Editor in Chief Glenn Haussman is in Las Vegas for an interview focused once again on the awesome reinvention of the downtown area. He’s talked about it a couple of times on this show in the past because of the significant shift that’s occurring. Something other cities can also learn from.

In the case of downtown Las Vegas, there has been a burst of new cultural centers, restaurants and bars that are turning this area into a true urban environment. And when mixed up with new casino resorts such as Downtown Grand, it’s had the effect of reenergizing and transforming this part of town into something very different than what you see on The Strip.

To show you how far downtown has come we chat with Seth Schorr, the CEO of Downtown Grand (http://www.downtowngrand.com) about how they turned the ailing Lady Luck casino into an exciting new urban oasis that’s more like the Meatpacking District or Williamsburg in New York than a typical Las Vegas Casino.

They discuss what it took to transform the property, how they expect to flourish, who they’re targeting and how and also how critical it is to be a part of the downtown community.

Join us here each week for a great new show!
