A handful of businesses are now open at The Linq, the $550 million entertainment district being built by Caesars Entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip. Tenants of the open-air, pedestrian-only district, located  in the corridor between The Quad and the Flamingo, began their debut in late December with the opening of Irish-themed gaming joint O’Sheas (read that story here). The following tenants have since opened their doors:

Get a flavored daiquiri with or without alcohol and served in a funky glass at Purple Zebra. Colors not limited to purple. Yum. (Photo by Aleza Freeman).

Koto: A fun retail shop with a handful of quirky items such as shot-spinning games, camera lens-shaped coffee mugs (ummm, yes please!), a ton of super cool iPhone and iPad cases (the tape cassette one is my favorite), colorful phone chargers, contact lens cases, glasses and fedoras.

Purple Zebra: A retail and daiquiri shop selling candy, drink glasses in all sorts of funky shapes like saxophones and women’s legs, and a plethora of delicious daiquiri options in purple and other colors served by men and women dressed in what I can only describe as Zoo-Burlesque-Chic.

Chayo: A Mexican restaurant and bar with a random, yet oddly enticing, mechanical bull as well as a large second floor outdoor balcony with a fireplace.

The Haute Doggery: A gourmet hot dog joint from the creators of Holsteins, LBS, The Barrymore and Public House.

Starbucks: If you’ve never heard of Starbucks, then this blog post can’t help you.

When completed in 2014, The Linq will be jam-packed with dining, entertainment and shopping opportunities including Yard House, The Polaroid Museum, Tilted Kilt, Sprinkles Cupcakes and Flour & Barley. Its anchor attraction, a 550-foot-tall observation wheel called the High Roller is scheduled to open in late March according to a recent interview with High Roller General Manager Eric Eberhart on CNET (see below).

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at the spa, shoot holes in zombies and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Las Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Google+ and Twitter.
