Opening Day For New O’Sheas

LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — A storefront Las Vegas Strip casino known for its casual party atmosphere is reopening after closing in 2012 to make way for an outdoor promenade and Big Wheel project.

O’Sheas casino is expected to open its doors on Friday after a formal ribbon cutting ceremony.

The Irish-themed casino, owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp. closed in April 2012 to make room for Caesars’ $550 million Linq Project, which includes an observation wheel that will be the largest in the world when it debuts next year.

The new O’Sheas features elements of the original casino, including beer pong and foosball.
