Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- 2014 not only begins a brand new year, but it also signals the beginning of a new era on the Las Vegas Strip.
You won't be able to walk more than half a block without seeing something new.
What's new for 2014? Plenty.
The LINQ, The Quad, the Grand Bazaar Shops, a yet unnamed boutique hotel and the return of a favorite local watering hole.
Is there anything that can top all of that?
"I have to believe it's the High Roller. I just think that's such a great project, the scope of it, the size of it. I'm really intrigued to see how it operates," said David Honemeyer, president of Paris, Bally's and Planet Hollywood.
What about something a little more down to earth?
Caesars Entertainment is bringing back a local favorite in The Quad.
"We are going to have the same old O'Sheas. Same price points. $5 blackjack games. We are going to have beer pong everyday starting at 3 p.m. and live entertainment seven days a week. It's going to be great," said Jason Frese with O'Sheas.
But that's not all. Walk a little south and you'll find The LINQ later this year.
Plus, the old Bill's Gamblin' Hall is being turned into a boutique hotel with plush rooms, fine restaurants, even a pool on the roof. However, it hasn't been named yet.
That project is expected to be finished this year as well.
Across the street, in front of Bally's, there will soon be the Grand Bazaar Shops.
Caesars Entertainment said it's invested about $1 billion on these projects and more in the past 36 months.
