to expand to fill that space. I also noticed that the master plan map has changed on the llv website. Master Plan Map The new map simply shows all of the current developments and denotes a large swath of the map as "Future Communities".
@ Rebel, that area is still slated to be a condo project called Lascala. It originally owned by intrawest, then sold to pacific capital/signal butte (who now own the retail part of the village) and it was recently sold to another company in AZ in April.
That is PRIME waterfront property. The plan was to have condos on top and retail on the bottom. There has been talk of putting high end office space there instead. However, it is still zoned condo and once things get rolling again, would make some great view condos.
Actually, just part of that empty lot is zone and slated for the Lascala Condos. The eastern half of the water front lot and including the lot where the ugly white tent is located is owned by another company. It is just zoned as tourist commercial. It was just purchased in 2010 for about 18 million dollars. I'm not sure what that will be. High end office space could be a good idea, as it will bring a different captive foot traffic to LLV.
@ RebalFan, thanks for the link. As usual, the LVSUN made the title of the article mis-leading. Causing one to think that LLV is still in bankruptcy, which of course, Lake Las Vegas exited Bankruptcy a year ago. This article has to do with just the creditors and nothing to do with Lake Las Vegas itself.
