HONG KONG, Macau - As reported by the New York Times: "The City of Dreams casino complex opened in Macau last Monday, complete with giant crowds and fireworks. Two scions of the gambling industry
City of Dreams in Macau in Asia, Lawrence Ho and James Packer, set the rock groove by smashing a guitar each in front of the Hard Rock Hotel.
The new resort is the first major casino opening in almost two years in the former Portuguese colony, since the Venetian Macau launched in August 2007. The City of Dreams sits on the Cotai Strip, a long street of reclaimed land, directly opposite the Venetian, which at 550,000 square feet houses the largest gambling hall in the world.
The City of Dreams features the 420,000-square-foot casino itself, and will ultimately have 175,000 square feet of luxury retail in its shopping mall. At the Hard Rock, tourists can pore over Madonna’s hot pants and bustier; Pink’s guitar; one of Michael Jackson’s silver sequined gloves; the Hong Kong-based singer Jacky Cheung’s scarf, sweater and bow tie; and a yellow fur coat with black trim that Elvis Presley himself once wore.
There’s also a Crown Towers hotel for high rollers, and a Grand Hyatt hotel is scheduled to open at the City of Dreams later this year..."
