The hotel and casino will be built in two primary phases. At full build-out, the Moulin Rouge Hotel & Casino will be the centerpiece for a comprehensive master plan development of the west side of Las Vegas encompassing a Performing Arts Center, World Entertainment Center (WEC) complex, mixed-use residential/commercial and retail components, and high-rise condominium apartment projects transforming the area into “Uptown” Las Vegas. With over $400 million of “minority” money being spent in Las Vegas each year, MRDC is poised to capture a large portion of this revenue through a two-phase build-out. Phase One is anticipated to be a locals and destination hotel and casino, while Phase Two will be geared toward attracting small to large conventions that continue to be a large revenue generator to the world’s most popular city. 


Phase One - The first phase of the Moulin Rouge Hotel & Casino maximizes the unrestricted gaming license with an over 25,000 SF gaming floor, 400 new hotel rooms with “Venetian Style” suites in one hi-rise tower, two restaurants including a buffet, 40,000 SF of convention and meeting rooms, as well as a pool-side night club. Included is a 1,200- seat show room, a 200-seat jazz center, two lounges, a “Vegas” style pool with a pool-side sports book, and over 25,000 SF supporting retail and spa facilities. The night club and pool areas will emphasize live performances. The new hotel will also incorporate the current historic “Moulin Rouge” neon sign as well as portions of the original casino façade. A 5,000 SF historical museum is also included in the initial phase of the project.


Phase One will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs to the west side of Las Vegas and will include major public subsidy for roadway and pedestrian improvements. At its completion, the hi-rise hotel tower will be a visible historic landmark that will become a beacon for the newly created “Uptown” Las Vegas.

Phase Two: is currently in the conceptual design phase, which will include additional gaming floor, retail spaces, entertainment, and restaurant venues as well as an additional hotel tower containing 1,000 new hotel rooms along with 50,000 SF of new convention space and associated structured parking facilities. The conceptual design of Phase II is completed with full design and construction drawings commencing as market demand dictates the need for additional hotel keys. 


Master Plan: LVMR continues to acquire adjacent properties that surround the Moulin Rouge Hotel & Casino. This includes land to the east where the new alignment of Freeway Interstate 15 will see a new off ramp directly onto West Bonanza Road, land to the north that is owned and controlled by the Housing and Urban Development Department, and properties across West Bonanza Road (south) in order to accommodate Phase Three of the planned development.
