The Strip’s newest addition, Encore Las Vegas, launched its Web site today, giving visitors a sneak peek at Steve Wynn’s $2.3 billion luxury resort and casino.
The Web site features a commercial produced by “X-Men” and “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner, with Wynn atop his newest resort. The commercial is airing nationally on CNBC, Fox News, CNN and Bloomberg Television, and regionally on stations in Nevada, California and Arizona.
The Web site introduces The Mirage’s resident comedian Danny Gans as Encore’s headline performer.
The 2,034-room hotel, expected to open Dec. 22, is next to the Wynn Las Vegas. Encore will include five restaurants, 11 retail stores, seven bars and a nightclub.
