With a great lineup of entertainment, two floors of gaming, several dining choices, three trendy bars and one of the best vantage points for the Fremont Street Experience light and sound show, The D Las Vegas is a hotspot in downtown.
The resort has a sexy, contemporary vibe. Its moniker -- The D Las Vegas -- pays tribute to its location in the resurging downtown scene as well as represents the Detroit roots of its owners. CEO Derek Stevens is also called "D" by his friends.
The accommodations (629 rooms and suites) are stylish and comfortable, and the casino floor is modern and vibrant. Gorgeous "Dancing Dealers" make the betting action more exciting.
There are two high-energy bars -- the Longbar, which stretches the length of the casino and is lined by 15 big-screen TVs, and the outdoor D Bar with flair bartenders. Plus, a state-of-the-art sound system has been installed to keep the music pumping and the party going throughout the premises.
The D Las Vegas is the only downtown casino/hotel with two floors of gambling action. On the first floor you'll discover the latest in slot, video and table gaming as well as a high-limit area. Those who want to enjoy vintage Vegas can head to the second floor, which is home to classic coin-operated machines and a Sigma Derby simulated horse racing game.
To enjoy a full evening at the resort, check out its headlining entertainment: the dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" and "Defending the Caveman," which is the longest running one-man show in Broadway history. Or just sip on a cocktail and take in the sights of bustling Fremont Street from the Vue Bar, which boasts both indoor and outdoor patio seating.
Afternoons are also a blast at The D. Comedy magician Adam London appears in "LaughterNoon."
For a superb meal in a refined setting (without the high price tag!), Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse features authentic Italian food, succulent steaks and great service. The dishes originated from the recipes of late Master Chef Aldo Ottaviani and are prepared from scratch daily. In addition to an extensive wine list, the restaurant boasts amazing cuts of meat from the nation's top butchers, including Pat LaFrieda and Stockyard Premium beef and all-natural Strauss Brands lamb and veal. Among the items not to miss are the Andiamo Grande Meatball, the homemade gnocchi and desserts like the cannoli and bread pudding.
Casual dining options include McDonald's and the 24-hour D Grill, which boasts a menu offering more than 75 breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert items all prepared from scratch (all the ingredient are fresh -- nothing is ever frozen!). Plus, a Detroit staple, American Coney Island, can be found here -- it's first location outside of Michigan! So this is the only place in town where you can get the famous Dearborn Sausage Company brand hotdog with the Keros family secret special recipe chili sauce.
